I was thrilled to taste the delicious food in Cervasi’s product line.
All of us were seated at gorgeously decorated tables in front of a chef’s kitchen. Daniela, a culinary instructor, taught us a variety of Italian cooking methods and created the most amazing Italian dishes with the various Cervasi products for us to enjoy. We enjoyed everything from an appetizer to main dish to dessert.
Daniela gave us several fascination tips when cooking Italian such as extra virgin olive oil can be used for cooking everything except deep frying. It is especially good when creating your own sauces.
Use fresh any time you can such as herbs and tomatoes. You can use canned Dinapoli tomatoes which will be a second best next to fresh. Or, try using fresh roma tomatoes for your sauce, just boil for 2 minutes, remove the skin and blend the whole tomatoes.
Cervasi sent us home with a gift bag full of their products including artichokes and olive oil. I use so much olive oil in our home that I absolutely loved receiving it! I am a huge fan of artichokes as well! Their products are the perfect addition to my kitchen. Cervasi specialty foods include imported pasta, extra virgin olive oils, wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar of Modena, artichokes, cheeses, olives, bruschetta and more.
