I must say I like the sound of Urban Picnic lunch boxes. Run by Chef Ines Alfille and her husband Nick, a former investment banker, UPBox, as they call themselves, offers gourmet lunches-in-a-box to Londoners. The menu changes each week and spans a variety of cuisines. In keeping with the eco-conscious sense of the time, the food comes in a recyclable box. If you’re thinking of paying a visit, a word of warning: it’s take-out only.
Even so, I think it would be nice to try!
