Introducing our new DiNE (Dine in North East) box

Nov 13, 2020

Say hello to our DiNE (Dine in North East) box!

A new concept box from Local Heroes NE that champions the absolute best of North East food, drink and chef talent. It brings together the North East’s most accomplished chefs with the finest North East produce to give you a food box filled with delicious meals and produce.

The theme for the DiNE box will change over time as Local Heroes NE creates new partnerships between different chefs and producers.

We’re excited to announce that the first DiNE box is a collaboration with Kennedy and Rhind and Collingwood Seafood that showcases our brilliant North East fishing industry.

Perfect for seafood or fish lovers, the ‘From The Sea’ DiNE box contains freshly caught seafood from Collingwood Seafood in North Shields and luxury ready-to-eat classics from bakery Kennedy and Rhind who are found every Saturday at the Local Heroes Pop Up Shop at The Beacon, and at their new premises on Holly West Avenue in Jesmond.

The ‘From The Sea’ DiNE box includes:

2 x Smoked Haddock Pasties
1 x Fish Pie
2 x North Sea Fishcakes
2 x Salmon Fillets
Salmon Gravadlax
Pickle Cucumber, Honey Mustard Dressing
Croutons and Samphire
