Fine Dining Delivered

I discovered Taste Telford on Twitter and I was immediately drawn to the simplicity of the business. Restaurant quality meals with locally sourced fresh ingredients prepared and delivered to you door, all you need to do is cook it.

It's barely cooking, I just had to pop the food in the oven for 20 minutes. With all the prep work done for you Taste Telford a la carte boxes make entertaining effortless, which is great if you've had a busy day and don't have time to create something special for your guests. 

The Shropshire based start up in still in it's infancy but there is plenty of interest and they are already delivering in Shrewsbury. Taste are seamlessly integrating social media with the boxes too and they'll soon be adding QR codes to the dishes that will link to their YouTube channel with cooking demonstrations.

Taste gave me an a la carte box so I could write this review and I loved it. I chose duck breast marinated in ginger and rosemary, chateau potatoes, cranberry and rosemary jus and vibrant spring greens. All the components of the dish were packaged separately and clearly labelled. There was even butter provided for the spring greens.

I was salivating just picking out the meal and could hardly wait for it to be delivered. The very large duck breast was tender and juicy, the scored skin crisped up beautifully in the oven. The fragrant chateau potatoes and rich jus bejewelled with cranberries brought the whole dish together. It was definitely restaurant quality fine dining but in comfort of my own home.

If you're short on time or cooking skills and looking to impress your guests, I'd recommend the “a la carte in a box” from Taste Telford. Select your menu from a seasonal selection and the Taste will team prepare it and deliver it to your door.

The a la carte in a box usually retails at £40 for two people, we have a special Love Shrewsbury reader offer for July 2013, you can try a box for just £35 using the code TST102 when you order.
