Gousto…now you’re cooking!

Ok, so who’s heard of Gousto?

A few weeks back my mum thrust a leaflet under my nose asking for my opinion. After reading through the brightly coloured piece of paper I instantly wanted to find out more. On the internet I went and found out more about the world of Gousto…what a genius idea. Four meals – all the ingredients you need, delivered to your door in an insulated box on the day you request.

Straight away I ordered a box, I just had to try it out. I made sure my diary was pretty clear and I would definitely be available to eat the meals that week (that’s the only problem with having a hectic lifestyle – with products like this I cannot guarantee I will always be home to use the ingredients by their sell-by date).

Once entering your postcode and selecting your delivery date I was able to pick the meals and quantity (both persons eating and number of meals) I wanted…oh my gosh this was hard!!! So many of them sounds delicious my mouth was watering as I clicked the ‘add to my basket’ button!

Minimal days later my box arrived, neatly packaged and every item was labelled clearly in separate little pouches – oh another bonus point, all meat is sourced here in Britain – I love that. Also in the box we’re my chosen recipes with clear instructions and photos guiding me on each step of the process.

I cooked my first meal – Chicken Katsu Curry. (Yep, you read correctly, homemade Wagamama’s!!) The recipe card was easy to follow, every ingredient was measured out exactly in the packet provided so I had no faffing around with scales. A small amount of chopping but hey, that’s what makes you feel like a chef, right?!

Well the outcome was outstanding, flavours incredible and taste just out of this world. I felt like a full blown chef! I couldn’t wait for my next meal…I literally ran home the next evening!!!

Order your box today and I promise you won’t be disappointed, use code PROMO25 or follow this link for £25 off your first box – that’s basically equivalent to two meals free!!

Test it out and let me know your thoughts I’d love to see what you guys think!

British Pie Week…

Best week of the year? 

I have really enjoyed seeing everyone’s pie creations this week. It’s so nice to see people thinking outside the box and also sticking to the old traditional English pies! 

I stuck to a family pie tradition (A Nana Classic) and can’t wait to share it with you. At every family event it’s without doubt that my Nana is asked to make this pie (she also makes extra pies so everyone can take home a doggy bag – that’s how good it is!). It’s so simple, rather easy and just heavenly… you’ll be going back for seconds let me tell you. 

Cheese, Tomato and Onion Pie… see I told you it was simple! It’s exactly what is says on the tin, finely sliced layers of tomato and onion encased in mouth watering melted cheese, oh and did I mention the pastry also contains cheese?! It’s fair to say if you don’t like cheese, I’m sorry this recipe isn’t for you. Although, you could be creative and use something different such as pesto. 

Next time you have an event, make this and I promise people will be demanding you make more!
