Based in Cirencester, specialist events and hospitality caterers Relish has launched a new initiative - Relish Online - in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This new foodie platform allows customers to buy delicious produce direct from the Relish HQ kitchens in Cirencester, including their favourite Relish cakes and bakes, delicious ready meals, afternoon tea packages, platters, buffets, BBQ boxes, staycation hampers and locally sourced groceries including a wide range of store cupboard provisions.

“At the start of lockdown, every part of our events business evaporated leaving only a tiny team to prepare thousands of meals for NHS staff and frontline workers in the Covid wards at Cheltenham & Gloucester Hospitals in association with the charity, Food4Heroes. Building on the success of this initiative, we decided to create an online version of our

catering menus delivered directly to people’s homes,” said Relish director, Robert Goves.

“Initially, we were catering for families and vulnerable people in extended lockdown, but as demand started to build and some Covid restrictions started to lift, we began to cater for smaller family gatherings.

"We have subsequently ensured our offers accommodate the changing guidelines on group numbers and tailored our packages accordingly. Relish Online can offer the full catering experience for small weddings of 30, as well as cater for family or friends’ celebrations for groups of six each time using fresh local produce to create delicious, chef-crafted dishes.”

Rob is passionate about responding to changing times whilst still offering catering packages that reflect the activities and marketplace of the Cotswolds.

He is excited to share the news that the newest addition to the Relish Online menu is a range of deliciously easy Shoot Packages designed to be delivered straight to the shooting lodge.

From cold platters ready to serve, hot dishes ready to reheat and a host of desserts, cakes and snacks to choose from, it really couldn’t be easier to fully cater for your special day!”

The Relish Online Cook at Home range of ready meals uses Relish’s own recipes showcasing the best locally sourced produce available.

Relish Online’s Cook at Home menu includes irresistible family favourites such as Fennel & Chili Pork Polpette, Aubergine

& Courgette Bake and Cotswold Lamb Tagine.

To follow, a range of gorgeous restaurant style desserts including Chocolate Mascarpone Cheesecake, Sticky Date and Ginger Pudding, British Berry Pavlova and Belgian Chocolate Brownies available in individual, couple, family and larger groups portion sizes.

To accompany this, Relish Online also offers a range of well-chosen Old and New World and English wines, Cotswold Brew beers and lagers, soft drinks and bottled waters.

Perfect for parties, celebrations and picnics, Relish Online also offers a tempting range of showstopper celebration cakes and traybakes including its Taste of the West award-winning Brownies.
