From 9am on Tuesday 24th November you will be able to order one of the first Maray at Home boxes direct to your door wherever in the UK that door might be.
Maray is an award-winning restaurant group that started life in Liverpool in the summer of 2014. Their Middle-Eastern inspired food, creative and utterly drinkable drinks and dedication to exceptional hospitality has earned them a die-hard following since opening, with the term ‘‘Disco Cauliflower’ working its way into the local vocabulary soon after appearing on the menu.
It’s three founders; Thomas White, Dominic Jones and James Bates all hailed from various roles within the hospitality industry but shared a joint, fanatical adoration for the Parisian district of Le Marais. From this melting pot of food, drink and culture they drew their inspiration. Coming home, their mission at the start of their journey simply to serve the best Falafel in Liverpool alongside incredible drinks, in the most relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere possible.
Six years on and the trio have opened two more sites in the city, one in the suburbs of Allerton and another on the UNESCO world heritage Royal Albert Dock, with their sights set on expansion outside of Liverpool in the near future. Featuring a selection of mezze, a DIY falafel kit (made to the famous 2014 recipe), lamb kofta OR aubergine shawarma, dessert and optional treats from the bar, there will be 100 boxes made available for delivery (or collection from their home on Bold Street) on launch week.
A selection of wines and ready-to-mix cocktails can be bolted on to your order, including house fave the ‘Prickly Pear’ (a tequila and pear base complete with bay leaf garnish to carefully light at home) and unique wines chosen by Bar Manager Mark Jackson (special mention to the mouthwatering Lebanese Assyrtiko from the Bekaa Valley, £17).
Tom White, co-founder of Maray, said: “We’ve road tested loads of boxes from across the UK and have loved the attention to detail and experience, especially from the likes of Sabor, Arabica and Elite Bistro’s. Gary from Elite went as far as inviting us into the kitchen to see how they put their boxes together.
“We’ve had such great support from our customers and community, so we really hope these boxes bring a bit of a smile back to people’s faces over the next few weeks. We’ve tried to pour as much Maray into them as possible, from the second you tear off the tape, we want you to enjoy yourself.’’
Maray at Home arrives at your door in recycled cardboard and padded with biodegradable and compostable wool, so you can feel good as well as feel good.
