Taste of Italy at King Soopers

The Taste of Italy event is going on now though September 27th at King Soopers stores across Colorado.  This is an Italian culinary celebration where you can explore new specialty Italian foods for a limited time.  If you are a foodie, or love Italian cuisine, this is THE event for you!  No need to fly to Italy to partake, simply let the Taste of Italy event be your guide.  Imagine a white truffle oil garlic bread, or an antipasti platter with 3 flavors of salami, prosciutto, roasted red peppers, crostini and fresh Burrata cheese.  Are you hungry yet?

King Soopers has  launched a new site, ItalianWorldFlavor.com to promote the event, complete with authentic Italian recipes broken down by Aperitivo, Antipasto, Primo, Secondo and Contorno dishes, coupons on select products, and a sweepstakes where you can enter to win $25 King Soopers Gift Card when you vote for your favorite Italian recipe.

King Soopers is even giving away free food (with purchase) to promote this event and encourage you to try the amazing recipes they posted on their website.  See all the free food options here!  I took advantage of the free balsamic vinegar, free lady fingers, and free crostini crackers when I was there.  I can’t wait to put together my Italian meal this weekend, using the recipes on the ItalianWorldFlavor site.    I’ll be sure to share my complete Italian meal on Friday!

Each area of the store has it’s own Taste of Italy display featuring Italian foods from various parts of Italy.  They also have little brochures at each station featuring the specialty products that you will discover in that station.

In the deli, you’ll find specialty cheeses, olives, tapenades, mascarpone cheese, fruit spreads and more!
