Gorji Gourmet Foods® Puttanesca Sauce makes seafood dishes come alive.

In creating Gorji Gourmet Foods®, I wanted to create a product line for home use that would be the base for gourmet meals without spending hours in preparation.

(PRWEB) June 19, 2012

As temperatures rise, dining thoughts turn to lighter, less heavy fare. No wonder that June is designated as “Seafood Month” and cooks around the country are looking for exciting new recipes to enhance their summertime dishes from the sea. Chef Gorji introduces seafood recipes using his Gorji Gourmet Foods® Puttanesca Sauce, Dipping Oil & Marinade Primer and Spicy Remoulade that are the same bold and flavorful products that he cooks with in his kitchen at Canary By Gorji, Mediterranean Steak & Seafood, an award-winning, intimate 10-table restaurant in Dallas (http://www.canarybygorji.com)

“In creating Gorji Gourmet Foods®, I wanted to create a product line for home use that would be the base for gourmet meals without spending hours in preparation,” he says.
