What is SimplyCook?
How Does SimplyCook Work?
With SimplyCook you’ll receive four different recipes each week, delivered directly to you. With the recipes you’ll receive the unique flavour blends of herbs and spices. When ordering, you choose how many people you want to cook for (either 2 to 3 or 4+) and which meals you are planning to create – SimplyCook’s recipe bank is growing constantly, so there will always be something new to try; at the moment there are more than 100 recipes to choose from, and none of them take more than 20 minutes.
The flavour blends are the work of a professional chef, and could contain as many as 18 different ingredients such as culinary pastes, garnishes, spice blends, infused oils, and rubs. Each one is designed to bring your food up to the next level, and show you how, by adding just a few simple ingredients, you can create impressive dishes quickly and relatively effortlessly.
As well as the flavour blends, you’ll receive a shopping list of the other ingredients you are going to need. This will give you the exact quantities, so you can confidently go to the supermarket and purchase what you want.
