Over the past 12 months, London’s restaurants have innovated like hell. When the city went into lockdown in March 2020 and venues had to shut their doors, many popped up on takeaway apps. Others gave themselves a makeover, transforming into shops. But the most boss move of all? Developing recipe boxes that Londoners could use to make their food at home.
Dishoom created a kit that helped you recreate its famous bacon naan, there were Honest and Patty & Bun burger boxes and all sorts of curry packs. Now there are loads of DIY kits. Some involve multiple pans, others require simply putting things together, all promise restaurant-quality food at home.
Some of our favourite new additions to the scene? Berenjak’s gormeh sabzi – a lamb and bean stew, served with tahdig (crispy saffron rice) and salad – as well as all the slow-cooked meats you can choose to fill corn tortillas with via Tacos Padre’s at-home kits and the massive weekend kit from Shuk. Plus, we’re finding it fun to try kits from top restaurants around the country too. Read on to find your dream meal kit.
