We instantly loved the concept of The Cookaway and had the delight of trying out their exciting meal prep service. We chose from the Japanese menu and ordered STICKY GINGER MEATBALLS with Chicken & Veg Miso Soup. On first impressions, the box comes delivered to the door packaged and cooled to ensure that the ingredients remain fresh in transit. Each individual item is packaged beautifully, and the box includes everything needed to make the perfect meal (bar water, salt and sugar).
Only the very essential cooking equipment is needed to prep everything in the box, making it perfect for cooking up in a kitchen you are not used to. The cooking instructions are clear, well-presented, and easy to follow even for the most hesitant chefs. We were very impressed with the restaurant-level quality of the meals and how easy it was to prepare. We tried out the box for two people and found that there was an ample amount of food for the two of us!
Altogether, we were very impressed with The Cookaway’s, service, optionality, and ultimately the delicious meals. We certainly recommend that you give them a try on your next getaway. To find out more visit www.thecookaway.com
