Graeme and Jody, founders of The Original Supper Box Co. on how they came up with the idea:
“Good food has always been at the centre of our lives. As a professional chef, Jody has spent 15 years in profesional kitchens honing his skills and learning new and innovative techniques. Having cooked for celebrities and royalty Jody’s vision is to bring a little bit of fine dining to your homes.
Working in marketing, Graeme has worked with some of the UK’s leading brands, but has always been a ‘foodie’ at heart.
“Having 11 brothers and sisters we know that good food is best enjoyed in the company of family and friends. But we also know that sourcing the right ingredients can be less fun.
“So we sat down with pencils and notepad and identified all the things that irk and irritate us when hosting a special meal.
“Like supermarkets that don’t stock the right ingredients.
Shelling out for a kilo of Puy lentils when you only need 30 grams. And dashing home from work with 20 minutes to get to the shops before guests arrive and not being able to easily find top quality ingredients.
“Having 11 brothers and sisters we know that good food is best enjoyed in the company of family and friends.”
“Then it hit us – why not provide a service that delivers fantastic, fresh, mouth-watering ingredients pre-weighed and measured with simple-to-follow recipe cards direct to your door?
“One full notepad later,The Original Supper Box Co. was born.
“We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!”
