When the weather outside is frightful, there's nothing better than cozying up at home with something tasty and delightful... those are the lyrics right? OK, we'll save the caroling for the professionals and the eating for us. Enter: PORTA, comforting traditional Italian food delivered right to your door.

Calm holiday chaos with their new chef-curated winter menu. This latest addition features three new pizzas and pastas, inspired by Italy's various regions, with a variety of seasonal and imported ingredients like fragrant speck and prosciutto cotto. We're still dreaming about the Domenico pizza with rapini and spicy Calabrese sausage, and the Cremona pasta — freshly made rigatoni served in a luscious quattro formaggi (four cheese) sauce. 

With the addition of three premium risotto dishes to their limited edition winter menu, you'll never want to leave your house again... well, only to bring your PORTA box inside. The risottos are rich yet simple, and made with Acquerello Rice imported from Italy — a chef favourite that requires less stirring and a shorter cooking time. From the delicate Milano with vibrant saffron to the satisfying Bassano with porcini mushrooms, each risotto is pure perfection and will grant you nice-list status when you whip one up for dinner.

Plus, PORTA's service lets you create your own box with 6, 9, or 15 items, and schedule weekly, bi-weekly or monthly deliveries that reach all over Ontario. Plans are flexible and can be paused, skipped or stopped at any time. Can’t decide which dishes to choose? PORTA chefs have also curated the perfect boxes with an assortment of products.

While it's the "most wonderful time of the year," it's by far the busiest. In between shopping, social events and dinner parties with your in-laws, there's hardly enough time to enjoy a silent night, let alone a homey meal. With PORTA, you can find time to savour small moments and big flavours. Buon Appetito!
