UCook Review

Posted on by Anouschka in Latest News, Product Reviews

Recently I discovered another wonderful food delivery service called UCook, where you receive EVERYTHING you need to cook 3 delicious meals, including the recipe and the freshest, yummiest ingredients.

Their recipes are created from scratch from a number of chefs, including the winner of the Italian Masterchef TV series Lapo Magni, Nic Tonglet who has worked at the Test Kitchen and Pot Luck Club under the mastermind Luke Dale-Roberts, and Janne Molzen a lecturer at Silwood. The end product is a balanced healthy meal that is both nutritious and delicious. You can find out more information on the chefs who created each recipe, by reading their chef bio at the bottom of the menu page.

I was given the opportunity to test their service, and we chose the L-carb menu for our family.

Our 3 recipes


We checked the expiry dates and selected to prepare the Oven Baked Salmon first. My kids absolutely love fish (luckily!) so this was an easy choice. The salmon was paired with roasted leekes and a refreshing fruity salsa.

Our toothless wonder loved the salmon


Luca had to get in on the action too 😉


Next we tried the Bangers and sweet potato mash.  This was definitely a firm favourite with everyone. Even though I thought the Brussel sprouts were a brave choice, when mixed with the caramelized onions and sweet potato mash, we had a winner on our hands. I even had the left overs the next day for lunch (and I’m NOT a left over fan), and it was absolutely delicious.




Eating kids = happy mom 🙂


Yes Luca, you can have a pic too xxx


Lastly, we tried the Grilled Chicken Breast with courgettes and Serrano ham. This was probably my favourite and the Serrano ham was amazing! The sunflower seeds were an wonderful addition as well. Truly yummy.

All in all, we got to try some great new recipes and flavour combinations that I’ve not tried before. The fact that the kids ate most of their food is always a very good sign as well.

The quality of the ingredients is really good and portion size generous.

Delivery and presentation also get two thumbs up with all ingredients packaged in a paper bag per recipe.


What makes this service slightly different (and pretty awesome) is that they have a Flexi-plan, whereby you can order from all the menus, in case you prefer something from the other menu plans.


Another great added service is that you can return your previous weeks box and packaging for recycling when they drop off your next order. 😀


So, if like me, you’re not a chef, and don’t like sifting through recipe books and then shopping for the right ingredients, UCook is the ideal solution. They do all the hard work for you, and you get all the compliments at home. Win-Win!
