A few months ago I was reading Mrs Marmite Lover’s blog and stumbled upon her mention of a newly launched Italian online deli. Since my regular online deli (of which I had been a customer for 9 years) recently kind of annoyed me thanks to their lack of customer service, making me stop buying from them but I was longing for some fresh mozzarella, proper one, and similar home grown product. I decided to trust Mrs Marmite’s opinion and placed my first order from Delicatezza UK.
Fast forward a few months and I am now a regular with them. They are lovely people (they helped us for our recent fundraising lunch) and they have a growing selection of researched products as well as (unfortunately but such is life) mass market products and brands (which I used to buy myself years ago, mea culpa).
The Luganica sausage, freshly made in the UK using italian recipe, is great for a Neapolitan ragu, flavoursome, peppery and not too fatty.
A great selection of imported cheeses and meats is available as well: from salame felino to Sardinian pecorino, there is really a pretty wide choice. Dry products include of course pasta and the brands range from Barilla (ouch) to Gragnano artisan pasta (phew). Fresh pasta is made to order: choose the type of pasta, the filling and the amount, and voila’, pasta is delivered fresh and completely made to order. I have tried a couple of options and always found it enjoyable and fairly priced and some are quite flamboyant as well.
They are offering readers of Pasta Bites a 15% off introductory discount using code PASTABITES15 available until 15 December.
I did not receive any products to sample. I just really like their stuff! Opinions are my own.
