Winter is served at Youfoodz, with a mission to make a difference.
Winter has landed, and the new seasonal menu from Youfoodz is all about those hearty Winter classic flavours with ten new meals, three new snacks and a brand-new juice - including vegan and vegetarian options.
About slowing down and rugging up, Winter is hearty, indulgent and all about the food! As things cool down, Youfoodz are serving up comfort food worth staying in for. The best part? It’s all delivered direct to your door.
Winter will also see the return of Youfoodz’s famous Flamin’ Chicken. Feedback is important, and the customers have spoken - Flamin’ Chicken is back by popular demand, but for a limited time only.
Taking inspiration from classic, hearty flavours, Youfoodz Chef’s Aaron, Jimmy, and Marty have created a perfectly curated Winter menu selection that is sure to hit the spot.
A risotto class in Venice in 2014 was the inspiration behind the Creamy Truffle Mushroom Risotto, explains Marty. “This dish is very close to my heart. Mushroom and truffle is a match made in heaven, and with the addition of walnut to add that much needed textural crunch when indulging in any risotto!”
With a focus on creating something for the Youfoodz vegans and vegetarians, the Loaded Lentil Lasagne was created. “Coming from a European background, I used vegetables and lentils for proteins and flavour in-between pasta sheets with a delicious tomato herb pasta sauce, something we hope all of our customers will appreciate” said Jimmy. “Big flavour inspired by bringing classic dishes to life using vegetables.”
When creating the Beef Rissoles with Mushroom Sauce & Chips, for chef Aaron it was about coming back to basics and taking inspiration from a family recipe. “I come from a family of fantastic cooks and was spoiled for flavours and cuisine growing up. Trained as a chef I can cook anything, but for me it was a simple classic that I wanted to create. Inspired by my grandmother’s recipe of ground beef, vegetables and seasoning napped with a rich tangy sauce, served with oven-baked chips and broccoli - the perfect Winter warmer for me.”
Classic flavours to nourish from the inside out, the Winter ready-made meal range from Youfoodz includes:
• Creamy Truffle Mushroom Risotto • Slow-Cooked Lamb with Loaded Mash • Teriyaki Chicken & Fried Rice • Chicken & Chorizo Pasta • Thai Green Chicken Curry • Hearty Mince & Potato Bake • Loaded Lentil Lasagne • Pumpkin & Feta Pasta Salad • Beef Rissoles with Mushroom Sauce & Chips • Flamin’ Chicken
As well as new snacks: White Choc Blondie Bite, Choc Brownie Bite, and Savoury Cheese Bites. Winter also sees a Winter Warrior YOUJUICE added to the menu.
Beyond delicious food, this Winter, Youfoodz is on a mission to make a difference. For those most vulnerable in the community, Winter is the harshest time of year.
