Last week, we were invited to the app launch event for Pomi, an Italian tomato company, known for its delicious sauces. So I bundled up and traveled down the cold winds of the concrete jungle into the warm quarters of Bloomingdales. After getting lost and searching many floors of the store, the simmering smell of tomatoes led the way.
I spoke with a few people and learned that after being in the industry for 30 years, Pomi also known as the “tomato revolution from Italy” decided to put a little modern day spin to their brand with the launch of their new app, “iPomi”.
A few conversations later, my nose led me to the simmering scent, where I found star chef Ivana Giuntoli preparing Polpette do Vitello (veal meatballs) for the guests. The dish included tomato sauce from the Pomi brand and noodles from Delverde Pasta USA.
Unfortunately, I was unable to try the dish since it wasn’t gluten-free, but it simply smelled delicious and the other guests seemed to be enjoying it. I was however able to sip on Smeraldina Italian Artisan Sparkling Water, which I have to admit was a lot better than any other brands that I’ve tried.
To keep my taste buds focused, I sought out the task at hand, learning about the “iPomi” app. In no time app was download and I know held a piece of italy in my hands. Free on iTunes, the app includes a variety delicious recipes both hot and cold dishes.
Their new app was very interesting, as it provided a synopsis of the brand, great navigation, lots of delicious recipes and you can even share the recipes with friends or your spouse when trying to make the dinner menu.
I must say the “iPomi” app is something that I will definitely putting to use, being the products are made of natural ingredients, I won’t have any problems putting a “gluten-free” spin to it!
