DCI Shows Shoppers How to Cook With il Giardino Cheese
DCI Cheese Co. (DCI) is rolling out a campaign to encourage consumers to use more of the supplier’s il Giardino line of Italian imported and Italian-style domestic specialty cheeses: “Easy Italian Cooking at Home” will offer promotional displays and take-one machines with free il Giardino recipe brochures at participating retailers. Additionally, from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30, the brochure’s smart phone tag will enable consumers with the devices to log on directly to www.dcicheeseco.com/ilgiardino for even more recipes, along with coupons and beverage pairing advice.
