all about Elena
I’m originally from a small town in Salento in the southern end of the Apulia Region in Italy and have also spent three years of my life living in Argentina where I met my partner. I have so many special memories of cooking and sharing authentic Italian food from my years spent abroad- from my mum’s original tomato sauce to my grandma’s bread baking. One thing that connects my experiences in both of these places is just how many people

We had a brilliant meal for 14 family members last night, and it was a huge success. The mainly vegetarian dishes were so colourful and really made us feel we were on holiday in Elena’s beautiful part of Italy. The food was delivered to the door, hot enough to eat, but with easy instructions how to do a quick re-heat if required. There were delicious canapés and we decided to have beef lasagne as well as spinach and ricotta cannelloni to allow guests to try each. All amazing. Big thanks!
Had a delicious Valentines meal from Elena last night. Delivered on time, big portion of seafood for the starter, delicious lasagne, and still eating the pudding this morning. Excellent!
We had a lovely lasagne and mushroom pastry on Friday night a fit was FABULOUS!,Would definitely recommend and a well deserved 5srats.
We had a wonderful three course meal from Apulia Kitchen; we couldn't decide what to have so we decided to have one of everything. The starters whetted our appetites for the delicious cannelloni, afterwards the tiramisu and crema pasticcera will live long in the memory! Highly recommended for excellent home cooked Italian food.
My girlfriend and I were instantly sold on the prospect of having authentic homemade Italian food and were definitely not disappointed. We Ordered the beef lasagna and aubergine parmigiana with the pitta di patate as a side dish. The portion size was perfect and we savoured every mouthful (with a glass of montepulciano d’abruzzo ????). We will definitely be ordering again very soon! Elena and her partner were very nice and friendly when we to came pick the food up. We’re so lucky to have this service so close to our house. Thank you and see you again soon Elena!
I feel so lucky to have found Elena. I wanted to plan a meal in celebration of my husbands birthday. She couldn't have been more helpful. Communication was fantastic. The food was absolutely delicious and better quality than any Italian restaurant we have been to.
We discovered Allaboutthecooks recently, looking for an alternative to the usual take-aways and for more local gourmet options, and we haven't been disappointed! Our first treat and order went to Elena's kitchen and she's made a fabulous job. The food was delicious and literally melting in our mouths. We ordered the 3-course meals, which we can highly recommend :) Generous portions and cuisine. Not to forget the very neat presentation, kind advice, customised order (ingredient removed as per request) and delivery. Thank you again!
On Sunday my housemates and myself decided to treat ourselves with a very special dinner. We ordered Cannelloni and Parmigiana form Elena. The food was simply amazing and the portions very generous. In particular the Parmigiana reminded me of my Grandma's cooking. She was from the South of Italy and a master in aubergine dishes. Anyway, the food impressed my housemates too. They described it 'comforting like a warm winter blanket' and 'a delight which melt in your mouth'! We can't wait to order the next delicacy!
I ordered some of Elena's meals for some friends who have just had a baby during the lockdown. They live a couple of streets away from her and she happily delivered to them. Her communication was prompt, kind and helpful, and my friends told me the food was delicious! Thank you!
It has been a delicious experience for all of us even for our 19 months baby. She loved it and asked for more. The pizza was quite large and well garnished. We will definitely order the Aubergine Pizza again. Elena was very friendly and professional and we highly recommend her. Grazie mille!!! :D
