Ladies who lunch!
Last Friday the lovely Sophie invited us Acton mothers to have a home cooked meal by Riverford organic Farmers, with a few glasses of prosecco!
The idea is for Riverford to bring a selected box of vegetables and cook the entire box for us ladies… These generous portions were not only filling but truly delicious, and not a piece of bread touched my lips!
We began with a celery soup, blue cheese crostini - AMAZING - Who knew!
A wide selection of dishes kept arriving to the table. Courgette and basil risotto with cherry tomatoes - KILLING IT! Who needs meat, I’m telling myself.
Carrot and pointed cabbage asian slaw with peanut and ginger - simple dish, got to have this as a regular in my house hold.
Roasted red pepper hummus with cumin. Yes!
Chickpea, cauliflower and butternut squash curry. Much rather than an oily take away!
Wheatberry and purple sprouting broccoli salad scattered with crispy friend onions, chilli and garlic - take this over a ready made salad any day.
Finished with (if you have room) Pear and Almond Cake - just stunning!
(If you sign up you receive recipes from the lunch, however there is no pressure)
Really impressed by the bouncy bunch of ladies from Riverford. After our healthy lunch came the pitch and I was sold! What really gave me the extra push is that at Riverford Farm they grow all their fruit & veg nothing is out sourced. They have a farm in Devon (which you are welcome to go and see) also a farm in France.
The supermarkets are preserving our foods and making them presentable by adding shimmers and shines as we know and this is often on my mind - you could say perfect timing for Riverford.
Organically grown and delivered without charges is ideal for me.
I ordered my fist box of vegetables and small box of fruit to be delivered each week or you may choose every other week - they are flexible.
The only issue is when will I find the time, I asked!?!?
Brightly answered “why not try the recipe box”? The recipe box contains ready prepared - ready weighed veg with recipes - that’s me!
Very excited, here comes Thursday’s delivery - will keep you posted!
