The House Chef Delivers…

We’ve been watching an intriguing, and ingenious, twitter account developing over the last few weeks – The House Chef. It suddenly appeared, promising restaurant standard food, home cooked by chefs and delivered to your door.

Now, living in West Didsbury, and with Didsbury Village and Chorlton mere minutes away, we’re not spoiled for choice when it comes to food options. Eating in has also never been a problem (apart from when I attempt DIY) – because there’s plenty of choice there too. We remember very fondly SousChef (now The Rose Garden, on Burton Rd) – a fantastic concept, but still with that slight problem of having to do a little bit of cooking yourself.

So that’s why we’ve been watching The House Chef with interest. Because they have chefs that do it all for you. And deliver it your door. Result! The website states :

Restaurant quality, locally cooked food delivered straight to your home. Great chefs cook gourmet food for you. Simply enter your post code and choose a chef to order from…

So, we tried it out last week. The website also states – “Join our takeaway revolution…” – and what is delivered to your door, is a little bit revolutionary. Simply because what is delivered to your door is prepared and cooked by restaurant chefs, but with the convenience of a take-away style.

All you need to do is put in your post-code on the website, and the chef most local to you pops up with their menu choices. Our chef was Jake Buchan (of Damson, Heaton Moor) and from his menu we chose herring pate with onion marmalade & toast (starter), caramelised onion & goats cheese tart and English asparagus with potato cake & soft boiled egg (done to UTTER perfection) as mains.

Although we’ve only done it once, I wouldn’t have any hesitation in going back to The House Chef. I think they may just become my little secret when friends come round for dinner…
