This week, The Pig is mostly…
FINDING multiple reasons to be cheerful on the hoof at Green Park Station on a daily basis: breakfast rolls from Green Park Express, tantalising Thai-ups from The Thai Hut, marvellous momos from Nawa Kitchen, fabulous falafel from Maureen’s Mediterranean Street Food, glorious goulash from the aptly-named Goulash, top tapas from Tapas Valencia, sambusas from Jikoni (like, wow!), silky crepes from Oh Crepe… see why this little piggy loves going to market?! For updates, opening hours, etc, follow Green Park Station on Twitter @GPS_Bath (https://www.greenparkstation.co.uk)
WANDERING around Woods, virtual shopping basked in hand, plundering their Take Out and Deli: a sumptuous selection of top-notch but eminently affordable meals ready to be cooked at home from fresh (the Woods’ chefs have done all the prepping for you) or from frozen after defrosting in the fridge overnight, alongside all kinds of everything else on the fine food front and a selection of wonderful wines (https://www.woodsrestaurant.com)
PREPARING to host a Portuguese pastry party when Nata & Co – famous for their Pastel de Nata, alongside all kinds of Portuguese treats – opens the doors to their new Bridge Street bakery at the end of lockdown (https://www.nataco.uk)
DEFYING the lockdown blues by partying on with Simi’s Kitchen’s virtual Supper Club every Friday evening – the sociable part (via Zoom) is optional; the eating isn’t! Order by 7pm on Wednesday for collection from Simi’s Great Pulteney Street HQ (or request home delivery) on Friday, then tuck in with as much privacy or connection as you choose – go on; make Friday fabulous!

REALLY impressed by Age UK B&NES lunchtime delivery of a 2-course hot meal for older people living in B&NES, direct to the person’s door, 7 days a week, for just £6.50. Specific dietary requirements can be accommodated, and there’s loads of choice on the extensive menu (https://www.ageuk.org.uk/bathandnortheastsomerset/our-services/communitymealsbanes/)
