Carmelo and George 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 have created a unique product.
A DREAM WAS BORN
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.

We are absolutely going nuts as five of our products were awarded Great Taste stars by the Guild of Fine Food. Having launched only a year ago, and having joined the awards for the first time, we couldn't be more thrilled.
Top marks for our Pistachio Paste for achieving 3 stars and being picked as one of Top 50 Foods for 2017. Judges described it as "having a wonderful aroma...really deep intensity with pure fresh pistachio flavour...warm sunny layers of flavour...great, pure, natural..with an admirable show of restraint and treatment...concentrated loveliness."
