We absolutely love the new name, recipes and website from Yorkshire Recipe Box specialists Born and Bred. Previously named Snap! the team led by brothers Charles and Geoff Allen have been delivering Yorkshire Holiday Boxes to Gorgeous Cottages throughout the county over the last few months.
They have just had a great new re-brand which thinks really befits the fact that Charles and Geoff along with their fabulous local suppliers are from right here in God’s Own County (that’s Yorkshire in case you were wondering). We think their new Born and Bred Holiday Boxes make the perfect addition to any Gorgeous Cottages break!
Local food heroes
Born and Bred works with more than 60 Yorkshire suppliers to ensure you’ll enjoy farm shop quality food in their recipes – there are no mass-produced supermarket items in these fresh holiday boxes.
From cheese to chorizo (yes there really is a Yorkshire Chorizo), the ingredients have been produced in our favourite county and we love the fact everything is fresh, local and supporting independent artisan producers.
The recipes have been developed by another local food champion, Steph Moon, who grew up on a farm in Skipton and has worked with food and drink since leaving school. The ingredients may be local but you’ll find an international flavour to the recipes from Steph’s travels round the world.
She is now firmly back in Yorkshire where she champions seasonal, local produce so working with Born & Bred is a match made in heaven.
What do you fancy for dinner?
You can customise your Yorkshire Holiday Box by selecting from nine delicious recipes and can choose to make between one and five meals during your Yorkshire Holiday.
Box sizes range from 2 – 6 people and you can always double up if you are feeding a larger group. You’ll get everything you need to make dinner (or lunch if you prefer) and the step-by-step recipe cards will guide you through exactly what you need to do.
You enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal without any of the hassle – sounds pretty good to me. Here’s some of the recipes you can try
- For meat lovers: Bavette steak with apple liqueur peppercorn sauce.
- A vegetarian option: Mint marinated Yorkshire Haloum!, roasted carrot and quinoa salad.
Fish and seafood: Simple king prawn curry with basmati rice.
Delivery when you want.
You can choose absolutely any day you like for your Born and Bred Holiday Box to be delivered. They can be delivered to any of our Gorgeous Yorkshire Cottages so you’ll be able to make the most of your self-catering holiday home.
It doesn’t matter if you’re not at home for the delivery either – it can be left in a safe place outside the property and the special insulated packaging will keep everything nice and fresh for when you get back. Find out more about Yorkshire Holiday Boxes.
We LOVE the online deli!
What’s a holiday without pushing out the boat a little bit? You’ll find everything from cheese and chutneys to cider and chocolate in the Born and Bred online deli – all sourced from Yorkshire!
My favourites include the Tipple Tails fruitcakes with a glass of the Yorkshire Heart Sparkling Rose Wine to wash it down. I’m also rather partial to a gin and love the Masons Dry Yorkshire Tea Gin!
