I well and truly broke my January detox this week. And I feel like I did it in the best way possible, in a shameful overindulgence of toasted walnut bread with delicious creamy Burrata and heaps of freshly made pesto. Cheese! How I missed you. I’m so glad you’re back in my life and I promise never to give you up again. And I’ve got Delicatezza, the online Italian deli to thank for my official goodbye to my health kick. They delivered the burrata to my doorstep on a rainy night last week along with a whole heap of other freshly made Italian goodies. As well as the cheese (which btw was a very reasonable £3.49 for two portions), they delivered some of the best fresh pasta I’ve eaten since last Summer when I spent every weekend gorging on the Cooking Cooks incredible fresh pappardelle.
I had a second fresh pasta from their range, a bouncy parpadelle of really good quality and flavour which I paired with Polpette alla Pizzaiola, a rich Italian meatball sauce, made with beef and veal meatballs. The sauce was bursting with flavour but wasn’t quite big enough to distribute over the two portions of parpadelle meaning I had to bring in see emergency passata. Ill order double next time to make sure it stretches.
With a bit if bulking out of cupboard goods and fresh breads the delivery easily could’ve fed four so cost wise its very much on par with any run of the mill takeaway but quality wise delivers so much more. With a next day delivery service too it’s really convenient.
Thanks to the Delicatezza team for my delicious treats- I’ll definately be ordering again.
