COOK founders Edward & Dale
Here at COOK, one of our core values is called ‘Churchill’s Pig’. According to Sir Winston: a cat looks down on you; a dog looks up to you; but a pig looks you in the eye and sees its equal. This is how we try to talk to each other and to you, our customers. So, time for a bit of “pork talk” regarding the festive season. I have always found Christmas a difficult time. In our business, December tends to be hugely busy and stressful and, in the past, the arrival of the 25th has found me craving nothing more than sleep. Things are different now I have three wonderful children who adore every moment, but I remain conscious that December can be extremely hard work if you are the designated Christmas fairy in your household. For you, in particular, I hope we can provide a helping hand in the kitchen this year to give you a bit more time to enjoy yourself. Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

HOW COOK WORKS 1.
At our Kitchen, we COOK using exactly the same ingredients and techniques you would at home
Freezing at -35°C locks in the flavour and nutrients (no nasty additives or preservatives required)
At home, you heat from frozen in your oven or microwave
Enjoy a meal that looks and tastes homemade (maybe even a bit better than you might manage yourself)

Stuffed Crown of Turkey* (8) 45.00
All our turkeys are bred for us by William Grove Smith on his farm in Essex, where he follows a “plough to plate” philosophy: growing all his own wheat and barley to feed the birds, using his farm straw for their daily bedding and recycling their waste as fertilizer for his fields. We take the turkey crown, lay it flat and pile on our amazing stuffing made with Cumberland sausage meat from Speldhurst butchers, bramley apples, chestnuts, sage and dried cranberries for sweetness. The crown is folded around the stuffing and wrapped in a lattice of sweet-cured bacon to make sure the meat stays lovely and juicy. (Don’t forget to let your turkey rest for half an hour before carving).
*Please note, requires defrosting in the fridge for 48hrs before cooking
