Recently on a day-long Italian Culinary Tour with
The Fork and the Road, one of the stops was DeLallo’s.
DeLallo’s Italian Foods is a multi-generation family run business with an impressive selection of...
well, just about everything...
including Italian Eggs
Mr. DeLallo, you’re pulling my Foghorn Leghorn leg right??
The Leghorn is a breed of chicken
with origins in Tuscan, Italy.
They were imported into America in 1853 and called Italians.
The chickens are from the western edge of Tuscany,
in English also known as Leghorn.
These chicks can lay some eggs too—around 280 per year!
Dear Mary of The Fork and the Road,
I hereby royally crown your Fork as a jewel of a culinary Tour!
Had any Italian eggs lately?
