PROUD TO SUPPORT NEW ZEALAND MADE

Kia Ora Dante's Fans,  Well, what a whirlwind couple of weeks it has been. We are so pleased to be open again and to have customers back in-store with us. It has been a trying few months for as all but one thing that hasn't changed is our desire for good quality ingredients. When I took over the shop from the previous owner 3 years ago, I have to say that one of the things I had envisioned was to bring in a few more New Zealand based products to showcase just how far we hav...

May Means Mothers Day...

Kia Ora Dante's Fans,  So with everything that has been going on lately, it's hard to tell what day, week or month it is sometimes.  So just in case you didn't know, Mother's Day is Sunday the 10th of May.... Yep, thats only one week away!  This year it may be a little harder to think about what to get your Mum, Mother-in-law, Wife, Partner or just that special person who has acted as a Mother in your life. But don't worry, here at Dante's Fine F...

We are Opening...

Kia Ora Dante's Fans,  There is no doubt that this has been a long and difficult five weeks for us all as we've been navigating through the Level 4 Lockdown. Under Level 4 - Dante's Fine Foods did meet the criteria of being an Essential Service Provider. However, as a small locally owned business and as a Widowed Mum of 3 young children, I made a very conscious decision to close our doors and only operate our online services. I'm sure many of you can appre...

Did someone say Cranberry?..

Cranberries Westland is a small cranberry farm on the Old Christchurch Road near Hokitika.  They have about 3 acres planted in cranberries. Cranberries take about 5 years to get from planting to full fruiting in the Hokitika climate so they’re continuing to prepare beds and plant cranberries annually.  Cranberries Westland supply fresh and processed cranberry products locally and nationally. They are the only commercial cranberry farmers in New Zealand. We have 4 products in store no...

Change of Guard

Hi Dante's Fans... Firstly, I'd like to apologise for the very belated blog!..  If you haven't heard already, 1st June 2017 Dante's Fine Foods changed hands when Vicki decided to sell her business to myself Kelly Mita-Skeet. For some of you it would have come as a big surprise to see a new face behind the counter. But rest assured that Vicki is never too far away from Dante's and no doubt you may still be able to catch up with her in the shop, however she will be on the other side of the co...

These scrumptious treats are paleo, raw, gluten free, soy free, vegan and they do not contain any cane sugar = The Perfect Gift For Mum!! Finally a treat that can be enjoyed guilt free. My personal favourites are 'Vanilla & Almond' & 'Passionfruit'. Don't take my word for it, come and try yourself!...

FRESH AORAKI SALMON EVERY THURSDAY!

My very favourite food is FRESH salmon, and I really lay the emphasis on the word 'fresh', because as we all know fish simply tastes better fresh, we receive our salmon in every Thursday, delivered to us overnight, it doesn't get much fresher than that! And then there are some other reasons why Aoraki salmon tastes soo good! Aoraki salmon is grown in the constantly flowing, crystal clear, icy cold glacier waters. This natural, spacious and pristine environment helps produce the best fresh wat...

YESSSS!! WE STOCK POMEGRANATE MOLASSES

Yay! We have finally received our pomegranate molasses back in stock, this has been one of our most demanded product, it seems to be a favourite in many recipes at the moment! Pomegranate Molasses is simply pomegranate juice reduced to a thick intensely flavoured syrup. I love it's tangy-ness, lack of sweetness and it's ability to add a depth of flavour to many dishes. Don't despair if you purchased a bottle used it in one dish and now you just see it sitting there in your pantry. It has soo m...

VEGETARIAN SAUSAGES, ANYONE??

There is one question I seem to be asked over and over again - "Do you stock vegetarian sausages?" This is always a tricky question for me to answer, because I love meat and for me meat is part of a balanced and nutritious diet! I finally got sick of saying 'no' and thanks to my customers I found a brand called "Food Garden". Carol (the owner) makes amazingly delicious sausages, rissoles and mince meat, that are vegetarian and gluten free! I have even got a customer who is by no means a vegetar...

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A YUMMY & HEALTHY SNACK?

At Dante's we are always looking for something extremely yummy to start with, but then it also needs to be a little bit different and it also needs to be healthy! So we are continuously looking and trying different products, and I think with this new range coming from South America we have ticked all three boxes. There are mixed packets of roasted broad beans, native corn and giant corn. There are packets just with roasted native corn, grown in Peru, this corn has quite a soft texture and is e...

Chocolate for Father's Day?

A question I never know exactly how to answer, what does one buy as a gift for a man? Please remember the following ideas are coming from me as a woman! I think that men are starting to enjoy their cooking more and more and many of my customers interested in all the different sauces and condiments are the men folk. They also seem to love fancy sauces to go with meats, burgers, bbq's, on pizza bases or on burgers. This could be the perfect gift! We have Glasseye Creek - Wild Meat Sauce - great...

Cheese, cheese and more cheese!

I have just spent a month overseas and you know what? I think the Dutch make the nicest cheeses in the world, well in my opinion anyway. Isn't it lucky that we import and sell these in our shop in Cambridge? Whether it is the sweet, nutty and creamy Maasdam with it's huge holes, the tangy white Goat cheese or the ever so creamy Gouda style cheese flavoured with garlic, chives and paprika, we have got it all! Ahh.. it is good to be home!...

DUTCH KROKETTEN AND FRIKANDELLEN

Gosh! We were busy yesterday receiving our frozen Dutch croquettes and frikadels! Cartons of them all needed to be stacked neatly across the three freezers we have out the back of our shop. As I was stacking them I had to fondly think back to growing up in the Netherlands where our 'fish and chips' nights are 'croquettes & frikandels with chips nights'. 'Croquettes' are traditionally a creamy beef filling crumbed and deep fried... a yummy and maybe a little bit naughty winter treat! And a...
