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!!

    This post struck a chord with me, because I too grew up surrounded by Italian food (my mother’s side were Waterbury, CT Italians, and my aunt now lives in Pittsburgh!) After working on a farm outside of Bologna, I have to say that my leanings towards Italian food revolve largely around what can be done with tomatoes and zucchini. I love baby zucchini and fiori di zucca risotta! But, when push comes to shove, give me a nice scoop of gelato (chocolate hazelnut) and I will be happy!

    Such a hard choice! I was lucky enough to visit Italy earlier this year, and ate quite a bit of gelato (there was a festival in Florence!), biscotti, panforte, cheese, and pasta. I think my favorite meal of the trip was a little place in Rome that served a delicious orecchiette pasta. Yum!

    If I must select only one…prosciutto. It’s sublime on it’s own, but in addition, it enhances everything you set it with, as an appetizer, slivered into peas or brussels sprouts or asparagus, pastas, cheeses, and fruit.It is, by any standard, a great culinary gift from Italy. Admittedly, there are many others, but prosciutto is salty, silky, sweetly savory food for the gods!
