The very best of things

This is not my story. This is a story that one of our lovely, long time customers shared with me the other day. Last Saturday, they ordered a cheese & antipasto box, along with a bunch of dinners, which we delivered to them. There was no particular occasion. They just decided to have a special night in.

And so, this family dressed in their finery, listened to music, chatted, ate a delicious meal and enjoyed being together. It lifted their spirits, as they celebrated the near-end of the school term, and the joys that can be found in hanging out with the same group of people day after day.

We know that occasions are not made by the food you eat (although we may dispute that from time to time!) They are made by the people you share that food with. This, it seems to me, is the very best of life in lockdown. Happily, this won't change once restrictions are lifted.

From this week, we can gather in outdoor groups of 5 fully vaccinated adults. If you would like a box to picnic with, get in touch (you can replay to this email). We'd love to put together something special just for you and your new found freedoms.

We exist to care for you through really good food, changing your daily life for the better. And we love to hear your stories of how you've been able to gather with your people: either those you live with, or virtually. Whether it's a break from the daily dinner grind, or a special occasion, it is our pleasure to cook for you.

Order online for delivery across Sydney, Melbourne & regional NSW, ACT & VIC within 3-5days (depending on where you live). Choose your preferred delivery day and time slot: $15 for metro areas, $18 for regional and rural. If there is something we can do to serve you and your family, please don't hesitate to ask.
