Dining at Home

Thinking Inside the Box

I can hardly contain my excitement! It’s been almost one year since the global pandemic started to re-shape our lives. Eating out is a treat I really miss.

My phone does that thing where it decides to display photographs from the same date one year ago and images of stunning food (in a London restaurant) were reminding me of what I had been missing these last twelve months.

With no immediate end to our current way of life in sight and with tantalising emails arriving from my favourite restaurants in London and Edinburgh offering home delivery, I felt rather envious of those who live within their catchment areas. Not to be thwarted, a little online research revealed that a highly-regarded local restaurant was also providing a dine-at-home option.

Quite why I hadn’t already visited House of Tides is something I can’t explain. It has been a missed opportunity. Now however, even in these days of “lockdown”, I had the chance to sample the handiwork of chef Kenny Atkinson and his team.

Look out for the upcoming review of this House of Tides @Home meal.
