Our spicy Italian herb blend gets its reddish colour from a mix of paprika, chili flakes and dried tomatoes. Its subtle rosemary, parsley, bay leaf, basil and garlic notes quickly give way to the heat of chili pepper.
Those who like it hot will want to season all their dishes with our spicy Italian herb blend! Add a pinch to ground beef patties to give your burgers a kick, or combine with olive oil to make a marinade for grilled meats. It is also the secret ingredient behind caliente pizzas!
Our blend contains seasonings picked daily in the fields of Granarolo dell'Emilia, a municipality in Italy's Emilia-Romagna region. Bordered by the Po River in the north and the Apennine Mountains in the south, the region is one of the country's most fertile, thanks to its temperate climate.
Back in 1968, Franco Berti and his wife Franca had the idea to commercialize salt infused with herbs, a widely used and much loved ingredient in Italian family kitchens. The blend was originally made by carefully crushing salt and freshly picked herbs with an empty wine bottle. Today, three generations of Bertis are proudly perpetuating the tradition.
