If you love cooking but want help to take the hard work out of planning and prepping your meals, food subscription services are worth a look.


Silver Surfers reports that like other subscription services, the model is simple – you sign up and pay a weekly or monthly fee and get food delivered fresh to your door on a day you arrange. There’s dozens of different ways to take advantage of food subscription services – you can sign up for meal boxes, which deliver all the ingredients and recipes you need to make a meal, or sign up for speciality food boxes that let you try new flavours every month. They make great gifts for any home cooks who are lacking inspiration in the kitchen, too. Here’s a few of our favourite food subscription boxes available to buy in the UK.

The Cheese Society

The Cheese Society does exactly what it says on the tin. Each month you get a selection of high end cheeses from small producers in a range of styles and strengths. If there’s one you like you can go back and buy cheeses individually, too.


Gousto is a home recipe service. Instead of shopping for groceries, you sign up and choose from a range of healthy delicious recipes you’d like to try. You receive a delivery of recipe cards and pre-portioned ingredients, so all you need to do is cook and enjoy.

Hello Fresh

Like Gousto, Hello Fresh you can customise a weekly menu based on your preferences. A culinary team creates delicious, healthy, and easy-to-follow recipes. You get a weekly delivery of everything you need to cook the dishes and get stuck in preparing it for yourself.

Cure & Simple

Bacon lovers, look no further. Cure & Simple is a bacon delivery service – you choose whether you want deliveries through the post once a week, once a fortnight or once a month and choose your flavour. You can get traditional smoked or unsmoked, a mixture of different flavours, or really push the boat out with new infusions like Thai back bacon.

Abel & Cole

Abel & Cole specialise in organic fruit and veg, so with this food box you’re getting the best. You can choose from a classic, vegetarian or ‘foodie’ box and get weekly deliveries of all the ingredients you need to make a great meal at home.
