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

- Roasted red peppers
- Organic whole wheat penne rigate

- Penne rigate
- Linguine
- Whole grain cinnamon, almond, and oats biscotti

An Italian feast for sure!!

    My grandmother’s amazing eggplant parmigiana, which she used to make especially for me each holiday because I didn’t like turkey. Now that grandma is gone and no one else’s eggplant parmigiana even come close I’d have to say canoli.

    Reply

  26. Katy on December 12, 2010 at 9:18 am

    Oh my gosh, this is such a difficult question. I’ll have to say gnocchi! Growing up, I only knew them as “pillows” but that name doesn’t do the fluffy dumpling justice :)

    P.S. GO PENS!!

    Pesto on bowties or penne is definitely at the top of my all time favorite foods. That’s my favorite meal, but of course you can’t think of great italian food without dessert too, and tiramisu is pretty much a creation of the gods! :)
