In the kitchen


Emily’s daughter, Jemima (aged 13), tried out Baked In’s home-delivery Baking Club: “i got a thin brown cardboard box through the letterbox but instead of having a boring book inside it had all the ingredients for a tray of cranberry and chocolate brownies. the recipe was by michel Roux and was pretty easy – everything was already weighed out. i just had to mix them together and add an egg. i did it when i got back from school and it was really relaxing. mum says she will sign me up.”

piccolo plates

Piccolo Plates is the brainchild of two West london foodies (one a cook and one a nutritionist). they have a short, simple menu of home-cooked dishes that they deliver to your door on tuesdays and thursdays. our junior reviewers pronounced the cottage pie “as good as mum’s”, the fish goujons “delish” and even the veggie shepherd’s pie was given a thumbs up.

All dishes cost £5 and comfortably feed two young children.
