Trufflehound launches Dining Club

Trufflehound Catering has announced the launch of a new service, Dining Club, offering fine dining meals delivered to your door. Each week a new menu will be unveiled on Friday with two or three-course options for either £40 or £45. (Local delivery is free. No minimum order). Clients will have the weekend to consider their selection before placing an order on Tuesday (aka Chooseday) for delivery three days later on Friday.

Each delivery comes with preparation guidance (minimal effort required) and can be eaten either that day or on the Saturday. All the food is prepared using fresh ingredients supplied by local independent retailers – meat from Mackens Bros and fish and shellfish from Covent Garden Fishmongers.

A safe alternative to eating out

Jo Buckingham, owner and chef, has a loyal following in Chiswick and continues to provide a full service with chef and waiter in clients’ homes, to small groups of up to four people, to meet Covid restrictions.

She sees the new Dining Club as a safe alternative to eating out with the added benefits of not paying restaurant prices for a bottle of wine, or having to shell out for a taxi and not having to finish by 10.00 pm.

Trufflehound will be working with Tim Syrad Wines, who specialise in half bottles of wine. Each week he will be suggesting wine pairings to accompany their Dining Club menu. By specialising in half bottles clients can enjoy a different wine with each course. Dining Club clients can arrange to have wine delivered from Tim together with their food delivery.

Here’s this week’s menu, to order on Tuesday 13 October for delivery on Friday 16 October
