The Spring Solstice on March 21st heralds rebirth from the darkness of winter so it is fitting that this is the date that the award-winning Chef and Restaurateur Breda Murphy will launch her restaurant-quality frozen ready meal delivery service.

A champion of British and Irish cuisine, Breda’s professional pedigree assures the customer of exquisite quality and flavour. Trained by Darina Allen at Cork’s Ballymaloe Cookery School followed by spells at both Kensington Place and Sally Clarke’s in London, she then headed north to become head chef at the prestigious Inn at Whitewell often frequented by royalty, dignitaries and stars of screen and stage. Breda then established her renowned Ribble Valley restaurant and deli in 2006 which has won multiple awards and entry into the Michelin, Hardens and Good Food Guide.

Customers will be able to choose any combination of signature dishes, tempting classics, cakes, desserts and seasonal favourites from her website for delivery across the country. Whether feeding the family, stocking the freezer or entertaining at home, restaurant-quality meals at home can be summoned with a few clicks of a finger. Customers have the option to select single portion boxes (£55), double portion boxes (£100), or mixed size potions (£120), making these an easy alternative to your weekly shop. Each dish will remain perfectly fresh in the freezer for over three months, giving customers extra flexibility and reducing unnecessary food waste. The first 50 customers will receive a special homemade token of thanks from Breda and the team.  

Breda’s husband and four children are the mainstay of her life and as a busy mother she really does know the value of having delicious and nutritious meals in the freezer, ready to serve up quickly and without fuss. The concept of turning her delicious restaurant dishes into frozen meals delivered directly to the customer was conceived during the turmoil of the pandemic.

Breda will also be offering regular seasonal boxes available for pre order, with the first being the Family Easter Box (£110 serves 4), included in the box are two double traditional Irish Stews, with meltingly soft lamb, sweet carrots, potatoes and pearl barley, two double signature Fish Pies, two double Gooseberry and Apple crumbles for a seasonal dessert, a Lemon and Elderflower Loaf and a tray of gooey Mini Egg Brownies.

In her own words, “My ethos has always been to create tasty, wholesome, loving food with a twist made from the finest and responsibly sourced ingredients. I now have the pleasure of sending my restaurant to your home. I hope you enjoy!”
