Chef Frank Hannon, alumnus of The River Café and Moro, has launched a Friday night takeout service for east London foodies. Orders are taken via text and email at the start of the week. On Friday, he cooks a casserole-style dish featuring the week’s best seasonal produce and delivers them on the evening. Customers only have to heat it up to enjoy a restaurant-quality meal in the comfort of their own home.

With meals priced around £9, this takeout service is sure to interest cash-strapped gourmet types. Adding to the appeal, of course, is the sense of tapping into a professional chef’s personal, home creations.
