Explore The Pairing


Arugula is a leafy green vegetable from the Eruca sativa plant. The plant also produces edible flowers, seed pods and mature seeds. Grown in the Mediterranean region, it was considered an aphrodisiac in ancient Roman times.

Quince Jam

Most varieties of quince are too hard and sour to be eaten raw and require cooking, making them ideal for jams, jellies or quince pudding. The word “marmalade” derives from the Portuguese word for quince, marmelo.
