Every self-proclaimed foodie should find their way to the cobblestones of a rustic Italian town. It’s there you’ll find the intoxicating aromas of oregano and garlic, the same pungent spices that turn ordinary, other-worldly chickpeas into an unforgettable hummus. This creamy dip takes on a totally different façade when infused with classic Italian flavors and the not-so-traditional nuttiness of hemp oil. On second thought, consider Italy just the first stop on this tastemaker trip.
