Natoora, French & Italian food delivered to your door, Natoora describe themselves thus “A unique range of superlative fresh food and groceries, including fruits and vegetables from the markets of Milan and Paris, delivered to your home”
They were kind enough to offer me a trial selection and this was delivered promptly in chilled packaging wrap and cool blocks, not as eco friendly as the Paganum sheeps wool packaging solution but still very effective.
I tried a selection of cured meats including Jambon de Bayonne, Mortadella Di Bologna Felsineo, Breasola Punta Anca IGP, Prosciutto Cotto and Prosciutto di Parma. Our favourites were the excellent Mortadella and superb Breasola I must have a go at making my own Breasola!
On the cheese front we tried the classic unpasteurised Brie de Meaux which was particularly smelly and full of natural grass flavours, just how I like it! and a huge piece of Parmigiano Reggiano (0.67kg) which has been superb, buying a bigger lump helps it keep and is a fantastic must have ingredient and keeps for weeks if not months.
Also included were some dry goods including, long spaghetti, our family favourite linguine, Vialone Nano Novello rice, celery crackers perfect with blue cheese and some delicious Fairtrade Alter Eco Organic milk chocolate with hazelnuts.
The meat available is more local coming from Jack O Shea’s, Tuscan Farmers Sausage & Grass Fed Black Angus Burgers were both proper meat and excellent quality, the Tuscan farmers sausage are particularly authentic coarse continental style sausage, you either love em or hate em!
All in all a great selection of continental grub supplied efficiently by mail order, well worth a try. www.natoora.co.uk
