What do you think of when you hear the words ‘comfort food’? Comfort meals are all associated with you feeling toasty, content and eating something delicious. With London now being pretty chilly, we felt it was up to us to offer you meals to be enjoyed in the warmth of your own home and (if you want) in your pj’s! You can find them on the EatFirst menu today, ready to warm you up for your Friday night in:
Shepherd’s Pie - Chef Benn's take on this classic consists of British lamb mince in his homemade sauce, before being covered with creamy mashed potato. Served alongside is pickled red cabbage. "It has a combination of rustic nostalgia and freshness, with lots of root vegetables, fresh mint and rosemary." - Chef Benn Hodges. We suggest accompanying this dish with a glass (or two) of red wine!
Pork Belly Bao - You might be surprised to find these cute little buns in this article. However, if you’re spending an evening in with friends and drinking a few beers, imaging enjoying fresh bao’s filled with pork belly, sriracha mayo, chilli, coriander, pickled carrot and daikon. Good food and good company = feeling toasty, content and eating something delicious!
Indian Fish Curry - A curry that gives you all of the comfort, but none of the guilt! Hake, spinach and juicy cherry tomatoes are poached in a mild curry sauce, infused with mustard seeds, curry leaves, garam marsala and turmeric. This dish is served with grilled broccolini tossed in a lime and madras vinaigrette and wild rice pilaf.
Honey and Pine Nut Tart - An Italian classic, featuring toasted pine nuts and honey in a sweet tart shell, with a touch of whipped cream. We suggest pulling over a blanket, opening a good book and relaxing with a cup of tea and a slice of this tart.
It’s cold, raining and your sofa is calling you! So give yourself a relaxing Friday night in, with the food that you love. Simply order your dinner before 7.30pm from EatFirst and we’ll deliver it straight to your door - we’ll let you pick your wine!
