It’s been a tough year for the hospitality industry what with guidelines and restrictions often changing at a day’s notice. Fortunately, many restaurants were able to pivot to launch meal kits that are delivered in the post so that customers can still enjoy top-notch food at home and such has been the success of these, that many are now offering Mother’s Day menus for March.
We all need a little something to look forward to at the moment and from heart-shaped pasta to afternoon tea, these meal kits are sure to put a smile on your mum’s face. Plus, the hard work has already been done for you!
