They have been providing meals using the same techniques and ingredients as you would use at home since 1997 and the founders Edward and Dale love to hear your feedback and love to tell the chef who made you particular meal that you liked it.
There are less than 400 calories in each pot with the actual number of calories written on the top in big writing.
I was sent individual portions of Middle Eastern Lamb Koftas, Japanese Salmon, Thai Butternut XSquash Soup and Prawn Tom Yum, along with a two person portion of duck confit, mashed potatoes and apple & blackberry crumble.
The individual portions are perfect for me to take to work and first I took the Middle Eastern Lamb Koftas.
Sometimes ready made food has that samey samey taste to it but I am happy to report that my Cook meal didn’t have that. I had the Middle Eastern Lamb Koftas, in a sweetly-spiced tomato sauce with chickpeas, couscous, golden raisins and mint.
I cooked it from frozen in the microwave at work and by following the instructions on the back, cooking from frozen for best results.
I found this one to be both filling and satisfying and very tasty. Each pack tells you the name of the chef that cooked it and mine was cooked by Michael Ewens on this occasion. Well done to Michael I have to say. I would certainly buy this one if I saw it in the supermarket and with only 281 calories and at a cost of £3.99 I think it made a great lunch to have at work.
The second one I took to work is the Japanese Salmon, chunks of salmon with soy, ginger, soya beans and black and white rice. This one is 394 calories and is a cost of £3.00. Mine was cooked by Lewis Feaver and had a lovely Asian aroma and was tasty and filling.
The Prawn Tom Yum is a classic Thai soup seasoned with tamarind and lime with king prawns, vegetables and noodles. this has two chilli peppers on the front to indicate that it might be spicy and it was just a little too spicy for me but I loved it and had to keep on eating it despit the heat. Mine was cooked by Gennaro Ruocco and was only 231 calories per portion at a cost of £3.99.

Many thanks to Cook for the package of food they sent me for review. I did not receive any payment for writing this and all opinions are my own.
