Tuscany Bistro, a group of Italian restaurants based in Limerick decided to turn their time during lockdown into something positive, which kick started a new business idea.
Tuscany Bistro has been operating for over 17 years in the suburbs of Limerick, and over 8 years on the beautiful shores of Lough Derg. Food has always been a visceral part Tuscany Bistro owner, Sabrina Amodeo’s life, with two passionate Italian parents who loved to cook and experiment with different styles of food, particularly Italian and Mediterranean dishes.
When Sabrina decided to take the plunge and open her first restaurant, alongside her mother Mamma Maria, they had passion, drive, vision and a massive desire to cook delicious food in a beautiful environment, served by the Tuscany family. Over the last number of years Tuscany has grown into the catering division, the wedding and events industry, branched into their own range of dressings which won a range of Blas na hEireann and Irish Quality Foods awards and now their latest venture, the Tuscany DIY Kits.
Tuscany Bistro’s DIY Kits have been their newest project, post-Covid and they are proving to add a fun and innovative side to the business, it allows the whole team to use their creativity. “Adapting to the new normal has been an interesting experience, but we are learning everyday” says owner Sabrina.
A huge part of this adaption was how we could get Tuscany’s food and drinks to our customers in a safe way, aswell as giving them an experience. The time during lockdown definitely made us realise how precious time was and we thought that our DIY kits would create some fun memories in the kitchen, while enjoying Tuscany’s favourite dishes in an easy way. One box has everything you need, measured out and with a step by step guide on how to make it, as shown here.
Tuscany DIY Kits range from starters, main courses, desserts & cocktails and the list is growing weekly. To view more details about Tuscany Bistro & their DIY Kits head over to their website at www.tuscany.ie and also check out @Tuscany_bistro on Instagram for daily mouth-watering images.
Stay tuned as next week Tuscany Bistro will be giving away 3 cocktail kits to one lucky winner on The Taste!
