The sunshine tomato (pomodoro al sole or pomodoro a’ sole, in dialect of the Valle del Sele) is a traditional tomato’s variety we grow in our farm.

It is a red, round, pulpy tomato with a sweet taste. As the name suggests, it mainly needs a lot of sun to grow and to get its maturation. In our fields the sun accompanies all the phases of our vegetable. In fact, we cultivate in open field, without using greenhouses.

The characteristics of this tomato are linked to the way in which the plants grow. Our plants are low and without support, in direct contact with the earth – clayey and arid, and this gives the fruit its fleshy consistency and full-bodied taste. They need few water to grow (usually they are watered in the evening, even once a week).

The plants are planted by hand one by one, and the tomatoes are also harvested manually, so that only the fruits that have reached full ripeness are chosen.

Fresh or in pure, the sunshine tomato (pomodoro al sole) satisfies every taste. Suitable for any preparation, from a basil-flavoured salad to dress a past dish.

Referring the nutritional fact, tomatoes are rich in water, vitamins, phosphorus, potassium and especially of lycopene, an antioxidant that gives it the classic red color.

Compared to the normal red tomatoes we find at supermarket, our pomodoro al sole has a double quantity of lycopene, for the benefit of our health.

What is lycopene and which are the benefits?

Lycopene, like all antioxidants, has a protective function against cellular aging, counteracting the action of free radicals. From many scientific researchers the benefits on our health have been listed:

  • • prevents stroke;
  • • benefits the eyes and the skin;
  • • protects the artery walls;
  • • combats bad LDL cholesterol;
  • • promotes heart health, reducing blood pressure and the risk of heart attack.

Casa Iuorio is born from the willingness of ​​cultivating autochthone vegetables, typical of our territory: Valle del Sele. And the need to satisfy an increasing demand: healthy and natural food, made of few ingredients, simple and good, as we were children.

Determined by this aspiration, we begun to transform the precious fruits of our land. Fragrant, genuine and very rich in nutrients, to offer the ancient flavours of our home.

We arranged in the open countryside of Palomonte, in the province of Salerno a large, modern and well-equipped kitchen.

Here we find new ideas every day, we adore creating not only preserves, but also pickles, sauces, creams, infusions. Our intent is to create a brand of excellent Italian food, which draws a visionary inspiration from the world of our grandparents and represents a point of reference for lovers of healthy and genuine food.

With great determination we started to put together experience on experience, supported by study and discipline. Not only the studies and the masters but also the years spent abroad have given us an important knowledge.

Who we are

Our team is composed of Claudio, Anna and Mirella, all of us have the same dream: to compete at the highest levels, knowing that we have inimitable products.

Claudio & Anna, both graduated in Foreign Languages ​​and with a long experience in the commercial field, especially in the export sector.

Claudio, lover of nature and passionate about agriculture, follows all the phases of the cultivation of the fields, helped by an expert agronomist.

Anna, who grew up in an “Irpina” family, with a great passion for healthy food and good food, has always referred to this model, also to propose new recipes for Casa Iuorio’s pantry.

Mirella, graduated in Environmental Sciences, always cultivates the desire to give substance to the protection of the territory, attracting the valorisation of her best products.

The recipe for excellence? The preparation!

Today it’s impossible to cultivate as 60 years ago or to reproduce the grandmother’s recipes equally. Thanks to the new knowledge many processes have been acquired and perfected thanks also to the  collaboration with specialists from different sectors.

The farmer regularly uses the collaboration of the agronomist to reduce/eliminate the use of pesticides and other chemical substances, while the food technologist has entered the kitchen to support us and allowing the traditional recipes to be preserved at their best in compliance with the best standards in order to guarantee food traceability, safety and quality.

Our team has thus expanded with a trusted agronomist, a professional accredited by the Campania region, collaborating with the University of Salerno and with the CRAA – Center for Applied Research in Agriculture. And with a food technologist, a high level expert, already a consultant to other prestigious Italian food companies.

This method  allows us to improve our non-intensive productions, that are all processed by hand in compliance with all current regulations.

Our products in the world

Our products are known and appreciated not only in Europe (Switzerland, France, Germany, Sweden,) but also in the most distant and difficult markets, such as Asia and Middle East. 

By now we know very well that when you deal with foreign markets you meet demanding and prepared customers, who know very well Italy and its food culture and have very specific requests.

Our customers abroad do not just want to taste the product and know that it is good and that it satisfies his taste buds. He also wants to have technical specifications of the product, know the nutritional values, as well as the sensory analysis and many other information that we must be ready to provide.

The Italian Carnival celebrations start this week till March 5th, on the  famous Fat Tuesday. Which ends all the Carnival celebrations and begins the Lent period.

The origins of Carnival date back to the Roman Saturnalia festival and Dionysian feasts in Greece. A feast characterized by unrestrained enjoyment and an opportunity to upend and subvert norms.

Jokes, masks, fun and good food characterize the Carnival celebrated in Alta Valle del Sele, where our family farm is located. Through the stories of our grandparents, and parents, we realized that Carnival celebrations completely changed compared to the 40s, 50s and 60s.

They used to disguise themselves with old clothes found at home, the typical “mascarata”, a costume party. They used to visit especially their neighbours, with improvised camouflages – the masks were called “ciavon”. Who opened the door had to guess the identity of the person hidden under the mask and while singing, dancing and joking, especially with the seniors of the house. Once the identity of the “mask” was revealed, bread and sausage were offered, as well as the unfailing “Chiacchiere” fried pastries (a dough made with extra virgin olive oil).

For the Fat Tuesday they prepared a soup with pork offal, fusilli with tomato sauce  made with small pieces of pork meat – stuffed hen and Chiacchiere.

The leftovers fusilli were not eaten the day after but they let eat them to the hens because believed that they could produce more eggs.

“Chiacchiere” fried pastries recipe

Typical sweet dessert of the Alta Valle del Sele Carnival, we want to propose here our ancient recipe. This year we prepared the dough with semi-wholemeal Risciola flour from the PiantaGrani, an ancient wheat from the Alta Valle del Sele and of course our extra virgin olive oil that we use to mix the doughs.

  • 400 g of semi-wholemeal Risciola flour, or Flour 00 Type
  • 3 eggs
  • 40 g of extra virgin olive oil
  • 40 g of sugar
  • Half glass of Vermouth
  • A pinch of salt
  • Grated lemon skin
