Tell Me More

  • Our bestselling dish - find out for yourself why this is no ordinary Macaroni Cheese!
  • The sauce has some special COOK twists: English mustard, double cream and a little lemon juice
  • Two types of Cheddar in the cheese sauce, vintage and mature, from Barber's, a family business based in Somerset who still make Cheddar the traditional way

Try it with:

  • A simple but spectacular addition are roasted vine-ripened tomatoes with fresh rosemary. Watch the video on this page for more
  • Veggie it up by mixing in some steamed broccoli, cauliflower, butternut squash, leeks or peas
  • If you're in need to serious comfort, you could add a Garlic Ciabatta

How We Make It At Our Kitchen

  • Funnily enough, Macaroni Cheese that cooked perfectly from frozen was probably the hardest dish for us to learn to make
  • The macaroni is boiled briefly, so it's very al dente; then we make a classic cheese sauce that's almost single-cream thin
  • When it's cooked at home, the pasta absorbs the sauce and, hey presto, perfect macaroni and a lovely thick, cheesy sauce

We then freeze our meals at -35°C so it tastes freshly made when you cook it at home (no nasty additives or preservatives required). Most of our food can be heated from frozen (sometimes in minutes in your microwave). Check the instructions below.

These cooking instructions are only a guide. Your appliance may have a personality of its own (or a different power rating). Please adjust accordingly.
