The popular at home service from Six by Nico is back - here's what you can enjoy at home...if you're quick.

Home by Nico was launched in April during lockdown, and offering fans of the restaurant a chance to recreate dishes at home for either four or two people – and now it is back.

Themes have included a world tour with: a Greek experience, French Riviera, Chinese fusion and Mexican Fiesta – with menus selling out in minutes for delivery in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Speaking at the launch of the service, chef and owner of Six by Nico, Nico Simeone said: “Many of our customers are missing the ritual of going out to eat but being at home during the isolation period doesn’t have to mean going without the finest restaurant cooking.

“Our new dining experience will allow customers to enjoy unique ready-to-bake meals accompanied by exquisite wines in the comfort of your own home.”

The relaunch

After hinting in July that Home by Nico would be back in the autumn, a date has now been announced for its return, and the menu.

The menu will be Sicily, the current offering at Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh and home cooks will be able to order now for delivery from 27 September until 11 October.

The two person menu is priced and £50 and for more information and to book click here.

What’s on the menuHome by Nico

The home menu has dishes similar to the current Sicily menu, including: arancini, hazelnut ragu, porchetta, aubergine caponata, fregola sarde and Sicilian lemon tart – all washed down with a bottle of The Rambler barbera from Piedmont.

Speaking of his latest menu, chef Nico Simeone said: “In 2018 our team spent time on the Italian Island soaking up the scenery and tasting some of the best food in Europe.

“Raisins and saffron crop up in the island’s most famous dishes, and cooking techniques differ from those found on the mainland.

“As we re-visit this theme in 2020 with a brand new Sicily menu for customers old and new, we look forward to showcasing these inspirations with a flavour-filled menu.”

“From perfect Porchetta to Arancini, Sicilian food is world-famous but many will be very surprised by just how varied and diverse Sicily’s cuisine is – it’s a veritable melting pot of flavour.

“Whilst much of it is clearly Italian, there are some commonly used ingredients that clearly stand out and this is what our guests at Six by Nico will discover on our new menu.”
