Ocado cold meatsReaders should know that I am a huge fan of Ocado and usually have a weekly delivery so it's great to be able to share the deals the online supermarket has on offer. We sampled Unearthed Leon Selection Platter, the Delisanté Roasted Pepper & Goats Cheese Quiche, and from the wine deals, Champagne Charles Lecouvey Brut.

These came in time for a party Olivia was hosting. "The Unearthed Leon Selection Platter (£3.49, two for £5) was delicious, although it has to be said I didn’t really get a look in as Harriet ate most of it! They were really flavorsome and moreish. They are packaged perfectly for a picnic and I would definitely be purchasing more.

Ocado quiche"The Delisanté Roasted Pepper & Goats Cheese Quiche (£was £3.70, now £2.47) comes in two sizes and the larger one was ideal for a party. It  had a great crumbly base and enough crunchy peppers to give it a lovely texture, especially as so many bought quiches are quite bland and mushy. Great served either cold or hot."

Needless to say the Champagne Charles Lecouvey was a real treat and at half price (£13.50 instead of £26.99) was fantastic good value – especially when you think that you can pay a lot more than that for a bottle of house wine in a restaurant.

This was just a small sample of the spring deals – there are a lot more treats on offer but some run out very quickly so make sure you buy early.

Ocado offers one hour delivery slots (some are free with orders over £75) and Wednesday is their free delivery day.
