Best Food and Drink deliveries

I’ve been a repeat customer of Valimex ever since lockdown began and have been utterly impressed with the quality of the fresh produce received in my Vegetable and Fruit boxes, some of it lasting in my fridge in great condition for almost two weeks!
They also offer an array of bolt ons from dairy essentials, flour, to pasta and cheese boxes, and for those of you who are Mango lovers like me, you can get hold of the king of fruits with them too!
Delivery is free and next day if you order before 3pm.

Neal’s Yard Dairy

Neal’s Yard Dairy is a central London institution and I adore the Devon Blue! Perfect for a cheeseboard or as an ingredient!

It’s an important time to support British Cheese.

Cutter and Squidge

For our 10 year wedding anniversary celebrations, which ended up being right at the start of lockdown, we indulged in a delicious cake from Cutter and Squidge!

Highly recommend them for desserts for any occasion – sublime!

The Veggie Grazer

I stumbled across The Veggie Grazer on Instagram and ordered one of their limited edition boxes for Raksha Bhandan for my brother and I was incredibly impressed with the box when it was delivered!

It made my brother’s day special and everything was just perfect.

The Veggie Grazer does lots of wonderful boxes from a Cheese Box, Afternoon Tea box to a Bougee Brunch Box! They are so great as treats, surprises or just because – life is too short to miss out on fantastic food!

Why not order one and enjoy it in the garden, park or even cosied up in front of your TV!

I will definitely be ordering another one to try super soon!

Bad Brownies

I have literally ordered from Bad Brownie every other week as Amit and I like to have a slab of brownie with coffee or tea at around 4pm every day! Love love love their Brownies! We usually get the bestseller collection.

They make a great treat to send someone in the post too as they deliver nationwide.

Pizza Pilgrims 


This box has everything you need to make a delicious Neapolitan pizza at home and believe me, it is SO much fun to make and even more delicious to eat! Great to do as a couple or a family and all the ingredients are of a high quality, which means that the pizzas are full of incredible flavour.

The box costs £15 and makes two pizzas.

Cheeky Food Company

What I consider store-cupboard essentials in my house are Cheeky Food Company’s range of chutneys, pickles and savoury sprinkles based on old family recipes, that have made their way between the kitchen and dinner table for generations. Each has a story of its own and will no doubt result in many more, as you share them with your family and friends.

My favourites are the Mango chutney, smelly garlic pickle and all the sprinkles – perfect for salads, stir frys and more!

Tyga is a fantastic subscription box where you receive Tyga spice boxes delivered to your door and all you need to do is just add a few fresh ingredients. Recipe cards are included which are easy to follow and you can cancel, pause or change your subscription at any time, hassle-free.

WineTrust is a wonderful website for wine lovers with a huge variety of wines sourced by experts. I was kindly gifted some bottles for a Zoom Wine Tasting (which if they hold again I highly recommend) and I will most definitely be ordering some more wine soon!

WineTrust

The Wine List

The Wine List is a ‘monthly wine course’ where you’ll receive two bottles of fine wine, alongside a complete Introduction & Tasting Guide to help you to fully discover the flavours and learn more about the wine that has been delivered to your door.

There are also two Taste Notes cards where you can circle/tick certain categories as you taste the flavours, and space at the bottom to write down your own notes on the wines for your personal future reference. The tasting card will focus on one Wine Principle. Over time you’ll learn all the core principles of wine tasting through exploring new grapes, regions and winemakers.

I was gifted one to experience which had two Spanish wines, and I really enjoyed it and learned a lot!

Tails Cocktails (gifted)

Perfect for picnics, BBQs, sundowners, or just because you want to enjoy a delicious cocktail, Tails Cocktails are a dream! They were created for professional use in bars and hospitality, to ensure consistent quality, ease and speed of service and are made with premium spirits and liqueurs, blended with only natural flavours, juices and infusions.

Now you can enjoy them at home and all you need is your favourite glass filled with ice!

I tried their Pornstar Martini and it is absolutely delicious!

It is worth noting the sustainability element of this brand too as they batch cocktails, which is an extremely sustainable method as it significantly reduces wastage. Tails also uses no perishable goods in our cocktails which results in zero waste.

Their other flavours include Espresso Martini, Mojito, Garden Cocktail, Negroni, and much more!

Bottle Bar and Shop (gifted)

Can we firstly take a second to appreciate how cute these handmade bottled cocktails by Bottle Bar Shop are? Each one is infuses, mixed, created, prepared and bottled at Bottle Bar and Shop in London’s Catford and delivered straight to your door. They are free of additives and utterly sublime!

I tried the Passionfruit Martini and Cosmopolitan and I have to say, it was just like a cocktail you’d get served up in a bar! I’d highly recommend putting an order in asap and they have a wide range to choose from such as Negroni, Twisted Old Fashioned, Margarita, Espresso Martini, Lychee Martini, Bloody Mary. and so much more! Personally I have my eyes on the Lychee Martini to try next!

Fear not if you are not a cocktail lover –  they also have an extremely well curated list of wine, fizz and craft beers available to order too!

With glorious weather on the horizon for a long stretch there has never been a better time to stockpile on these gems! Alternatively, it makes a nice surprise to send someone in the post!

GinKing (gifted)

Ginking is a sparkling blend of English white wine and exclusively made London Dry Gin steeped in natural botanicals. Along with the original, there is a Ginking Rose, Botanica Italia and Mediterranean, which all combine wines from a country of inspirational travel destinations combined with locally inspired botanicals, and are refreshing and the perfect summer tipple!

My favourite is the Mediterranean – a blend of Spanish white wine and natural botanicals that represent the glorious Mediterranean region; rosemary, thyme, orange and pine, with London Dry Gin.

Sultan Tea
Tea lovers you need to try the range of teas from Sultan Tea, especially if you are a Mint Tea lover!
