Friday Night is gourmet takeout night

on Saturday, 05 February 2011. Posted in N21 Business Blog




Why is it that many of the best ideas are so simple? Here is an amazing new business set up by freelance cook Frank Hannon, who is based in East London. Frank is a serious foodie and imaginative cook, who worked for several years in leading restaurants such as The River Cafe before setting up his own business.

A few months ago he set up Friday Night Takeout, offering high quality home cooked seasonal meals for people  in his local area who are too tired to cook. He posts the dish of the week on his blog, uses email, Facebook and Twitter to alert people to what he will be cooking that week. Like other new food businesses featured on n21online, he tries to use quality, local ingredients wherever possible.

This week Frank served chicken in white wine and black olives with orecchiette; earlier in the month his hearty seasonal creations included ham hock and assorted vegetables and baked butter beans, fennel, spinach and chorizo. They are priced at around £8.50 - £9.50, no more than you would pay for a conventional Chinese, Indian or fish & chips on a Friday night. Frank started with his family and friends but word has soon got out and his business is growing across the London Fields, Shoreditch and south Hackney areas. Frank delivers between 5pm and 7.30pm on Friday evening.

The other beauty of Frank’s concept is that there is no waste. Everyone pre-orders during the week. Another great idea to bring to N21?  Frank is happy to share his experiences with anyone interested in his idea. This email address is being protected from spambots.
