Selfie isolating moment and yet another wee plan- in light of government advice that food delivery services can operate I’ve decided that from next week that will be my focus for the time being, I will be working completely solo from my kitchen and like everybody else isolating at home so can’t undertake too much but the plan is a mix of 3-5 different dishes in 5 x 2 large portion serves meaning you can keep chilled or freeze so in total I deliver 30-50 serves at once but this can be stored chilled for days and frozen for 6 months so no waste.Cottage pies,Tagine, Beef Burgundy, lamb curry, meatballs, coq au vin, fish pie and all served with a DYI veg box and delivered to your front door but not beyond – if anyone is interested you can email me at barry@cateredinburgh.com all my wee delivery dishes will be delivered chilled via my kitchen to fridge transport and will be made with skill and care and the best ingredients, you must advise me of any allergens however. I will likely only do deliveries over Thursday and Friday and start this from Monday of next week meaning I cook Mon-Wed and deliver Thursday and Friday to Edinburgh and the Edinburgh area.

“We’re asking people to consider supporting the businesses local to you as an alternative to purchasing via big supply chains and through supermarkets. If we don’t, many small suppliers are going to cease to exist very quickly. We are also offering nourishing, wholesome meals to be enjoyed at home and will be putting the usual Fhior care and attention into this.”

The restaurant has also launched its own ‘social distancing’ takeaway menu offering the type of lunch dishes Fhior fans are familiar with.

Just 15 minutes order time is required for the menu which features their homemade beremeal sourdough bread and fresh, cultured butter. Fhior’s selection of carefully selected wines, beers and soft drinks will also be available.
