Imagine this – it’s 6pm, you have at least another hours work to do and nothing in the fridge. And even if there was, the thought of cooking when you get in is a step too far. Take aways are expensive and not very healthy and you’re on a mission to get the family to get their five a day. What to do?
Now imagine this – you have a cooking fairy Godmother /father who lives right around the corner and has cooked up a huge batch of veg curry, complete with home made nan and cucumber raita. Not in the mood for that, well there’s another domestic Goddess a couple of streets away who’s prepared a family sized Lasagne, with a crunchy side salad – and all you have to do is log onto a website, pick a dish, pay with a card and pick up your dinner on the way home.
No this is not a dream, its an actual thing and it’s called Dish Next Door – although annoyingly (for everyone else, but not me) for now, it’s only in E8/N16. But if my instinct serves me well, it won’t be long before it spreads to other parts of London and the rest of the country.
I love how technology brings people together and brings great ideas to life. Dish Next Door is like Uber for food and I for one am going to be making full use of the huge variety of talented home cooks from every corner of the world who live on my doorstep.
