Enjoy food from your favourite Glasgow restaurants this lockdown.
Crying out for your go-to restaurants to be open? Us too. We are all in desperate need to change things up from eating somewhere besides our dining table or lap and food that we haven’t made ourselves. Eating out was pretty damn great. Especially as it is was better than some of the creations we are making right now. Luckily, Glasgow restaurants have made some adjustments and helped bring some their sorely-missed flavours and ambiance to our door in the form of kits and heat at home packages, that include everything to prepare their meals in our very own kitchens. Here are some of the best lockdown kits you will find in the city of Glasgow.
1. Paesano Pizza
Launching earlier on in the year at Paesano Pizza, fans of their award-winning pizza can now get hold of their very own bake at home pizzas again (doughy crust included!) thanks to the much-loved Glasgow pizzeria. And differentiating themselves from the competition, they’re offering 12 different pizza varieties for you to choose from, including a vegan spiced pumpkin one. You can now enjoy pizza from one of the top ten pizzerias in Europe, also included in our guide to the best pizzas in Glasgow, and try to pass it off as your own. Cook at home pizzas start from £5 and you can order them via Deliveroo and Uber Eats, as well as some tasty side dishes or extra toppings like olives, burrata and balsamic onions.
2. Porter & Rye
Bringing the Porter & Rye experience home, Sunday roast fans can now enjoy the weekend treat in the comfort of their own living rooms – with each of Porter & Rye’s lockdown kits including roast beef, braised ox cheek, bone marrow gravy, beef dripping Yorkshire puddings, honey glazed carrots, charred shallot and buttered tenderstem broccoli, creamed cabbage with smoked pancetta, plus beef dripping and beef dripping and rosemary roasted potatoes. The full experience costs £50 for two, and also comes with a bottle of wine. Orders must be made by Friday in order to collect on Saturday or Sunday.
3. Dough For Dough
Allowing customers to try their own hand at pizza making, Dough For Dough is delivering DIY lockdown kits including two or four ready-proofed dough balls, tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese (vegan option available) and, of course, the all important cooking instructions. It’s the perfect way to have the fresh-out-of-the-oven experience at home while you can’t have one in a restaurant – and you can take all the credit. Win-win. They also have cookie and churro kits available for all your dessert needs and have just announced a brand new fondue box with waffle pieces, mini croissants, marshmallows and strawberries to dip into melted chocolate. No, you’re drooling.
4. Six by Nico
Six by Nico is known for regularly touring the world with their fantastic cuisine, and during the lockdown, they’ll be bringing the experiences directly to our homes. Taking our taste buds to Burgundy this time, customers will be able to enjoy ready to enjoy courses including a starter, main, two sides, a cheese course and dessert. Each box will also come with a bottle of wine to compliment – with enough food for two. The boxes cost £60 each, which is a fantastic deal for high-quality restaurant cuisine.
Experience the best dishes from this elegant restaurant as well as some top quality and local ingredients and drinks. Gamba has a number of dishes for you to either finish or simply serve at home as part of their Gamba To Go range which alter on a weekly basis. Last week saw a three course menu of fish soup for starters; peat smoked haddock with shellfish creamed, leeks, peas, kale and potatoes as the main course; chocolate cremeux with mascarpone, pecan and maple syrup for dessert; and a bottle of white wine. The Gamba To Go three course menu costs £70, or £80 with the wine included. You can order from their website and collect from the restaurant at a designated time.
6. Eusebi Deli
Glasgow’s independent Italian delicatessen and restaurant, Eusebi Deli, will be serving up their very own lockdown kits – each packed with everything you need to make a delicious pasta dish or sourdough pizza from home. The pasta options include ox cheek del plin, nduja ravioli, fettucine bolognese, pappardelle lamb ragu and pumpkin and ricotta agnolotti with sage butter. Both pasta and pizza kits offering the option to add sides and extra toppings, as well as recommended wine or beer pairings for each dish. But that’s not all from Eusebi Deli. You can also order some of their classic dishes to reheat at home like their meatballs in a rich tomato sugo sauce, lasagne or cannelloni with ricotta and mushrooms. And if you’re feeling really fancy order one of their afternoon tea for two with a selection of Italian-inspired sandwiches and pastries with the option of adding a bottle of Prosecco, Negroni or Aperol Spritz to. Plus, they’ve got some festive food ideas up their sleeves! Check out their online shop here.
