Vallebona draws inspiration from the idea historic family kitchen table. It was not only a table but a stage, pulpit, podium and theatre. The table was a place to discuss, to debate, to talk, to share and reflect. Everyone who came to the table came as an equal and as a friend.
Table is the Vallebona metaphor for sharing. Sharing thought, sharing knowledge, sharing ideas and, of course, sharing food.
Vallebona has been providing Michelin starred chefs and five star hotels with authentic Italian ingredients for the past 20 years. Stefano, who runs the business today with his wife Naoko, is a 3rd generation importer and wholesaler of fine Italian products. His inherent love of food and respect for ingredients is ingrained in his values – passed down to him by his great-great grandfather who started the family business in 1890.
The store at Coal Drops Yard holds a unique range of both Italian and Japanese ingredients, with a focus on luxury gifting and hampers. Vallebona’s specialist products are hand-picked by Stefano and Naoko, and range from artisanal Gragnano pastas and small-batch panettones from Turin, to four-year-old soy sauce from Shodoshima Island, and rare yuzu marmalade.
Vallebona also offers a bespoke catering service for events of all sizes.
