As much as we’d love to think we’re Nigella-ing it in the kitchen every night, we’re not. Five months into being overly reacquainted with our ovens, quite frankly, some nights we’re keen to take a night off from cooking duties.
If a takeaway every night is out of the question for both your health and your bank balance, this week’s foodie find is here to take a little heat off your kitchen commitment. Plus, The Handbook readers can take advantage of an exclusive 25% off – more on that later.
Enter Alta Foods, the delivery service specialising in Asian cuisine that guarantees to take the fuss out of midweek cooking and satiate any weekend take-out cravings with one of the best ‘fakeaways’ we’ve found.
The brand has teamed up with renowned Dumplings’ Legend, the London-based restaurant in Chinatown, as well as the long established Goldfish in Hampstead to create over 20 ready-made, restaurant quality meals delivered straight to your door.
If you’re unfamiliar with Dumplings’ Legend, they are one of the most esteemed restaurants in London’s Chinatown, creating authentic Cantonese cuisine (Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall are said to be fans) and some of the best dim sum we’ve tasted in the capital.
Highlights of their Alta menu include; the slow cooked, seriously tender Dongpo Braised Pork Belly; the 24-hour Marinated Aubergine with Minced Pork and Chilli and the veggie-friendly Marinated Aubergine in Chili, Garlic and Ginger.
If a takeaway every night is out of the question for both your health and your bank balance, this week’s foodie find is here to take a little heat off your kitchen commitments.
Then there is Alta’s collaboration with Goldfish, one of Hampstead’s best-loved restaurants and without a doubt one of London’s top Chinese’s – The Guardian awarded it a whopping 9.95/10!
They’ve created 11 tasty dishes ready for delivery, from the traditional Hot and Sour Seafood Soup to extra crispy Egg Noodles with Medium Rare Beef Fillet and the melt-in-your-mouth Mongolian Pork Ribs.
The best bit? All the skill required in the kitchen is the ability to boil the kettle. Each meal comes precooked and prepackaged in pouches which can be frozen for up to one month. When you’re ready to enjoy, simply pop the pouch in boiling water and continue to boil for 20 minutes for a restaurant-quality, delicious dinner.
Alta Foods UK delivers nationwide across the whole of London and the UK Mainland, making it a perfect meal package for any friends or family who cannot get access to premium Asian food.
