So what do we need to know about Ruth Hansom?
You may well remember her from the first series of the Million Pound Menu in which she and fellow contestant Emily Lambert secured £750k-£1m from backer Atul Kochhar. Ruth also represented the North East in the final of the Great British Menu last year. When not in lockdown, you'll find her in the kitchens at the Princess of Shoreditch gastropub just off Old Street roundabout. While pubs are closed, however, she's developed an at-home menu showcasing her skills with Finish & Feast.
Is this a ready to eat or ready to heat menu?
Mainly the former - really only the main course needs to be cooked. Otherwise, both starter and dessert are essentially plate-up jobs. It all comes handily delivered in three brown bags, marked starter, main and dessert. Very handy if, like us, you've spent a fair bit of time matching pots with relevant courses in other meal kits.
So what's on the menu?
It's a relatively straightforward three-course menu which serves two people. Here's what we had:
Hansom's menu makes relatively simple-sounding dishes into a very elegant dinner at home for two. The flavours are all wonderful and it's also a very easy job to get on to the table. Perfect supper for anyone wanting a nice at-home menu without too much fussing.
