Established in 2004, Manna Kitchen is an award winning multifaceted food business based in Dorset. The focus of the business has always been simple: food made with quality ingredients and brimming with fantastic flavours and that hasn’t changed.
This good food philosophy has taken the business into lots of different catering avenues from cafes, to event & corporate catering, to contract catering and festival catering alongside the original ready-meal production. So whether you are enjoying one of their all day breakfast baps with a free-range egg and locally made butchers sausage from the take-away café in Crossways, or one of the Great Taste award winning tarts at Discovery Court Café in Poole, or a handmade quiche and salad box at a festival, or a freshly prepared business lunch delivered to your offices, or a Manna Kitchen shepherd’s pie in front of the TV – it will always taste decidedly delicious!
The main kitchen is based in Crossways where the team create their frozen free-range ready meals and desserts in small batches using the finest local ingredients. These are then made available either directly through the website or at select farm shops and delis throughout Dorset. Manna Kitchen also offer a range of catering services including hospitality catering, holiday catering and contract catering. Each package comes with personalised menus with everything from lunch and welcome hampers, frozen meals, sandwich platters, hot and cold drinks, buffets and more. Many of our catering options even include the hire of cups, crockery and cutlery, so whatever you need, we can help.
Why not visit one of our cafes and sample our food on the go? You can find us at Crossways, Poole and Trentham where we are open during the week for breakfast, brunch and lunch with a selection of hot and cold drinks and our yummy award-winning tarts and cakes to accompany our daily specials.
Whether you’re staying in a 5* luxury home, a woodland lodge, floating off on a boat or in a studio flat, Manna Kitchen have got this self-catering thing nailed. We can provide you with a gorgeous freshly prepared lunch on arrival, picnic hampers, pre-supper canapés or, when self-catering isn’t quite self-catering but you cheat and get a private chef in, you will be in for the ultimate Dorset treat! With our ‘Celebrations of Dorset’ we can source some gorgeous local scallops, some of Dorset’s finest meats and create an amazing dessert, all served to you in the comfort of your holiday home. Grab some of our Manna-made frozen ready meals to pop in the oven at the end of a day, while you put your feet up and enjoy a glass of some of Dorset’s finest drinkies!
If you’re camping under canvas, we can provide you with breakfast hampers, packed lunches for a hiking trip or day out to the beach, and BBQ supplies for your evenings under the stars.
Some of our ready meals also have the added benefit of being Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan. At Manna Kitchen we handmake and blast freeze all our ready meals. Using locally sourced meat from Jurassic Meats, our meals taste just delicious; did I also mention that we’ve won some Great Taste Awards for some of our dishes, so it’s not just us saying it’s good, it’s also independently verified as scrumdiddlyumptious!
Our Manna Kitchen hampers are a thing of beauty…. we don’t just supply your regular food hampers, we do it with the Manna flair! Some hampers can be rather generic, so we’ve mixed it up a little and gone to the next level….check out some of these babies!
Not only do we supply our delicious hampers locally, we have a number which can be posted to the UK mainland, now no-one needs to miss out! Follow this link to order direct www.mannadelivery.co.uk/manna-hampers-local/menu
