Whilst visiting the Windy City, Chicago Gita was first introduced to Giardiniera, known as Chicago’s best-kept secret. It is the classic topping for the Chicago Chicken Deli, Italian Sausage Sandwiches, Bratwursts, Hot Dogs, Burgers and even Pizza! Gita had never tasted anything like it. Tangy, crisp and sharp yet fresh.
Gita was hooked. Back to England she found a few on-line suppliers who sold it, however it tasted nothing like the heaven on a plate she had tasted in Chicago. The texture of the vegetables wasn’t crunchy, tangy and fresh, it just tasted mushy and stale.
So Gita got to work, four months and multiple attempts later, she had the perfect Giardiniera with her own twist.
We love to throwing it on top of salads to add a fun boost of flavour. It is an ideal accompaniment to steak, chicken or fish as well as being great for vegan meals and an exciting addition to any cheese board.
