Ten Mile Menu – the best foodie idea, like, ever!

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Delis features here.

OMG I’m mega-excited about this company!

Ten Mile Menu – what a brilliant idea, and I say that from experience, having ordered some food from them a few days ago.

The concept is really simple. Instead of elbowing your way through a farmer’s market once a month, or driving around single suppliers (like, as if) , you can order the best local artisan food online at your convenience.

The company is based in Speen, north of Wycombe, and the food is truly local too, from in-and-around the Chiltern Hills. The producers are all superb, with many of them having made it previously into Muddy Stilettos on their own merits – Cici Coco and Orchard View Farm and Made by Mums. Others, like Seasons Farm Shop in North Dean, are new to me, but the rare breed Hereford cattle they sell from their adjoining Beachdean Farm was exquisite. Quite a discovery.

Ten Mile Menu isn’t designed to replace your entire weekly shop – it doesn’t yet deal in fruit and veg and if/when it does it will obviously be seasonal – but it provides all free range meats, game, sauces, chutneys, eggs, milk (to come soon), and sweet treats.

I ordered these yummies (above) the other day and with bread and pasta at home, sorted out a family meal easily –  a fun beetroot and walnut pesto pasta for my kids that turned everything a gratifyingly bonkers pink, antipasti on ciabatta for me and Mr Muddy, followed by an arrabiata bolognese. I could have picked cranberry and white chocolate brownies for afters – I mean, why wouldn’t you? – but my children are lemon drizzle cake fiends. From opening the wrapping to decimation took them about 5 seconds, so I guess they liked it.

All fantastic, but it all comes down to money in the end. The good news is that you pay the same as you would if buying direct from the producers direct – so roughly Tesco Finest or Waitrose prices – so it really is a lovely convenience. I already buy much of my meat from Orchard View Farm so I’m just going to make life easy for myself and combine my order with other goodies from Ten Mile Menu.

They deliver free for orders of £30+ within (roughly) a Ten Mile radius of Wycombe, but they’re a new keen business so if you’re further afield it’s worth calling owner Steve on  07967 328 455 to have a chat. Check out the website here .

OK c’est tout for today. I’m off to attempt a new snowman in the garden as a companion for Frosty the Snowblob. Have a great weekend peeps!
