An exclusive giveaway in collaboration with Fine Italy.
Portofino is a fishing village on the Italian Riviera coastline, southeast of Genoa city. Its famous pastel-coloured houses, high-end boutiques and seafood restaurants fringe its Piazzetta, a small cobbled square overlooking the harbour, which is lined with yachts.
You can bring a taste of this Italian territory into your own home with the Portofino menu from Fine Italy. With this menu you will find some hand selected dishes that the region is famous for; everything you need for a four course meal for four people.
For starters, you’ve got Taggiasca olives, reknowned worldwide for the intensity of their flavour, prepared into a spreadable paté served on bruschetta. On the side wild boar salami, from animals from the Ligurian hinterland; a delicious, mildly spiced salami which makes a rather superb introduction to the rest of the meal.
For the first course Ligurian basil, which is universally recognised as the best basil in terms of balance and the richness of flavors in its bouquet, is used to create a pesto to delicately coat linguine, a pasta designed to be served with such a delicious green sauce.
The Fine Italy Portofino box comes with a 500 gram packet of linguine and two jars of pesto, so plenty linguine for a few other meals as well as two jars of pesto.
For the second course: delicately spiced stewed Ligurian squid with potatoes, a very old recipe utilising seafood fished from the nearby sea.
Soft Sassello amaretti biscuits served with black cherries in Freisa wine are a great end to this hearty Italian meal, and to serve along side, any time you wish, a delicate white wine made from the Pigato grape, a variety planted primarily in Liguria.
Fine Italy prides itself on sourcing the finest in Italian foods and creating delicious, authentic menu boxes for the discerning UK consumer. Prices start from £87.90 with free shipping in a classy wooden crate.
