To make choosing the perfect gift easier for you, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite Eatalian products, experiences and foodie treats for every kind of father figure in your life.
The Wine Aficionado
With the UK’s largest selection of Italian wines in store (over 2,000 labels) your dad is spoilt for choice. Pick from our collection of red, white, orange and organic wines from different regions of Italy. We also have vintages and sparkling wines! For the king of the house, it’s only appropriate to gift him Barolo, “the king of wines”. Barolo is the most prestigious expression of the Nebbiolo grape hailing from a village of the same name located in the region of Piemonte.
The Pasta Lover
A special tool for all the dads who like to cook, or eat, pasta! He’ll be making perfectly formed ravioli and fresh tortellini like a pro in no time. We have the Marcato Atlas 150 available to buy in store, which is the most popular machine to make fresh home-made pasta. With the Atlas 150 you can easily make lasagne, fettuccine, tagliolini and 12 other pasta shapes thanks to the wide range of accessories.
Does your dad love cooking (or need to refresh his skills)? Book him a class at La Scuola and he’ll learn how to make fresh pasta, cook Italian regional dishes, pronounce “bruschetta” like a true Italian, taste the difference between extra virgin olive oil from Toscana or Sicilia and much more… he’ll soon be cooking like a real cuoco italiano.
The Beer Boffin
If there’s one thing dads know, it’s beer and if your beer loving dad hasn’t tried Italian craft beer yet, he’s in for a treat with a magnum of Isaac beer. Isaac is the first Italian craft blanche and, to this day, it is taken as a reference within its style. When sipped, it releases a taste of cereals and citrus fruits, which mix and blend creating a delicate flowery and spicy balance. The finish is slightly herbaceous and leaves a faint, yet tantalizing peppery note in the mouth.
For a true meat lover, you can shop our range of ethically farmed and sustainably sourced meat at La Macelleria. As an extra special treat, we suggest Wagyu Giò Porro Bresaola which is produced from the tip of the hip of prized Wagyu cattle. Bresaola is a hand-crafted salume inspired by the Italian delicacy Bresaola della Valtellina seasoned with herbs and spices.
The Cheese Lover
Make him say cheese with something from our formaggi counter. You can have your produce cut to order at our counter or pick up freshly-sliced varieties in our modified-atmosphere packaging that guarantees freshness and flavour. Give a gift with a story with a cheese from Fiordimaso, which comes from the foot of the Alps north-west of Venice. Fiordimaso reflects the lively, daring and adventurous spirit characteristic of Italy and its people. San Pio X is a matured cheese, perfect to suit all tastes. During seasoning, it develops an intense flavour characterised by harmonious notes.
