Can you believe it? We’re almost at the end of January already! With 2016 well underway, it’s time to look forward to what great things the new year will bring. As ever for our Gastronomia, it promises to be a year filled with plenty of freshly made, seasonal dishes for you to take on the go.
Whether you’ve started the year with a food related resolution or not, you can enjoy the authentic taste of Italy on us all year long, even on a health-kick! Our resolution is the same as always: to work with nature to bring you top quality food and the best flavour experience, whether dining out with us, dining in with food from our deli or a quick snack on the go.
It’s really important to us that we work with the seasons to give you quality ingredients at their most flavoursome. Not only this, it means you can enjoy different tasty Italian dishes throughout the year.
Our motto is Food, Family, Life & Passion. For Italians food is not merely a means for survival. Food defines us. Enjoying a meal with friends or family is the main ingredient of any Italian dish. Slowing down the process of cooking and taking the time out of your day to slow down, relax and enjoy the company of friends and family. Usually at family gatherings it’s all about traditional local food. This means the food will be excellent, locally sourced and tested countless times.
For us, it’s important we give you an authentic Italian food experience, whether you dine with us, take your food on the go or enjoy it around the dinner table in the evening. Part of achieving this is working with the produce that’s in season in order to make the most of delicious Italian flavours. We work with the fruit and vegetables which are ripe and juicy at the time, in order to create truly mouth-watering dishes.
It’s also about making sure we bring that real Italian quality to our foods, and what better way to do that than source our produce directly from the country. We work with many different suppliers to bring you the best Italian cheeses, fruits, flour and other produce to ensure you get that authentic experience. In addition, we also work with local producers in Scotland to give you the best of both worlds. For instance, all our fish and meat are sourced in Scotland, helping local businesses whilst offering you delicious fresh food every day.
Above all, we place authenticity and locality at the heart of our deli choices because that’s what brings you the best quality snacks, street foods and hearty Italian meals. It is widely acknowledged in the industry that by using products in season rather than out of season, you will receive a better quality of fruit, veg and overall dish. There are also wider benefits like sourcing from local and smaller producers which can ensure more care and love over our foods, and of course the environmental benefit of using things as nature produces them.
Whether you enjoy our homemade focaccia, take-home lasagne dishes or tasty panzerotti as an on-the-go lunch, be sure to keep an eye out for the ever-changing seasonal treats at our Gastronomia.
