The Cornerstone Kitchen, an independent catering company based in Sutton Coldfield, has launched a brand new fine dining experience that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.
The Fine Dining Delivery service, which is delivered to customer’s homes with simple reheating instructions, will fill the void left by the Covid-19 lockdown for those who are missing the pleasure of dining out.
All of the produce featured in the three courses and canapé selection, which is all homemade by their chefs, is sourced locally, using seasonal ingredients, free range products, organic vegetables and sustainable fish. Vegan and vegetarian options are available for guests to choose.
Like so many companies working within the hospitality industry, The Cornerstone Kitchen, who specialise in creating bespoke dining experiences for private parties, events and weddings, had to rethink how they could continue to deliver their gourmet food experience to their customers during the second national lockdown.
Although the chefs are not able to be there to prepare the dinner, the team has made the experience as smooth-running as possible for customers with each course only requiring a simple reheat.
Starters include Pan Seared Welsh Lamb Kofta and Heritage Beetroot with Whipped Goats Cheese, whilst Mains include Pressed Pork Belly with Black Pudding and Apple and Sage Slaw, along with Roasted Aubergine Gratin for a vegan option. Desserts are sure to delight with classics on offer, including Banoffee Pie and Treacle Tart.
The launch of their fine dining delivery service comes after a busy period for The Cornerstone Kitchen. Following the cancellations of weddings and events at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, its Founder and Director James Gilhooley and Head Chef Daniel Gould put their culinary skills and spare time to good use and began volunteering at St James Church in Sutton Coldfield. James and Dan were soon cooking two-course meals for up to 130 vulnerable people each week, including elderly people and children who missed out on free school dinners.
Their dedication and hard work was acknowledged by being nominated for the Lord Mayor’s Award for their service to the community. In addition, Cornerstone Kitchen have also been nominated for the special Queen’s award for volunteer services during the lockdown.
Charity work has always been at the heart of The Cornerstone Kitchen’s ethos. James began his charity endeavours in 2016 when he built kitchens for two orphanages in Kenya, both being named The Cornerstone Kitchens.
With Christmas in sight, the team has also launched a line of luxurious Christmas Hampers, which make a unique gift for friends, loved ones, clients and colleagues. The festive hampers are filled with homemade gourmet products and come in three sizes, starting at £35, and can be personalized with gift tags.
All of the delicious produce is sourced locally and includes Sparkling Gavi la Battistina, Lichfield tea, gourmet cheese cleaver, a selection of homemade oils, homemade fudge, homemade muesli, selection of homemade jams, selection of homemade chutneys and crackers from the fine cheese company.
