January happens to be National Sunday Supper Month. For traditionalists, Sunday supper usually means one thing – a hearty, robust family meal of roast beef and potatoes swimming in a rich, velvety gravy. If you’re British, Sunday supper might even be ingrained in your national identity. In fact, in a 2012 poll in the UK, people rated roast dinner as their second favourite thing about Britain. (Incidentally, a bacon sandwich landed the top spot.)
While we might be inclined to change up the menu now and then, maybe even ordering in when we’re too tired to cook, the spirit of Sunday supper remains the same – a time to slow down after a busy week and enjoy a cozy meal with family and friends. So, haul out that Dutch oven, gather your peeps around the table and let’s reignite this lost tradition.
So you’re not the cooking type and you only read Savour Calgary for the restaurant reviews? We’ve got you. Enjoy Sunday supper the easy way by joining the pasta club at Calgary’s local eatery, Pasta La Mano. You’ll receive a fresh handmade pasta dish created by a different Calgary chef every month with your choice of home delivery or local pick-up. What’s included? Uncooked fresh pasta, a feature sauce, garnishes and optional wine pairings selected by a professional sommelier to complement each dish. The dish serves two and instructions are conveniently taped to the packaging. We tried the handmade rigatoni in a silky smooth vodka sauce with creamy burrata and fresh basil. All we can say is, a-maze-ing! Pasta club memberships also make a unique gift.
