ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??

In honor of the teams hitting the field this weekend, we've developed a party sandwich that represents the best of Pittsburgh paired with the best of Green Bay: A&V's Battle of the Gridiron Heroes Hero! This deluxe party hero is 1/2 Pittsburgh (Primanti Bros.-style with Genoa salami, ham, sopressata, provolone, cole slaw, tomatoes, and potato chips) and 1/2 Green Bay (Bratwurst, sauerkraut, and chopped onion). No matter which team you support, we've got you covered!

Don't Miss It: Sicilian Monti Iblei DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil

January 18 2011

Once you try our A&V Sicilian Monti Iblei DOP extra virgin olive oil you’ll have a hard time going back to the regular stuff. This olive oil is, without exaggeration, one of the best on the planet. It is known for its fresh, herbaceous aroma, and for a flavor reminiscent of green Sicilian tomatoes and freshly cut grass with a peppery finish. The delicate complexity of the flavors and the seductive nose of this oil are truly unique, and we couldn’t be happier to be able to offer it to our customers.

Our Monti Iblei is harvested, pressed, and bottled for us at a family-owned farm and mill in the Chiaramonte Gulfi region, located in the heart of the volcanic Iblei Mountains in southern Sicily (the DOP designation means that oils labeled as ‘Monti Iblei’ must come from this very specific region). The olives here, primarily of the Tonda Iblea variety, come from century-old trees grown in rich volcanic soil. The age of the trees correlates with low productivity, which makes the supply of Monti Iblei oil scarce in comparison with the feverish demand for such a high-quality oil.

Our recommendation: Seize the day and enjoy the Monti Iblei while it’s here!
