When September comes

When September comes

September 04, 2015

 

August may not have been the heatwave we were all hoping for but Autumn waits for no man, those crisp evenings are drawing ever closer and all the colours of this new season are almost upon us.  Now that the holidays are over and the new school year has started, here at Limoncello we decided it's the right time to relaunch the blog. And we’re hoping you’ll want to be part of it. 

We want to know what it is you would most like to see on these posts.  Whether that be recipes, events, classes or local news. You might just fancy a nose at what we’ve been up to or want early notice of when the latest, unique ingredients are ready for you to taste and discover. Maybe you’ve got questions you want answered about Italian cuisine, whatever it is, we’re all orecchie (ears).

Drop us a comment here or over on our Facebook and Twitter sites.  We also have great plans for new Instagram and Pinterest pages that you can ponder over, follow and find out all about Limoncello. 

We can’t wait to hear from you.

What Do You Know About Limoncello?
What Do You Know About Limoncello?

May 06, 2016

 

So we're called Limoncello and we sell Limoncello. But just how much do you know about this highly quaffable tipple? Here's our top 5 Interesting facts about the drink itself:

1. Limoncello is one of the most popular liqueurs in Italy.
2. Limoncello has been around for at least a century, but its precise origins are unclear. One story has the fishermen and farmers preparing their own versions. Another has friars making it in their monasteries… Do you ever wonder if any of the friars ever minded making all this alcohol but not supping it?
3. Limoncello is made from lemon zest as well as the flesh. The zest is steeped in alcohol until the oil is released which gives the drink its vibrant colour.
4. Were you so include you could make it yourself, here’s a relatively easy recipe from Nigella Lawson
5. If you can’t be bothered with the faff of making your own, come along to Limoncello Deli between 7th – 22nd May. As a fringe event for Eat Cambridge we are giving 3 samples for a highly discounted price!

Cambridge and Mill Road in particular is well known for its food scene.  We so enjoy watching our customers pop in for pizza and nibbles during Italian evening or serving you guys coffees and pastries on a weekend morning.  While we have always offered samples and tastings, festivals are fast becoming a standard way for other business owners to get their wares tried out.  This year we’re taking part in three such events coming up over 2016.  When are they you say?  Well isn't that a coincidence, I was just about to tell you!

 

Eat Cambridge 7th -22nd May

A highlight of the foodie calendar, the aforementioned Eat Cambridge Food and Drink festival will be enjoying its third successful year this May. We love that Cambridge caters so well to the foodies here and Heidi White, Organiser of Eat Cambridge agrees saying ‘We have such a fantastic indie food and drink scene here in Cambridge’.  She continues ‘I'm thrilled to be releasing another amazing line-up of festival events and it’s great to see so many local independents getting involved.’ With fringe events, workshops and more wonderful things to try then you could handle, you’ll kick yourself if you miss out on this two week bonanza!  Heidi confirms ‘I'm always pleased to see the city's steadfast favourites, like Limoncello, getting on board’.  We’re looking forward to it as well!
