I am always on the look-out for special prezzies for those lovely lady friends of mine who are about to have babies. Recently a friend recommended The Mount Street Deli Baby Box, and so I decided to order it for a friend. The Baby Box is such a great idea. It comes with an assortment of goodies including adorable baby onesies that are wrapped up to look like cupcakes, and baby socks that are made to look like an ice-cream cone. But the best part of this hamper is definitely the culinary treats from all of the Caprice Group restaurants.
If you are a fellow-mom you know that the first several weeks you and your newborn are basically restricted to your house- trying to figure each other out, while getting no sleep. There is definitely no time to cook, or prepare snacks for your well-wishing visitors. So the Baby Box includes Postcard Earl Grey Tea, Mount Street Deli Honeycomb chocolate and homemade Granola, Lavender Shortbread from 34, assorted chocolate truffles made at Scott’s restaurant, speciality honey and Ouse Valley Raspberry Jam.
However, the best part of the Mount Street Deli Baby Box is the “First-Week-at-Home-Take-Away-Dinners” Gift Card. This entitled the recipient to take some of your favourite dishes from our restaurants home with you. (Ah, hem. Send the Husband to pick them up.) The menu includes, The Ivy shepherd’s pie, Le Caprice salmon fishcake, Daphne’s meatballs, J Sheekey fish pie, Bam-Bou green chicken curry and rice, The Mount Street Deli lasagne, and Daphne’s parmigiana as main dishes. For dessert you can choose from Daphne’s tiramisu, The Ivy seasonal fruit crumble with custard, Scott’s Bramley apple pie with custard, 34’s slow baked vanilla cheesecake with griotte cherries and cherry sauce or The Mount Street Deli lemon meringue tart! Each dish serves 2 people.
The Baby Box also includes a gift card for tea and cake for two people at the Mount Street Deli. A perfect “first-outing” for a new mom!
