Cookes have put together three deliciously curated boxes to suit any appetite, from their classic Greek Box, a fancy Cheese Tasting Box paired with France Soir wines and a mega BBQ Box to make any meat lover happy.

It comprises of marinated rib eye, a selection of Donati’s sausages, onion jam, shaved slaw with jalapeños and caper mayo, roasted rosemary potatoes, house-made cornbread, tiramisu and a bottle of Pyren Vineyard Shiraz. The BBQ Box serves up to four people and is available for delivery and takeaway for $190.
If meat isn’t his thing, but swirling wine at the dinner table is, the perfect box for him is the cheese tasting one complete with two premium 375ml bottles of France Soir wine. A selection of cheese including Delice de Bourogne, Fourme D’ambert and comté is served alongside fresh pear, fruit crostini, homemade lavosh and walnuts for $100.
The last box is the Greek box featuring slow roasted lamb shoulder, smoked yoghurt and mint, classic Greek salad with fetta and vinairgrette, roasted rosemary and garlic potatoes, wood fired flat bread and their famous baklava ice cream. It serves two people for $80.
