The Garpepano® Story

Lou Cerrato creator of Garpepano.Growing up in an Italian family, I visited many ristorantes and pizzerias. Early on in life I noticed that there were always several shakers of Romano cheese, chili peppers, Oregano, and garlic either on the counters or tables.

As I got older, I cooked in several different Italian ristorantes and pizzerias. Then, I really began to take notice of how frequently these condiments were being used. But, it wasn't until later in my life when the idea for Garpepano™ came to me.

For the last seven years, it has been a ritual for my best friend "Reds" Solloway to meet me at DeSantis' Gourmet Pizza Grill & Bar for Monday Night Football. Every Monday night my friends and I would order a couple of pizzas. One friend would grab the Romano cheese and sprinkle it on all of the pizzas, followed by others grabbing Oregano, chili peppers, and garlic, generously covering all of the pizzas. This is when it dawned on me. I said to Reds, "Wouldn't it be great if we could put all of these ingredients into one shaker?"

Since February 16, 2005, Reds and I have been developing the recipe for Garpepano®. Through trial and error and many different ingredient combinations, we are proud to let the world enjoy our new creation, Garpepano®. Production and sales of Garpepano® started on August 22, 2007. I'm sure you will love it too. I'd like to offer a special thanks to my wife, Kim, and Reds' wife, Shirley, and both of our families for helping to make our dream a reality!
