Elena Carradori has been our friend and source for authentic gourmet gift items for several years. Her shop, Dolceforte, is located in Florence near the church of Santa Maria Novella. Elena sources and sells fine Italian foods: gourmet chocolates, hand-made cookies, balsamic vinegar from Modena, Tuscan artisanal pasta and other gastronomic delights. Each product is carefully selected from local producers who prioritize and value environmentally friendly production methods, as well as the traditional recipes and wholesome flavors of old world Italy that we love. The actual Dolceforte box is handmade in Florence by a local artisan using patterned paper from the Tassotti di Bassano printing house or Carta Fiorentina. A Gift Box makes a delicious and thoughtful gift for anyone who loves Italy and the best of traditional Italian cuisine. Because each component of the box is included in the original packaging, the contents can also be given individually as smaller gifts to those on your holiday gift list or as an elegant hostess gift for those socially distanced holiday gatherings!
Dolceforte Gift Boxes are shipped directly from Florence, Italy. The price includes Express Shipping via FEDEX to the US.
