Easy Hostess Gifts

Everybody brings a bottle of wine as a hostess gift. Be unique! I assure you I have never had a disappointed look when I arrive with a Viva Gourmet treat!

A package of imported pasta and a jar of Red Pesto with Truffle is a real favorite. It makes the perfect emergency supper in about five minutes! Perfect for a late night at the office or unexpected company. You can add in meat, chicken or seafood . . . artichoke hearts or . . . nothing!

Really like your hostess? Add both Pesto with Truffles–they are great to have on hand. The Genovese pesto with truffle is terrific mixed with cream cheese for a quick hors-d’oeuvre.

Another terrific combination is Squid Ink Pasta with Yellow Datterino Tomatoes. Again you can add to . . . but it is a great combination all on it’s own!

Porcini mushroom pasta with truffle sauce. Another winning combo.

Choose your favorite from below. You’ll be out the door in seconds, around $15 and well received!

Reduced Shipping Costs

Many of our ingredients are perishable and therefore by necessity, require FEDEX Standard Overnight shipping. There is no way around it - it's costly, and understanding shipping calculations practically requires a degree in actuary science!

In order to help defray your cost of shipping, we have incorporated shipping discounts for many of our finer ingredients. These ingredients are noted on the web site and the discounts will be automatically calculated when the ingredient is added to your cart. These discounts are cumalitive, so you could end up with very low or no shipping charges. (dependant on your location)

The best part is that you might as well add that extra pound of mushrooms, a bottle of truffle oil, some pasta or your favorite "pantry staples" because the shipping costs may not even change!
