NEW YORK, July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Amaro Montenegro was once again honored with a Gold medal in the Bitters category at the 2018 International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC), which sets worldwide benchmarks for quality and excellence in wines, spirits and liqueurs.  The award marks the second year in a row that Amaro Montenegro has secured this prestigious distinction, further cementing its standing as the world's best liqueur.

The IWSC Gold medal follows Amaro Montenegro's recent awards at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, where the brand received top accolades in the form of Best in Show Liqueur, Best Herbal and Botanical Liqueur, and a rare Double Gold medal.

"Amaro Montenegro's signature bitter-sweet taste and unique production process has set us apart from our competitors for more than 130 years," said Francesco Scaglione, International Commercial Director for Gruppo Montenegro. "We're honored to be recognized not just once – but twice – for our superior quality by one of the world's most prestigious spirits competitions.  As excitement for the amaro category continues to grow, we look forward to introducing Amaro Montenegro to new consumers around the globe."

The IWSC is one of the most coveted awards in the spirits industry, annually receiving entries from more than 90 countries. Submissions undergo a rigorous two-stage judging process, including a double blind taste test and a detailed chemical analysis to ensure integrity and consistency.

Amaro Montenegro is a 133-year-old amaro that is born of extraordinary experiences and baptized by irreverence. The award-winning bitter-sweet flavor of Amaro Montenegro begins with the cultivation and extraction of 40 botanicals collected from around the globe, preserved at a controlled temperature and humidity and crushed only moments before they enter the extraction phase. Three different methods are used to extract the essence of each botanical: boiling, maceration, and distillation to create Amaro Montenegro's signature blend. This process is overseen by Master Herbalist, Dr. Matteo Bonoli, who ensures every batch just as the brand's founder, Stanislao Cobianchi, did back in 1885.

TORONTOJuly 25, 2018 /CNW/ - Canadians are going to be able to "Cauli" Pizza Pizza for a new, delicious crust alternative. As of July 16, Pizza Pizza's latest innovation - Cauliflower Crust Pizza - is available at restaurants across the country.

"Pizza Pizza has always been a consistent innovator and we know consumers are on the hunt for trend-worthy meals that help them incorporate more vegetables into their diet. Our new Cauliflower Crust Pizza is our way of filling the void in the market," said Paul Goddard, CEO, Pizza Pizza. "It will offer consumers the perfect healthier alternative they've been looking for in a pizza, without compromising on taste."

The new crust has a similar texture to regular Pizza Pizza pizza crust and contains two servings of vegetables in every 12" pizza, with real cauliflower as the main ingredient. Pizza Pizza's Cauliflower Crust is available in medium size and can either be ordered custom or in one of the two new, specially crafted recipes, including: 

  • Cauli Pesto: Pesto sauce base, mozzarella cheese, grilled chicken, roasted red peppers, spinach and italiano blend seasoning.

  • Cauli Blanca: Olive oil base, mozzarella cheese, artichokes, grilled zucchini, roasted garlic, parmesan cheese and italiano blend seasoning.

"We know there's been an appetite to use cauliflower as a base for many dishes but it can be time-consuming and messy to make from scratch, with expectations rarely meeting the realities," said Alyssa Huggins, VP Marketing, Pizza Pizza. "We're excited to bring a healthy option that is able to marry taste and convenience."

The crust is a source of fibre and iron, and is gluten-free and vegan.

Since 1967, Pizza Pizza has been a leader in Canada's quick-service restaurant industry with notable firsts and innovations. The company was among the first in its pizza class to do such things as eliminate non-natural trans-fats and artificial colours and flavours from its menu. It is also known for the introduction of a time guarantee on delivery, invention of the insulated pizza delivery bag, as well as the implementation of a centralized call centre and phone number. The company is also associated with its iconic jingle, 967-11-11 which debuted in 1976 and was even rumoured to be an occasional Canadian passport interview question.

Come try the trendiest pizza in town and be part of the conversation on social media with #CauliPizzaPizza and tag @PizzaPizzaLtd on Twitter and Instagram and @PizzaPizzaCanada on Facebook. You can call or order online

July 24, Elora, ON, “Nothing is more patriotic — or more environrt and Congratulations -- Links to Photos & Recipes - mentally responsible — than feasting on our local northern bounty.  It’s all about culinary sovereignty!” says Anita Stewart, Founder of Food Day Canada, Food Laureate of the University of Guelph and Member of the Order of Canada for her contribution and dedication to Canada’s food.

Food Day Canada / Journée des terroirs is always on Saturday of the August long weekend for one simple reason: The harvest is in absolutely everywhere.  Local food abounds, summer is at its often-steamy height and Canadians are ready… to… party. This year, Food Day Canada will be celebrated on Saturday August 4.

It was 15 years ago when Food Day Canada catapulted into the national consciousness as the World’s Longest Barbeque, a grassroots response to beef trade issues at that time.

On August 4, locally-focused chefs and Canada’s food community are coming together to declare that after 15 years, it’s time to officially declare Food Day Canada® / Journée des terroirs as Canada’s local food day.  

As was the case 15 years ago, in 2018 Canadians are changing their buying habits in response to tariffs and global trade issues…they are actively engaging, reading labels and making a real effort to cook Canadian.  "Even though, for years eating locally has been a movement and a way of life for many Canadians from every corner of the nation, this year is a watershed moment,” says Stewart.  “If there ever was a time to eat like a Canadian, cook like a Canadian and shop like a Canadian, it’s now.  Let’s make Food Day Canada an official day recognized at home and abroad!”

For a decade and a half, from coast to coast to coast, Food Day Canada has engaged chefs and home cooks, farmers and processors, fishers, ranchers and researchers to celebrate our homegrown harvest. They are the innovators, the educators, the communicators and the trend-setters.  THEY ARE CANADA!  And THEY CARE!  How much?  This year, even the CN Tower will be lit in our signature red and white on August 4th while a team of Ontario chefs serve forth delicious Canadian foods on the Observation Deck.  

Over the years we’ve shopped from our own land and held hundreds of no-holds-barred celebrations that have swept across every region in Canada as each Food Day unfolds. The menus that have been served forth over the years are a reflection of Canada as a culinary nation from on board the epic Canada C3 journey where Calgary’s Chef Paul Rogalski cooked a Food Day Canada feast in Pangnirtung Fiord https://fooddaycanada.ca/featured-article/the-epic-c3-journey/  to a myriad of private and chef-driven events in backyards, campsites and Prairie fields, Food Day Canada has been flying high ever since those early days.  

Whether it's a magical dinner overlooking Lake Okanagan at Mission Hill Family Estates, or at Fireworks where Chef Michael Smith vows to use every ingredient grown on Prince Edward Island for this year’s feast, or a collaborative menu from Quebec to B.C. under the Relais et Chateaux banner, we are using our homegrown ingredients to honour each other and those who feed us so very well. .

The menus are arriving, too! Check out the birch syrup glazed smoked Gindara sablefish at Chateau Whistler or Chef Nancy Hinton’s marine green salad (sea spinach, sea asparagus, Canadian sandspurry and sea rocket), smoked eel and arctic char.  You may want to try on some Bauer Kitchen sticky maple & rye barbecue beef ribs or Miijidaa’s multi course menu that casts a spotlight on Canada’s many ecosystems from the forest and wetlands to the tundra and Prairie Grasslands.
