How does The Host's Pantry work?
STEP ONE: CREATE YOUR MENU
Choose from our seasonal selection of set menus, you can have as many (or as few) courses as you like. Remember, you will be cooking your dishes from scratch and so we recommend (where possible) to choose the same dish per course.
STEP TWO: HOME DELIVERY
At checkout select your delivery date. Your delivery date should be the day before your hosting experience, this will ensure that you have plenty of preparation time and that you have everything you need for your meal. You can book up to 8 weeks in advance. We currently deliver Tuesday – Friday.
STEP THREE: PREPARE YOUR DISHES
As part of the The Host’s Pantry experience, we help you manage the preparation and serving of your dishes with a ‘hosting guide’. Inside your hosting guide we break down the tasks, giving you a timeline so you can plan your meal effectively. Your first job will be to start your preparation tasks to ensure you’re as ready as you can be before your guests arrive, this will mean that you can spend as much time as possible with your guests during the meal.
STEP FOUR: WELCOME YOUR GUESTS
This is where the fun starts, at this point everything for your meal is as ready as it can be, the table is set, the drinks are chilling and it’s time to welcome your guests.
STEP FIVE: SERVE YOUR DISHES
Again, inside your hosting guide we will lead you through the ‘serving’ process, finishing your dishes and making sure the different elements come together harmoniously, don’t worry about the timings between courses, we’ll help you with it all.
