Friday afternoon last week I was delivered a Menu Del Dia box from Movida to my house in Paraparap. There are a few different boxes to choose from. First thing I did was crack open a bottle of Austins Cuvee whilst I contemplated how I would plate this delectable feast. Why not get a little bit fancy whilst in lockdown! Cue swapping my cap for a chef’s hat and the trackies for something a little more sleek…
What was in the Menu Del Dia
What was in this delicious bag of tricks? A lot. I felt like Mary Poppins!
I ordered the Menu Del Dia with matching Austins Wines $220 (valued at $340). This box was filled to the brim and fit for a king (or queen!). Enough to feed 4 people in one sitting or if you are a couple you should have dinner covered for the whole weekend!

How I prepared the food…
These meals were so easy to put together. To start I served up the jamon, olives and bread alongside some of the cheeses from our Austins cheese and wine packs on a nice wooden chopping block. I charred the bread and rubbed with tomato and garlic AKA Pan Con Tomate. This is a really great way to serve that melt in your mouth Jamon Iberico.
For the main event, I simply filled a large pot with water and allowed the hot dishes to simmer in their cryovaced packages for 15mins or until hot. You can also heat in a pan however this requires more washing up and I wasn’t interested in doing too many dishes. It was date night after all!
Wash all of this down with some delicious wine and BOOM. You have just created the perfect little love-in at home.
I don’t expect you will be in bed with just your laptop this Friday if you know what I mean….
