BEST FOR: Something different
There are several brunch options on offer from Dishoom – but all with a quintessential cultural twist on an otherwise English classic.

With chai spices and loose-leaf tea, it also offers you the chance to make Dishoom chai tea for two. If you’re vegan, there are variations on the kit available, as well as a chance to throw in some marmalade mimosas if it happens to be a special occasion.

BEST FOR: Local produce
Enjoy a full Cornish breakfast at home with all the ingredients you need to serve either one hearty brunch for two or a few special breakfasts for one. Available for delivery across the UK, the box includes ingredients to whip up scrambled eggs with bacon, sausage sandwiches and even a full Cornish. Paired with Stein’s favourite coffee from Origin, all suppliers are local to Cornwall – including Tywardreath Butchers, St Ewe Eggs, Coombeshead Farm and Trewithen Dairy – which explains why ingredients may vary depending on availability and seasonality.
BEST FOR: Traditionalists
If you’re keen to have a go putting something together yourself, the Original Make-At-Home Brunch Box from Le Swine comes highly recommended. Designed to feed four people, the kit contains bacon, buns, homemade ketchups, bloody mary mix and olives. Plus, even though you have the option to select your delivery date at checkout, everything in the kit keeps for up to five days, so you can use it on a day and at a time that suits you best.
Delivery: Nationwide, between 8am-8pm

Otherwise, expect to find the company’s signature organic flour mix, 100% pure Canadian maple syrup, butter, milk, eggs, streaky bacon, blueberries, bananas and a full recipe card inside. Plus, there’s the option to add extra halloumi or vegan bacon if you wish.
