LONDON, June 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
GOURMIO, the new ready-to-cook recipe box from Italy, has signed its first sponsorship deal with Opera Holland Park, which includes up to £200,000 worth of savings on authentic Italian food and wine.
The online retailer, which delivers delicious Italian meals next day nationwide, will also offer the chance to win a luxury opera trip for two to Tuscany.
Gourmio is the first food box to offer the traditional ingredients and recipes of a single country. Its easy-step recipes make it convenient to cook authentic Italian meals using traditional ingredients from the artisans and PDO producers of Italy. Chefs in Italy select speciality ingredients then design regional recipes to recreate at home.
Around 40,000 are set to flock to London's Holland Park during its 10-week opera season, which starts on June 7th. Head of development Felicity Sutherland said: "Opera Holland Park are delighted to be working with Gourmio. Their commitment to excellent authentic Italian food is the perfect accompaniment to our productions of beautiful Italian opera."
Inside 10,000 programmes will be £20 gift vouchers towards recipe box orders at gourmio.co.uk. Opera lovers can also enter Gourmio's fantastic competition to win a luxury trip to Lucca, Tuscany, to see a Puccini opera.
Gourmio founder Marco Sargiani said: "Opera Holland Park has a wonderful season that includes two Italian operas and we are proud to support this special summer event. We hope opera lovers will be as curious about the traditional food of Italy as they are about Italy's finest composers such as Puccini and Rossini."
Boxes contain beautifully packaged ingredients, step-by-step recipe cards and the traditions behind each dish. Choose from a range of starters, main courses and desserts without subscribing, or buy Gourmio's box of the month. In June the 'Mountain & Sea' meal box for £39 takes Italian food lovers on a journey from the Mediterranean to the Alps.
