Bonjour lecteurs! You may be aware by now that Baba is a bit of a gourmet. He likes good food as he is half Frenchie and he is always after new fab meals! As Piccolo Introduces Piccolo Pots for toddlers like Baba, we thought we might share with you the little party we were invited recently to celebrate it!
Pasta Making Workshop
To celebrate the launch of new the Piccolo Pots of Mediterranean Goodness, we were invited to a traditional pasta making workshop in London.
It was so much fun! Situated at Burro e Salvia in Shoreditch, we started the event with some Italian coffee before Frenchie Mummy got her hands dirty and she was very proud to produce some good pasta!
Surprise surprise, it is actually not that difficile!
- Mix up all the ingredients together and you make a nice dough of it
- Drink a bit of Prosecco (Ok! I did drink more than a little bit!)
- Make the dough as thin as possible
- Choose the shape of pasta you want
- Et voilà! Our Butterflies are ready to be eaten!
Later on in the evening, Baba had a feast with my (so proudly!) made Fresh pasta!
Once again, Frenchie Mummy was acting as a grand chef in the kitchen! And making some cool Italian food!
Not feeling like you want to do that every single day to make sure your little one has some healthy food? Pas de problème! Piccolo is here to help with its new pots of Mediterranean goodness!
Piccolo Introduces Piccolo Pots
Finding some healthy substitute for your little one when you can’t cook yourself is not that complicated anymore! Do you have a fussy eater at home? Then, try some Piccolo Pots! It’s the first ever split pot baby food in the world.
Suitable for Stage 3 and above, Picollo Pots are a delicious range of meals based around textured grains with some vegetables!
The pots are split so that the nutrients are kept and the grains preserve their texture.
What do we like about them? They remind us of our childhood with some great Mediterranean recipes. Baba loves the Quinoa with Vegetable Ratatouille. The pinch of Basil gives it such a good taste! Plus, offering texture to babies can help with many forms of development. Exit the boring baby purée! Let’s have fun while we eat!
But Frenchie Mummy has some idées for the brand to develop later on: Niçoise Salade and Scallops à la Provencal. Some healthy Frenchie food here! Or the brand’s next recipe could include some Camembert and onions peut-être? I reckon that Cat Gazolli, the Picollo’s founder would be totally on board with this! I actually had a word with her when we met up at the pasta making workshop!
Watch out for some French inspiration in the next recipes! 🙂
In the meantime, try the Picollo Pots now available from all good supermarkets. Your little one will say merci for this!
