Chefs and makers around Canberra have been letting locals in on all the best recipes and techniques so we can recreate dining experiences we are desperately missing at home.

Here’s a few to try:

Les Bistronomes

The latest venture from the Les Bistonomes team – Un Dîner pour Deux (A dinner for two) to create a 3-course meal at home.  The package includes a freshly backed baguette, charcuterie for entree, a signature main (such as the beef wellington prepped and ready for you to bake) and a French dessert. Each pack comes with a menu card and link to a cooking video from Chef Clement Chauvin on how to finish your meal yourself.

Chef Fransceso is making life a little easier with his meals designed to cook at home – Agostinis in Casa! Order online for In Casa Meal Kits and staples from their very own Italian Grocer. Some of the delicious dishes include arancini, half baked pizzas that you can finish off in your oven and melt-in-your-mouth osso buco with polenta! Finish this off with Agostinis’ Tiramisu and cannoli and you’re sorted! The meal kits change weekly.

Three Mills Bakery

Bake-at-home sausage rolls available in four flavours. Delivered to your door (frozen). And, bake-at-home Chocolate Croissants. Absolutely awesome for entertaining kids at home. Leave the frozen croissants on the bench when you go to bed so they puff up overnight – Egg wash the tops in the morning and bake until the pastry turns crispy and buttery with a gooey chocolate middle.

Delivered 6 days a week – Ready to bake!
