Eat Out At Home With Taste Of Ulster Members

Most of us really miss eating out and while we can do our bit by cooking with as much local produce as possible, sometimes, you just want your meal put in front of you. Covid-19 has hit a lot of industries hard but the hospitality industry has taken one of the biggest blows. You can do your bit to help keep them afloat and spread some love and kindness to family, friends and neighbours.

Many Taste of Ulster members have reacted to the pandemic by offering takeaway and home delivery options. Some are also feeding NHS staff only like the Armagh City Hotel and Wine and Brine in Moira.

Others are doing food which can be collected like Captain Jack’s in Portaferry. Who wouldn’t like to get some yummy fish and chips left at their door for a neighbour?

You could also pick up some cakes and bakes at French Village or and host a virtual coffee morning now that Zoom parties are all the rage.

Some chefs have decided to share some of their secrets with people at home by doing online cookery demos. They include Great British Menu contestants Paul Cunningham from Brunel’s in Newcastle, from Clenaghan’s in Aghalee and Buba and Coppi restaurants in Belfast.

Lots of us are baking at home but not everyone is pleased with the results. Primrose at the Quay in Derry-Londonderry are doing scones and scone mixes to pick up.

Sunday lunch is often time for families to get together. The Tailors House in Ballygawley, Tyrone is among those doing them for takeaway. You can order some for whoever is in your house and drop portions off with friends and relatives.

Gift vouchers are also a great idea for when all of this is over. They will put a smile on anyone’s face to get one in the post.
