Food: Black Dog Delicatessen

Check out the cute labrador packaging on the risotto!

During my ongoing quest for unique and delicious food, I came across this beautifully packaged Black Dog Delicatessen range. There are 17 items in the range - 5 pastas, 4 risotto mixes (for people like me who are useless when it comes to risotto!), 5 spiced olives, balsamic vinegar and 2 extra virgin olive oils.

The range is part of the FoodHQ own brand selection, taking inspiration from across the world and selecting the high quality ingredients but at great value prices.

It's all in the name, too...and the best thing about these delicious products is that a percentage of the proceeds from every sale will go to support The Labrador Rescue Trust, where the company owner's labradors Blue and Bailey came from as rescues. How cute!!!!

The products I had have lasted me months and I am still using the balsamic vinegar. It's got a delicious kick to it and is perfect for side salads, especially with a good steak. It comes from Italy and is aged in wooden barrels for ten years according to local traditions...and you can certainly taste the quality. The ageing gives the vinegar its sweet, mellow taste and glossy, dark colour.

The olives are huge and juicy, flavoursome and come in a large jar. The tomato risotto was really easy to make, and the already added flavours made it a lot quicker - perfect for after a late night at work when I want to make a quick dish.

They have an extensive range of products including pasta and more olive flavours, and even a lovely hamper that is only £45 - perfect gift for your foodie friends! Most hampers are £60-£200 so I was surprised how reasonably priced this one is, considering how much product is included.

You can buy all the Black Dog Deli products on the FoodHQ website
