We got such a treat in February as Chef Trevor Jerram from a start-up pasta-delivery service Pasta Fresca made contact inviting us to try his “assemble-at-home” pasta kits delivered fresh every Thursday. Born and raised in Calgary, Jerram graduated from SAIT’s culinary program before heading overseas to hone his craft. Now back in Calgary, he’s taken his passion for pasta and created restaurant-quality kits with fresh-made pasta and delicious, seasonal sauces. We tried the cavatelli with crumbled fennel sausage, cavela niro (Italian kale), white wine, black pepper butter which absolutely delighted. The difference fresh pasta makes is immeasurable and it was cooked and on our plates in under 15 minutes. We also had the rigatoni with slow-braised beef shin and red wine ragu, rosemary and parmesan – another hit.
Pasta Fresca delivers to all Calgary postal codes every Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Cut-off for orders is Tuesday at midnight and delivery is free for orders $25 and over.
