    • TASTE / Fresh Filled Pasta Serving Suggestions

      Our fresh filled pasta has been very popular, particularly at markets and for local delivery. Here are some ideas we like for serving. You are always welcome to pick your own bunch of herbs from outside the shop when visiting too, as all of these fillings are so flavoursome that they are delicious with just a drizzle of oil/melted butter and a herb of your choice. Prepare the pasta by adding to a pan of boiling water and simmering gently for 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on them when they rise to the top and remove with a slotted spoon. Adding a splash of the cooking water too gives them a good glossy coating of the sauce. Beetroot and Goat Cheese Ravioli with Walnut Pesto In a blender whizz up some parsley, olive oil, walnuts, pecorino and/or parmigiano, a squeeze of lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. I like to estimate and play with the quantities but for a more precise recipe you could try this one I also really like this pasta with a dressing made of olive oil and Bumblees Tarragon vinegar. Gnocchi with Truffle Butter Pair the fresh gnocchi with slithers of our truffle butter tossed through. You can find it here Aubergine Parmigiana or Basil and Ricotta Tortelloni are both good with a tomato sauce, as is the Wild Boar. Find one here. Pea and Shallot Ravioli with Lemon Butter Toss through some lemon butter and breadcrumbs for a little texture. To create the lemon butter, soften 100 g of butter/dairy-free spread then mix until fluffy with an electric mixer. Grate in 1 tsp of lemon zest and a squeeze of lemon juice the whip until blended. Pot it and chill until ready to use. This is also a lovely way to accompany the Asparagus Tortelloni. Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli with Nutmeg Butter As above but switch the lemon for 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Pumpkin and Sage Tortelloni with Sage Butter As above but use a little chopped fresh sage. We like to top our finished pasta dish with a fried sage leaf too. Heat oil in a small pan on a medium-high heat. Fry around 6 sage leaves at a time until crisp, this should only take 2–3 seconds. Pop onto kitchen paper and sprinkle over a little sea salt. And finally, one way we love to serve our tortelloni is with two or three on top of a soup. Here they are topping off a tomato and cavolo nero blend. We think these dishes all make a perfect special meal even when you are short on time. Please do let us know if you find any ways that you love to serve our pasta! Buon Appetito!

    • STYLE / Why do we need a Fashion Revolution?

      What is Fashion Revolution? Fashion Revolution was founded by Orsola Del Castro and Cary Somers and has become a global movement co-ordinated across several countries. On 24 April 2013 the Rana Plaza building in Dhaka, Bangladesh collapsed. 1138 people died and another 2500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. The people crushed under those eight floors were manufacturing clothing for the western clothing market and were mostly young women. Believing that this loss of life was too huge not to stand up and demand change, Fashion Revolution was born on this day, calling it a metaphorical call to arms. The cost of fashion should not be someone’s life. Today people and environment are still suffering as a result of how fashion is made, sourced and produced. Fashion Revolution Week is an annual event to mark the anniversary, this year it runs from 20-26th April. However, the campaign works all year to highlight and tackle issues which include: human rights, fair pay, protecting artisan craft, the manufacturing process including CO2 emissions and use of toxic dyes and chemicals, overconsumption and waste. The #whomademyclothes online campaign acts as a starting point for greater transparency, asking brands and retailers to take a closer look at their supply chains and ultimately become more accountable for their impact on people and planet. A Fashion Revolution is one that loves clothes but wants the wearer to feel proud in wearing them, not guilty. It strives to see fashion used as a force for positive change. Olive and Rosy guide to being a Fashion Revolutionary 1.Be Curious Become informed by asking brands about who made their clothes and what is in them. Find a template here. Check the tags for this information when shopping. Find out more about the issues through reading (book list post coming soon!) video content such as The True Cost, online study such as this fab course on Future Learn or attending events. This year of course, Fashion Revolution are making their events digital, on Friday 24th April, for example, they host a live stream Q&A 2. Know Yourself By knowing the colours and styles which suit you and your lifestyle, you can make more mindful and informed purchases in future. This avoids the risk of items sitting unworn in the back of wardrobes, instead allowing them to be celebrated as they deserve. It can also help you to see items that you already own in a new light or help you to wear them in a different way. Time spent with a stylist is definitely a worthwhile investment if you feel you have lost your way with this a little. We can recommend Style by Louise or Chantelle Znideric 3. Love your Clothes Care for them with the correct washing techniques. Repair tears, missing buttons etc. Either do this yourself or visit a repair café. Extend the lifespan of your clothing - if you are no longer wearing something either have it made into something new or swap it with friends or at an event. Write a love story to a favourite piece of clothing! How did you meet? What adventures have you been on together? This is a sweet idea that forms part of this year’s Fashion Revolution Week. 4. Create Change Remember that every pound you spend acts as a vote for the kind of world that you want to see and live in (Anna Lappe), so please support small ethical brands and make sustainable switches where you can such as choosing organic cotton. This sends a huge message of support to those striving to make the fashion industry a better one and ultimately can help to make better practices the norm. Together we can create change! Worn with Love: Wellington’s Sustainable Fashion Week We will be holding this event in September (postponed from May) so please follow on social media for more details nearer the time. Join us for some revolutionary inspiration in our very own community!

    • TASTE / Our Quarantine Kitchen

      This post will evolve over the next few weeks as a kind of scrapbook of some of our weekly menu plans, tips and as a diary of things we have tried or created during these strange times. We hope you will enjoy sharing it with us and maybe discover some new things to make with ingredients from the store cupboard and local suppliers and produce deliveries. First up is our recipe for Fennel soup inspired by Jamie Oliver's in Veg. W suggest making extra as when cooled the soup will thicken and makes a fab white and spinach sauce which we used in later recipes over the week. The feathery fennel leaves can be kept and added to a salad or sprinkled over an open sandwich. This recipe can easily be made vegan.
