Locked-down Londoners craving comfort food can order up mac and cheese to their door - thanks to an enterprising Tufnell Park couple.

When Alex Perez-Davies and girlfriend Maria were prevented from working in the hospitality industry by Covid-19 they “decided to take matters into our own hands.”

The pair, who previously worked at Kricket Soho and Hops & Glory in Essex Road started up Miss Mac’s from their kitchen, delivering locally by bike.

“We are both passionate about food and the feedback so far has been outstanding,” said Perez-Davies, who hopes to open pop up stalls around London once the lockdown lifts.

“We have both lived in Islington for most of our lives and being part of the local community is important to us. This lockdown is offering us a positive life change, to create something of our own that we can be proud of, with potential to grow.”

He adds that the secret to a good mac and cheese is lavish amounts of different types of cheese with “a crispy golden top a must!”
