Waitrose is launching a menu of indulgent home-dine dishes inspired by some of the nation’s most formidable chefs including Pierre Koffmann, Anthony Demetre and Bryn Williams.
The retailer’s Executive Chef Neil Nugent has collaborated with selected chefs to create a menu of contemporary restaurant dishes, which can all be enjoyed in the comfort of the home.
Launching next month, the range of dishes, named ‘Menu From’, represents a celebration of the most loved dishes from some of the nation’s most popular and upcoming restaurants. Made from top quality ingredients, it is also designed to ensure there is little or no preparation involved.
Neil Nugent, Waitrose Executive Chef, says: “We wanted to create a range of dishes that are truly reflective of those found on the menu of top restaurants. By collaborating with Pierre, Bryn and Anthony we have been able to make innovative dishes of restaurant quality that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.
“The range includes a selection of mains as well as starters and sides so customers can kick off their shoes and enjoy a night in.”
Menu From highlights include its delicious slow cooked mains. From Coq au Vin and Beef Bourguignon, influenced by rustic Gascon style to navarin of lamb inspired by the delicious dishes found on the menus at celebrated London restaurants, Arbutus and Wild Honey.
The menu also offers some of the nation’s most comforting and familiar dishes such as steak and dumplings. The all-new Shepherd’s pie is inspired by Bryn Williams, whose speciality for British fayre won him the Great British Menu and the opportunity to cook for HRH the Queen at her birthday banquet.
All of the lines have an introductory price until 17 March. For further information call 01933 355099 or email Mandy Keyes at 690_SMGeneral@waitrose.co.uk.
