Whenever you watch a cooking show, and the chef is talking through the ingredients they’re about to use, does it ever make you ask the question “OK, so where on earth do I buy that from then?”
And then, I do one of two things:
I either immediately give up on the idea of cooking the dish.
Or, I go to what feels like a hundred different stores, trying to find the ingredient. And when I do get the item I’m looking for, I’ve built up such an expectation that I always end up disappointed in the final result.
But then, after a couple of years of this frustrating existence (I’m sometimes a slow learner), I finally caught on.
Yes, you can never underestimate the importance of quality, when it comes to your food ingredients. But the secret is to find the good ingredients you like, and then use them in a recipe.
And that’s exactly what you should do with the products brought to you by the company in this week’s Vendor Spotlight:
Pasta & Truffles aren’t like most of the other suppliers on our site. They don’t actually produce anything themselves but instead are a curator of some of the finest Italian ingredients you can buy.And when I say finest, I really mean the best.
And when I say finest, I really mean the best.
The founders, Margherita and Paul – she’s Italian and he’s British – supply the head chefs of some of the most distinguished restaurants, from London to Hong Kong. All of their products come from small, artisan farmers who use traditional (and usually top secret) methods to craft their wares.
So, it’s not just pasta. It’s pasta how it really should be – and no words can describe the difference, you have to taste for yourself. (Kind of like taking the red pill or the blue pill. I’m only promising you the truth, nothing more!)
Their truffle products are quite frankly, highly sought commodities and even their lentils get shipped across the world to these most discerning restaurants.
You don’t need fancy recipes, you just need these high-quality ingredients for a truly superb Italian feast. Do yourself a favour, get over to BoroughBox.com and order their products today.
