Why MILKRUN will change your life
Lyrics BY CHRISTINE LAN
The comforting aromas of herbs, spices and freshly baked flatbread warm the kitchen on this chilly evening, and your beloved friends are soon to arrive.
Lamb kofta and potatoes are baked on a bed of rich and spicy tomato puree sprinkled with a ground spice blend of peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and cumin .
The lentil soup is simmering on the stove and you’ve just finished the last batch of seared homemade flatbread. As you’re making the tabbouleh salad, you realize you’ve run out of hummus to go with the flatbread because you had four times the recommended amount yesterday and the day before. That’s when you remember there’s an instant grocery delivery app: MILKRUN.
Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around Melbourne here.
With much relief, you order several containers of hummus through the MILKRUN, then realize that you also need desserts because you didn’t have time to make baklava and pistachio ice cream. For your enjoyment, the app offers Messina, Connoisseur, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, as well as plant-based ice cream for your vegetarian and vegan friends.
Suddenly you remember the need to pair drinks with food and you think that the sophisticated sweetness of Pinot Noir, the elegance of Rosé, the fruity aromas of Sauvignon Blanc and a refreshing pack of Pale Ale will complete the dinner of the Middle East and order them through the MILKRUN app.
As you take the kefta and potatoes out of the oven and place the dish next to the flatbread, lentil soup and tabbouleh, the MILKRUN jumper arrives with the hummus, ice cream and alcohol. A few minutes later, your friends start arriving and you look impeccably organized thanks to MILKRUN’s efficient application.
