By the editor /

East at Home were kind enough to send me a sample “meal at home box for 2” to try last week, so although this is not a paid promotion, the box was sent free of charge.

The pandemic has driven home food delivery offerings through the roof and East at Home fits into the relatively new space of fresh cooked food from a restaurant kitchen but delivered chilled for you to finish preparing at home when you are ready. This makes a having a “takeaway” style meal easier to plan as you can take the delivery one day…

Magic Meals from Mandira

By the editor /

We were fortunate enough to receive a sample of some of Mandira’s Kitchen Indian freezer meals last week and having had the chance to try them over the last few days, here’s what we thought. Mandira’s Kitchen, based in Surrey, offer hand made, small batch Indian meals prepared with fresh produce made to family recipes. These are then frozen and delivered to your door ready for eating right away or for storing in your freezer for up to 6 months. We went for the first option and pretty much ate them right away and we were glad we did as overall, they were lovely. Rather than try to write long…

Vegan Chilli Sauces

By the editor /

Another Christmas gift idea has been sent to us and one that will appeal to the Vegan curry lovers in your friends and family. Chilli No 5 describe this as “A revolutionary line of gourmet chilli sauces packed with superfoods”.

Dishoom Recipe Book Review

By the editor

There seems to be a new recipe book published every day at the moment as we all turn ourselves into culinary wizards, or not, depending on your dedication to the kitchen.

Perhaps this is the influence of Bake Off and Master Chef, but either way I have invested in a few of the latest Indian recipe books and will review them over the next few weeks to let you know if, in my opinion, they’re any good or not for the average amateur chef.
