The brand’s very name is an homage to one of history’s most powerful dynasties, the Medici family of Florence, Italy. Every time they would conquer a new village, the rulers would stamp a local building with the Medici seal, officially making it a borgo de’ Medici. The Medici ascended to power because they were one of the most wealthy and powerful banking families in Tuscany, and it was with that money that they helped patronize the arts, turning Florence into a hotbed of culture during the Renaissance. The Tuscan food brand Borgo de’ Medici is extremely proud of their local heritage, and they desire nothing more than to share Tuscan cuisine with the world.
Sharing Tuscan Cuisine
Borgo de’ Medici formed in Prato, Tuscany, in 1999. Their philosophy, “living Tuscany,” continues to inspire their products every day. Using only artisan methods and non-GMO ingredients, Borgo de’ Medici produces a stunning array of Tuscan food items, savory and sweet. Their magnificent collection includes risotto, pasta, sauce, herbs, olive oil and balsamic glaze. For dessert, sample their many flavors of macarons, chocolate truffles, and fruit preserves. Their festive Christmas catalog features tasty variations of panettone, torrone, candied nuts, and panforte that the whole family will enjoy!
Make Food, Make an Experience
Part of what makes Borgo de’ Medici special is their meal kits. Turn a lovely Tuscan-inspired meal into an activity for yourself, your family, or your date night partner with kits for pesto focaccia, truffle pizza, strawberry crostata, and more! Not only do they include the gourmet ingredients you’ll need to make the recipes, but also special cutting tools for serving. Enjoy being part of the Tuscan tradition with Borgo de’ Medici!
