Mimi’s Ravioli is WAY more than Ravioli!

Hello Foodie Friends,

I recently was invited to a media & food blogger event at Mimi’s Ravioli in Hollywood, FL. Although Mimi’s was new to me, this family owned and operated gourmet Italian Market and Catering company has been around for 38+ years serving the local community as well as providing many fine restaurants in the area with their wholesale products.

On this night, Mimi’s opened their doors to us after hours and presented us with an amazing menu of many of their delicious homemade dishes served with Mionetto Prosecco.

Mimi’s hand made fresh Mozzarella


Mimi’s fresh Mozzarella is made hourly, stretched and salted to perfection. Their Mozzarella is a quality cow’s milk based cheese. They served us their Mozzarella & Tomato Caprese (pictured above), as well as fresh Salted Mozzarella and their handcrafted smoked Mozzarella.
Mimi’s Artisan Breads, Facaccia’s, Pizzas and Rolls

All of Mimi’s bread, focaccia’s, pizzas and rolls are made daily. Their gluten rolls have been a favorite for over 30 years, while their Ciabatta breads have now become staples to their ever day success. On this evening, they featured a few different homemade ciabatta breads, their own semolina bread, gluten rolls, sea salt focaccia bread, pepper & onion focaccia and their artichoke focaccia (pictured above).
Mimi’s imported cheese’s oils & balsamics
While I don’t have a pic to share with you of the beautiful display of cheeses, suffice it to say that the 24 month aged Parmigiano Reggiano that they presented us was one of the freshest I have ever had. I was certainly in cheese heaven. Mimi’s imports their Parmigiano Reggiano, Grano Padano, Provolone, Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Balsamic’s. Complimenting the cheeses there was an assortment of soppressata and dry sausages.

BRIO Tuscan Grille South Florida Locations “Fire Up” The Art of Grilling

Hello Foodie Friends,

Summer’s here and we all know what that means…time to get the grill ignited! But maybe it’s just too darn hot to stand before the open flames or you just don’t feel like cooking. Not to worry BRIO Tuscan Grille has got your back. BRIO’s South Florida locations have launched a three-course “Art of Grilling” summer menu available from June 1st – June 30th, Sunday – Thursday at 4pm, for just $26.95, including a choice of salad, grilled entrée with Chef- inspired toppings and a Dolchino dessert.  In addition, BRIO is concurrently running Facebook & Instagram contests (now through June 30th).

“The Thrill Of The Grille” contest on Facebook: BRIO fans who post their favorite grilling recipe or dish will be entered in a chance to win a chef-inspired “Gather & Grille Dinner Party for 8” at their favorite BRIO location.  To enter, guests must visit the official BRIO Facebook page:

In addition, BRIO will is hosting an INSTA-GRILLE GIVEAWAY contest on Instagram.  To enter, guests will share their favorite photo of a dish they have prepared and grilled:  The winner will receive a box of premium cut filets and strip steaks along with a new grill.

So I was very excited to receive an invite to check out the three-course “Art of Grilling” menu at the Boca BRIO so that I could share this wonderful deal with you all. Shortly after being shown to our table, the GM Sheri Williams came by to say hello. Sheri was fairly new to this location but not to BRIO and she certainly had a warmth and demeanor about her that made you feel like you were talking with an old friend. She was excited to share with us this wine that […]
