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!

Italian Tomatoes

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.

Italian Pasta

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!

Regular Pasta

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.

Made in Italy by the Mennucci family who have been making gluten-free products for decades for the true taste and texture of Italian pasta, every time you Cook Italian!

Italian Grated Hard Cheese

Using only authentic medium-fat Italian hard cheese, this adds a finishing flourish to a host of Italian dishes. Don’t be fooled by its pack: it’s not the nasty, smelly cheese of the 70s! Ours is authentic and tastes great. Keep it with your salt and pepper pots and remember to sprinkle it over pasta, bakes, soups and meat dishes whenever you … Cook Italian!

No authentic Italian range would be credible without offering Pizzas! Our Pizza Kit is crafted from genuinely Italian ingredients: premium’00’ Grade flour; rich Italian tomato topping made from concentrated tomato purée and the Italian classic, oregano. Quick, easy and very satisfying to make, just add a little water and ideally Italian (Cook Italian) Olive Oil and a good knead. Then add any toppings before popping into the oven for a few minutes. Bellissimo!
