Authentic Range of Italian Food
All our products are authentically made in Italy, with Italian ingredients. They are passionately crafted by Italian family companies with generations of expertise. With true Italian flavour, choose Cook Italia when you cook Italian!
Grown on southern Italy’s fertile plains and vine-ripened to perfection under the hot Mediterranean sun, Cook Italian’s tomatoes give the true taste of Italy in a range to suit every recipe.
Cook Italian’s pasta is authentically crafted in Italy with Italian ingredients in a beautiful assortment of shapes and types including premium Bronze Die, organic and wholewheat pasta.
Italian Wholewheat Pasta
All Cook Italian pasta is made from Italian durum wheat semolina, and our wholewheat pasta retains the outer bran and wheat germ of the wheat grains which means it has more natural fibre and protein. As a result, they tend to be more filling, and have a more dense texture and a darker colour. They take the same amount of time to cook as regular pasta, and can be used in any of your favourite recipes.
Bronze Die Pasta
Made in Italy by the Di Martino family company, our premium Bronze Die Italian 100% Durum Wholewheat Pasta is shaped through forms, known as dies, which are made in the traditional way from bronze metal – hence Bronze Die. The surface of the bronze die is slightly rough, so the pasta has a rougher surface too, which you can see clearly on our Bronze Die pasta. This means that your sauce clings to the pasta, rather than pooling in the dish. We then slowly dry our premium pasta for a better texture… altogether the best Italian Pasta experience!
In October 2013, the authenticity and provenance of Cook Italian Bronze Die Pasta was recognised with the prestigious IGP Award for Spaghetti, Linguine, Fusilli, Penne, Conchiglie and Rigatoni. IGP stands for Indicazione Geografica Protetta, which means ‘protected geographical indication’ and guarantees the quality and provenance of traditionally-made regional products.
Bronze Die Wholewheat Pasta
All Cook Italian pasta is made from Italian durum wheat semolina, and our wholewheat pasta retains the outer bran and wheat germ of the wheat grains which means it has more natural fibre and protein. As a result, our Wholewheat pastas tend to be more filling, with a more dense texture and a darker colour. Our Bronze Die Wholewheat is also shaped through our bronze metal forms – known as ‘dies’ – to give it a rougher surface which sauces cling to perfectly. Bronze Die pasta is also slowly air-dried for a better texture to give you a truly satisfying dish!
Our Italian pasta is made in Italy with Italian durum wheat semolina for the true taste of Italy every time you Cook Italian! Delicious in all your favourite recipes, it shines in Pasta Bakes too and comes in many shapes and sizes to suit any occasion and sauce.
Gluten Free Pasta
No gluten now means no compromise. For favourite Italian pasta dishes for the whole family to enjoy together, our NEW Gluten Free range is naturally high in protein and fibre, with high quality carbohydrates.
And it’s quick to cook too, in 6 to 8 minutes, with a full portion of your 5 a-day fruit and vegetables per serving (80g of dried pasta, about 180g when cooked).
Our truly Italian gluten free pasta is made from green peas or red lentils which are dried and ground, then made into pasta in the traditional Italian way.
