With the holidays approaching, I wanted to create something a bit special to share with all of you.This is how the Laura’s Gourmet selection was born.
I picked some of the treats that are a tradition on our family table, but I tried to select the ones that also had somethingunexpected and special.Who says tradition can’t be a surprise?
First of all, I knew I needed to include aPanettone so I asked some advice toBorsari, our friends from Verona, to choose the best artisanal Panettone. The natural choice was their traditional recipe enriched with a superior lemon cream.
Next November 28th we will celebrate our sixthThanksgivingin the United States and I have been thinking about how this day means a lot to me and my family even if we only moved back here in the United States in2014.
As I told in the About Us section of this site, I was born here and I spent my first years in the Italian Delicatessen that my parents used to run in the Bronx.
When we first set up or shop we knew that we needed to find the perfectPanettone and Pandoroto bring with us to the USA. We tasted all kinds - It’s a hard job, we know! - but finally fell in love withBorsari’s!
Few recipes make me think of Sundays in Italy like Lasagna.
“Lasagna” is the name of a type of flat pasta, one of the most ancient kinds ever created. The name of the pasta is that of the finished dish too, which is created by stacking layers of pasta and alternating them with tomato sauce and other ingredients.
