It’s 6.30pm, you’re on the bus, and dreaming of getting home to a healthy dinner. Trouble is, a detour to buy fresh parsley/tahini/black eyed beans is out of the question. Wouldn’t it be great if all the ingredients could be magically waiting at home for you?
Friends James Carter and Timo Schmidt thought so — which is why they set up Gousto for people committed to home-cooking, but lacking the time to shop for ingredients.
It’s a temptingly simple solution. Go online, choose from a ‘Couple Box’ and a ‘Family Box’, select the recipes that appeal to you, and they’ll deliver (for free) the necessary portions of the local, fresh, organic ingredients you need — along with easy-to-follow recipe cards.
Gousto’s recipes are developed by a team of professional chefs, cover all cuisines and styles, and are tested by friends and families first. Every week, the selection is updated to make sure there’re plenty of new recipes for you — recent dishes include chicken in mascarpone/chilli/lemon zest sauce and rice, and honey-roasted beetroot with warm bulgar wheat and beans. And, since the assumption is you’re busy, most dishes take no more than half an hour to prepare and cook.
Fancy giving it a go?
