This thick, fragrant sauce from Menu contains morsels of strawberries, enhanced by the sweet-and-sour taste of balsamic vinegar. Ideal as an accompaniment for both matured (Grana Padano, Parmigiano Reggiano, Asiago, Pecorino Romano) and fresh (Ricotta, Mascarpone) cheeses, it is also wonderful over pastries and ice cream. Use it as a cooking sauce over roasts, tenderloins and poultry, too.
Menu is a specialty food products company that began life as a salami factory run by Romolo Barbieri in Cavezzo (province of Modena), Italy in the 1930's. Over the years, the company, now run by Romolo's son, Rodolfo, has expanded to create quality Italian food products for fine restaurants around the world.
