With the logistical nightmare of testing and the ever- changing traffic light system to navigate, holidays abroad have been put on the backburner for many Brits this year. And we don’t blame them. And anyway, our own glorious shores have so much to offer. It might be a bit rainy but it’s stress-free and let’s face it, our country boasts some spectacular beauty. Whether you’re headed to a luxury coastal retreat, a hillside lodge or a glamping site amidst cows and sheep, you’re on trend. The staycation is so 2021.
The Quattro family, like everyone, is in desperate need of a break. So, as we pack up the roof rack and dust off our walking boots, what do you think is at the forefront of our staycation planning? You guessed it – food!
We’ve been preoccupied with the prospect of breakfast, lunch and dinner, but it will be worth the intensive planning, shopping and packing, when we present our carefully curated holiday feasts.
And sharing is caring, so here are some ideas for feeding family and friends on the culinary staycation of your life. Let’s hit the road!
The most important meal of the day, they say, and who are we to argue? Starting the day Quattro style involves a variety of different and delicious porridge options including gluten and dairy free, and a mouth-watering coconut and seed porridge topped with forest fruit compote. Our take on the traditional farmhouse staple is loved by all. It ticks every box. Tasty? Yes, absolutely. Healthy and wholesome? Indeed. Our quintessentially Quattro quinoa porridge, oat milk porridge and coconut milk porridge are three of our newest breakfast options to suit the varied needs and dietary requirements of all our customers, and of course, our discerning families. Created in Quattro’s state-of-the-art nut-free kitchen, our new porridge choices are healthy, wholesome and delicious, especially served piping hot with a drizzle of honey or a spoonful of fruit, jam or maple syrup.
How about green tomato sauce for eggs to make a green shakshuka? And don’t forget to pack a selection of our fruity chutneys to accompany your morning bread. We make breakfast truly worth waking up for!
We recommend stocking up on pasta. It’s the easiest crowd pleaser whether you’re in a tent or a holiday rental and it’s so versatile. Simply add any of Quattro’s delicious sauces and behold – an Italian feast fit for a king.
Here are some of Quattro’s delicious summer pasta sauces:
- Red nut-free pesto
- Green nut-free pesto
- Ham hock & pancetta carbonara
- Cherry tomato & basil
- Tuscan sausage ragu
- Spicy meatball sauce
After a day of walking, swimming, shopping, fishing, running – whatever your holiday passions – everyone is starving. ‘What’s for dinner?’ is the common cry up and down the country, and we can help. We love experimenting with food ideas from far-flung places, and you may be craving something more exotic than fish and chips, to remind you of all the amazing places that you have not visited this year. In which case, try our delectable range of Middle Eastern sauces and soups, and bring on the spice with our popular range of curries.
Soup is the ideal food item to take on hols. Filling, delicious and healthy. Choose from:
- Gorgonzola & broccoli
- Smokey aubergine
- Tomato & basil
- Super greens
- Chunky wild mushroom
- Thai red lentil & vegetable
- Lentil & herb
- Sweet potato, coconut & chilli
- Carrot & butternut
- Vegan minestrone verde
Make it a staycation to remember with Quattro!
