If you're starting your big university adventure, or you're returning for another year, we've got your back. Check out our series of handy guides to help you and your mates through the university year. First up, here's some inspiration for home cooking style dishes you can find on Deliveroo.
It's natural to get a bit homesick, even if you're a seasoned student back for your final year. But check out these cosy dishes, just like Mama used to make, and you'll feel right at home in no time.
Pies – Piebury Corner, London
You've got your room set up, your new posters are looking beaut, and your flatmates seem great. But if you're missing the guys back home, and want a throwback to your favourite family night in, you can't beat a pie. The snuggle of soft mash, loads of gravy and a Steak & Stilton pie from Piebury Corner are just what you need for a comfy night in in your PJs.
Sunday roasts – The Den, Hereford
There's nothing like a roast dinner on a Sunday. But if you're not too confident you can cram a whole joint into that oven in your shared kitchen, we've got you covered. You and your new-found uni family can all gather round for a lazy sunday with a roast from The Den. With sky-high Yorkshire puds, crispy roast tatties, stuffing and gooey cauliflower cheese, your new flat will feel like a home from home.
Curry – Mughli, Manchester
If Mum or Dad is a culinary genius when it comes to curry, and you're already missing those warm, toasty spices coming from the kitchen, you need to try Mughli. Its traditional Thali Feast is Indian food for the soul. Choose your curry to go with chana chaat, tadka daal, bombay potato and all the trimmings for a proper feast after a long day of lectures.
Macaroni Cheese – The Fat Walrus, London
If you were a bit down in the dumps at home, or feeling a bit under the weather, nothing would perk you up like a hot, gooey bowl of mac and cheese. To relive those duvet days when you'd curl up with an old movie, get a Macaroni Cheese from The Fat Walrus. Melty, molten, marvellous – and you can even add bacon or Sloppy Joe to top it off – this is just what the food doctor ordered after a bad day.
