For an indulgent Easter treat, take your pick of dishes the Tom Aikens designed Easter menu delivery from Finish & Feast. Choose a main, starter and dessert, with three options for each, plus get a free cocktail to kick off celebrations. We enjoyed the Grapefruit Spritz made with Tanqueray gin, fresh pink grapefruit juice and soda water. Shaken together in seconds along with sugar syrup and a wedge of fresh grapefruit to garnish, it was a perfect light, well-balanced sweet and tart aperitif before the rich three course meal. This is high-end restaurant quality meal delivery, with complex multi-component dishes to choose from but super simple assembly required - elements are largely ready cooked, even in piping bags ready for you, so everything just requires reheating or plating up. Our beef shortrib pie with cheesy mash was hearty, whilst a smooth panna cotta dessert was topped with crunchy crumble and tangy apple gel. Instructions are clear (as are details on how to dispose of the compact packaging) and the finished dishes make an impressive Easter meal for two.
