Gousto, the chef delivered to your door

Being a food blogger means that I get to try out some pretty delicious food which I am very grateful for, but then I get to share all of these delicious recipes and food trends with you guys. This week it's all about Gousto, a company that bring great recipe boxes and good quality ingredients to your door. 

How does it work? 

If you head over to Gousto.co.uk you can choose from a variety of weekly meals to be delivered to your door. Each week they update the scrumptious list of recipes and you can choose how many of these recipes you would like to order, either for 2 or 4 people. After you've chosen your recipe, it will be delivered at a time that suits you. A box of all the ingredients needed for the recipes you chose, in the right amounts, with a recipe card to go with it. It is such a brilliant idea because it avoids food waste as you are only given the ingredients you need, it is also great for portion control which I need a little help with... 

You can have the boxes as often or as little as you would like. Meaning you can get different meals delivered each week, and if you have a week away or want a week off, you can simply just skip the week. However, if you fancy Gousto as a treat from time to time, you have the option to only pay for boxes when you want them. In my opinion it's pure genius, the recipes are so good but also really easy to follow and you end up with a restaurant quality meal in the comfort of your own home. 

So what did we order? Lots of chicken of course.... 

The chicken, red pepper and lemongrass curry and lemon pepper chicken with rosemary potatoes. Sounds good right? We got plenty of pictures of the curry but i'm afraid that we were way too excited to eat the lemon chicken and ate it before I even had the chance to take photos. I can't stress how easy the recipe cards are to follow and because you've got the right amount of everything, it's pretty hard to get it wrong. Plus, you've got the recipe card to keep so you can keep on making the recipe to your heart's content. 

We had a vote on our favourite meal and it was a 50/50 split, but if you want my opinion, it was the curry. If you want to give Gousto a go yourself, use the discount code: TORNADO to receive £20 off each of your 1st and 2nd Gousto orders, on any box size.
