FEATURED PRODUCTS Fruit-Infused Mozzarella Appetaggios from Fiorucci Foods Fiorucci is the brand of specialty meats that delivers the true taste of Italy. For more than 170 years, the brand has used Old World recipes to produce a full line of authentic Italian charcuterie meats, cheeses and premium snacking products using only handtrimmed cuts of premium pork and the finest ingredients, then slowly aging them to perfection. Since 1850, the Fiorucci family has been creating authentic Italian meats, honoring the tradition of the Italian dinner table. Fiorucci has introduced the perfect balance of meat, cheese and fruit with all-natural Appetag-

gios. Each product consists of individual strips of peach or cranberry mozzarella that are hand wrapped with a slice of perfectly aged prosciutto or hard salami. The fruit flavors infuse sweetness into mild, milky mozzarella, and the smoky meat further complements this mouthwatering combination, creating an irresistible, one-of-a-kind snack. Appetaggios are available in 16/1.5ounce packages and are ready to eat, making them an excellent option for snacking and entertaining. Fiorucci Foods www.fioruccifoods.com

Le Gruyère AOP Reserve Matured for at least 10 months, Le Gruyère AOP Reserve has the same pedigree as real Swiss Gruyère produced in western Switzerland for more than 900 years. Rich in flavor and packed with nutrients from the milk of cows grazing in pristine pastures, Le Gruyère AOP Reserve has a more assertive and intensely aromatic character than its younger counterpart. It has a complex nutty, buttery taste with a firm, slightly crumbly texture. It’s perfect for everyday eating and at home in fondue or any recipe that calls for a great melting cheese. Today, anyone can label a

cheese “Gruyère,” but Le Gruyère AOP Reserve is the real deal, tightly upholding the tradition of the cheese-making process, the regions where it is produced, and the strict guidelines followed by the dairy farmers, cheese makers and affineurs. Pure, unpasteurized milk is gathered from 170 farms and brought to expert cheese makers to produce 80-pound wheels, which are then aged in local cellars. Only the wheels passing the highest standards are allowed to be sold as Le Gruyère AOP. Le Gruyère www.gruyere.com
