The Food Collection is a new concept for Dolci & Delizie. The idea began when someone asked me to prepare some food to share with their family and friends from abroad. After seeing that all were genuinely satisfied with the food and after I was asked to cook more for them, I thought why not?, this might go well as a savoury alternative. So here is what I came up with, food that is freshly prepared, ingredients that are freshly purchased and meals that are great to share with family and friends.

Sweet & Sour Meatballs €25

Delicious bite size meatballs, cooked in a thick, rich sauce. The sweet and the sour merge together giving a slight tangy and distinctive flavour. Ideal to serve as appetizers or part of a buffet. Makes about 40

Ricotta Pie €15

A pie prepared with home made pastry and filled with creamy ricotta, sprinkled with parmigiano and speckled with parsley. Serves 6 to 8

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes & Basil Quiche €13

Fresh, roasted, cherry tomatoes, basil & parmiggiano encapsulated in this delicious quiche that brings out all the summer flavours held in a crispy, buttery pastry case. Serves 6 to 8 

Quiche Lorraine €18

Bacon & cheese spread on the base of a rich, flakey pastry covered with a creamy filling flavoured with nutmeg and topped with more finely grated Gruyere. Can be eaten warm or cold. Serves 6 as part of a meal

Pasta al Forno €20

Baked pasta with a rich tomato and beef sauce, mixed with ricotta, mozzarella and hard boiled eggs. All deliciously covered with a layer of buttery puff pastry. Serves 6

Focaccia €10

This homemade focaccia tastes great on its own or served with a meal or with some appetizers. Crusty on the outside and soft and fresh on the inside. It's best eaten on the same day.
