Everything you need to know about Burrata cheese

Emily Shaw

Burrata is a type of cheese produced in the Southern region of Puglia, Italy. It's made using mozzarella, rennet and cream (from cow’s milk).  Burrata became more widely available in the 1950s. At this point, multiple cheese factories began producing it as a way to use up any leftover mozzarella scraps. This delicious cheese is known for having an unusual texture. It has a solid outer casing, with a soft and creamy centre. It’s extremely indulgent and a great choice for the warmer months ahead! Cut through the unique, solid casing of the burrata to reveal a soft, creamy inside. ...

How to create the perfect dining experience at home

Italians believe that food should be enjoyed and celebrated through the connection of family and friends. A meal should quite simply never be rushed.

Considering socialising is off the cards for now, it’s nice to have something to look forward to in the evenings, and making a few changes to your evening routine could ultimately elevate your overall sense of happiness.

A Guide To Drinking Coffee In Italy

Emily Shaw

We’re Italian, which means we love coffee. It’s just as much part of our culture as a delicious pasta dish - which is why we’ve created two special blends for you to try. But before you do, get to know the basics of Italian coffee culture - from the absence of the ‘take-away’ to regional specialities. Never drink a cappuccino after 11am Traditionally, Italians will never drink a milky coffee after 11am. Why? Because milk is thought to be too heavy to drink in the afternoon or after a meal. And if you think about how filling a cappuccino or latte can...

A perfect recipe for romance this Valentine’s Day

Emily Shaw

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, our date night options aren’t quite the same this year. While candle-lit restaurants are off the table, it’s time to get creative.  After all, the tradition was born from adversity. It’s said that Valentine, a Roman priest who served during the third century, performed secret marriage ceremonies against the Emperor’s orders - he believed it made his soldiers weak and unfit for battle. There are several origin stories about Valentine’s Day, but they all have one thing in common: a kind and romantic figure who acted to preserve love against all odds. Just because you...

The ultimate guide to Italy’s most loved cheeses

Emily Shaw

Italians love cheese. In fact, Italy has the largest variety of cheese in the world, with over 2,500 traditional kinds. Many of these hold protected status which means their authentic production, unique recipes and traditional names can’t be meddled with by other countries. Many towns have been crafting world-famous cheese for centuries. For example, communities in the Aosta Valley first produced their renowned Fontina cheese in the 12th century. Now awarded protected status, this semi-soft cheese must always be made authentically, using unpasteurized milk from a single milking. At Scarpetta, we use plenty of classic Italian cheeses in our recipes....

The History of Pasta

Emily Shaw

The origin of pasta really depends on your definition. The ancient Etruscans, who were around from about 900BC, combined and cooked a combination of cereal, grain and water to make a paste. Some consider that an extremely basic form of pasta. However, if we think about the delicious dishes we enjoy today, it’s best to jump forward a few centuries.  As with most long-existing foods, there are a few stories about pasta's origin. A common story, but one that’s been debunked, dates pasta back to the 13th century and Marco Polo. The myth says that Polo travelled back to Italy...
