Grocery Globe March 2016

Atalanta Products Recognized by the Prestigious FABI Awards

For the third year in a row, the National Restaurant Association has recognized Atalanta Corporation for its new and innovative products. This year Del Destino South American Sauces and L’Estornell Smoked Oil took center stage for their global flavors and unique attributes. The 2016 FABI Awards will be presented at the National Restaurant Association Show (NRA), May 21-24 in Chicago.
Atalanta continues to search the globe for exciting flavors and trend-setting ideas. The new collection of Peruvian Sauces from Del Destino feature authentic ingredients such as the Amarillo chili pepper that is a staple in Peruvian cooking. Ranging from spicy and creamy to tangy and fresh, these versatile sauces will satisfy adventurous palates looking for diverse flavors. The line consists of seven sauces, three of which were awarded the 2016 prize: Aji Sauce, Mochero Pepper & Cilantro Sauce and Rocoto Sauce.
Discovered by De Medici, a division of Atalanta, VEÁ’s L’Estornell Smoked Oil perfectly combines fruity extra-virgin Arbequina olive oil with the aromatic smoke of pinecones from Catalonia’s Montseny area. By employing a cold smoking technique, the oil is infused with a balanced, subtle smokiness that enhances the flavor of the oil without overpowering it. A natural partner for grilled meat, fish, and vegetables, L’Estornell Smoked Oil also adds wood-fired flavor to dressings and sauces.


Smoke & Oil a Perfect Pairing

L’Estornell Smoked Oil 

Make this a “pantry essential” for the spring and summer. Perfect as a finish for grilled fish & meats, add it to tapenade or mayonnaise based dip. Use it in vinaigrette (it compliments citrus extremely well).  Whatever you add it to, this will be your must-have of the grilling season!
