nife is life: authentic italian produce to your door.


Stroll down the aisles packed with parmigiano reggiano and brimming with balsamic vinegar, Simply add to your shopping bag and await your Italian treasures. No you're not in a Tuscan deli or a Venetian wine shop, for this is nife is life. From pasta flour to prosciutto, this fantastic Italian delivery service stocks sweet, savoury, fresh and dry ingredients all in one place. 


With an option to shop by region, by brand or category, I picked a selection of ingredients from their online deli counter and food cupboard to create some Italian inspired dishes.


I begun with a classic caprese salad with their buffalo mozzarella and extra virgin olive oil. a mood lifting dish of fresh and familiar flavours.


Later in the week, I enjoyed a prosciutto and rocket salad with a little more of the remaining mozzarella and lashings of sweet and tangy balsamic vinegar.


With such fantastic portion sizes, I still had some mozzarella and ham left over to rustle up some bruschetta with crusty bread. The perfect starter to an Italian inspired Friday night supper with some crisp pinot grigio.


For main, I made some homemade ravioli filled with spinach and ricotta and served with sage butter. Although you can also shop their brilliant selection of Italian made pasta and ravioli, Which is frozen and shipped over. 



I also ordered some premium tinned mackerel and tuna for future recipes so watch this space. Any ideas of what to make? 


If you're in selected areas of London you can also order fresh fish online, Although sadly i'm in the Midlands and couldn't try this out. do let me know if you do!

Feeling inspired? Head over to nife is life to see what flavours of Italy you can find... and you don't even have to go to an airport.

Note: I was asked to select a variety of complimentary products for review. All opinions are honest and my own.

    1. Hehe I couldn't agree more! Their mozzarella is absolutely incredible so if you order anything make it that! Also Pinot is hands down the best white! xx

  3. Italian food is wonderful. I love how simple it is, they really let their ingredients do the talking. I'd have the tuna on a salad or maybe with pasta?
