“Never Again”

Written on: 04/07/2013

Bought Cookfood.net Lamb Casserole with Minted New Potatoes in local Garden Centre. Totally disappointed, potatoes not prepared (one sprouting) lamb (bearable) swimming in thin gravy? Whole meal sadly lacking in taste, total waste of money as ended up in bin… Read Full Review

Totally agree with you, the prices are eye watering!! At the end of the day most of it is just the old pierce and ping cooking.

“Beef Bourguignon”

Written on: 05/04/2013

I found this meal absolutely awful. The 'Top Rump Steak' was stringy and there was only two very small pieces. The smoked bacon I could not find, the bulk of this so called meal was caremelised shallots, onions and garlic. A truly disgusting meal that ought to be prosecuted under the trade description act… Read Full Review

Could not agree more. The beef was not enough for three people let alone four. Most embarrasing when served to guests at a lunch party

“lasagne al forno”

Written on: 18/11/2012

Have not bought this for about 6 months. Not as good as it used to be.Too much tomato ,not as much meat hardly any bechamel sauce. If you have changed the recipe to keep cost down, not a good move. I used to recommend this to friends and would serve it to them ...it was always a success.Don't think I will be buying it again, will have to go back to making it myself . What a faff!… Read Full Review

“Oh, yes please!”

Written on: 02/07/2012

I don't like cooking, so these ready meals are great for me.I especially like the Hearty Fisherman's Pie, the Liver, Bacon and Onions and the Lamb Casserole with Minted New Potatoes. The Thai curries ( both red and green ) are lovely, just spicy enough, and the portions are generous...a double size portion really does feed two hungry adults!They are a great standby to keep in the freezer, especially the microwaveable recipes...fantastic value. Keep 'em coming!! (ps small complaint...didn't… Read Full Review

I really can't believe you say "just like mamma made", if my mum had made stuff like this she would be embarrassed and turn in her grave, it's overpriced, pretentious rubbish, I have had a few meals from here and it's nothing special - the prices are astounding though - £14 for a apple tart!!! I could go on but won't - all I can say is the two guys are very clever at marketing and have made a fortune selling this stuff....

“Pleasantly Surprised”

Written on: 08/11/2011

After reading the reviews, I was a bit wary of trying Food - however I bought the Lasagne al Forno and it was delicious. My only concern is, having looked on the pack, it doesn't say where the mince came from. I don't like the thought of foreign mince ... however, I would thoroughly recommend this dish - and I'm not easily pleased usually ! I would say there is plenty for three people in this dish costing £6.99. Not really enough for four, especially if they are hungry men… Read Full Review

“Amazing food, amazing service!!”

Written on: 19/07/2011 by imogen_c (1 review written)

I wasn't sure what to expect, for me frozen meals from supermarkets are usually over-processed & taste pretty bland. I decided to go ahead & buy from Cook as i had little time to prepare meals at home. I am so glad i did, it's the best thing i have done in a long time! The meals are amazing, we have been astonished by the quality & taste. It takes no effort & hardly any dishes used, & the best part is it tastes fantastic. The lasagne's are amazing - even the macaroni has an edge to it! We love… Read Full Review

“Was initially recommended by family member...now wish...”

Written on: 16/05/2011 by hayabslee (4 reviews written)

Was initially recommended by family member...now wish I wasn't.

The 3 best words to sum up this company, are: overpriced, over-rated and pretentious!

We visited their store in Billericay. Straight away, we were approached by a member of staff trying to get us to try their 'hot taster' and said did we know what the shop did...yes, frozen meals - maybe we looked stupid! They eventually left us alone.

We did go into this shop with high hopes following previous rave reviews, however, we wish… Read Full Review

I am amazed by your review, and I think you have a big chip on your shoulder!
If you prefer an Asda curry then you don't know good fresh food when you taste it.

Written on: 15/05/2013

Actually, I have to agree, I have had many meals from this shop to try and see if they are really worth the money, its very hit and miss with the quality, and the pushy sales assistants are unbelievable, I know someone who works in one of the branches and says how they have to push, push push sales through, they say that they go on their marketing of being just like you would make at home - well, I'm not one to boast and I'm no Masterchef but if I served up some of these meals I would be ashamed. I'll stick to my own cooking, no wonder the two men who thought this shop up are very rich, to me they are just twosales men who have hurt certain people that this is gourmet cooking - believe me it isn't!!!!! I did notice that many people in the shop where I went are elderly - there are some very well heeled pensioners out there!

TheMrsH has commented on my own review (thankyou!) However I have looked into TheMrsH's comments and yep you've guessed it, he/she has made negative comments on all the reviews he/she has read. Even the positive reviews??? Well I suppose that just goes to show that TheMrsH's comments carry no weight whatsoever.

Cheese Souffles with Red Onion Marmalade

I have been buying from Cook for many a moon. T'other day, en passant, I saw an A board outside Big Momma's Oxted shop advertising the first Cheese Souffles.

Written on: 19/03/2011 by Kate Hart (1 review written)

I bought the new style lamb shanks with vegetables and they were inedible, very hard and parsnip hard and stringy. The meat and gravy were okay but otherwise very disappointing, maybe leave out the veg!
Also I bought the steak and red wine pie which says "all butter short crust pastry". No way, it was more like water pastry, hard and flat, that too was disappointing as I love pastry, innards were okay. Unfortunately both times it was a meal for my mother who is 84 and likes good food.

I found this review very helpful because...it's true - overpriced garbage with pretentious staff who believe they're something special. When, in truth, they sell poorly cooked frozen food at extortionate prices!

I could not agree more. Over Christmas 2013 I spent nearly £150.00 on their meals and most of them were disappointing in the extreme. They tasted bland, were poorly cooked and there was a lack of meat when on the menu. Constantly having to make apologies to any guest and my husband thought I had gone out of my mind buying the products.Give me M&S anytime if you do not have the time to cook from scratch!

I'm amazed to see criticism of the packing of Cook products: we live in the wilds of Argyll and stuff arrives even here in great condition. Cook is a lifesaver for me since I don't have a lot of handy stores supplying this kind of food within miles. We have used supplies from the Horsham branch frequently for parties at our daughter's house, to great acclaim… Read Full Review

Cook Ready Meals are poor and I would suggest that unless you want to run the risk of eating glass, you avoid them. A large piece of glass was found in a chicken & mushroom lasagna & despite charmingly worded letters, the company does not take any responsibility whatsoever. The only reason for 'rating' the product is so that this review can be posted. Suggest that there is a zero rating button that can be clicked… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2010

This is an excellent source of well prepared tasty food - as good as freshly home cooked in many instances and better in others :-) Definitely much nicer than a well known widely advertised frozen meals service and a must I'd say, for most people who need reliable backup meals. The portion sizes are generous, I often share a single portion of curry between the two of us for example - so the costs are cheaper than they may appear at first. The meat has always been of the highest quality and… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/05/2009 by gillballard (1 review written)

For the second Saturday in a row our order of Cook food has arrived semi-defrosted. The order had been dispatched on the Friday evening and arrived at 11.30am. When we reported the semi defrosted food last week they said sorry, it's the first instance of defrosting we have been told about. We explained there were only 8 ice packs in the box. We were told they would ensure more are put in next time. Well they put in 10 this time and the order was still semi defrosted. This must be against Health… Read Full Review
