The idea of Rustichella d’Abruzzo pantry is to respect the seasonality of products, aiming at always guaranteeing supply of vegetables that are not available in certain months of the year. The pantry used to be in the past a symbol of richness and solidity of a family. In fact, Italy has often experienced food shortage over the years and to own a large full pantry was synonym of respectable lifestyle. Nowadays the pantry usually reminds us of families preparing tomato purees for the winter during summertime. This is a proof that Italians still follow the traditions they have learned from their parents and grandparents, who state that crop preservation is a symbol of massive respect towards nature and seasons.
