Back in October last year the lovely people at Charlie Bigham’s asked if I’d like Charlie to cook my dinner for me.
At first I thought they were going to send the man himself round to my house which seemed very exciting.
Actually they meant would I like to try some of his ready to cook meals.
And although I love to cook I have to confess sometimes I’m really naughty and I buy ready prepared stuff *SHOCK*.
So I said yes and they sent me Thai Green Curry, Steak and Ale Pies and Lasagne.
We ate them doted through a week and bit.
Thats not a bit of each doted through a week and bit but one dish each time.
Were they easy?
Were they tasty?
Could you have passed them off as your own work like people did with M&S Chicken Kiev in the 1980s?
Would I buy them again?
YES …… I already have (several times) and in fact Charlie’s made his very special Lasange for me tonight.
Which means “I’d definitely be on the look out to pick one of these up and I’d make efforts to find out where it was sold. Its great value for money and ‘punches well above its weight’. Definitely need to have some to hand.”
Because sometimes you need great tasting food with mimimal hassle.
