We spoke to Amin Rachidi, West Green Food’s Director, about their home deliveries:

Can you tell us about some of your customers?

We supply some of London’s most vibrant, popular restaurants and hotels. The same produce we supply to discerning chefs is now available to London homes.

Any festive seasonal produce in your boxes that deserves a special mention?

We have the most beautiful British fruit and vegetables in stock. Something that absolutely brightens a festive dinner are our delicious heritage carrots. Literally rainbow carrots!

We sell bunches of white, purple and orange varietals. Carrots weren’t orange until the Dutch started cultivating them in the 1500’s. Up until then, they were white and purple.

Anyway! Par cook them, then roast them in the oven with some rosemary, light olive oil, salt, pepper and a drizzle of honey. Delicious.

Do you have a nice story about your home delivery business?

During the first lockdown, we decided to support my Local Art Centre in Barnes (OSO Art Centre).

They were cooking and delivering ready meals for the local elderly and people in need. It was heart-warming to see so many people doing their best to help others, especially the elderly who can’t go out to do their shopping.

It was an eye opener and so humbling to see people caring about one another.
