We’ve been singing that catchy song again lately (“Hey, mambo! Mambo Italiano!”), because we’ve updated AllSpice Mambo Italiano Gift Set with a few new additions. This set has all the classic elements you need to turn any “everyday” dish into a Mediterranean masterpiece:
Made with basil, fennel seed, garlic, onion, season salt and black pepper, Gusto Pizza Co. Pizza Seasoning Blend is a special seasoning blend which adds vibrant Italian flavor to sauces, sandwiches, spreads, and (of course) pizza.
Our Italian Seasoning Blend will put you in mind of your favorite little Italian place, the neighborhood joint that is the standard to which all other Italian restaurants must “measure up.” Use Italian Blend Seasoning to season fish, poultry, meat, or to make a salad dressing or olive oil for dipping bread — anywhere you want a taste of the Mediterranean.
Our Sicilian Bread Dipper celebrates the diverse cuisine of Sicily, combining elements of Arab and Greek spices with Spanish and French influences. Sicilian food is arguably some of the most delicious food in the world – and we think this garlicy, tomatoey blend, with hints of a smokey, slightly sweet flavor perfectly encapsulates the flavors of the region. Combine with olive oil for an easy bread dipper. Toss in a little vinegar and you’ve got a simple but tasty vinaigrette!
The essence of Tuscan cuisine is simplicity: legumes, bread, cheese, vegetables, mushrooms and fresh fruit. And, of course, olive oil. Our Tuscan Herb Infused Olive Oil captures the flavor – and the philosophy – of Tuscan cooking.
And we couldn’t close up the boxes without including a bag of Rotini. After all, pasta and Italian are nearly synonymous.
The Mambo Italiano Gift Set is a great “starter set” for the young cook who wants to start making pasta sauces, salad dressings, and grill marinades at home. The set also is a fantastic “shortcut in a box,” easily dressing up sauce from a jar [gasp!] and adding flavor to store-bought lasagna. Never fear: your secret is safe with us.
Just open a bottle of Pinot [Noir or Grigio, whatever you like], put the Rosemary Clooney records on the hi-fi, and sing while you cook: “Hey mambo, don’t wanna tarantella Hey mambo, no more a mozzarella” e Buon Appetito!
