I have always loved food and the way it brings people together.
I started potage with £1,000 savings in October 2012 and for the first year worked 7 days a week, doing everything myself. I cooked from my mum’s kitchen, delivered locally on a bicycle and had a Saturday stall outside Books for Cooks in Notting Hill. To launch potage, I sent out an email with a weekly menu to 15 local friends and family in October 2012. There was no minimum order and only one pot on the menu each day. In the first week I did 7 deliveries and £101 total sales.
Today we deliver breakfast, lunch and dinner to hundreds of homes and offices across central London.
Our healthy eating philosophy
At potage, we believe healthy eating is a balance of quality, quantity and frequency, and each person's diet varies depending on their own activity level, nutritional needs and goals. All our meals are handmade by our cooks in small batches, just as you would at home and our focus is on sourcing top quality ingredients, portion control and the importance of ‘eating well together’.
In nutrition, diet is the sum of food consumed by a person or other organism and whilst our dietary habits can help nourish our bodies and manage weight it’s only one part of the pyramid that makes up a healthy lifestyle; enjoying food with others, being active and getting enough sleep are all important for physical and mental well-being.
Our sustainability promise
Whatever we are doing, as a team we always work with the environment in mind.
1. Locally and responsibly sourced ingredients
2. Minimal packaging that’s widely recyclable, reusable or home compostable
3. Zero food waste
