So, as you know by now, the store is named after Deidra’s Grandpa Gus. Italian Cowboy embodies our love of all things Italian, of the simplicity of cooking perfect ingredients, and of a “value is quality, not quantity” approach to life. But even though a really important part, Gus and the Ciriellos are only part of the equation. And when it comes to food, that other side has a lot to say, and to love.
That side – the Rothschild side – is as serious about its eats and drinks as are the Ciriellos. Read More

Our simple, two-ingredient balsamic and strawberries dessert is a sophisticated, easy healthy dessert that you can assemble in under 5 minutes. All you need are fresh strawberries and a good quality balsamic vinegar. Unlike supermarket versions, which are great for salad dressing, high quality balsamic is syrupy and sweet with a light acidity and tons of depth of flavor. It’s perfect drizzled on berries (and grilled vegetables and meats). Here we’ve pictured our Malphigi Balsamic, made only from grape must and aged for 8 years.
The “recipe” is super simple – cut your strawberries into bite-sized pieces, drizzle with the balsamic and Read More
