WORRIED ABOUT A SECOND LOCKDOWN? GET YOUR PASTA BY POST!
We’ll all remember the empty pasta shelves at the supermarket earlier this year but fear not, a new fresh pasta delivery service has launched in the UK, promising to bring the simplicity and beauty of classic Italian pasta dishes, delivered direct to you through your letterbox so no more scrambles at the supermarket!
Combining the tradition of Italian cuisine with the modernity of a technology, EKOOK uses the best produce from Italian artisans to create a menu that transports you to your favourite Italian trattoria featuring classic dishes from Rome to Sardinia.
Choose from a Tonnarello Cacio e Pepe and Black Truffle or Rigatone alla Gricia, Artichokes, Pecorino – classic Roman dishes, or familiar favourites like Tagliatelle Bolognese, Parmesan originating from Bologna in the Emilia-Romagna region. All the dishes are made with ingredients that are fresh and delivered daily direct from farmers in Italy. There’s also an opportunity to expand your knowledge of Italian pasta varieties and experiment with gnocchi, ravioli and lesser-known styles like strozzapreti, all within the comfort of your own home.
Prices start at £5.90 for one portion and ordering is flexible with no minimum or maximum order. So whether you’re in the mood for a solo dinner, or celebrating with your bubble, EKOOK can deliver.
Once ordered, your EKOOK fresh pasta and ingredients are sent to you next-day delivery (orders must be placed by 3pm the previous day) and delivered through your letterbox in eco-friendly packaging, without any contact.
Inside your EKOOK box you will find two QR codes: one will open into a video tutorial guiding you on how to best prepare and serve your pasta dish in the traditional style. The second provides a link to a playlist curated to enhance your dining experience, pairing sound to your palate for a full sensory experience. In less than five minutes EKOOK transports you to your own Italian ristorante. Buonissimo!
