Summer 2008 Menu

COOK


Our founding principle when we started cooking in 1997 was ...

‘ to cook using the same ingredients and techniques that you would use at home so everything looks homemade and tastes homemade. ’ 2008 - Nothing’s changed.

Great for Summer

We have traditionally approached Summer with a certain degree of trepidation. Whatever the temperature was outside you could usually add about 12 - 15 degrees to get to the temperature we were cooking in. With the steam in the air from all the cooking the atmosphere was often akin to a hot summer's day in the Amazonian Basin. But this year is different. With our shiny, new, air conditioned kitchen Damien, Wayne and the other chefs can look forward to summer again safe in the knowledge that they will not be plying their craft in a South American sauna. This year, you'll see that we've highlighted all the meals that we reckon work really well when the weather is good along with some summer serving suggestions on the packaging. We've called it 'Great for Summer' - simple stuff but we hope this helps. We've also been busy developing several new dishes (the Salmon and Smoked Haddock Lasagne is a particular triumph), a completely new range of party food and canapes, new kids’ meals, and a couple of very fine puds. As ever, please get in touch with any feedback you might have at edward.perry@cookfood.net. All the best Edward and Dale, Founders

Menu Key You will see these symbols next to our food. This is what they mean:

How spicy is this dish ? 1 chilli = warm me up All meals can be re-heated 2 chillies = nice and spicy in a conventional oven, 3 chillies = hose me down but those with this symbol Gluten free can also be cooked in a microwave. Great for Summer HD Home Delivery. Our puddings, quiche, canapes, cakes and traybakes are not available online except for those marked with HD. Suitable for vegetarians.

Very occasionally we might have to change prices, ingredients or symbols mid-menu for which we apologise but all prices, ingredients and symbols were correct at time of going to print. Please refer to the packaging for the most up-to-date information.


Grea t

fo r

r e m Sum Just for a change we have decided to highlight at the beginning of this menu all of our meals that we think work best for summer eating. We've also included some simple ‘summery’ serving suggestions which you will also find on the packaging. This doesn't exactly qualify as a ‘great leap for mankind’ but we hope you find it useful. If you need the full product descriptions for these meals you will find them later in this menu.
