Puttanesca Joins The Golden Chile Club
Puttanesca won two golds, each at different events. It is Gorji Gourmet's fourth Golden Chile Award: the first for Puttanesca and three for Arrabiata Diavolo.
"Taste, texture and flavor are my focal point. It is gratifying to be granted rewards of this magnitude, especially when it is blind-judging," says Gorji.
Chef Gorji developed the Gorji Gourmet Foods line from recipes he created and regularly cooks with in his kitchen at Canary By Gorji. Gorji Gourmet Foods help home cooks easily make gourmet tasting dishes without hours of preparation.
- Pomodoro: clean tasting and vibrant, but not hot. It is a flavorful base on pizzas, pastas and any recipe using tomato sauce.
- Puttanesca: perfect on any tomato sauce recipe calling for extra "zing."
- Arrabiata Diavolo: the spiciest. It adds zesty heat to pasta, pizza, seafood, burgers, bloody marys and wherever the devil makes you do it!
- Dipping Oil & Marinade: olive oil that is perfect as a dipping oil or as a marinade for all kinds of meats, fish, poultry and vegetables. Chef Gorji uses this exclusively in his kitchen at Canary By Gorji.
- Pomegranate Vinaigrette: a lively salad dressing made with olive oil. Ideal for salads, as a light sauce for meats of all kinds, or as a marinade.
All Gorji Gourmet Foods have no added sugar or preservatives.
