We had the pleasure of trying out the Valentines Cook at Home Kit from Fidelari Pasta which can be delivered next day in London by a premium delivery service called Cosaporto.
Fidelari makes fresh, handmade pasta dishes, all their recipes are influenced by their Pugliese family heritage. With a little love, they have created something a bit special for lockdown Valentine’s Day so you can enjoy a romantic dinner at home with the one you love.
My meal arrived chilled and well packed all ready to heat and serve. So, with the table set and the wine chilled, we began the evening with some earthy ribbons of Troccoli pasta perfumed with the squid ink and topped with a delicious sultry octopus ragu.
This was followed by fluffy balloons of gnocchi with piquant Gorgonzola interior, topped with a perky pumpkin and thyme cream sauce and a splash of vincotto to give a little sweet acidity which is always appropriate for a Valentine’s meal. We mopped up the juices with some springy focaccia topped with salty olives tomatoes and olive oil, absolutely scrumptious, what an intimate carb-fest it was!
Of course, no perfect meal would be complete without something indulgent and sweet and what could be more romantic than an authentic Sicilian cannolo, fabulous crisp and crumbly cones stuffed with light and creamy fresh ricotta sprinkled with chocolate flakes.
This lovely handcrafted pasta meal is bound to impress and put a smile on your date’s face….a textural triumph sure to set the taste buds tingling.
