Now You're Cooking Gousto box review

*AD - GIFTED* I am a huge cooking fan and love making new meals from scratch. So when Gousto contacted me I couldn't wait to try out one of their boxes for myself.

Gousto box subscription service

Gousto is a subscription service that delivers everything you need to cook delicious meals straight to your door. They offer 6 different subscriptions.

  • 2 recipes for 2 people - £27.49 per week
  • 2 recipes for 4 people - £41.99 per week
  • 3 recipes for 2 people - £34.99 per week
  • 3 recipes for 4 people - £51.99 per week
  • 4 recipes for 2 people - £41.99 per week
  • 4 recipes for 4 people - £59.99 per week

You can pick the recipes sent each week from their huge menu range that changes each week. There are plenty of meat and fish choices as well as vegetation options. Allergen information is clearly shown on each recipe too. Weekly delivery is the default option but you can cancel, pause and skip weeks at any time. Everything arrives in a large box and is already measured in to the portion sizes you will need for each recipe.

Gousto box American Chicken and Creamed Corn

The first recipe I chose for my Gousto box is American Chicken, Creamed Corn and Sweet Potato  Fries. The recipe card is incredibly easy to follow with each step broken down with photos and a description. From starting cooking to sitting down and eating is about 30 minutes.

The chicken is delicious and still moist. The sweet potato fries (or wedges if you cut them like me) are crisp on the outside and soft inside. The creamed corn is really tasty but quite sickly so I only had a little bit.

Gousto box Posh Open Burger and Rosemary Chips

The second recipe in my Gousto box is Post Open Burger with Rosemary Chips. The recipe card is again easy to follow with each step broken down with photos and a description. From starting cooking to sitting down and eating is about 50 minutes.

The burger is moist and juicy but it is huge! I will definitely make 4 out of it and not 2 next time. The brioche bun is a nice change from regular bread buns. I especially love the rosemary chips, they are delicious and will be a regular thing from now on! The homemade ketchup is a really nice touch although I did have to put it in the blender before serving.

Gousto box review

I absolutely love the Gousto box. The ingredients are really fresh and both meals are easy to follow and taste amazing. The subscription fee is a little pricey though. Each meal works out at £6.87 which is a lot more than I usually spend. However the convenience of fresh food arriving at my door and not checking my cupboards for what I have in, shopping, weighing and measuring ingredients does make up for that. I won't be getting a box every week but I am pausing my subscription and will be getting boxes now and again.
