Today I picked up an Italian deli picnic box from the lovely Valentina Langley of La Pineta Italian Deli in Truro.
With my husband and baby in tow we ventured to the beautiful village of Devoran and sat by the waters edge and opened our picnic box and just cooed over all the goodies inside. Our eyes just got bigger and bigger as we saw the generous portions of lasagna and cocoa topped tiramisu.
The contents of this box included:
ANTIPASTIFine charcuterie of San Daniele (18 month Capocollo Toscano , Speck del Trentinos ) prosciutto, Coppa Di Parma, and Salame from Campania.
A selection of Cheese from the Campania region of Burrata, Provola and Scamorza affumicata.
All served with La Pineta’s homemade preserved mushrooms, peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, homemade Olive and Sun-dried tomato Bread.
Lasagna da Cellole
Tiramisu dalla Mamma.
We started with the lasagna. It was layer upon layer of surprises with egg, meatballs to fennel and chorizo. I've never eaten a lasagna quite like this.
The Burrata soft and oozy which complimented the basil and antipasti produce. This was my first time trying this cheese and I'd happily eat again.
My personal favourites were the preserved peppers, mushrooms and spicy roasted broccoli with a divine infused oil that I couldn't stop soaking up the sun-dried tomato bread in.
Everything was moorish. The quality of the Campanian cured meats were great especially the fennel salame, so thick and juicy.
But boy was that tiramisu out of this world. Velvety smooth with a cocoa topping, Italian Mascarpone with layers of ladyfingers and surprising chunks of chocolate and nuts.
These picnic boxes are perfect for date days and nights and family get togethers. Highly recommend. We had such a wonderful brunch, bubba even enjoyed nibbling on a few bits.
Looking forward to collaborating with Valentina when things have calmed down and we can all dine together again.
