I love the variety of Gigi Importing products! As a recipe developer and cooking instructor, it makes my job easier when I’m using delicious, wholesome foods to motivate people to get in their kitchens and prepare meals for their families. It’s also important I have access to good-quality traditional Italian foods when cooking meals that celebrate my heritage!” ~ Fina Scroppo, author of The Healthy Italian
