Internationally known food and wine authority Darrell Corti — who insists on calling himself a “grocer” — holds a roomful of awards and honors bestowed on him during a long career. He also sits on various boards in advisory capacities.

Those include his membership in the Culinary Council of the food-and-drink-centric The Daily Meal. Corti is featured on its site in a 10-question mini-profile, a new series introducing The Daily Meal’s council of heavy-hitting food-industry professionals.

One question he’s asked is, “What are the food or drink products you're proudest of having introduced to American consumers?” His reply: “Zinfandel, aceto balsamico tradizionale (balsamic vinegar) and Catalan olive oil.”

Corti Bros. Market is at 5810 Folsom Blvd., Sacramento; (916) 736-3800, www.cortibros.biz.
