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!!

    My favorite Italian cook…would have to be Armandino Batali. I don’t know if you could call him a COOK, but he does things with a pig that are still illegal in 6 states! Man, what I wouldn’t give for a little salumi now!

    Wow! That is an amazing gift! I am an Italian girl at my very core, I grew up eating pretty much everything Italian with my grandfather’s family coming straight off a boat! :)

    My favorite Italian food is good ole pasta sauce. You can make anything with a good pasta sauce. There are few out there that have great Italian flavor.

    Thanks for offering such a wonderful giveaway!

  48. Amy L on December 13, 2010 at 7:29 am

    It’s hard to choose one favorite, especially since my father was Italian, so there are many family recipes that I love. We make something called Popat, which is a fried patty made from bread crumbs, eggs, and parmesan cheese that is a big favorite.

    My parents’ red “gravy”. I guess it’s as much a memory as the taste…..waking
    up on Sunday morning to the smell of garlic sauteing in olive oil…..couldn’t wait
    to dip some bread……..and my father’s chicken cacciatore (white).

    Gosh…to pick just one favorite italian dish!? eeeeek…. I would say my current favorite is chicken parm with a little fettuchini and alfredo sauce on the side! I try not to eat this too often for obvious reasons…it is not very waist friendly!!!

  57. Eileen on December 13, 2010 at 8:38 am

    My FAVORITE italian food is an italian hoagie with sharp provolone cheese, 2nd runner up is homemade ravioli in my mothers gravy, YUM! A chocolate chip canoli for dessert would be prefection :)

  58. Jillian on December 13, 2010 at 8:38 am

    Ohhh… that’s such a hard choice. I’d have to say that freshly made with all the right ingredients chicken parmesan with angel hair in a rich marinara is just about the most delicious thing ever.
