Helpful Quarantine Resources
In this time of so much uncertainty, especially within the hospitality industry, it’s been so heartwarming to see everyone band together, a reminder why we got into this industry in the first place. We want to sing the praises of all the cool people out there doing some pretty cool stuff during this isolation time. From tasty food and delicious drink to resources, tips and tricks we’ve gathered a few of our favourites for you to browse.
FOOD & WINE
While Quality Chop House restaurant has had to close, their deli and wine shop are still up and running providing locals with a delicious selection of meats, dry store essentials and wine.
Since opening we’ve created a great network of producers that have always provided us with top quality fruit and veg. Due to restaurants (aka their main income source) now being shut Natoora, Food Chain and Pale Green Dot are now providing home deliveries.
If you’re looking for an epic resource for all things food, look no further than Clerkenwell Boy’s list of restaurants and producers that have turned to alternative delivery services.
Bastarda London’s, Honey Spencer has just launched Eat East Collective, a new account on Instagram working to supporting the hospitality community in east London.
As of late March, food and wine bar The Laughing Heart will now be providing a pick up and delivery option for customers.
Our pals over at p.franco are also supplying Londoners with a great selection of their wines that you can get delivered to your door, I think we can all agree that London’s takeaway game has never tasted so good.
If you’re living in East London try ordering from Kemp Kitchen, for every meal you order they will deliver another meal to a vulnerable person or family in need.
There’s always deliveroo if after reading this list you still can’t find something to eat for supper, but for those of you that prefer to get your hands dirty and cook something up yourself, head over to The Ginger Pig or Henderson Seafood who are both offering delivery to their customers.
