American Pistachios: Uniquely Beautiful

They’ve been described by chefs as the ethereal nut, the skinny nut, the green nut. Pistachios add color, texture, flavor and nutrition like no other ingredient. Consumers love them with wine, a beer, or in a major supporting role in any course. Rustic, refined, or scarcely designed, American pistachios are undeniably naturally beautiful.


Identità Golose

March 6-8, 2016, Milan, Italy

An international congress dedicated to international signature cuisine in Milan, Italy, Identitá Golose, draws the greatest chefs from Italy and around the world. From March 6-8, over 17, 000 consumers, chefs, restaurateurs, pastry chefs, bloggers, journalists and opinion leaders gathered at this prestigious event. APG was there with Italian ambassador Chef Stefania Corrado showcasing unique dishes created with American pistachios.

Visitors to the APG booth were treated to a special Chef Corrado’s American Rock’N Roll menu where every recipe was inspired from a rock song. Riccardo Zanni, a famous executive chef at the luxury Grand Hotel Palace in Rome, made a special appearance in the booth and served his American pistachios and pork sandwich along with a delicious white chocolate pistachio mousse. APG also held an exclusive tasting session with Chef Corrado and influential journalists and bloggers.
