Jarrold – January 23

Food & Drink

Clean Living

Dare we mention the words “Spring Clean” in the month of January? It might be a bit soon but after the past few months filled with decadent dining, this could be the time to get your food cupboards organised and ensure there aren’t any stray sell-by dates in the back.

If your cupboard is reminiscent of spaghetti junction with packets of pasta, each containing just shy of one portion, you’re not alone, but it’s time to say goodbye with a jumbled pasta dish for supper.

If you have summery shapes such as trofie, strozzapreti and fusilli, mix with pesto and serve for an easy meal. A fresh plant-based pesto such as Shore Italian Basil and Seaweed Peso (108g, £4.90) could make the perfect January evening feast. It also makes a great topping for pizza, spread in a sandwich or as a drizzle for roasted vegetables.

If you have tubes and ribbons languishing, try a rich and flavoursome ragu such as this La Madia Wild Boar Ragi (180g, £5.60) or if you fancy something a little different, why not try Bernardini Black Truffle Ragu (180g, £11.00)?

Now for a full clear-out pasta dish, you could just mix in some delicious olive oil such as this infused Bio Orto Extra Virgin Olive Oil in either Chilli or Basil (200ml, £13.00) and sprinkle with some Parmigiano Reggiano from the Jarrold deli counter. Buon appetite!

Home and Dry

Gone are the days when choosing the non-alcoholic option meant you are faced with something overly-sweet or uninspiring (elderflower anyone?).

With many people moving towards an alcohol-free lifestyle, it would seem that the market has recognised the need for sophistication in their choice of booze-free beverages.

At Jarrold, we stock an array of low and non-alcohol drinks to help keep you motivated but special mention has to be made for Seedlip, a British company that makes plant-based liquor substitutes which are said to ‘solve the dilemma of what to drink when you are not drinking’.

Seedlip Garden 108 is a fresh and herbal distilled non-alcoholic spirit which can be served with a selection of tonic waters or ginger ale for a refreshing drink.

A great alternative for gin drinkers and produced in copper stills, the Garden 108 profile includes peas, hay, spearmint, rosemary, hops and thyme.

Fancy taking up the challenge for the month? Discover Seedlip in the Jarrold Food Hall.
