Each item is carefully sourced and ethically produced, ensuring a Christmas filled with deliciousness and compassion. But what’s really inside this treasure trove, and why does it make for the perfect festive gift? Read our post below to learn more.
A Pasta Lover’s Dream
First up, let’s talk about pasta. This hamper features two pasta varieties: Bronze Die Cut Gragnano Spaghetti Pasta and Bronze Die Cut Penne Pasta, each weighing 500g. These pastas are produced in Gragnano, the birthplace of dry pasta, and are bronze die cut. This special manufacturing technique gives the pasta a rough texture, allowing it to absorb sauces more efficiently. It’s the perfect base for creating a wide range of Italian meals, from a classic spaghetti with organic pesto to a spicy penne arrabiata.
The hamper also offers you the chance to master the art of risotto-making. It includes Wholegrain Black Venus Rice, a medium whole grain, aromatic black rice with a nutty flavour. This rice is perfect for a Porcini mushroom risotto, allowing the rich, earthy flavours of the mushrooms to shine through. If you want to make a risotto but are short on time, the Pumpkin Risotto Mix made with superfine Carnaroli rice has you covered. All you need to do is simply add olive oil and follow the easy cooking instructions for a sumptuous meal.
A good pasta or risotto dish is incomplete without a flavourful sauce. This is where the Boscaiola Dried Pasta Sauce Mix comes in. A 50g pack is all you need to whip up a tasty tomato and Boscaiola sauce in minutes. To elevate your sauce, the hamper includes Slow Food San Marzano Tomato Passata. Made from a rare tomato variety, this passata is a special ingredient that will make your dishes stand out.
The Basil Flavoured Extra Virgin Oil is a beautiful blend of fresh basil and cold-pressed olive oil. Drizzle it over a Caprese salad or bruschetta to heighten the flavours. And speaking of flavour, the Organic Pesto in this hamper is a vegan marvel – all the deliciousness of traditional Ligurian pesto, but without any cheese or garlic.
Snacks and More
When it comes to snacking, you’ll love the Grilled Peppers with Garlic and Oregano. These are perfect as part of an antipasti platter or to add extra flavour to your dishes. The Dried Porcini Mushrooms are a gourmet touch, handpicked from the Sila National Park and dried naturally.
What’s a Christmas feast without dessert? The Dairy-Free Modican Chocolate with Almonds is an ancient Aztec recipe adapted for modern palates. Crumbly and rich, it’s a chocolate lover’s dream. Round off your gastronomic journey with Organic Liquorice Tronchetti, presented in a quaint little tin, and adding a sophisticated touch to your snacking.
Finally, everything comes neatly packed in a reusable wooden crate, wrapped in cellophane and tied with a colourful ribbon. A personalised gift message can be added at checkout, making this hamper a fantastic and thoughtful gift. So, whether you’re looking to spoil someone special or treat yourself, the Italian vegan Christmas hamper is a festive feast of cruelty-free delights.
