Bottega Mediterranea - For Imported Gourmet Goodies!

A couple of weeks ago, we received an email from Bottega Mediterranea asking if we would like to try out their home delivery service. We said YES and they sent over a box of imported gourmet goodies for us to sample.

Bottega Mediterranea opened its doors to the Malaysian market on the 1st of June 2011. They import fresh products and authentic ingredients from all over the Italian Peninsula with shipments arriving every 7 - 10 days. They have a deli and shop at Jalan Ceylon, KL, and now they also offer home delivery service.

All you need to do is place your orders for the goods, at least 1 day in advance and they will deliver it to your nominated address (free delivery for orders above RM100 in Klang Valley).  You can check out the full list of products here, which include cheese and dairy, dry goods, wine, cured meat and meat. Orders can be done online through their website, or via email or phone call to the office.

The products arrived at the requested delivery time, packed neatly in a cardboard box. The cold cuts and cheeses were vacuumed pack for hygiene and were placed in a bag with ice pack to keep them fresh during transit.

We did a couple of Italian themed dinner nights, and our family enjoyed it very much. On both evenings, we put together a cold cut platter, featuring porchetta, mortadella, salami fillano, salami Milano, beef bresaola and my favorite, Parma ham - cured for 22 months (RM17.44 per 100g) :) These cold cuts are good eaten on its own, and we also tried making an antipasto using the bresaola as well as some marinated artichokes.

Bottega also supplied us with 6 types of cheese - Parmigiano Reggiano, Gorgonzola, Tallegio, Fontina, Asiago as well as Burrata (RM15.30). I was super excited to see Burrata on the list, as it is one cheese we cannot find at the supermarkets here.

Some other goodies: grissini, orange soda, Italian giant green olives, marinated artichokes, grilled pepper, sun dried tomatoes, taralli, gnocchi, fusilletti, and penne

Our favorite product of them all is the white truffle butter (RM31.80 for 75g). The aroma is simply amazing, and it is fair to say that this is our current favorite butter :)

 Here are some other dishes which we made in our kitchen - fusilletti with pesto and Parma ham (recipe link here), and squid ink pasta with prawns and truffle butter (recipe link here).

Opening times: Mon-Fri 10am-8pm, Sat 10am-6pm. Closed on Sun.

  1. We love Italian cured meat, especially Mr. Mah. But no easy to find good one. I think I would enjoy the white truffle butter very much too. :D
