Heating Instructions - We've Gone Paperless!
Here are some instructions for how to reheat / freeze our dishes. Please do feel free to contact us if you have any questions at all.
We decided to go paperless because of the ever changing nature of our dishes, we hope you don't mind and can print from here if need to have more handy in the kitchen.
Thank you for your order from London Kitchen Deliveries, we appreciate every bit of your support.
Take the lid off the foil container and remove the aioli. Pre-heat the oven to 200c then reheat the croquetas for around 6 minutes. Serve with the chicken skin aioli.
Pan con tomate.
Toast or griddle the sourdough bread then add the tomato tartare and iberico ham!
Prawn pil pil.
Pour the prawn oil into a small frying pan and heat gently until nice and hot but not smoking. Aadd the raw prawns and cooked for a couple of minutes until they are pink all the way through. In the last minute add the confit garlic and stir. Enjoy with bread.
For best results take out of the foil container and place on a baking tray with space between them. Preheat the oven to 180c then pop them in the oven for 15 minutes. Heat the sauce separately in a small pan or microwaveable container. Pour the sauce over the potatoes or use as a dip!
Cod with braised squid and haricot bean stew.
Remove the cardboard lid from the foil container. Preheat the oven to 180c then place the foil in the oven for 10 min or until the cod is cooked through.
Iberico pork pinchos morunos.
We have already seared the pork but you need to cook it through. Take it out of the fridge a little before you are ready to cook in.
Preheat the oven to 200c. Place the caramelised onions underneath the pork in the foil container then cook in the oven 10 minutes. Take out of the oven then rest the meat for 5 to 8 minutes before enjoying it with the piquilllo puree and green herb sauce.
for dishes such as Meals for 2, Paella & Sides.
Example dishes: Paella (vegan or meat), Comforting Beef Shin Chilli Con Carne, Basmati rice
Many of our meals for two, soups and side dishes can be reheated in the microwave, particularly those with a lot of sauce such as curries and soups.
If the meal arrives in a foil container, decant the meal into a microwavable container as a ceramic dish or a Tupperware then cover loosely with a plate or cling film. If your meal arrives in a black recyclable container then it's good to go straight in the microwave.
Reheat at full power for two minutes. Take the meal out and stir then reheat for another two minutes, again at full power. Ensure the meal is piping hot throughout before transferring to a plate or bowl to eat, as microwave powers and models do differ.
(Note. Side dishes such as basmati rice will not take as long to reheat, so please reduce the reheating time accordingly).
for dishes such as Meals for 2 & Side Dishes.
Example dishes: Sausage & fennel pasta, Mac n Cheese, Thyme & Garlic Roast Potatoes
Many of our meals for two can be reheated in the oven at 180C. Remove the cardboard lid from the meal’s foil container and replace with some foil.
Pop the meal in the oven for roughly 15 minutes until it is piping hot all the way through, stir part way through the cooking if you are able (we know you can't do this with bake at home dishes such as pies or lasagne). Transfer to plates before eating.
Freezing at Home & Using our Frozen Meals
Many of our dishes can be frozen by you at home. Please freeze on the day you receive the delivery and write the date on the container so that you know what date you froze it on. If you are receiving our frozen meals, also make a note of the day you added to your freezer.
Unless the dish says to cook from frozen, please defrost the dish completely in the fridge before reheating as above (in oven or microwave).

Bake for approximately 30 minutes then remove the foil and bake for another 10 - 15 minutes. Check the centre is piping hot before serving. Allow to stand covered in foil for approx 5 minutes before serving so the layers can firm up.
Croquetas & Arancini
These products are best fried from frozen so please keep in the freezer until ready to use. Heat some vegetable oil in a pan until it reaches 170c (or until a piece of bread turns golden in 30 seconds). Cook in batches until they are golden on the outside but heated through to the centre.
Take the lid off the container with the vegetables and chicken, pour 3 tablespoons of the chicken ramen broth into the base of the container, place the lid back on and microwave for 1 - 2 minutes to start heating up the vegetables & chicken. They are already cooked so you don't want to over cook the vegetables too much.
Arrange the vegetables, noodles and chicken in two pre-warmed bowls as you would like to serve them.
Heat the chicken ramen broth in the microwave or in a pan until piping hot then pour over the chicken, vegetables & noodles.
Sticky Toffee Pudding
The sticky toffee puddings are lovely as they are but even better served warm. The best way to heat them (and the sauce) is to give them a 20 – 30 second blast in the microwave until they are steaming slightly.
