Dished Up Deli Delivers Romance To Your Door This ValentinesExcalibur Press Newsroom
Give the gift of food this Valentines with a sweet treat from Belfast’s homemade food delivery service, Dished Up Deli, with their ‘Love In A Box’ Valentines range.
Made to order and delivered straight to your door, the collection includes a decadent chocolate brownie box and a belgian chocolate geometric heart filled with a choice of rose water sponge or chocolate brownie.
Founder of the food delivery company which was started over the first lockdown, Philip Davison, believed there is an emphasis on buying personalised and thoughtful gifts this year due to Brexit’s influence on Northern Ireland.
“I’ve seen a definite rise in consumer demand for personalised gifts instead of the typical off the shelf items especially due to Brexit, we are now shopping more locally and supporting local businesses like myself who have the capacity to offer customisable gifts,” he said.
Philip has also created an at home Valentines meal menu for those wanting to bring the restaurant to their living rooms this year.
The luxury four course ‘Heat at Home’ meal for two features a colourful chorizo salad, mouthwatering slow cooked beef, fresh meringues and a cheese board with crackers and chutneys.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions on hospitality, Philip recognised the demand to create an at-home dining experience for couples to still celebrate the most romantic day of the year.
“There has been an increase in people renovating their homes over lockdown and creating a nicer environment to relax and enjoy a romantic meal in.
“This year due to Covid, restaurants will also be working at less capacity so trying to secure a booking over the Valentines weekend will be much more competitive”.
After sharing images of food he made throughout lockdown, hospitality management graduate Philip decided to make the leap and complete requests from family and friends.
Since then, his business has expanded to offering rotating weekly menus, savoury and sweet snacks which are based around quality homemade cooking paired with innovation to match the needs of the seasons.
“Over the several lockdowns I shared pictures of some creation on Facebook and got slightly hounded,” he explained.
“I finally got a call saying would you make that dinner for me and my friend and that is how Dished up Deli was born.”
Orders received by 6pm on Wednesday 9 February will be delivered on Friday 11 February between 5-8pm.
