Thursday Tasting at 3: Pasta Perfection with the Prunotto Organic Range
This week’s Thursday tasting at 3 is all about convenience without compromising on quality and flavour. A firm favourite with our customers at Ardkeen Quality Food Store for many years, the Prunotto Organic range of pasta sauces and pesto are made with 100% organic ingredients and contains no sugar, no concentrate and no dried herbs. With unsurpassed quality, full of fresh, vibrant flavours they allow for convenience on busier days or that special occasion meal where flavour and quality of ingredients is all important.
Located in the important food region and UNESCO World Heritage Site of ‘The Langhe’ in the rolling hills of Piedmont in northern Italy, Prunotto place great importance on farming practices that respect both nature and the consumer.
Using only their own organically grown produce, tomatoes and vegetables are harvested and used within 48 hours so ensuring they capture all the genuine flavours and quality in their sauces and presto. With this emphasis on purity and quality, the Prunotto range is both convenient and versatile, allowing for many different dishes depending on the occasion. The pasta sauces are ready use and need only to be heated and added to cooked pasta. They can also be used as a base for your own recipes instead of fresh tomatoes
Prunotto’s commitment to the environment has also led to them investing heavily in clean energies. They are now self-sufficient in energy through the use of photovoltaic panels on the roofs of all their farm buildings. This type of energy generation keeps the land free from concrete plinths and allows Prunotto to cultivate their land with care and love as their ancestors before them did.
I will be sampling some of these delicious Prunotto pesto and pasta sauces on Thursday from 3 so please do pop in. The full range will be available with Chicken in the delicate ‘Crushed Tomatoes with Sweet Peppers’ and a plant based option with mixed bean in the more robust ‘Crushed Tomatoes Spicy Arrabiata’ for tasting. Pestos will include ‘Organic Red Pesto’ ‘Organic basil Pesto’ and ‘Organic Pumpkin Pesto’ think cream of pumpkin and curry… YUM!
