Trip to Abruzzo

I had the opportunity to finally visit one of my favourite regions in Italy: Abruzzo. I landed in Rome on the 13th January 2014 and after collecting a car, my trip started. The A25 motorway is a very panoramic route and after a quick stop for a needed espresso at the services station I reached the beautiful  Sulmona, the world renowned town of confetti. Once there I met the owner of one of the oldest factory producing these delicious confectionery products: William Di Carlo Confetti di Sulmona. He took me for a tour around the production area where I had the chance to see all these little almonds becoming pretty gems covered in sugar. The machine used to make these classic sweets is called a “bassina” which is a big permanently rotating mixing ball. Then I had a walk around William’s shop which is simply breath-taking: beautiful edible flavours, soft and hard torrone, Sicilian pistachio sugar coated in one section and another section is totally dedicated to the wedding planning. After about 3 hours, sadly, I had to leave to carry on with my journey. Thank you William for showing me your world. Read More…

How Beviamo Started July 2012

Welcome to Beviamo Ltd, the new company in Cheshire selling the best Gourmet Italian Food and Drink. So how did we start and what made was the catalyst for the incarnation that is Beviamo Ltd. Well myself Mike Williams the director had always had a passion for all things Italian going back to when I was a child and I used to read the guides my grandparents had brought home from their travels in Italy. I was obsessed with the art, culture, food and football. It seemed a million miles away to a 6 year old but I think something stuck with me, something that stirred when I got older. As a 10 year old I was wearing an Inter Milan kit thanks to a gift from my grandparents, I did ask for Juventus but hey I was not complaining. At this time it was difficult to get kits from European Teams, so I was chuffed to bits to have an authentic football kit. Read More…

Sicily Road Trip

In July 2011 we decided that a trip to Sicily was needed and specifically to Caltanisetta to visit Italian Frozen Food. This company makes the most incredible traditional savoury products like the famous Arancini and wonderful patisserie like the equally famous Cannoli. I was determined to try some way to bring these products to the UK market and to allow people to try these amazing hand made Sicillian delicacies. I asked Cristiano to call Daniele (the sales manager) to set up a visit to the factory and to taste the products for ourselves. Read More…
