Posh Vegan was due to launch on Tuesday 24th March 2020, the day after the UK went into lockdown.
So, that plan was scrapped!
It has taken me a few weeks to get my head round adapting to our current circumstances. It has also given me the opportunity to recipe test a lot of new ideas....I fear I will definitely be in the "I gained 1/2 a stone in Lockdown" club, if there is such a thing!
I was thinking about adaptability over the weekend and I remembered an anonymous quote I read a while ago-
“A wise man adapts himself to circumstances as water shapes itself to the vessel that contains it.”
So, I had a think about what adapting means for Posh Vegan and came up with this-
- Embrace being comfortable with uncertainty.
- Know my customers and how their needs might have changed.
- How can I add value in the current circumstances.
The people I love to cook for love good food. That hasn't changed.....in fact I am delighted that so many people are starting to cook more from scratch and try recipes that they previously didn't have time to do.
The people I love to cook for love having special food for celebrations and going out to dinner.
The people I love to cook for are still having Birthdays and celebrations during Lockdown!
And so, on Thursday 23rd April, I am starting to take orders for doorstep delivery three course meals, to people in the Bath, Glastonbury and surrounding areas so they can continue to celebrate their special occasions, Vegan-stylie! From Wednesday my utility room will be awash with boxes!
I have put sample menus up, but please do get in touch if you have a fancy for something else and I will do my best to accommodate.
I have also clued up on the latest Covid-19 Food Hygiene, thanks to a friend in the industry. Currently there is nothing to show that food handing will transfer the virus, and rest assured I follow the highest hygiene standards at all times anyway.
I am also awaiting sample packaging for Vegan Afternoon Tea boxes, which will become a "thing" as soon as I have found suitable containers to deliver it in......more information to follow.
I look forward to delivering delicious food to a doorstep near you soon......complete with re-heating instructions and some presentation tips ♥
