You see, he contacted me, asking if I had ever heard of Ariosto.
I had come accross these gorgeous little pots of Italian herbs in the supermarket but never really given them a second thought.
Never really stopped to consider what would be the best herb combination for a roast or a simple tomato sauce.
Still Salverio susrprised me with a wonderful email stating he had read my blog and could they please send me some samples.
My immediate reaction was of 'yes, please'. Shortly after, this cute little box arrived.
The result was delicious
I served it with Roman Peas, the recipe for which can be found here in Frank Fariello's wonderful blog,.
I replaced the Parma Ham with some smoked pancetta since that's what I had at the time.
They give sauces a whole new depth of flavour!
I will continue to experiment and keep you updated.
Thank you Salverio!!
