It may still be more difficult to eat out at the moment but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy restaurant quality food. Here are some of our favourite places to get a luxury takeaway this month
WHAT: Breakfast, brunch and lunch
WHERE: Thyme Kitchen, Lichfield
From soups and sandwiches to coffees and cakes, brunch eaterie Thyme Kitchen is offering a full takeaway service.
If you’ve been hankering after a full English (but not the washing up afterwards) then this is the place for you.
We can heartily recommend their Persian eggs (the prettiest poached eggs team J’AIME have ever seen) and the luxury hot chocolate that is so substantial it’s practically a meal in itself.
WHAT: A testing menu prepared by an award-winning chef
WHERE: Sauce Supper Club, delivered to your home
You don’t even need to step outside your front door to enjoy amazing food created by one of the best chefs in the Midlands (and we’re not talking about your other half).
You can order a Sauce Supper Club menu online and have it delivered to your doorstep. It’s as simple as that.
The food, created by chef Tom Shepherd, is available for home delivery from Thursday to Sunday each week.
WHAT: Delicious fresh bakes
WHERE: On The Bread Line, Four Oaks
The delicious aromas hit your nostrils long before you step into Sebastian Clough’s independent bakery.
We’re talking seriously fragrant, freshly baked bread, cakes, pastries and tarts – our mouths are watering just at the thought of it.
A professionally trained baker with French pastry skills, Sebastian has been working hard throughout both lockdowns to keep delicious treats on tables right across the region.
WHAT: Cakes and bakes
WHERE: Noms From Tom, Burntwood
Established just last year as a hobby for keen home baker Tom, Noms From Tom has quickly turned into a full-time business.
Tom’s specials include weekly lucky dip sweet treat boxes containing five randomly selected slices of brownies, blondies and traybakes. The postal boxes ‘go live’ every Sunday evening and usually sell out quickly.
He also makes the sort of special occasion cakes that are almost too beautiful to actually eat.
WHAT: Deli and freshly prepared food
WHERE: Pom’s Kitchen and Deli, Lichfield
Not only can you get a take out of delicious breakfast, brunch or lunch from Pom’s Kitchen, you can also stock up your fridge and pantry at the deli.
Fresh, locally sourced produce is the key here – for both the kitchen and the deli alike.
You can pick up everything from teabags to ketchup and from luxury dog treats to a bottle of gin – and buy your lunch and a coffee to go at the same time.
WHAT: Takeaway meals, fresh produce and more
WHERE: Strawberryfields Farm and Coffee Shop, Burntwood
From pizzas to fish and chips to Sunday roast baps, the good folk at Strawberryfields have been cooking up all manner of delicious meals for people to take away.
The beauty of this place is that you can also pick up pretty much everything you could need for a weekly shop at the same time.
There’s always a tempting array of fruit and vegetables, much of which is grown on the farm
