Mediterranean Food Hamper With Voucher For Personal Travel Consultation

Do you know someone who is thinking of going on holiday, but stressed out by the thought of hours spent scouring the internet for ideas and places to stay? Wanting to go away but not sure of where to go and/or what to do? Wanting to ‘call a friend’ to ask for the answers?  If so we have the perfect gift solution!

 

Who?

Lucy has her own bespoke travel company, Lucy Loves Travel, and has spent the past fifteen years working in travel throughout Europe, both as a tour guide and also setting up bespoke trips.

What?

We are offering a box of delicious Saporista goodies accompanied by a voucher for a travel consultation with Lucy. You will let Lucy know what area (s) you are thinking of travelling to and what you enjoy doing. Either Lucy or one of her team will then provide you with suggestions of places to visit that you might not have considered, assist you with understanding the local culture and habits in order to ensure that you secure the most out of your holiday, give you helpful hints as to timings, so that for example, you don’t find yourself missing lunch or with 4m people in the same place as you at the same moment. In the case of Spain, France and Italy she can even teach you some of the local language. It’s an introduction to your holiday with top tips about how to make the most of your time there. This combination of Saporista goodies accompanied by a travel consultancy makes for the perfect gift or self-gift. 

Why?

To take the stress out of trying to figure out where to go, the best time to go, Lucy can offer an overview as someone who has travelled across the continent at all times of the year and who lives in Spain having previously lived in Italy and France. 

When?

Whether you’re looking to travel winter or summer, spring or autumn, Lucy can offer advice for trips at any point of the year. 

How?

Upon ordering the travel package, you will receive a Saporista box full of goodies related to your trip, along with a voucher for a consultation with Lucy who has spent the past fifteen years working in travel throughout Europe and who has her own bespoke travel company. She will offer her expertise and ideas based upon trips you are interested in taking and can help set up as much or as little of the trip as you wish. The consultation will take place via Zoom and your recipient can arrange it directly with Lucy at a time that suits them.

This makes for an ideal and very unique birthday, special occasion or Christmas present or self-gift. Perfect for someone planning a special holiday, a honeymoon, a big birthday or anniversary trip, or a big family vacation.

Prosecco DOCG

A superior Italian dry, sparkling wine from a respected family run vineyard in the Valdobbiadene region- the traditional heart of Prosecco production

Iozzino's Fusilli Casarecce Pasta

These short noodles were traditionally made by rolling small rectangles of dough around a thin wooden pin. The twisted shape makes it perfect for holding sauces such as a simple pesto, or a chunky sauce with tomatoes, cheese and vegetables. Iozzino uses 100% Italian wheat and the water of their local spring to make their bronze drawn pasta. The bronze die and the slow drying give the pasta a rough texture that is a perfect vehicle for your sauce.

Perche Ci Credo's 'Cacio & Pepe' sauce

A full-bodied tomato based sauce with an intense flavour of cacio cheese and black pepper. It's inspired by a simple and tasty Roman recipe that combines a lightly fried onion, fresh tomato pulp, extra virgin olive oil and a shower of cacio cheese and black pepper. A pinch of parsley is added at the end of the cooking process.

Leccino olives

These are hand-picked and left to ferment, to eliminate the bitter taste of oleuropein (an alkaloid found in olives). They are then seasoned with salt, flavoured with oregano, pitted and preserved in extra virgin olive oil. They are perfect served with aperitif drinks and cocktails, or an excellent ingredient to use when making pizzas, focaccias or any number of pasta sauces or meat and fish dishes.

Green olive pate

Produced by a Sicilian co-operative committed to preserving sustainable, local methods of processing the region's prized Nocellara olives. Great as a dip, or on crusty ciabatta bread, stirred into pasta or spread onto meat or fish before roasting.

Taralli Classici

Zio Pasquale's taralli are the best version of this traditional Puglian snack that we have tasted. We’re in love with the crispy fennel infused mini-bagels that crumble in the mouth with an intense flavour experience. Perfect with a chilled glass of fizz!

Barroero's 'L'altra Torta' (meaning 'other cake')

This is indeed a cake like no other. It's a delicious brownie-like cake, hand-made from delicious Piedmont IGP hazelnut paste and dark chocolate, without flour. You have to try this melt in the mouth treat!

'Pimiento Cherry Relleno de Queso' (cherry peppers stuffed with cheese)

These delicious little snacks are popular nibbles in Spain, where peppers thrive in the year round sunshine of its southern regions. Conservas Alamanaque is a small, family run factory, using traditional artisanal methods to produce canned organic fruit and vegetables from the Ebro riverbank.

Crema de Alcachofa (artichoke cream)

Create a delicious appetiser by spreading this delicious 'crema de alcachofa' (artichoke cream) on toast or crackers, use as a dip with breadsticks or fresh vegetable crudités, or as a topping for canapés. In Spain, artichoke is prized for both its taste and its health benefits.

Chocolate 'Baci' or 'kisses' from Cortemilia

These are hand made from delicious hazelnut and white chocolate cream enclosed in a dark chocolate casing. Piedmontese hazelnuts are regarded as the best in the world, and the trees of the Langhe region produce a hazelnut with a unique, delicate flavour.

'Almendra caramalizada' (caramelised almonds)

These sweet almonds are from the ancient Spanish drylands of Maials in Lleida. This dryland area has the perfect climate for growing almond trees. The locally grown almonds are soft toasted, and then an artisanal method is used to caramelise them with a thin layer of transparent sugar that does not detract from the authentic taste and flavour of the nut. Perfect for sharing with friends, or an indulgent treat for yourself with a cup of coffee.
