EarthKosher began with a conscious goal of specializing in kosher certification for smaller companies, making the process doable, down to earth and affordable. EarthKosher provides kosher certification to such companies all over the world. We proudly provide kosher certification from California to the Canadian Prairies- from Sri Lanka to New York City! Many of the companies that wear the EarthKosher kosher certification logo, began in small warm kitchens, with family or close friends, and were grown with love, energy and a desire to share wholesome traditions. Nestled in a small kitchen in Winnipeg, Piccola Cucina is one of these companies.
Piccola Cucina specializes in Italian specialty products made with the goodness of almonds. Each product is made with the utmost care and attention; handmade and manufactured in a dedicated gluten free commercial facility in Winnipeg. This commitment to excellence maintains the high integrity, quality and freshness on which the business runs.
There is a lot of debate about the exact origin of Macaroons, although many histories believe this confection can be traced back to Italian monasteries. The first macaroons were almond meringue cookies similar to today’s amaretti, with a crisp crust and a soft interior. They were made from egg whites and almond paste (a combination of equal parts of ground blanched almonds and sugar, mixed with egg whites). The name of the cookie comes from the Italian word for paste, maccarone (mah-kah-ROW-nay). Today, these treats are enjoyed all over the world in a variety of styles.
Fast forward to 2009 and Piccola Cucina (Little Kitchen) was born from a passion for family, love, sharing and enjoying good quality food. Owned and operated by a powerhouse team of mother and daughter; this duet joined forces to deliver handmade, gourmet baked goods, using traditional family recipes. Piccola Cucina now provides an ever-growing selection of products that warm the heart and comfort the soul, including a variety of flavour creations of the traditional Macaroon.
Piccola Cucina offers six delicious, hand- crafted, gluten free varieties of Italian Macaroons: Pistachioretti, Walnutti, Limotti, Chocoretti, Amaretti and Coconutti. All six varieties have kosher certification from EarthKosher kosher certification agency.
Piccola Cucina also offers gluten- free Almond Pie Shells made with the same nutritional goodness of almonds, and all the flavour of a rich pie shell. There are two types to choose from- regular and unsweetened, both varieties are sold frozen, and have kosher certification from EarthKosher.
Enjoy life, with EarthKosher.
