We cook real dinners, using real ingredients and snap-freeze them as soon as they’re made.

Why?
  • It’s safe and hygienic
  • It locks in flavour and nutrients
  • It gives food a long shelf-life which means zero waste
  • Having a freezer full of fabulous food makes you feel like a total boss.

Freezing is the best, oldest form of preservation there is. It’s why we’re able to make our food with no preservatives or any other weird additives.

There’s a lot of “fresh” food out there sitting on grocery shelves that is over-processed and full of additives. Or else it’s natural but more tired and weepy than fresh. We’d rather that when you defrost your dinner, it’s as fresh as the day it was made – because it is!


A lot of our dinners can be cooked straight from frozen. Others are better defrosted first – that info will always be on the website and label. If you are an organised sort of person, you can defrost overnight in the fridge but if, like us, life sometimes gets the better of you, you can defrost most of our dinners quickly in a basin of room temperature water. The important thing is then to finish the reheating or cooking process within 2 hours and always heat food to a safe, piping hot 70C.

And the final thing we’d like to say is that all dinners, whether fresh or frozen, benefit from a little love before serving. Taste and add extra seasoning. Sprinkle with herbs or chopped chilli. Add a squeeze of lemon or a splash of olive oil. Make it your own. And enjoy your dinners!
