*This post is in association with Gousto
We have been eager to try out some recipes from Gousto for quite some time now, so it is safe to say that I was excited to give them a try!
Placing an Order
When placing the order for our Gousto box, I was surprised with how many choices there were. There was a mixture of some of my favourite meals as well as an array of meals that I have never tried.
Packaging & Delivery
When our box arrived, I noticed just how wonderfully packaged it all was and with such care. The recipes included a few breakable items such as eggs, and they arrived in perfect condition. The fresh ingredients were contained within a chilled box, surrounded by wool and ice packs to keep everything fresh.
Within the box, we received handy easy to follow recipe cards that made every meal a doddle!
Value for Money
We found the ingredients were value for money. At around £5 per serving, it isn’t the cheapest food you can buy but you really do get value for what you pay. All of the ingredients are fresh and high quality – Gousto don’t scrimp on the quality of your food (and definitely not on portion sizes either).
My Tasty Recipes
We decided to choose an old favourite that we often enjoy together as well as something that we have never tried before and wouldn’t normally cook ourselves.
I picked out: ‘Honey Roasted Ham, Egg & Chips’ and ‘Greek Chicken & Feta Bake’.
Our favourite was the honey roasted ham, no surprise there! Jamie is incredibly fussy when it comes to potato, so I was dreading him trying out our recipes, but he cleaned his plate. If he eats every last scrap of a meal that includes any type of potato, you’ve done good!
The chicken bake was also delicious and I’m so glad I picked it out as it wouldn’t have been something I would normally choose.
Who Would Like Gousto?
I think Gousto is perfect for anyone who doesn’t have a whole lot of time to prep their meals. Everything comes pre-prepped for you, making it quick and simple for those with busy schedules.
Due to the price, it isn’t something that we would have too often but we would consider purchasing boxes every now and then.
Both me and my partner have said that we will be purchasing Gousto boxes in the future. We shared one of our recipes with Jamie’s Mum too, when we invited her around for dinner and she is already mentioning about placing her order too!!
“Delicious, the nicest chips and gammon I’ve had in ages!” – My partner, as he went up for more kale.
I was pleased with the packaging and how it’s been designed for people who aren’t always home for deliveries. If your package is left with a neighbour or in a safe place (like mine was) then your ingredients will be kept fresh for quite a while, giving you time to get home and unpack them.
Fancy trying your own Gousto box?

If you decide to order yourself a box to try, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did (and, why wouldn’t you?). If you try it out, I would love to hear back from you with what you thought.
