Yay! This is great news, and seeing as we are out of alcohol now, we may as well enjoy some great food instead, right? Chef Luke Dale Roberts has launched delivery of gourmet lockdown food hampers in Cape Town and Johannesburg to keep our tummies happy!
The LDR Gourmet Lockdown Hampers offering is already available in Cape Town and commences in Johannesburg from the week beginning May 18th.
It features three choices, with each hamper designed as a weekly basket of goods, providing the focal point for multiple meals. The gourmet lockdown hampers are priced at R1800, R3000 and R5000 respectively and exclude a delivery charge per order. The hampers are available via daily delivery on Mondays through to Sundays in Cape Town including the Winelands areas of Paarl, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Somerset West as well as once a week in Johannesburg.
Luke Dale Roberts will feature some of his favourite classics such as duck and pork belly country pate, beef bourguignon, juniper and citrus cured salmon gravadlax, navarin of lamb shank along with various cheeses and sweet options, with rose-scented meringues, Luke’s trifle and chocolate fondants the perfect treats at any time of the day.
“The current lockdown has engulfed many special events, with birthdays, anniversaries and more having to be spent at home. As we continue along this indefinite path, we have tried to create hampers that combine both every day, as well as unique and speciality items that will serve to make every meal a little more special, for any occasion.”
“As we all know, the hospitality industry has been wrecked by COVID-19 and its subsequent economic fallout, and we at LDR are doing everything in our power to keep people employed, starting with our employees, and continuing along our supply chains. As such, this venture is a not-for-profit endeavour, with the sole purpose of keeping our employee’s livelihoods intact and buying time until we find out what the new normal of the South African restaurant industry will become”, comments Dale Roberts.
Apart from keeping his considerable staff complement employed, Dale Roberts also prepares an evening meal, daily, for forty (40) persons at The Haven Night Shelter in Cape Town.
