GOLD Award 2015 for Sweet Cumin – Local Food on the Go
I received the feedback from the Judges today and thought I would share the great news:-
‘The quality was amazing and the experience of collecting the meal was not only unique but also educational.
As a keen cook myself I picked up some useful tips. This was outstanding home-cooked Indian food’.
Commitment, perception & communication of local sourcing
This is a truly unique food to go business based in Bini’s home with local sourcing at the heart of all the food; spinach is picked from the garden, home grown chillies, meat from Paul Loader, Radstock, yoghurt from Yeo Valley & oil from Bath Harvest. As this is a home based business the communication of this sourcing is straight from Bini.
Quality of the meal
This is outstanding Gujarati cuisine that rivals the best restaurant dishes. There is a small but interesting menu that is perfectly seasoned with fresh flavours and layer upon layer of spice. The lamb and spinach curry tasted of tender, melting lamb and was fresh with individual ingredient flavours. The flavours build into just the right amount of heat from the chilli. The chicken Moghul curry combined tender chicken with a delicious creamy, but not greasy, sauce. The dhal was both sweet and earthy with the perfect amount of coriander. The samosas were crisp and crunchy on the outside with delicious fillings.
Quality of service
I have never enjoyed collecting a takeaway meal so much! Even before Bini knew I was there on behalf of ToTW I was shown the spinach growing in the garden that was cooked in the lamb curry. I was bowled over by her knowledge and enthusiasm for quality and provenance. I felt welcome and would recommend this ‘takeaway’ to anyone.
Atmosphere, ambience and value for money
It felt like visiting a friend who has prepared a very special meal for you. Bini provides a really unique service which is genuine, home prepared, authentic and delicious. It is worth every penny.
I hope this tantalises your tastes buds to sample Gujarati cuisine for yourselves.
