Bertolli Taste of Italy Giveaway

Giveaway is closed – Congrats to Andrea!

I’ve got a fun new giveaway for you today from Bertolli. This set has all the things to make a antipasto di formaggio platter. There is also a tasting certificate so you can try one of the Bertolli frozen meals when you don’t want to make dinner one night. The beautiful cheese book included in the set by Janet Fletcher is a guide to pairing and enjoying cheese and wine. It’s beautifully illustrated with remarkable photos of some of the finest cheeses available.

The antipasto di formaggio platter is perfect for enjoying a variety of fine Italian artisan cheeses before you prepare your favorite Bertolli Frozen Meal. From pungent asiago to buttery fontina, Italian cheeses provide an abundance of culinary possibilities and are just as delectable on their own, or simply paired with a lovely glass of wine. Bertolli frozen meals are also made with many delicious Italian cheeses, such as fresh Parmesan and versatile ricotta, bringing you true authentic Italian flavor. This set includes all of the tools to prepare a delicious antipasto di formaggio platter, including:

· Slate Cheese Board and Chalk Set

· Set of 3 Cheese Tools

· “Cheese & Wine” Pairing Book

· Set of 3 Pronutto Wine Jellies to complement your cheeses

  11. 11
    Andrea — June 13, 2011 @ 9:23 am

    Ooh, I think eating brie straight with a spoon. Horseradish cheddar is a favorite on burgers.

  12. 12
    Barb — June 13, 2011 @ 12:25 pm

    So many delicious cheeses – how to choose? It’s hard to beat a good blue with cab sauv – or a creamy brie. Yum!

    Ms Brown Bird — June 13, 2011 @ 12:27 pm

    My favorite cheese to est with things may be pepperjack, but lately feta and goat cheese have been winning out…

  14. 14
    Megan S — June 13, 2011 @ 1:26 pm

    Mmmm…Gouda is Goooooooood-ah! A local winery sells a favorite wine, called Sweet Aubergine, by Chateau Thomas.

  15. 15
    Maggie Drake — June 13, 2011 @ 1:46 pm

    A ripe Cambazola or Italian Gorgonzola with a Phillips Hill Pinot would be a dream. I haven’t met a cheese I didn’t like, though.

  16. 16
    Cellabella — June 13, 2011 @ 1:47 pm

    My favorite cheeses are a tie between Havarti and Guyere, although a fresh piece of Bufalo Mozzarella drizzled with olive oil, balsamic, and sprinkled with salt and pepper comes in for a close third 🙂

  17. 17
    Gina T — June 13, 2011 @ 1:50 pm

    Butterkäse and grapes!

  18. 18
    christine — June 13, 2011 @ 4:02 pm

    A nice slice of Parm. YUM! I went to the Whole Foods cracking event and got a slice off a freshly cracked wheel of parm. WOW!

  19. 19
    Aroha Bahuguna — June 13, 2011 @ 4:27 pm

    Scarmoza! It’s similar in texture to mozzarella but tastes infinitely better. Grilled scarmoza with frites on the side is the most sinfully delicious lunch I’ve had.

  20. 20
    Kathi Foust — June 13, 2011 @ 6:34 pm

    Baked Brie and a glass of merlot or sharp white cheddar with a glass of cab. I pretty much love any cheese! Cheese makes everything better!!

    Rebecca — June 14, 2011 @ 11:06 pm

    Havarti with Dill, Gouda straight from the Netherlands, but my favorite is just a plain old slice of cheddar. It’s my dogs favorite too. 🙂

  25. 25
    Alyssa — June 20, 2011 @ 8:56 pm

    Well as I am a poor college student I have no money to buy cheese so I would have to say Velveeta! (Can we at least pretend its a cheese :)!)

  26. 26
    Holly C — June 24, 2011 @ 11:22 am

    This is a hard one, Brie, Cheddar or Parmesan…or a big wheel of Swiss… Ok Cheddar it is but no wine thank you!

    We just went on this wine tour a couple of weeks and they had the best cheese I have ever had and have been looking at every story to find it. Its called Vanilla Blueberry Goat Cheese went really well with the Chardonnay that we had at Spicewood Vineyards in Spicewood, Texas…

    Robin — June 24, 2011 @ 11:50 am

    My favorite cheese is the ole’ Italian favorite mozzarella. This versital soft cheese can be used for so much more than pasta and pizza’s. We use it for sandwiches, soups and a little more cheese on our favorite Bertolli Meals.

    Lana — June 24, 2011 @ 12:17 pm

    Laurie R. — June 24, 2011 @ 12:48 pm

    I am Italian so I’ve never met a cheese that I didn’t like! haha But 2 of my favorites are Gruyere and Havarti. Pair them with a nice crisp Pinot Grigio and I’m in Heaven!

  42. 42
    LOUISA BATISTE — June 24, 2011 @ 12:49 pm

    My favorite cheese is Gruyère cheese.

    My favorite cheese and wine pairing is Gruyère cheese and Sauvignon Blanc because this wine has pronounced flavors of a herbal variety, with grassy and apple flavors, plus olive and a soft, smoky flavor, and is great in cutting through heavy food flavors such as the sharpness of Gruyère cheese. My husband and I learned of this pairing at a wine tasting event and it has been my fav ever since.

    jaime — June 24, 2011 @ 12:57 pm

    Has to be a creamy brie with a spoon and putting on apple slices. My favorite TV snack, and now I have my boyfriend started with the snacking on them. Wine is good on those special nights (if you know what I mean).

  49. 49
    Susanatthebeach — June 25, 2011 @ 12:35 pm

    My favorites are Havarti with caraway and prosecco, and a smokey gouda with a peppery-red zinfandel
