I've always had a special craving for the flavors of Italian food. My whole life people have asked me if I was Italian, I presume because of my maiden name, Larrinaga, and dark features. We made many Italian dinners and served antipasto as an appetizer when guests would come over for dinner in our home all growing up.
This love for Italian flavors only increased after I spent a summer in Italy. This dish focuses on simple yet flavorful ingredients - tomatoes, Promised Land milk for a touch of creaminess, garlic and basil. All these flavors remind me of my childhood and this sweet time spent in a beautiful country with a love of simple food.
Italian flood is all about the flavor, and when it comes to milk, extraordinary flavor comes from extraordinary cows.
Our family has been drinking Promised Land milk for years. It's one of the only brands of cow's milk at the grocery store I trust. When we buy milk from our dairy, it's from Jersey cows because it's the creamiest and sweetest out there. Of course it isn't super convenient to drive all the way to a dairy, and most people don't have access to this, so Promised Land is literally the next best thing.
The black and white spotted Holstein cow produces 90% of the milk we drink in the US, and the Jersey cows (from the British Isle of Jersey, not New Jersey) are much more unique and rare, making up less than 10% of the milk we drink. Because of this, their quality is tremendous. It's creamier and naturally higher in protein and calcium than other milk found at the store. Promised Land Diary doesn’t add hormones and is tested for antibiotics. We find ours at Target!
