Sal Impastato grew up in Sicily. As a young boy, Sal Impastato learned to make fresh cheese from goat's milk, olive oil from his family's olive groves, wine from his family's vineyards and homemade tomato sauce with freshly picked tomatoes from the garden. Sal Impastato, at 18 years of age, lured by New Orleans' blossoming culinary scene, left Sicily in the 1960's to work with his uncle, Joe Impastato, at the Napoleon House in New Orleans, Louisiana. Owned and operated by the Impastato family since 1914, it is here that Sal Impastato began his journey through different kitchens across the South. Today, Sal and Judy's Products LLC operates in Slidell, LA and their line includes 19 total products, from the original tomato sauce to marinades, salad dressings, olive oil and olive salad.
