Entertaining can involve anything from friends dropping in for morning tea to a full-blown dinner party for ten. Having a selection of quality ingredients on hand, like those from Delmaine, means you’ll always have the makings of tasty nibbles or a fantastic meal. Here are some suggestions for deliciously versatile Delmaine products to add to your pantry to ensure you’re always ready to entertain:
ANTIPASTO A platter of beautiful delicatessen ingredients is ideal for a pre-lunch snack, with afternoon drinks or before dinner. Choose from Delmaine’s extensive range of antipasto products like olives, chargrilled capsicum, baby gherkins, pickled onions, sundried tomatoes and spicy jalapeños.
TINNED VEGETABLES With a tin of tomatoes in the pantry you’re only 20 minutes away from a beautiful sauce that can be used in any number of dishes. Delmaine’s range of tinned tomatoes is available plain or in a range of added value flavours like Basil or Garlic, to add a quick burst of authentic Italian flavour to your cooking. Tomato pastes and passata can be used for more intense flavour. Tinned beans either plain or in sauces are perfect for whipping up a quick meal.
SAUCES The ideal way to add a tasty finish to dishes, Delmaine sauces include classic Mint Jelly and Tomato Sauce, through to Cranberry, Orange & Port Sauce, or Delmaine Manuka BBQ Sauce. Delmaine sauces are packed with real ingredients like whole tomatoes, fresh mint, smoked manuka oil, onion, garlic and herbs.
VINEGARS Good quality vinegars are key to so many dishes – essential in dressings, for adding depth of flavour and in tangy marinades. Delmaine’s range of Italian vinegars are known for their quality and authenticity with all Balsamic products of Modena being fully certified.
FRESH Flavoursome soups, fresh pastas & sauces and pestos are fantastic solutions for easy entertaining and readily available in your supermarket chiller. Delmaine fresh products are made to traditional recipes with quality ingredients, like the authentic 13% egg in all Delmaine fresh pastas or Italian Roma tomatoes used in fresh Pomodoro sauces. Delmaine’s wide range offers something for every palate and occasion.
GRAINS Delmaine’s Organic Wholewheat Couscous and special rices make fantastic bases for a variety of dishes. Recreate the flavours of Spain with Delmaine’s authentic Paella Rice; make a genuine Italian Risotto with Arborio or Carnaroli or a stunning salad with Delmaine’s unique Black Rice.
MUSTARDS Delmaine provide genuine French flavour to these classic condiments in traditional Dijon and Wholegrain flavours. Along with Delmaine’s real crushed Horseradish they are perfect on sandwiches, for serving with ham and beef and in dressings.
CHUTNEYS & RELISHES Serve these alongside cold cuts of meat, on gourmet sandwiches, or with platters of cheeses and crackers. Fresh and flavoursome, they’re a tangy and delicious addition to the table. The Delmaine range includes classic Piccalilli and Tomato Relish, through to the more exotic Mango & Lime, lightly spiced Apple & Date or the dark smoky flavours of Plum and Coriander.
DESSERT TOPPINGS Turn the simplest of desserts into something special with a drizzle of Chocolate, Passionfruit or Caramel Toppings. Delmaine toppings are made the old fashioned way with real ingredients like butter, cocoa and real fruit with no artificial flavours. Ideal over meringues, ice cream and other dessert or just for dipping fruits.
