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 feel that if Cook is going to charge a fair bit of money over and above normal shop prices, they should be consistently good.
