London’s Flour & Grape launches new DIY pasta kits with expert wine pairings

Flour & Grape, the Bermondsey restaurant famous for its delicious, yet affordable and authentic pasta and wine, has launched Flour & Grape At Home, giving Londoners the chance to recreate their favourite dishes in the comfort of their own home. The move to create an At Home range allows Flour & Grape to stand out even further amongst London pasta purveyors. The restaurants website will be live for pre-orders on Tuesday 28th July 2020.

Perfect for cosy date nights in, dinner parties or for simply savouring the pasta flavours and expertly matched wines from the comfort of a sofa, Flour & Grape is offering a selection of crowd-pleasing pasta dishes, as well as a bespoke selection of antipasti, scrumptious desserts and cocktails. Cocktails include the Bermondsey Grapefruit Americano (£12) and the Nectarine Negroni (£15), which both serve two people. The choice of products is designed to bring restaurant standard freshness and quality straight to every London home.

Each pasta dish can be paired with a specially chosen wine to help elevate the tasting experience. Choices range from a ‘posh Pinot Grigio’ to a delectable and ‘very gulpable’ Catarratto. With only regional Italian wines on the menu, the team at Flour & Grape are truly passionate about serving the best options and strive to feature more unusual choices at a reasonable price in order to make exciting flavours more accessible. The At Home range gives customers the confidence to sample different types of wines alongside their dishes, without breaking the bank.

Pasta dishes to cook up at home in less than ten minutes will be available to collect from the restaurant, or those who live within a five-mile radius of the pasta powerhouse can have it delivered straight to their door. Each kit includes everything needed to create the highest quality dish, including pasta made freshly that day, alongside sauce and parmesan, with step-by-step recipe cards so that lovers of the carb can enjoy hassle free indulgence.

With staying in being the new going out and many consumers still feeling cautious about returning to restaurants, as well as tables at Flour & Grape being like gold dust even on the quietest of days, the team is looking to recreate the tasty and indulgent experience at home. After months of experimenting, the restaurant has perfected the preparation process and have developed clever packaging, allowing the freshest ingredients to be delivered without compromising on taste. Flour & Grape uses only the finest ingredients and produce to ensure the best tasting and freshest flavours each time. Dishes are also affordable as well as delicious, starting from only £7.

Founder and trained chef Nick Crispini commented: “Flour & Grape Pasta At Home has been something we were looking to develop long before lockdown – so it was imperative we got it exactly right rather than rushing to get something over the line. This is very much a long-term shift in our business model rather than a stop-gap response to the pandemic. With many consumers staying in during this time, we are looking to bring the experience of eating out to their door.”

  • Tortelloni (Roasted pork shoulder, sage butter)
