|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 built a website, 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.|

Over the last six years the business has grown almost entirely organically, thanks to our loyal customers and today we deliver to hundreds of offices and homes across central London.
Our goal is to deliver delicious, handmade meals in a sustainable way. At potage, we believe healthy eating is a balance of quality, quantity and frequency. All our meals are handmade using top quality, fresh ingredients. Our focus is on sourcing the best quality ingredients, portion control and the importance of ‘eating together’ rather than avoiding any particular food groups or counting calories.
