We’re sharing the COOK recipe for one of our most popular Indian dishes, so you can try it at home. We suggest you use higher-welfare chicken and, if you want to use the same spices as we do in our Kitchen, they are from East End Foods, available in many supermarkets and speciality shops.
You can always substitute the chicken for your veggies of choice if you want to make a vegetarian version … and, obviously, this recipe freezes well if you’ve got leftovers!
We published this guide recently for our team. While a lot of it concerns courses, workshops and details specific to COOK, there are a few gems we thought we’d share that might help keep you happy and healthy over the coming year…
The secret behind making remarkable meals isn’t really a secret at all. It’s all about good ingredients, good recipes and preparing everything by hand with care, just like you would at home. If you need proof, here’s the recipe for our Lamb Tagine. John, from the Brand Team in the COOK Office, tried it at home recently.
Ever wondered where your New Year’s resolutions always fail? Al, our Dream Manager, is here to help…
You’ve finally run out of turkey for sandwiches, you’ve drunk the house dry, and the box of chocolates only has the horrible coconut ones left. Attention turns to the year ahead and the pledges that many of us make to be better people over the next 12 months. Yet with all the best intentions in the world of ‘exercising more’, ‘losing weight’, ‘eating more healthily’, ‘learning a new skill’, ‘spending more time on personal wellbeing’ and so on, so few of us succeed. Why is that? It’s simple really. It comes down to perseverance. Only a few ‘stay the course’. We get bored, loose the excitement, the results are too slow and the initial will power ebbs away. Change is hard, staying as you are is easy.
As a Food Team we wanted to share some of our favourite festive recipes with you all. We’ve put together a menu which will create a delicious evening for you to entertain friends and family with (granted, for a fair amount of work!), but equally, they’ll all work individually as part of a menu you already have planned too. If you do make any of them over the festive season, please do send us your photos – we’d love to see them.
It’s been a bumper year for shop openings here at COOK, and last Friday saw the last one of 2018, in Gerrards Cross. Our Co-founder Ed was there on opening day, along with lots of familiar faces from COOK, and we were thrilled to have such a warm welcome from everyone who came to see us.
