Meet Our Chefs
It's our mission to connect you with passionate independent chefs who make authentic dishes that are personal to them. Our chefs include skilled home cooks, professional chefs and micro brands.
My prior experience working with the then Global Executive Head Chef of Hakkasan Group allowed me to understand how well educated the customers in the West were on Chinese food and in particular, Dim Sum. The limited availability of specialist dim sum offerings gave me the idea to launch Mai Dim Sum. The rest is history...
Willy’s pies was an idea I’d had for a while, having previously worked as a chef at some of London’s top restaurants. When lockdown hit it was the perfect time to make it happen. Knocking out the pies from my pokey home kitchen in Leyton couldn’t last long, and we now find ourselves in our own purpose built kitchen under an arch. From the humble beginnings of push bike deliveries, we now find ourselves wholesaling to stores nationwide.
Som & Tam
We are childhood friends, born in Bangkok. Som loves eating and Tam loves cooking and when we cook together it has always been of epic proportions. Som started her cooking journey by having a chicken satay stall in Brick Lane with recipes passed down by her mum. Tam started cooking and become a chef since he was 18, and also gained experience at the university in Thailand. We want to be ambassadors for your true authentic Thai experience.
Hi, I'm Maame, and I'm originally from Ghana, West Africa. My cooking story started when one afternoon, my Mama Jane asks me to prepare Jollof Rice for the family for supper. “What”?! I had had experience of cooking with her from when I was six years old but had never cooked a whole dish all by myself. I got on with it and the meal turned out great. The compliments from my Mama Jane, who’s a fantastic cook, gave me the boost to carry on cooking.
The Che Cosa team, led by Manuel, are passionate about authentic Italian food that tastes just how Nonna used to make it. Having cooked all over Rome, Naples, London, Ibiza, and Athens, the team found a perfect, rustic, cosy restaurant on Holloway Road and have been sharing their home recipes with love, laughter, wine, and great music!

How can we help you?
What areas do you deliver?
We deliver across the whole of the UK, excluding the highlands of Scotland and Northern Ireland.
What happens if I am not at home during the delivery?
You will receive a notification on the day of delivery giving you a 1 hour time slot. Your dishes can be left on your doorstep or with a neighbour for up to 24 hours. We use dry ice to keep the box cold.
How to re-heat the meals?
You have the option to reheat the meals directly from the frozen, or you can defrost them a day ahead in the fridge and then reheat the chilled meals.
We have instructions on the packaging for how to achieve the best result, whether using a microwave or an oven.
What is the shelf life of the meals?
If you store them in the freezer, they can be kept for up to a month. However, if you place them in the fridge, they should be consumed within 2 to 3 days.
Are the meals frozen?
Yes. Our chefs cook with fresh ingredients and natural seasoning. We immediately freeze the meals to lock in these flavours, so you can enjoy a fresh, preservative-free meal at any time.
Can you deliver in chilled condition?
Yes, we offer chilled delivery! Our meals are frozen first to lock in freshness, then gently defrosted during delivery.
With chilled delivery, your meals arrive ready to eat within 3 days. Just heat and enjoy! But keep in mind chilled meals can't be re-frozen.
