Giveaway: DeLallo Foods

Most of you know that I’m an Italian girl. I grew up around Italian foods and traditions my entire life. My grandfather had a commercial-grade deli slicer in his basement and would buy a whole prosciutto leg and slice it thinly as needed. We do the fish tradition on Christmas Eve. Our cookie jars were filled with homemade biscotti instead of Oreos or chocolate chip cookies.

Pittsburgh is a pretty ethnic city with lots of Italians, so it’s not hard to find traditional ingredients at regular grocery stores or little Italian groceries sprinkled throughout the city and suburbs. One of my favorite brands is one from right here in Pittsburgh – DeLallo. They make pastas, sauces, spreads, marinated artichokes and olives, olive oils, vinegars, and much more. I actually just used a jar of their crushed tomatoes to make pizza sauce last night! Their products are phenomenal and I want to share a huge basket of them with you!

As I mentioned in the Sarris Candies giveaway, this year I am foregoing the big holiday giveaways and focusing on just a couple of local Pittsburgh businesses that I genuinely love and want to share with you. DeLallo is definitely one of them! So, I am giving away this DeLallo Italian Feast gift basket to one lucky reader:

This amazing gift basket includes all of the following items:

- Artichoke bruschetta
- 2 packages of traditional breadsticks
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Pesto sauce in olive oil
- Blue cheese stuffed olives
- Potato gnocchi
- Marinara sauce
- Vodka sauce
- Roasted red peppers
- Organic whole wheat penne rigate
- Organic whole wheat fettuccine
- Penne rigate
- Linguine
- Whole grain cinnamon, almond, and oats biscotti
- Lasagna
- Sun-dried tomatoes
- Balsamic vinegar spray
- Full-length white DeLallo apron
- DeLallo recipe book

An Italian feast for sure!!
