Fellow friend and artist Jessica Yolanda Kaye is the mastermind behind the cool branding – plus, for each bottle sold, £1 is donated to charity.
Made By You Bao Kits
BAO Made by You is the new at-home kit concept from the trio behind BAO London. Priced at £20 per box, each kit contains six ready to steam bao buns, as well as all the extra ingredients. We love the Classic BAO Box, which comes with 12-hour braised pork, fermented greens and iconic peanut dust, and the Daikon BAO box, which features the same individual panko daikon that made the restaurant dish an instant bestseller.

Gail's At Home Range
At the start of lockdown, Gail's launched their At Home range to continue to support its communities.

Today, Gail's is launching the next phase in their At Home range. The Gail's Hampers range consists of six carefully curated gift boxes; ”Breakfast In Bed”, ”Farmhouse Breakfast” “Cookie Box”, “Sofa Picnic”, “Cake Box” and a “Cream Tea Box”. Every bundle will include a Gail’s tote bag and a notecard for customers to use or if the box is being gifted, for a customer to request a note to be written on.

You can pre-order recipe kits and chef’s table type meals from your favourite restaurants too, with one donated to a Londoner in need via the Plate For London scheme for each one sold.

Pollen + Grace
A modern-day food service run by nutrition experts, Pollen + Grace has collaborated with The Doctor’s Kitchen to highlight healthier food choices which will nourish the nation.

Plus, the complexity of juniper and citrus gives it a clean and crisp taste. Convenient and refreshing, the new launch comes ready to drink in a 250ml glass bottle or can be poured over ice with a wedge of lime and sliced fresh ginger.
Ten Acre's new hand-picked popcorn range comes in two flavours.

Made in the UK, Ten Acre popcorn is also gluten, dairy and MSG free – so it's great for feeding a crowd.
