Nearly $ 5,000 worth of Italian pantry staples (and pasta party shortcuts) to celebrate King & Godfree’s 150th anniversary

We all dream of the world around us, get together with friends and family and finally have a dinner party again – after months of meals that are only for households. King & Godfree will help make it a reality by giving a lucky one Broadsheet read everything they need to hold a great pasta party or two (or three or lots).

Refresh your pasta shops with 30 kilos of dried penne, spaghetti, fusilli, rigatoni and fettuccine; cans of San Marzano tomatoes; bottles of passata and sugo; degrassi mushroom paste and vodka pasta sauce. King & Godfree’s ready-made sauces (bolognese, napoli and pesto), gnocchi, a ready-to-heat lasagne and Agostino takeaway pastas are also included.

Also included are pantry staples in the form of Mount Zero Olives organic olive oil, olives and lentils; Leonardi Oro Nobile eddike; 64 cans of Sirena tuna; and smoked almonds. Well enough, there are tubs from King & Godfree’s sibling gelateria Pidapip√≥ that drink chocolate from Grounded Pleasures, gingerbread dark chocolate from Monsieur Truffle and a wealth of Italian chocolates.

The main event, however, may be the wines: There are seven boxes – equivalent to as many as 84 bottles – of Dal Zotto Pucino Prosecco, Hesketh Regional Selection Fiano, Head Wines Montepulciano, Aquilani Pinot Grigio, Tar & Roses Sangiovese and many others.

The epic giveaway is part of King & Godfree’s 150th anniversary, a six-month celebration starting next week with a pasta masterclass hosted by Julia Busuttil Nishimura.

The heritage corner store on Lygon and Faraday Streets has served as a grocery store since 1871 during the Victorian gold rush. Edwin King and George Godfree established the company in 1884, before Carlo Valmorbida bought the corner store in 1955 and turned it into a maze of shelves stacked with bottles of wine and Italian goods such as Lavazza coffee, Sirena tuna and staples such as Parmigiano-reggiano. His grandchildren Luca Sbardella and Jamie Valmorbida run it to this day, now with an espresso bar, delicatessen, grocery store, wine bar and rooftop terrace.
