From a customer who misses the Chicago-style giardiniera until he found us online:
"I received this order and need to give some feedback. Now that I have my Giardiniera I'm no longer suffering from the withdrawal symptoms that I have been experiencing for many years. I can now focus on my daily activity without wondering where I can get that next taste of Giardiniera. Life is again complete.   I'm already anticipating the next replenishment. Thank you so much," 
Jim P. in NM

About our Formato Brothers Eggplant Salad:  "I want to take this opportunity to say that your product is the best of its kind since my aunt who used to make it homemade passed away many years ago.  I hope you will be making it for years to come!

"My order arrived, and I have just now had a chance to unpack it.  Yum!  I am so pleased to have another supply of those wonderful Lemon Stick Wafers as well as that delicious-looking jar (large!) of Sour Cherry.  Thank you so much for that extra treat and also for your very helpful and speedy handling of my challenged order.  I do appreciate it and will be back...and for sure, will recommend Formato Brothers to my friends."
Barbie M, Greenwich, CT
 


"The package from Formato Brothers has arrived and I am delighted.  Everything was wrapped very carefully and securely.  I am looking forward to preparing some special meals with them.    I am so happy I found you on the Internet.  Here in Georgia authentic Italian food is hard to find, when you have special sales from time to time, I plan on enjoying other things like Cappola. 

BTW I clicked on "like" for you on Facebook, 'cause I sure do like your products.  Thanks again."
Nancy (missing Chicago)

"Thank you so much for the wonderful service you have provided in the past.  I trust and hope others appreciate your good quality and service."
Dawn from Grand Rapids


"I just want to thank you for your prompt shipping of my order!  We had the fig preserves last night with a robust Pecorino Romano, and, YUM!  It was such a wonderful combination and all of our guests raved about it!  We still haven't tried the pear preserves, but I'm sure they will be as delicious as the others in our order.  We'll definitely be ordering from your in the future!  Thank you again..."  
Cindy from East Setauket, NY

"A little bit of Heaven on Earth"  
Formato Brothers Hot Giardiniera liberally spread over a simple lasagna. It doesn't get much better than this. 
California Customer

"I've been enjoying Formato Brothers Products for over 15 years! I love the Hot Giardiniera and Pepper Spreads with any Italian dish...pasta, lasagna and even meatloaf. They spice things up and turn an ordinary meal into a treat for my taste buds. The Eggplant Salad is also great with most any dish or served straight from the jar as an appetizer. Mangia!

I’ve been adding Formato Brothers products to my food for over 14 years and they are terrific.  My dad was a chef and taught me how to cook before I could ride a bike and I’ve been preparing all sorts of gourmet delicacies since then.  I love the variety of Giardinieras, Eggplant Salad, Hot Pepper Spread.  They make it so easy to create unique and delectable appetizers, salads, side dishes and main entrees.

 



Formato Brothers products add spice, flavor and fun to every dish I design. Who can’t help but love them when people say, “Wow, what’s in this dish?  It’s delicious.”  I simply reply, “It’s Formato Brothers.”

You will not be disappointed. Here you will find something for everyone. I especially like the giardiniera and the pepper spreads. The eggplant salad and the muffuletta salad are exceptional.  If you enjoy cooking with olive oil as Diana and I do then you will find the EVOO and infused oils delicious.  The balsamic vinegars and glazes add a whole new dimension to any of your favorite dishes.  I even found some of Hawaii's finest BBQ sauces from Kona under the category of "other."  I swear I had nothing to do with that.  Those Italians know a good thing when they taste it!  Try a little taste of Italy.  You won't be disappointed.  You will find the  prices very competitive.  I start each morning with a bit of Casa Giulia jam & toast.  The variety & flavors are excellent.

If you view the following picture, you will see that I am stocked up and ready for Armageddon (or whatever comes my way). That’s because I just received my latest shipment of Formato Brothers foods. I’ve got to tell you that my salivary glands were working overtime as I unwrapped each bottle of these tasty treats. I could hardly contain myself and finally tore the lid off of a jar of Hot Giardinera and took a spoon full just to get a “fix”. If you haven’t tried Formato Brothers foods, you are missing the greatest taste sensation available in these modern times.  Go towww.formatobrothers.com today and take a look at all of their great Italian foods. Your taste buds will thank you for doing so.
