Sicilian Pistachio SpreadWe're thrilled to announce that Il Colle del Gusto's Sicilian Pistachio Spread with Extra Virgin Olive Oil was awarded a Gold sofi™ Award at last month's Fancy Food Show in New York. La Pistacchiosa Spread was the only Italian product at the show to receive such a prestigious award (akin to winning an Oscar in the food industry).

A big congratulations to Anna Maria Conti and Antonio della Corte, the geniuses behind Il Colle del Gusto! We first discovered the duo at a farmer's market in Rome and fell in love with their decadent hazelnut and pistachio spreads upon first taste. Anna Maria and Antonio's Sicilian Pistachio Spread has an intensely nutty flavor, a subtle sweetness, and a rich, velvety texture from the addition of Italian extra virgin olive oil. It's no surprise that the sofi™ Award voters went nutty for it too! But don't just take our word for it, open a jar, take a taste and discover how to win gold at home.
