Recipe: Basil Linguini With Duck Ragu

In our Farm Shop, you’ll find lots of flavoursome ingredients that are perfect for making effortless, delicious dishes at home. Follow our recipe ideas below for entertaining made easy.

We love our Italian Suppliers Danilo and Alison Trozzi – Italian chefs who trained in Italy and now live in England. They founded Just So Italian in 2008 and often tour Italy from North to South searching for new and exciting products which taste fantastic and have a fabulous story behind them. Our ‘Italian Table’ is bursting to the seams with artisan cooking oils, balsamic vinegars, handmade pasta, antipasto and delicious pasta sauces with a twist.

If you need to create a last minute supper for friends, our Executive Head Chef has whipped up some quick and easy recipes for you to try at home. They’re so simple and taste amazing and can be created using ingredients from the shop.
