The Best Ways To Use Balsamic Vinegar Cream

Safeguarding and passing on the secrets of tradition, while closely monitoring new trends: this has always been an important part of our work.

Every day we carefully observe how tastes and culinary habits are changing, not only among Italians, in order to create new products that are simple to use on a daily basis.

In recent years, we have seen cooking come back in fashion: TV programs, influencers who talk about food and increasingly high-profile Michelin-starred chefs have brought a more modern and creative approach to everyone’s attention, which has enabled many people to discover a new passion or a new way of cooking and serving the most popular recipes.

Our Organic Modena Balsamic Vinegar Cream was designed to satisfy these new requirements, with the aim of creating a direct link between the Italian gastronomic tradition and the most modern cuisine.

Perfect for those who want to give their recipes an extra touch of originality and a unique flavor worth of the most renowned chefs.

A symphony of flavor inspired by simplicity

The secret that makes our Organic Modena Balsamic Vinegar Cream so special is its simple recipe, which combines balsamic vinegar of Modena P.G.I. (39%), cooked must and concentrated grape must, all organically farmed. Our recipe is also caramel-free: we have chosen to offer our customers a 100% natural experience.

Thanks to its astonishingly pleasant taste, consisting of floral and fruity notes, and to its dense, creamy consistency, it offers true poetry for every dish: it is the final brushstroke of an artist decorating a plate or a conductor’s last baton wave, enhancing the taste of every course with its unmistakable sweet and sour notes.

Our Organic Modena Balsamic Vinegar Cream is a versatile condiment that is a must-have in the kitchen because it pairs well with many recipes and is easy to use: the practical squeeze bottle features a non-drip stopper that is perfect for dispensing the desired amount and for garnishing dishes with precise decorations. You can give free rein to your creativity.

Cream vs balsamic vinegar. So similar, yet so different

Although they are made with similar ingredients and are used in the kitchen in comparable ways, balsamic vinegar cream and balsamic vinegar of Modena are actually two different products with distinct and very different characteristics.

Modernity vs tradition
The first difference is age-related. Cream is an innovative product that was created in recent years to meet the need to garnish and decorate dishes with a creative touch; balsamic vinegar of Modena, on the other hand, has a centuries-old history as one of the most popular condiments in the Italian culinary tradition, ideal for giving food sweet and sour notes.

Creaminess vs fluidity
While their respective ages are the first difference that comes to mind, their consistency is the second obvious characteristic that sets the two products apart from each other: the cream has a dense, creamy consistency and is easy to mold, which makes it easy to use in the kitchen to create unique garnishes; balsamic vinegar of Modena, on the other hand, is considerably more liquid and is designed to be generously spread on our dishes.

In cooking vs on the table
Both are considered condiments, but the main difference between the two products is their respective location. While the cream is generally used in cooking to add a final touch just before the dish is served, balsamic vinegar is almost always on the table, passed between diners who wish to add flavor to their dishes.

Freshness vs aging

Do things improve with age? Not everything. Cream, for example, is a fresh product that does not require aging. By contrast, the specification for balsamic vinegar of Modena requires that it is refined for at least two months. Our Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is aged for a year in high-quality wooden barrels and barriques before it reaches the desired quality.

The Cream and Balsamic Vinegar have one characteristic in common and you can discover it on our website and in our Emporiums: the care with which they are made, starting from selected raw materials and carefully designed recipe.

The innovative condiment for the most classic recipes

Our Organic Modena Balsamic Vinegar Cream pairs deliciously with all the most common recipes: fresh salads, vegetables and roasted meat or fish, while also giving a sweet and sour touch to fruit salads.

You can try it on bruschetta. While you are toasting the bread, cut a handful of tomatoes into cubes and season them with a drizzle of Carli Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Rub a clove of garlic on each slice of the bread, season with cherry tomatoes and finally evenly garnish with drops of our Balsamic Vinegar Cream. Your appetizer will not only taste delicious, but also look gorgeous!

It just takes a few ingredients to make a tasty summer salad: 300 g green beans, 1 bunch of rocket, 1 jar of Fratelli Carli Artichoke Hearts, 300 g canned cannellini beans, a drizzle of Carli Extra Virgin Olive Oil, salt, pepper and a few drops of our Balsamic Vinegar Cream.

Try it on fruit: strawberries, raspberries and blackberries are the best-known pairings, but it also goes perfectly with pineapple or figs.

It just takes a few drops to liven up your dishes: there is no ideal quantity of cream to use based on the recipe, so you can experiment to discover your preferred balance.

The cream: how and where you’ve never tried it

On fried food? A degreasing taste. When it comes to French fries, the most classic combinations are with mayonnaise and ketchup, while some people prefer mustard. If you want to try something different, we recommend a few drops of our Balsamic Vinegar Cream: the taste of vinegar makes the fries lighter and tastier.

On pizza? Unbelievable! If you love homemade gourmet pizza then you must have already tried out new combinations with your favorite ingredients. Our recipe? Mozzarella, ham, parmesan flakes and a few drops of our Balsamic Vinegar Cream evenly sprinkled over each slice.

On ice cream? An absolute treat! Because a couple of dashes of our Balsamic Vinegar Cream will intensify the sweetness of an excellent homemade vanilla ice cream or a slice of meringue.
