It is no secret that Tony and I love a good meal! We love to eat out at restaurants (often paid for via mystery shopping) but we also love to cook from scratch, making delicious meals at a fraction of the cost of eating out. We were recently sent a Gousto box to try out, and I can't wait to tell you about it!

What was the food like?

I chose three recipes to test out:

Goan king prawn curry
Thai pork salad with lemongrass rice
Posh bunless burger and rosemary chips

The ingredients were fresh and looked great, I couldn't wait to get stuck in! Unfortunately I had to head off for a couple of days for a funeral, but everything was still fresh when I got back! Every meal was great fun to cook and I learned something new from each recipe. Gousto definitely does help to expand your cooking repertoire. Not only have I learned some new recipes, I have also learned some new cooking techniques.

My favourite was definitely the posh bunless burger with rosemary chips – it made a great Saturday night treat and stopped us from heading to a takeaway. Instead we had fun cooking together and enjoyed a tastier, healthier meal.
