La Goccia meal kits are available for nationwide delivery, priced at £90, with the vegetarian box at £80.

Tim is serving his chilli, both meat and veggie options in a brioche bun topped with onions, cheeses and sauces such as herby green sauce and smoky BBQ. You can get fries, corn ribs, coleslaw and BBQ beans on the side as well as syringes of Chillibomb Kicker sauces to inject into the bun if you like it extra HOT!
