Creative cooks will love adding a drizzle of these flavoured oils to their favourite dishes.
Iliana produces an organic and award winning range of high quality, aromatic Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oils infused with a selection of flavours - Basil, Orange and Truffle. The basil olive oil is delicious drizzled over a roast tomato risotto, grilled vegetables and fish or in a simple vinaigrette. For something sweet try adding orange flavoured olive oil to a traditional greek semolina halva. We love using the truffle oil drizzled over a white pizza, wild mushroom risotto or a simple cheese omelette. It also pairs well with potatoes, pasta, polenta and risotto. Yum!
If you enjoyed the fresh pasta from Il Locale Italian Restaurant, you are going to love our new Gnocchi and Ravioli to go in our Ready Meals range.
The head chef from Il Locale has handmade authentic Italian restaurant style food for you to eat at home. The Truffle Gnocchi is rich, earthy and full of flavour - delicate potato gnocchi is wrapped around a filling of ricotta, mushroom and truffle. The Ravioli are a classic Italian combination of roasted butternut squash, ricotta and amaretti filling. Both are best served with a simple Burnt Sage Butter sauce - you can get the recipe here.
Bold, full of flavour and true to the name - fans of fiery food will adore our new Sri Lankan Curry blend.
A fragrant spice mix of coriander, cumin, fennel, cardamon, cloves, cinnamon and curry leaves - our traditional Sir Lankan Curry powder is available either roasted or unroasted. Roasted curry powder has stronger flavours and fragrances making it an ideal partner for meat curries using chicken, beef and lamb. Whereas the unroasted (raw) curry powder is more delicate and is best used in fish and vegetable dishes. Try our green been coconut curry and a classic beef curry - both recipes combine these distinctive Sri Lankan spices with creamy coconut milk. Go on, give your tastebuds a workout.
