  • Eat like an Italian

    20 July, 2015 Eat like an Italian

    If you’ve ever been on holiday to Italy, like us, you’ve probably eaten classic pizzas, pastas and risottos until you’re fit to burst. While sticking with what you know isn’t always a bad thing, delve a little deeper and you’ll find the true heart of the region; eating cotoletta in Milan, beans in Florence and artichokes in Campania will open up a whole new world of Italian cooking. We spoke to three Air B’n’B hosts about the food of their region, must-eats while you’re there, and asked about the best-kept secrets when it comes to eating out.

Christmas Gift Guide: Food and Drinks

Eve O'Sullivan
22 November, 2016

Ideal for food lovers or hard-to-buy-for family members.

For the beer snacker

Bundled together with a couple of decent pale ales, we can’t think of a better stocking filler - here’s your chance to ditch the unimaginative Christmas socks.

£20 (+£2.75 postage), Not On The High Street

For the gin lover

We at Cooked have long been fans of Sipsmith’s botanical gins, so needed no convincing that Mince Pie Gin is everything we want in a glass. The festive gift box features a 90ml bottle of limited edition Mince Pie Gin alongside a Sipsmith London Dry Gin miniature. The only question is which bottle to drink first.

£20 (including postage), Sipsmith

For the chocolate lover

There is no shortage of gift options for chocolate connoisseurs, but Divine’s beautifully packaged tasting set with flavour notes ranks as one of the best value for money. Featuring 12 little bars for sharing, should you be so generously inclined, this is an indulgent stocking filler - or a sneaky gift for yourself.

£5.50, Divine, also available in Oxfam stores, independent shops and BP forecourts

For the show-off host

Do we need to explain why this is so good? Thought not. The classic stand and knife also make this a fantastic party centrepiece for New Year’s Eve.

£30, Marks and Spencer

For the Italophile

Let’s face it, panettone is an easy win, but fans of Italian food will appreciate something different this year. A gift set of vin santo and cantucci will take your loved one back to their favourite holidays, and what better present is there than that?

£25, Carluccios
