Test Driving Cafe Murano delivery - Angela Hartnett's pasta-to-go service

cafe murano delivery londonHere's what a care package from Angela Hartnett looks like.

So this is Angela Hartnett moving into the food-to-go business?

It certainly is. While her Michelin-starred restaurant Murano remains closed, she's reopened her newest Cafe Murano down in Bermondsey as a collection and delivery business.

Wait, so she's actually cooking there?

Indeed she is - along with her team. So, for the time being, you have the chance to order a meal delivery which will have one of the country's top chefs making you amazing pasta dishes.

Is it just pasta?

The focus is certainly pasta, but there's also a grocery delivery service too. Along with your meal you could get in fresh Amalfi lemons, 24 month Parmesan for grating over your pasta, or some excellent Piedmontese salame.

Here's what we ordered:

What about something to drink?

There's a good selection of exclusively Italian wines, including Angela's own label which includes a Bianco, Rose and Rosso - all for £19. We had the Rosso - a Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon which was just the ticket with that lasagne.

Anything else we ought to know about?

Look out for the regularly changing weekly guest chef's special - the first two have been from Valentine Warner and Hicce's Pip Lacey.
