I am Alice Hill, the Head Chef and I am 20 years-old. While studying for my A levels I worked part-time front of house and in the kitchen at John’s House (Leicestershire’s only Michelin-starred restaurant).
After finishing school, I then spent 18 months working as a full time chef at the two-Michelin star Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham before being recruited to be a private chef for a luxury ski chalet in Morzine, France.
After the resort was closed due to Covid-19, I returned home to Leicestershire in March.
It was when my family and I were eating a takeaway one evening early in lockdown that we thought that maybe I could cook and deliver meals from our home kitchen with the help of my parents and younger brother. We just expected this to last for a few weeks during lockdown and be used by a handful of local homes in Quorn and surrounding villages. We now deliver meals to over 600 customers each weekend within a 15 minute drive of Quorn and Loughborough. Since the first lockdown we have expanded so quickly that we have moved to a commercial kitchen and we now employ 3 chefs and many helpers.
We cover home deliveries within 15 minutes drive of Quorn and Loughborough. For those who live further afield, a member of the team can meet customers at various pick up points within the 15 minute drive of Quorn.
We have a number of menus available, all of which are created by myself.
Fridays – One of our most popular menus is the incredible 10-course small plates tasting menu which is normally on offer on Friday evenings. At just £19.95 per person it has been said that this might just be the best value gourmet taster menu in the UK! The 10 Course Small Plates Tasting Menu changes every week.
Saturdays – Posh Pies and Puddings.
Also Fresh homemade Soup and a Gourmet Special Main Course which changes every week (all from £4.95)
Sundays – Traditional Sunday Lunch with all the trimmings from £14.95 per adult and £9.95 per child.

We hope to be cooking for you soon!
