Tarallini are crispy snacks that are sold in bakeries throughout Italy. Now you can try this classic Italian snack from Crosta & Mollica, made with Italian extra virgin olive oil and flavoured with fennel seeds. Available from Waitrose and Ocado.
2. Galvanina Sicilian Lemon Organic Sparkling Drink - £1.59

This refreshing white wine is flavoured with white peach and melon for a citrusy finish. The wine pairs perfectly with seafood and creamy pasta dishes and we love how smooth and fruity it is on the palate. Available from Waitrose.
