Cook restaurant-quality food in your home with Little Kitchen’s recipe box kit
While we may all be fed up with the phrase ‘staying in is the new going out’, thank goodness for innovation!
Cookery school Little Kitchen, who moved to its premises in Totterdown just before the pandemic struck, has turned its hand to producing recipe box kits to cook at home, and for a variety of diets.
Simply order from its mouth-watering menu by midday Thursday for collection on Friday.
I chose the Lamb Kofta with Pilau rice and cucumber raita – which handily happened to be gluten free. Perfect!
Packed in a reusable paper bag, the kit contained everything needed, including easy-to-follow instructions and even drink recommendations to accompany the dish.
Little Kitchen’s ingredients are fresh and locally sourced
The ingredients were fresh and of good quality with locally reared lamb. In fact, all ingredients are sourced predominantly from Bristol and local businesses.
When cooking the kofta, the aromas were divine: fresh, aromatic spices with a slightly sweet smell filled the kitchen. The spice mix for the rice had a mouth-wateringly fragrant aroma.
The succulent and moist koftas gave out a slow, comforting heat, followed by an after-kick.
The fresh-tasting dish is well-balanced, with a salty sharpness that’s tangy and citrusy and gives a sharp punch. While, the saltiness of the sauce is balanced by the koftas, and the cool, fresh raita contrasts well against the heat of the chilli and sauce.
I had great fun cooking this with my teenage son – he cooked and I tasted! There is plenty for two – in fact, my family of five tried the dish. It’s great for a fun night in, a special treat or something to look forward to at the end of the week.
Overall, restaurant-quality food at less-than takeaway prices. Absolutely superb!
