Local companies that we love: COOK IT
We made it into COOK IT’s new Pantry and we want to celebrate! What better way to do it than to talk about why we love this company and their fabulous concept?

COOK IT is a Montreal-based, meal-kit company that offers you 10 delicious recipes every week. Each of them is made with fresh and local ingredients and are all fast and easy to prepare; they take between 15 and 30 minutes. Those of you with even less time on their hands will be happy to learn that COOK IT also offers ready-to-eat meals without additional fees. All you need is 5 minutes to heat them and you’re good to go!

These options are perfect for the busy ones amongst us (we’re all guilty of that!) and they’re less expensive and much healthier than takeout. And, since you only get the ingredients you need, there’s no waste! It’s so easy and you don’t have to worry about planning and finding new recipes. Better yet, a chef and a nutritionist create each meal so they’re delicious as well as being nutritious! No wonder they were named the best ready-to-cook company by Protégez-vous magazine!

COOK IT is also well aware that many meal-kit companies have unrealistic formats, since they’re mostly based on a classic nuclear family. Instead, COOK IT has a much more modern approach: they offer plans with 2, 3, 4 or 6 portions, and points out that a half-portion is perfect for a child.

Since they want to simplify our life as much as they can, they also created little videos showing us how to prepare certain recipes, which you can find on their website. 

Now, let’s get into why we’re really here. Last month, COOK IT introduced a new concept: a Pantry section! On there, you’ll find a variety of Quebec-made products that you can add to your weekly box to satisfy your in-between-meals cravings. Fruit baskets from the Marché Jean-Talon, Dose smoothies and cold-pressed juices, Oatbox granola bars and even coffee capsules from Café Liégeois. You’re sure to find what you need for breakfast or even a late-night snack. Of course, you’ll also find our candy bags :)
