Don’t feel like cooking tonight? Thanks to Manuka At Home, you can enjoy restaurant quality meals delivered to your door…
Sometimes the best ideas are born from adversity. Faced with repeated lockdowns, Joseph Antippa, the charming owner of Manuka Kitchen on Fulham Road, needed to think creatively. He did – and the result is Manuka At Home.
Following a successful career in catering and hotel management, Joseph opened the business nine years ago. ‘It had always been my dream to own a restaurant,’ he says. ‘My vision was to create a relaxing informal place where you could enjoy excellent meals made from fresh, healthy ingredients – and it wouldn’t break the bank.’
The concept worked and the restaurant flourished – and then Covid-19 struck. Undaunted, Joseph came up with a plan which he called Heat and Eat. ‘The idea is to translate the complete experience of coming to Manuka Kitchen to your own home,’ he explains. ‘We deliver the chosen meal and the customer heats it up (all instructions are included); there’s no compromise on taste as the food is cooked by our Head Chef, we add extras such as bread and butter, vegetables and potatoes, and the menus are even personalised.
‘Our Day Box has a choice of five starters, five mains and four desserts – we’re renowned for our fish starters – the Sunday Lunch Box is a superb Beef Wellington with all the trimmings, we have recently introduced Steak & Wine Night, that’s delivered hot and it’s proving popular, and we’re about to launch Single Meals where you don’t have to commit to three courses.’
The process couldn’t be more simple. Customers order the day before to receive their Box for the next evening and there’s no geographic limit for deliveries. ‘On Mother’s Day we sent a meal to Cheshire, so Fulham and Hammersmith is no problem,’ smiles Joseph. ‘Also, all our food comes in degradable sugar cane containers – it’s a small touch but it reflects the love and effort we put into our food.
‘If you don’t feel like cooking or want to entertain friends and family, why not let us do all the work? We’ll deliver our signature high quality food straight to your home!’
