Lapiana Grilled Sundried Tomatoes are made in La Spezia, in the Liguria region of Italy, using carefully selected tomatoes that are grilled and packed in olive oil, herbs and spices according to traditional Italian recipe. When the tomatoes are gone, use the oil for an authentic infused flavor, perfect for sauteing or marinades. All Natural, no preservatives.
The Lapiana family has scoured the Italian countryside for the best regional family delicacies since 1974 and has made them available to American home cooks for 10 years.
Growing up in Trento, Italy, Elena Lapiana, Francesca Lapiana-Krause and their brother, Emanuele, share memories of sitting at the family table and enjoying meals with traditional foods from their Trentino-Alto Adige region. They also enjoyed foods from other regions discovered by their father, Giancarlo, as he traveled Italy for his food distribution business.
Today, all three children are in the family business. Elena, Italian Foods’ general manager, is in Italy discovering new and exciting gourmet pleasures to share with customers, and Francesca, working from Italian Foods’ American headquarters in Raleigh, N.C., is sales director. Kirk Newcross is Italian Foods’ operations manager and handles customer service.
Wherever you find Italian Foods’ products, you can be sure they will bring a taste of authentic Italian flavor to your American table.
