It’s the most wonderful time of the year with UCOOK

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And how better to ruin that wonderful festive feeling than by battling the shops at this time of year for your Christmas groceries.

Luckily, UCOOK has you covered with their festive summer menu that makes for the perfect Christmas lunch or dinner, with dishes that are simpler than ever to cook.

The Christmas meal forms part of the standard UCOOK weekly offering – with a choice of either two, three or four meals delivered for one, two, or four people. Each UCOOK dish has been developed with less preparation time in mind, and can be enjoyed as starters, sides or mains, depending on the size of your Christmas meal with friends and family. Having a small get together? You can combine three UCOOK dishes into a festive meal. If you’re having a bigger lunch, bring your choices along as side or mains that will feed up to four people each.

The menu is available for order between 11 December and 18 December 2019. Delivery is standard and will occur on either the 22 December or 23 December – just in time for Christmas Day.
