Blog instalment - January 2021
Happy new year guys, wow 2021 already. What a strange year 2020 turned out to be for everyone.
Our last blog was way back in April last year and since then we have had so much happen.
First up it’s been amazing to finally be experiencing what it’s like to be a parent, it’s the best job in the world (bar none) our wee man Arthur is the best thing to have ever happened to both of us and one of the reasons 2020 hasn’t been all that bad 😊
We had the chance to work with the folks over at the amazing Kind Kitchen, delivering our food to those that need it most in the community. By working alongside food banks and community support hubs the Kind Kitchen worked tirelessly to feed so many people who had been affected by lockdown.
It’s been a very humbling experience for us and we are so glad that we managed to contribute to the great work they did 🧡
Our meal kits have also been a fantastic success! As it’s grown bigger we have developed the kits and tweaked them here and there, introducing many more options for you to try out.
We’ve also listened to feedback from you lovely lot too and have added ideas like kids options and build your own dessert kits to the choices so now there is even more choice for everyone. We will continue to listen to feedback on what you guys are looking for in the kits and will do our best to refine them even more in the coming months.
Although most of 2020 was lockdown for us we still managed to get out and about with Ronnie and the gazebo for a few fun events. We managed to get over to Glasgow and catch up with our friends at Big Feed which is always amazing, we served up loads of hungry cinema goers at the parking lot social in Dalkeith Park in the summer and only last month we managed to get out at the annual Edinburgh Christmas Trail at The Botanics. It was the second year for us trading here and it was as much fun as the first year we attended!
It’s been nice to have still had a few things to look forward to during all the doom and gloom of lockdown and our philosophy is you should always look for the good in every situation which is what we have done throughout.
Winning the virtual Scottish Street Food award 2020 was a great way to end the year on a high too and having Ronnie our Citroen as one of the finalists in The British Street Food Awards “best looking food truck” category was another highlight to the year!
Going forward who knows what this year is going to bring for everyone and the hospitality industry but we are looking on it as optimistic. We have a plan A, B and even a C and D if needed so we will be keeping busy in some sort of capacity however it all pans out.
Regardless of what happens expect to see a lot of new fun ideas that we plan on rolling out along the way. Stay safe and well and hopefully we can all catch up at an event sometime in the very near future!
Liam, Beth, Arthur and Ronnie
