Tuscany Corner Launches An Exclusive Valentine's Day Hamper, Perfect For Dinner For Two!

 A few months ago, I reviewed (here) some of the authentic Italian products from Tuscany Corner that had just launched in the UK. If you fancy cooking up a special Valentine's meal at home (or giving your other half a nudge in the right direction !), you might like to buy one of their newly created Valentine's Day hampers. I love the fact that you can create your own hampers too, for that truly personal touch. If you've got kids and a romantic night out is off the menu, this would make a great alternative.


Tuscany Corner, a new range of the finest quality authentic Italian, organic produce, is proud to announce the launch of their exclusive Valentine's Day hamper. Perfect for those who want to stay in and cook a romantic meal for their loved one, each hamper comes packed with delicious Tuscany Corner ingredients and three inspirational recipes which make a delicious, authentic, Italian meal for two for just £35!

The exclusive Valentine's Day hampers, include: a rich ragu (meat sauce) or a mouth-watering porcini mushroom sauce, a bottle of organic red or white wine (750ml), a percorino degli sposi cheese (translated this means the bride & groom's pecorino, perfect for the most romantic day of the year!), as well as a jar of honey or Chianti jelly and a 500g bag pasta, all presented in a delightful hamper.

An example of a recipe included in the hamper is listed below:

RECIPE 3: Rigatoni "cacio e pepe" (pepper and Tuscan pecorino cheese)
Serves 2:

Fill a large saucepan with three litres of water. Bring the water to the boil and add a level tablespoon of salt together with the fresh pasta. Leave the pasta to cook for 20 minutes. In the meantime, take a small saucepan and add 100 grams of grated mature pecorino cheese, a little cracked black pepper and 5/6 grams of crushed, whole peppercorns. Add a little water from the pasta and whip the cheese until it becomes creamy. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and place in a frying pan with a little water and the creamed cheese. Stir thoroughly off the heat to stop the cheese from becoming hard. Serve with a little more cracked pepper and grated pecorino on top.

With a superb selection of contents, a Tuscany Corner Hamper is the perfect solution for those who want to cook a delicious meal in the comfort of their own home for their loved one this Valentine's Day.

The integrity and simplicity of the products in the Tuscany Corner range speak for themselves.  All are typical of the famed Mediterranean Diet, including extra virgin olive oil, cured meat and salami, traditional Tuscan cheese, handmade pasta, full-bodied pasta sauces and compotes, all organic and available exclusively from London's Terracafe and online at  

If you would like to create your own hamper, please contact for further information.
