Way ahead of the game in terms of meal delivery kits, Pasta Evangelists have been delivering restaurant-quality pasta dishes since 2015. Taking inspiration from every corner of Italy, there’s something for everyone, with 10 seasonal dishes added to the menu each week. Forget carbonara or spaghetti Bolognese and think tagliatelle with beef shin and Barolo red wine, asparagus and pecorino tortellini with lemon and garlic butter or gnocchi with lamb shoulder ragu. Using lesser-known pasta shapes and high-quality sauces, this is pasta elevated to a higher level.
We may be cooped up at home for the time being, but why not take a culinary adventure to Sri Lanka courtesy of Kolamba’s newly-launched feasting kits?

Four months after opening with a prime spot in Borough Market, Tel Aviv-inspired pita purveyors Shuk had to close due to lockdown. Now available for delivery, they are also selling DIY kits to bring the Shuk experience home, whether from one of their filled pitas or bubala desserts. With a choice of lamb meatballs or fish tagine, the pitas are a particular success: super easy to assemble and packed full of flavour thanks to the fresh herbs and accompanying sauces (amba tahini and tomato harissa sauce for the fish version, chili mayo for the lamb), they make for a real treat dinner - rich and spicy, fragrant and moist.
If you have ever walked past one of Ottolenghi’s delis, you will no doubt have been entranced by the whimsical displays of colourful meringues, cakes and tarts piled high in the windows. And now you can pick up something sweet to order for local delivery too!
