There are lots of companies that sell all type of things online. Some are easy to supply, books, CDs, durable goods. Some are harder than others. Today I came across a company called Cook who supply frozen meals and ship them all over the UK. They don’t actually ship to the Isle of Man, but a local supermarket carries their products. So, this evening we tried their Nut Roast and their Red Lentil and Mixed Bean Casserole from their Vegeterian menu. It was surprisingly good, and it was only after I decided to look them up that I found out their the are primarily an online-supply business.
The one thing I loved about their food was the attention to detail. The meals were very tasty, with great use of spices and as a finishing touch, they also include the signature of the person who prepared the meal. You can read the history of the company on their website here. They also explain how the delivery process works. Basically the food is prepared and flash frozen at their factory. It is then shipped overnight in insulated packages straight to your door. Their minimum order is quite high, however as it’s frozen food it keeps well, so can just be stored ina freezer.
Bottom line, if you get the opportunity to try their meals, go for it. I was extremely impressed
