If you love Indian food, Dishoom is the meal delivery service to know. For something a little different, order in one of its famed bacon naan kits, which now comes with a ‘Marmalade Mimosa’, made with marmalade liqueur, fresh ruby grapefruit and Integrale natural sparkling wine. The kit contains everything you need for a fun brunch, alongside spices and loose-leaf tea to make the restaurant’s chai. Best of all, for every kit you order, the restaurant group donates a meal to Magic Breakfast. For an evening meal or relaxed weekend lunch, we love its feasting boxes. New this month is its Chicken Ruby kit, which includes many ofDishoom’s much loved items includingchicken ruby, naan, bhel, basmati rice, tenderstem broccoli and house black daal –plus a gulkand mess for afters: strawberries in rose syrup served with fresh cream and meringue.

The River Café

It’s not the cheapest option on this list, but you can’t go wrong with a feast from The River Café, one of the capital’s most-loved restaurants. While the team has wound down its collection of feasting boxes post-pandemic, it is still possible to whip up an impressive meal at home using its most recent collection of pastas, sauces and cakes. We suggest opting for a box of Cipriani pasta and a couple of jars of sauce –think lemon, rocket and crème fraîche; amatriciana; and pork ragù –finished with one of founder Ruthie Rogers’ chocolate nemesis cakes or a couple of scoops of gelato.

Made In Oldstead

Now, it’s a full-blown business that even has its own collection of canned wines, Banks Brothers. At this time of year, dishes could include duck liver and truffle parfait served with brioche, followed by seared beef rump with a red wine jus and finishing with a salted caramel chocolate fondant served with toffee apple sauce.

Michel Roux Jr for Dishpatch

Masterchef: The Professionals head judge Michel Roux Jr’s delivery-only box – sent via Dishpatch – offers a collection of traditional French favourites. And now his much-loved restaurant Le Gavroche has closed, it’s one of the only ways to try his delicious dishes. Current menus include silky cauliflower soup, followed by succulent beef cheek bourguignon, slow-braised for six hours with lardons and winter vegetables. Then there’s a truly indulgent chalet-style tartiflette designed for two to share. The latter also comes with a fresh endive salad and pain perdu with brandy prunes to end the meal.

Fortnum & Mason

Daylesford Steak Set

We’ve said it many times, but Daylesford is one of the nation’s best and most sustainable farm shops. It also has its own abattoir and an award-winning cheesemonger. These days, BBQ, family and breakfast meat boxes are offered alongside a new steak night set designed for the ultimate indulgent night in. Each steak is cut by hand, before being dry-aged for 35 days in the farm's Himalayan salt chamber for exceptional flavour and texture.
