I have to tell you about something which I experienced just recently. I received a lovely package in the post from Enjoy Italian Food. The box it arrived in was just beautiful. (I love beautiful boxes!)
When I opened it up, here is what was inside.
Absolutely everything I needed in order to create a beautiful Italian dish, including ALL of the ingredients needed except for cooking utensils and water . . . there was even a colapsable colander in the bottom of the box . . .
Along with an easy to follow, step by step recipe!! Everything in the box was well packaged.
There were two jars of this lovely Pesto. One of the jars of Pesto had come open, but that wasn't a problem. It is quite a concentrated Pesto and beautifully flavoured.
A nice wedge of some beautiful Italian Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese! I love Parmigiano Reggiano. It's flavour is gorgous and so much better than that cheese in the green cardboard tube I grew up on! Just the smell is to die for. You can't beat it!
A nice bottle of extra virgin Olive Oil. Tasted great just out of the bottle.
A package of Natural Sea Salt. Fabulous! (I told you literally everything I needed was in the box and it was!)
A bag of gorgeous Italian dried Pasta! REAL Italian pasta! When my ex employers went to Italy on their various trips they always brought back Italian Pasta. It was a real treat! I love Italian Pasta!
The instructions were really simple and easy to follow. It was a breeze . . .
Within about 20 minutes I had a beautiful dish of pasta sitting in front of me, waiting for me to dig in! Just look at the colour of that pesto sauce!
A final grating of that fab Parmesan and I was as happy as a clam!
I was one of the tastiest Italian dishes I had eaten in a long time. Seriously. I do cook myself pasta from time to time (as you know Todd is not a lover of Italian food). I have never had such nice ingredients to cook with however and this was a beautiful experience, both in the cooking and in the eating for me.
