I rate all the food items & then give a final overall rating which is a simple average of the individual item ratings. What the ratings stand for: 5 = Excellent, 4 = Very Good, 3 = Good, 2 = Fair, 1 = Disaster.

Short Description – in case u r in a hurry:

I got to know about this concept from a promotional email. The concept sounded very interesting. it was home delivery of 100% ingredients of a dish in right proportions , including salt. ‘We shop, chop and prep, box and deliver. U cook and njoy’ said the advertisement in ‘home’ section. In office section the meals were more of assemble and eat.

The dishes were a mix of European daily food and occasional food.

Unlike any other home delivery, one has to make efforts to cook the food. Very unique concept I must say, but not the first one in gurgaon I guess.

We have rated both the dishes inspite of us having ‘cooked’ it coz 80% contribution in making the food good was of innerchef.com.we had to just follow steps.

Step u step recipe was given in a printed paper. All ingredients were given in different sized plastic / aluminium foil containers.

As we started cooking we realised the following:

The step by step process was very easy to follow. Any average to good cook can churn out excellent results and njoy with guests, friends and family. For a novice it might still b a challenge.

However at few places the end to a step was not properly defined.

eg

  1. there was a plastic container for water measure. In the recipe it was not mentioned how many portions of water had to b put.
  2. In one dish there were 3 containers of butter ( including small size and big size). Butter had to b used on 2 occasions. Which occasion needed big butter and which needed small butter was not mentioned.

Detailed Description – In case u have the Time to NJOY reading:

Our first dish was Ledeberg river sole fish, sautéed vegetables and mashed potatoes.

Finished product was as good as any dish in the best of the restaurants in delhi (wud cost approx rs. 800 – 1200). The fish was charred and crisp on the outer side and soft, flaky and slightly juicy inside.

Lemon butter sauce and capers made it excellent. They instructed us to place the fish on a bed of mashed potato. Awesome was the mashed potato. The sautéed veggies were crunchy ( they said how many minutes, how much heat etc) . Overall rate the dish 4.5/5.

Our second dish was Laken Halle bacon – German cut bacon and tomato sauce pasta. This was much easier to make. The large amount of tomato purée did not make the pasta disturbingly tomatoeeee. It was perfect. Chilly flakes added a got twist. Salt was perfect.

Flavours of olive, Parmesan, basil and parsley all made their presence felt in addition to the over powering flavour of bacon. The instruction on the bacon was ‘golden brown’. In hindsight I shud Hv cooked it lesser than that. Rate this dish 4.5/5 again.

Grilled chicken pesto

Day 3

We ordered grilled chicken pesto pasta. The recipe was well explained and was easy to carry out.

The pasta came out well but I think  the proportion of cream was too much. That mellowed down the effect of good pesto.
