Just west of downtown, within walking distance of the Inner Harbor and the Washington Monument, is Trinacria Foods. A family-owned business since 1908, they make their own breads, dried pasta, sauces and frozen pasta dishes. Even their oddball flavors like pumpkin ravioli are insanely delicious. If you have to bring a house gift – but are tight on funds – they have bottles of Italian wine that start at $3.99! Frugal housekeepers: shake the sofa cushions for change. They have lots of things, including fun pasta shapes, for under a dollar! Gorgeous tins of Italian desserts make for wonderful holiday gifts. Cans of white peach Bellini soda will bring out your inner mixologist. Have to worry about a 3-1-1 bag for airline travel? Seasonings, house-made cookies, Italian candies will all past muster. How 'bout a little present for you? Their made-to-order muffaletta sandwiches rival those in the Big Easy.
