Cicerale is a small town located in the generous land of Cilento. Here chickpeas have always been the main source of livelihood and economy. In recent years, however, only a few people are left to carry on the cultivation of this delicious legume, which requires specific techniques that are sometimes very strenuous: Cicerale chickpeas, in fact, must first be weeded and left to dry under the Cilento sun, so that they can then be harvested towards the end of July. The plants are then laid on burlap sacks, covered and beaten with large wooden sticks to make the small dried chickpeas.
Francesco Vastola is one of the heroic farmers left to cultivate this little gem. With an intense aroma and flavor, Cicerale Chickpeas au naturel are suitable for use in a wide variety of preparations, such as creams, velvety soups and hummus. If you love pure legumes, try them only with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, to feel all the flavor of the Cilento land and sun.

Would you be willing, to save a small amount of money, to compromise your health and the pleasure that properly made food brings you? Here, the benefits of good Italian food, the fruit of the expert hands of true artisans of the table, are these.
Over the years the raw material has lost its soul and food has become something to be swallowed without too much attention. Therefore, the time has come for us to take back the pleasure of being at the table and to start taking care of our bodies again, not only in appearance but also through what we ingest. Making food our medicine is possible, but only if we know the exact origin of the raw material and the processing methods: we at Gustatium have thought about this for you, selecting the best small Italian producers and making them available to you on our site.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that for excellence products need excellence packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the time of shipment and at the same time protect the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
