Batch + Deliver

The times we all find ourselves in are very sad. Rather than continue to be downhearted about postponing the children's cookery school I have worked so hard to launch in April, I would like to help those in the community instead.

I am batch cooking meals and freezing in single portions and double. These are available to all vulnerable residents and NHS staff of Woodbridge, Suffolk, and anyone who is willing to collect. 

All I ask is a £2 donation to cover the cost of ingredients, packaging and cooking costs. If you would like to donate more than £2 I would be incredibly grateful and this profit will be split between a local charity supporting vulnerable people and the cookery school start-up fund. 

(Gnocchi prices are different due to intense labour, please see the menu for further information).

All you need to do is fill in the form below and I will be in touch to arrange safe and sanitised delivery, leaving on your doorstep. 

Payment may be cash left on the doorstep in an envelope, PayPal or I do have the means for contactless payment should you not be in isolation but practicing social distancing. 

How to reheat the dishes:

Curry + Soup:

Defrost for a minimum of 12 hours in the fridge, then decanter into a microwave safe container if delivered in foil packaging and heat on full power for 1.5 minutes. Stir and heat for 1 minute. Ensure it is piping hot before serving.

You may also reheat in the pan.

(N.B. the curry will likely split due to cream/coconut milk, do not worry as this will come back together to make a delicious dish). 

Tartiflette (cook from frozen):

Remove cardboard lid and place in the oven from frozen at 160C for 35-40 minutes. Ensure it is piping hot throughout.

Dishes currently cooked and ready for delivery:

Tartiflette, made with Camembert, pancetta, potatoes + shallots in a creamy white wine sauce. Double and single portions

Vegan shepherd's pie. Single portions

Spiced carrot + roasted aubergine soup (gf, vegan) Single portions

"Fresh Sauce Co." King prawn + potato katsu curry (gf, df) Single portions

All dishes, unless stated, are nut free however I cannot guarantee they are free from traces of nuts. Availability of dishes may be subject to change dependent on demand.

If you would simply like to leave a donation to donate meals to NHS staff, you can do so by using the PayPal address Please use a reference to acknowledge the donation so it is not confused for an order.
