This was yet another amazing dining experience enjoyed in the comfort of our own home. A couple of months ago we ordered Core at Home for the first time and it was absolutely fabulous. This led us to want to order it again and to no surprise it was equally as memorable. The menu this time was very much dedicated to spring as the courses included turbot and chicken as well as the famous potato dish. We received our video of Clare on the friday which guides you through the cooking and plating of each dish on the menu.

We had hoped by now to have visited the Princess of Shoreditch where Ruth is the head chef but due to the ongoing Covid situation that we’re in this has not been possible. So therefore we was delighted when she had joined Finish & Feast and created a delightful three course Cook at Home menu. With delight we headed straight away to their website and placed an order. This was also to be our first time using Finish & Feast so was also interested to see if they were as good as other delivery services that we’ve used. I’m now pleased to say that despite a slight delay with the delivery which with great customer service was sorted immediately they were. The parcel arrived on the friday in good condition and inside the packaging was excellent.

This has to be one of the best takeaways I’ve had in a long time. It all came about when a leaflet came through the door and let’s be honest most of the time we just throw them away. But this one caught my eye. Firstly because the food was of a different style to anything locally. Secondly was that the chef Megha Arora had a background of working in Michelin Star restaurants around the world. Finally it was great that they were also only a five minute drive away.

Roast Lamb at Haywards

This was another fabulous takeaway Sunday roast from my good friends at Haywards restaurant in Epping. On this occasion the roast was Lamb Rump , Braised Lamb Shoulder with carrots , cabbage & roast potatoes. Once we got it home it just had to be warmed through in the microwave or oven and if you stick to the instructions provided the result is a delight

We first tried Hame by Adam Handling on Boxing Day and the experience was so amazing we simply couldn’t wait to try them again. So with this we took a look at the menu and decided on to order three courses. These were the signature Mother dish , truffle stuffed chicken & the tarte tatin. Just as our previous experience the communication and delivery service was excellent with the package arriving on the friday in the time frame provided. We opened the package and to our surprise there was a couple of extra complimentary treats for us including the nanny sophie’s fried chicken.

This month’s selection of mouthwatering desserts is all down to fabulous restaurants and their takeaway and Cook at Home services. Each dish is simply designed to be removed from the fridge and plated. So until the Hospitality Industry opens up again why not treat yourself to restaurant quality desserts in your own home.

If your a meat lover then the All In from Blacklock Chops is perfect for you. The beef rump as well as the pork & lamb skinny chops are amazing. It also comes with flatbread , beef dripping chips , kale & parmesan salad , chop sauce and then if that’s not enough a fabulous white chocolate cheesecake to finish. All this is priced including delivery at £56 for two people and definitely something I would highly recommend. Your delivery comes on a friday and unless your having it that day it should be put in the fridge. This will keep everything fresh but must still be consumed within two days. So it came to saturday and we laid everything thing out in preparation.

This was a fantastic way to continue my support for my great friends at Haywards Restaurant in Epping. On this occasion they were offering a special Luxury Hamper full of afternoon tea goodies that was perfect for Valentines Day. There was also an opportunity to purchase a fabulous bouquet of flowers from the Botanical Shed to complete a delightful romantic experience. It came filled with a bottle of sparkling rose wine , a selection of finger sandwiches , plain & sultana scones , victoria sponge loaf cake , homemade chocolates & chocolate dipped strawberries.

We were looking to start Valentines weekend of nicely so therefore couldn’t have been more pleased when we saw that one of our favourite local restaurants Da Vinci’s were offering a Valentines Menu. This was priced at £75 for three courses and which also included a bottle of sparkling wine. It was also great that it wasn’t a set menu giving you the opportunity to choose your own dishes. This was from a selection of 3 starters , 4 mains and 3 desserts. After we placed our order we received a call from owner Craig who took our payment and then discussed our delivery time.
