|A mouth-watering version of the Peperone Crusco|
|For a quick snack or a signature end to a meal|
|Crunchy and balanced|
Crusco pepper is an all-Lucanian delicacy. The process to prepare it is relatively simple but it is necessary to follow some small precautions to obtain a Crusco worthy of the name. Tradition dictates using the Senise IGP Pepper, endowed with a fine skin and unique organoleptic characteristics, grown in the area of the same name and left to dry. Once dried, the bell pepper must be fried; only at this point, after being salted, can a unique product be enjoyed.
This version of Crusco pepper is the result of Enrico and Maddalena’s genius and desire to experiment. The bell pepper, once fried, is covered with dark chocolate for a spectacular combination that perfectly balances the two flavors without one overpowering the other. This little gem is complemented by pairing it with a red wine suitable for enjoying with chocolate, with an excellent whiskey or grappa. You must try it at least once in your life.

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 website.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent 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 shipping time while protecting 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.
