Well, dishes like lamb and apricot tagine; pork and fennel ragout; and Spanish chicken, chorizo and butter beans are available nationwide and come in compostable bowls made from responsibly sourced plant-based materials.

The menu is seasonal, handcrafted and balanced, offering a wide variety of flavorful dishes ready to cook or freeze with free nationwide delivery.
