Remarkable Food For Your Freezer

Spring Clean Your Freezer!

Posted on 27 February 2014


It’s time for a spring clean.

Your freezer’s long-forgotten contents have got to go...*

The squashed loaf of bread; the healthy, homemade soup the colour of radioactive waste (our freezer is filled with good intentions); the tupperware containing a mystery brown mass; the empty ice-cream tub (how spirits lift, only to be cruelly dashed when the lid is peeled back - WHO put it back in there?) Go on, empty a drawer and fill it with some of our remarkable food.

*We hate waste. Eat what you can.  Recycle what you can’t..

See our spring menu in full here, and read Co-Founder Dale's story
Seventeen years ago, Ed persuaded me to quit a perfectly good job as an executive chef to cook these homemade frozen meals. All I had to do was figure out how to make them taste great (which took rather longer than either of us imagined)...

Celebrating 10 Years: Damien Payne

Posted on 17 February 2014

Tags: Chef, dale, founders

As you’ve hopefully noticed, we put the name of the chef who cooked each batch of our food on our packaging. A name you might have come across is Damien Payne. Last week was Damien’s 10th anniversary at COOK and our founder Dale has penned him a touching little tribute..

"From day one, Damien has been an integral part in the success of COOK. His passion for cooking and care in everything he does is a testament to this man’s commitment. When the chips are down Damien is the one you want at your side. His natural ability to motivate and inspire his peers is truly remarkable...."

This week we gave birth…to a beautiful new website.

Posted on 7 February 2014

New website!

We’re guessing the birth was rather less painful than the real thing (“guessing” because those involved are either too young, too single or too male to have first hand experience), but it did keep us up all night. 

It should even look beautiful on your smartphone or tablet. It uses something called 'responsive' design, which means everything changes in proportion to the screen size you're using, which means you shouldn't need a microscope and the fingers of a 5 year old to get any where on our website on your mobile anymore.

Plus we've been able to add nutrition, ingredients and allergen information to most of our products, which is good news.

Please do let us know what you think in the comments below or at edwardanddale@cookfood.net - we'd love your feedback (and feel free to be much more honest than it was an actual child).

Hannah's Diet Round-Up

Happy Hannah at the end of her OMG diet
So I have officially reached the end of my COOK diet and I have to admit I'm feeling a little bit pleased with myself.

I've managed to shed one stone exactly, which is a lot more than I'd hoped for. I hit it hard in the first week, rigidly sticking to the two meals per day with a small breakfast and minimal snacking. In the following couple of weeks I started allowing myself half a chocolate brownie here and there and a slightly more substantial brekkie. It might slow progress a bit but I'm of the belief that a little bit of something naughty is good for the soul and helps keep you going in the long run.

Healthy Green Juice With Broccoli And Kale

Posted on 1 February 2014

Tags: Healthy Eating, recipe, video, drink

Vibrant green in colour, this juice from Raw Food Detox by Anya Ladra contains more goodness than you can shake a stick at. At first glance the ingredients don’t scream ‘I’m delicious, drink me’ (who wants to drink broccoli of a morning?), however, with the addition of ginger, our January diet guinea pig Hannah can testify that it was in fact pretty scrumptious.
