Il Colle del Gusto's La Pistacchiosa (Sicilian Pistachio Spread with Extra Virgin Olive Oil) was awarded a Gold sofi Award at the NYC Fancy Food show last week, the only Italian product at the show to receive such a prestigous award.
Second, this accolade proves that the American buyers at the show CAN TASTE THE DIFFERENCE! Made with Anna Maria's extra virgin olive oil, the Sicilian pistachio flavor is vibrant, clean and smooth with a long lasting finish. Anna Maria and Antonio's creation has a classic "neither sweet-neither salty" Italian flavor that will leave your palate clean and full of nutty flavors. There is no better way to enjoy Pistacchiosa than by the spoonful.
Other ways to enjoy: Spread over gelato, pies, tarts or any grilled stone fruit. Adorn cup cakes and pies, or enjoy over a piece of toast topped with crispy pancetta.
We are eagerly awaiting the September harvest of the pistachio in Sicily this year. Did you know that pistachio trees in Sicily only produce nuts every other year? After winning the Gold, thank goodness this year is a harvest year!
