  • Rosemary
  • Oil
  • Salt


We know that Italian cuisine is made with simplicity and only require a few ingredients to create the tastiest of dishes. Although it is simple preparing these delicious meat skewers, here are some tips on how to cook them best:

First, marinate. You can choose Mediterranean herbs but above all a full-bodied oil that can sustain the aromas of the sheep or lamb meat. Leave to marinate for an hour.

To savor the flavours at best, you must cook them on the grill, on low heat without flame and leave for one minute on each side, or at least until a delicious crust has formed. The interior must be soft. After cooking, to prevent the meat from becoming stringy, they must be wrapped in aluminum foil.

When was the last time you had dinner in an Italian restaurant in Canada and you thought you were dining in Italy? That’s exactly how “Ospitalità Italiana Certified”restaurants want you to feel when you visit their fine dining establishments.

Ospitalità Italiana is an official certification from Unioncamere, Italy’s federation of local Chambers of Commerce and Industry, that tells you that the food you are enjoying is unquestionably Italian: products are authentic, ingredients genuine and recipes true to the thousand year history of Italian cuisine.

Canada is home to some leading Italian Chefs. Passionate and innovative, many have refined their skills and advanced their knowledge directly in Italy. In addition, Montréal boasts a fabulous cooking school ITHQ where young aspiring chefs learn Italian technic and Italian traditional recipes from the masters.

So the next time you make reservations for an Italian dinner in a Montreal restaurant, ask if they’ve received the Ospitalità Italiana seal of approval. You will enjoy the true Italian taste.
