In the third week of March, Caiger & Co, like many other small businesses, experienced their hardest week yet. However, to keep cooking, the team and I created a new product for those who were isolating. We began cooking luxury freezer meals. Out with furniture hire, in with route planning. By July we delivered around 650 suppers. We even delivered a aubergine parmigiana to National Treasure Sir David Attenborough.
We soon switched it up & began experimenting with different menus for your lockdown date nights. Our lobster rolls with whipped dashi butter & homemade brioche went down very well. We think these would be a perfect snack for a Spring wedding with a glass of champagne. Chin Chin!
‘Your BBQ and veg boxes got me through the last lockdown’. We loved creating these weekend BBQ & roast boxes each Friday night for our loyal customers. We delivered about two hundred of these. You loved our Sicilian boxes, but it was the tacos that really caught your eye.
Lockdown for us meant early mornings at our unit in Brentford. Luckily we have the best neighbours who supplied us with pastries & coffee. Rye by the Water and their master baker Janine baked up the stuff of dreams this year. We included their sourdough in your deliveries (nearly two hundred of them), around three hundred and sixty croissants, and one hundred and fifty hot cross buns. Thank you team!
Our seasonal hampers this year were another chance to get creative. The almond witches fingers in our Halloween hampers were spooky delicious. The mulled wine was nourishing & turns out you all love sparklers.
From breakfast press launches to pizza making workshops, cookie decorating classes & chocolate truffle workshops. We’ve done it all in these last few months & now consider ourselves experts in the world of virtual events.
December will be remembered as the month of cardboard boxes, of sourdough baguettes piled high, and bottles upon bottles of Black Lines cocktails. All being sent to addresses across the UK for virtual Christmas parties.
