Home cooked Dishes to Order

Food for all of your Entertaining Occasions

Yes that's right - you can entertain so easily with our help. We can take away all the stress and hassle of giving a party, or special dinner. We can fill your freezer with your favourite foods so you can just relax, put your feet up and not have to cook! Maybe you have an elderly relative who can no longer cook and you want to be sure they have good home cooking in the freezer. Our aim is to provide the perfect foods for your lifestyle. 

Our range of delicious homemade recipes are all prepared freshly to order from the very best seasonal foods - either ready for you to cook in foil containers (with instructions) or ready to reheat (in your own dishes if you wish so you could of course pretend you made it all)! Some dishes can come frozen ready to go straight into your freezer. We hope this choice will suit most occasions, but just ask if you have something else in mind.

(We can help with serving platters, for a small deposit, so there is no need for you to buy unnecessary extras! We can deliver to your door within a 5 mile radius for a small fee. We usually just bring your food ready for you to cook, reheat and serve with our instructions; but for an additional hourly rate we can prep and serve up in your kitchen leaving you nothing to do but sit  back and enjoy just as though you had done it all yourself!)
