Introducing, Verve Real Food Catering’s Dinner Party in a Box


Now that we are in Level 2, we have a lot more freedom and we can finally catch up with the friends and family we’ve been missing while in our bubbles.

Some of us are not quite ready to venture out, or have loved ones who are immune compromised or older but we still want to get together to share a meal and spend time together. Our Dinner Party in a Box will allow you to do that without the hassle of having to do all the cooking!

Our delicious Dinner Party in a Box options are available for parties of  6, 8 or 10 guests. Your meal will  arrive packed in a box, with each dish in oven safe packaging ready for you to simply reheat – don’t worry, we’ll include easy to follow instructions!

Apart from your delicious meal, your box includes:
Canapés & dinner napkins

As always, our food is prepared using the best possible ingredients.  Free range eggs, fresh free range meat from Peter Timbs Butchery and the freshest veggies we can find!
