Based in the picturesque village of Little Weighton in East Yorkshire, we are a mother and daughter team that have been running The Black Horse as an award winning, food led pub for the last nine years. Since the happenings of 2020 we have been thinking of ways to best serve our community doing the job we love in a way that indulges our passion for modern, British food, whilst ensuring the safety of our staff and customers. Little Weighton Kitchen is the result.
Little Weighton Kitchen is a recipe kit service with a difference. Our mission is simple – we wish to create delicious, seasonal, fresh recipe kits that use local produce and sustainable packaging. Our talented team of restaurant chefs led by Wendy Rowley, have put their heads together to create recipes that will help bring the magic of restaurant quality food to your everyday meals at home.
How LWK Works
Unlike other recipe boxes, LWK isn’t based on a subscription method. You can simply order your meals as often or little as you wish (of course we would love for you all to become returning customers). Our only criteria is that our minimum transaction starts at three meals per order.
As we’re only a small (yet mighty) kitchen, our delivery or collection days are set to a Tuesday and Thursday to ensure maximum freshness before hitting your kitchen. When placing your order through our site the next available delivery and collection dates will be presented for your choice. If you opt to collect your order a £5 discount will automatically be applied at checkout. See below regarding delivery:
Where do we deliver? We are very excited to say that we now offer FREE carbon neutral delivery nationwide via DPD, a company focussed on Green Delivery by 2025, aligning with our sustainable ethos.
Live locally? Then our Little Weighton team will deliver right to your door, this means that we can also collect any used boxes/insulation so that we can then reuse them for future orders and keep waste to a minimum.
Simply tell us how many people you are catering for.
Choose 3 or 4 meals from our weekly changing list of recipes.
And place your order.
We’ll prepare your ingredients and deliver them to your door.
You cook the ingredients following our chef’s instructions and take all the credit of your restaurant quality meal.
No, we are currently working without a subscription service. We'd love you to order a box every week but if you'd just like to try a one off box that's totally fine.
Luckily for us being born from The Black Horse Little Weighton we already have years of experience of using fresh and locally sourced ingredients under our belt, ensuring all of our suppliers adhere to the highest ethical codes and the relevant accreditations. You can find more information on our individual suppliers on our suppliers page here.
We are using East Yorkshire based food producers for as many of our ingredients as possible. If you represent or know of any food producers who would like to work with us please use the contact us button.
You can find out all about our sustainability efforts on this page. Link to sustainability page with some answers to key questions.
We have minimised the use of plastic throughout our packaging looking for compostable alternatives where possible. However, our main priority is making sure that our food reaches you in good condition and meets all food safety standards, because of this you will see a limited amount of plastic in your recipe kits. This plastic is recyclable in your household recycling bins and we’d love to encourage you to use these where possible.
We can re-use!
To help us minimise our environmental footprint, you can return the ice packs, wool blankets, and the outer box by either leaving on your door stop for collection, when your next tasty delivery is due, or ring us on 01482 847473 and we will arrange to collect. We recommend using the brown paper bags to collect your compostable waste which can then go straight into your brown bin.
We work on a pre-order only basis so that we can order exactly the amount we need from our local suppliers before portioning everything off and sending your way. We also work with ReFood the European market leader in food waste recycling, to ensure that any bits that get left behind can be put through their Anaerobic Digestion System to convert the waste into renewable energy.
When choosing your meal and dates you’ll find the drop down menu asking “how many people are you cooking for?”. There is currently an option to select two or four people.
Free delivery is available for all orders. £5 discount will automatically apply to your order if you opt to collect your delivery from The Black Horse Little weighton.
