    Notes;

    • The price includes a fully pre – prepared three course Christmas meal per person from the menu above.
    • Instructions would be included with timings for cooking the main course.
    • For the starter, the smoked salmon terrine and pate would just need plating.  The tart would be cooked in advance but would benefit from being warmed through prior to service.
    • For the main course, the turkey would need roasting according to its weight.  The pigs in blankets would need roasting as would the potatoes and parsnips, both of which would be par-boiled ready for roasting in the duck fat included.  All the vegetables would be prepped ready for boiling.
    • The vegetarian main course pie would be pre-cooked and only need reheating in the oven.
    • For the dessert, the Christmas puddings and brandy sauce would be ready to microwave.  The chocolate torte would be pre portioned, ready to plate.
    • Everything would be delivered in eco-friendly compostable boxes.
    • Delivery included within 25 miles of North Shields.
    • Number are limited, please order ASAP.
    • Yes, I can make Yorkshire puds if you want them!  It seems there is a 50/50 split as to whether they are ‘allowed’ with a Christmas Dinner!  If you want some, I’ll make some big ones.  No extra charge!

    Terms;

    • Orders required by November 30th please.
    • 25% deposit required with all orders.  Balance to be paid before delivery.
    • Deliveries would be made the 23rd and 24th of December.

     

     

  • Individual Prepared Meals

    Individual Prepared Meals

    Following on from the success of the individual microwavable meals during the initial lock down period earlier this year, I have decided to continue to produce them.  I will also continue to offer hand made desserts sold by the portion.

    As before, I will produce them on a Wednesday/Thursday and deliver them on a Friday.  Minimum order value £25 for free delivery within 10 miles of North Shields where my kitchen is.

    I will post the weeks menu on a Sunday and would welcome orders by Monday at 17.00 for me to organise the necessary ordering.
