Omne Trium Perfectum
You don’t need to be a turophile to appreciate the power of cheese to electrify taste and texture. We believe it’s exponential; so, if you triple the cheese, you really amp up the dynamism. It’s a theory...
Every theory should be taste tested, and we propose Trader Giotto’s Three Cheese Pomodoro Pasta Sauce proves our supposition. Explosive and indulgent, this sauce starts with Pomodori San Marzano, Italian plum tomatoes that are grown in the mineral-rich, volcanic soils that surround Mt. Vesuvius in Naples. Ripened by the sun, these tomatoes boast singular sweetness and acidity that make them ideal for saucing. We simmer them with extra virgin olive oil, freshly chopped onions, crushed garlic, basil and oregano to create an inviting base. Then we add a trio of timeless grating cheeses: Parmesan for its pungent saltiness; Romano for its nutty sharpness; and Asiago for a touch of savory-sweetness. The energy of the sauce resonates from the tip of your tongue to the bottom of your tummy. It’s great on pasta, pizza, chicken, or if you dare to amp it up even more, use it as a dip for our Mac n’ Cheese Bites (yum). There is one thing, however, we don’t believe should ever be exponentially increased by, well, anything – price. That’s why each 25 ounce jar of our Three Cheese Pomodoro
Pasta Sauce is only $2.99.
Culinary Curiosity: The origin of the term “turophile,” used to describe a connoisseur/lover of cheese is unknown, but it was popularized by American radio host Clifton Fadiman, the same personality that described cheese as “milk’s leap toward immortality.”
