Carmelo di Bartolo and George Smith met at an international food show in Paris in 2012. Both are seasoned professionals in the nut industry, but more importantly both have a curious passion for all things nuts that go beyond the call of duty.
They have become buddies since then and during the summer of 2013 they experimented with a special pistachio paste recipe for commercial chefs and bakers. This was launched in February 2014 and they soon realised they had created a unique product.
Both nutty guys agreed that a range of artisan nut pastes and creams would be perfect for foodies who love to bake and make ice creams. A dream was born, but the challenge was to choose which ones would create the biggest smile. After many months of deliberation and visits to Sicily looking at nut trees, participating in the harvest, meeting nut growers who would have to be as committed to quality as they were, the big decision to embrace the dream was taken in September 2015.
In April 2016, The Nut Kitchen was born.
All of our nut products are proudly made on the Italian island of Sicily, a food lover's paradise and known as the garden of Europe due to its rich and diverse food production and gastronomic heritage.
Sicilian artisans hand-pick our nuts to turn them into delicious jars of nut pastes and creams. All our products are naturally free from palm oil and salt - the way Mother Nature intended.
