Eat and connect in New Old Ways

Authentic Ready Home Cooked Meals from Registered Kitchens.

New Old Ways is a homecooked meal service looking to connect you with the best authentic local food. Our meals are all made with love by some wonderful community cooks!

Nowadays life is only getting busier and busier, and all this bustling has disconnected us from healthy homecooked food. It is all too easy to pop down and get takeaways as they’re often the easiest option, but NOW is wanting to change that.


When you’ve arrived home from a long day at work sometimes the last thing you feel like doing is spending time in the kitchen… NOW’s meals will nourish your body and allow you to enjoy a homecooked meal without that kitchen stress.

NOW connects you with local cooks who want to provide that homecooked food experience.
