Giveaway: Gousto

posted in: Competition, Food & Drink | 111

If you read my review on Sunday of the Gousto food delivery service, you will know that I had a couple of really lovely meals for which I had the food delivered to my door along with the recipe cards so I could cook gourmet dinners for LincsGeek and myself. Please go and read the review if you haven’t done so already…!

Gousto Delivery

The (very) lovely people at Gousto have offered me the chance to give away a food delivery to one of my Splodz Blogz readers. Very nice! The prize is two meals for two people, delivered to your door. You even get to choose the meals from their selection of recipes for your chosen week.

    I’d love to make a curry from scratch, but all the spices etc scare me, so that would have to be my choice!

  2. cathyj

    definately a curry I never know what spices to use, so having them all supplied would educate me, nom nom nomity nom xx

    I would love to make a nutloaf from scratch!!!! I am not vegetarian but I often buy a frozen nutloaf or nut cutlets because I love the nutty taste! I would love to make my own from scratch though as I had a vegetarian guest over for Christmas, and she was telling me about her mother’s homemade nutloaf and I was drooling lol!

  4. Shona J

    I’m craving Jamaican food. Curried Chicken, rice & peas. Fried dumplings, saltfish & callaloo. Mmm.

  7. MunchKim

    I’ve liked tham & signed up to their newsletter.

    If talent, time and money were no object I’d have to go for making the full tasting menu the Fat Duck serves. There are some amazing dishes on there (especially the Mad Hatters Tea Party) that I would love to try and I think they would be great fun to make as well ….. if it were possible for mere mortals to make them anyway!lol

  8. Eleanor

    I’d make a jacket potato with cheese because it’s my absolute favourite!

  9. jenniwren12

  12. anna m

    I would like to make some teriaki chicken have been wanting this for couple of days but not got ingredients in. also if skill was no barrier then would like to make a decent biryani mine always come out rubbish

  13. Sara Hughes

    Crab Ravioli In Seafood Bisque – which I have eaten out but totally lack the talent to make from scratch.

  14. Julie Brooke

    I would cook a Thai meal based entirely around seafood. Would use seabass, lobster, scallops and giant king prawns.

  15. Zoe Howarth

    Surf and turf – Rib Eye steak and lobster tail served with a side order of bearnaise and chimmichurri sauce. Ceasar salad to start, with NO ANCHOVIES!
    A selection of desserts served with clotted cream

  19. Lynn Doe

    If money was no object it would have to be a massive 16oz ribeye steak, medium rare with mixed wild mushrooms, real thick cut chunky chips and onion rings with a real beer battered coating. Delicious!!! (If only I could afford the 16oz ribeye!)

  20. joanna glasspool

    A Lamb Roast with all the trimming for all my family and friends, a lovely way to spend time together.

  21. alicia roberts

    Raymond Blanc’s quail’s egg ravioli. I spent a whole day cooking this dish with friends about a year or so back (you have to make your own pasta, etc) and it was one of the most wonderful things I’ve ever eaten. But the time and expense – never again!

  22. Katy C Johnston

    I would love to cook a Sunday roast dinner with all the trimmings, and coffee eclairs for pudding!

  23. Chantal

    Would love to cook a good paella. I love prawns so this would be great & the rice would be lovely & filling!

  24. Lynn Savage

    I love to cook and to try new recipes, this would be a great way to try new things without having to buy lots of different jars/bottles/pots of ingredients that would then sit in the cupboard and rarely get used.
    The quinoa burgers sound great and the mascapone cauliflower looks delicious. Oh and now I sound like a vegetarian, but I’m not, the sweet chilli noodles look great too.

  25. Joanna Smith

    Please read beyond that I would cook “spaghetti bolognese” because I would create it the way it ought to be made, with veal, beef, pancetta and chicken livers. I would use onion, garlic, parsley, carrot, celery, tomatoes, salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, basil, stock, red and white wine, and parmesan cheese.

  26. Attachment Mummy

    Um, I quite fancy a curry actually, so a lovely selection of veggie curries would fit the bill nicely! Already like on FB & subscribe by e-mail 🙂

  27. Sarah E

    If money were no issue, and ingredients no problem, I’d be making smoked whale ham tonight. At £35 a kilo, and with all the ethical issues, I’ll pass – tonight, anyway.

  28. Sheila Reeves

    at this minute I’d love butter chicken with mushroom bhaji, pilau rice and kulfi to finish :))

  29. Pipsoir

    A starter of scallops, black pudding and pea puree, a main of venison wellington, sweet potato and spinach, and for desert a rich creme brulee! Mmmmmm! And of course, a really good bottle of red!

  30. Lila B taylor

  33. Sarah Cooper

    Fresh tuna steaks with hollandaise sauce, new potatoes, asparagus and baby corn.

  35. Ivan

    Would have to be a Cheese soufflé – always wanted to try it and if money were no object if it went wrong I could always do another!

  36. Stephen Postlethwaite

    Real Chinese food like I used to eat when I lived there.. di san xian, tang cu li ji, gong bao ji ding, awwww yeah

  37. Eleanor Beavan

    I would have a huge banquet of lobster, oysters, squid and loads of other seafood. I love seafood and the more slippery and slimey the better 🙂

  38. Sue Robinson

    AI would make Chicken and Chorizo Paella – I have made it before but it doesn’t always turn out how it is supposed to.

  39. Mandy Edkins

    I would have Gorgonzola and Mushroom stuffed Beef Tenderloin with Merlot sauce

  40. Sarah Parker

    fillet steak in black peppercorn sauce and mushrooms and homemade chips

  41. donna baxter

    wow where to start!!! I would love seared scallops to start, followed by a huge mixed grill of lamb chops, steak, chicken breast, gammon, eggs, sausages, all done to perfection, with gorgeous crisp chips and salad. Then for dessert, yes I would find room!! It would need to be either a classic knickerbocker glory or an ouey goey chocolate fudge cake warm with cream.
    Just typing it makes me need a nap!!

  42. Ali Thorpe

    I like simple food so it would be fresh pasta with sundried tomatoes, roast garlic, homemade pesto and a little parmesan. A portion of Tiramisu would be perfect for pud and a glass of prosecco on the side!

  43. kathleen hooper

    Scallops, followed by swordfish steak with a huge mixed salad and chunky chips. then I’d have just enough for eton mess

  44. Angie Hoggett (@angiehoggett)

    For starter I would have Seared Scallops with Celeriac and Caramelised Apple. Main course would be a Lobster Risotto with Chanterelle Mushrooms and Black Truffles. This would be paired with a garlic and balsamic flat-bread. For dessert I’d have a Valrhona chocolate tart accompanied by raspberries and champagne. My mouth is salivating haha!!

  45. Katy spence

    It would have to be the entire 14 course Heston tasting menu from the Fat Duck!

  46. Emma Williams

    Roast Lamb with rosemary, red wine and garlic gravy accompanied by roasted winter vegetables followed by a chocolate chip brioche bread and butter pudding with cinnamon ice cream….Yom nom nom

  47. Hannah Whitling

    I’ve always wanted to try venison but havent had the money to do so, so it would definately be some top quality venison, though i dont know what with.

  48. caroline james

    I’m quite addicted to tacos at the moment, so I would have some real authentic Mexican tacos made with excellent quality minced beef and served with mounds of chopped salad, spicy cheese, cool salsa and basmati rice.

  49. Kate Williamson

    In this cold weather money does not need to be an object as you can’t beat a good old beef stew with freshly baked buttered rolls… Hungry already.

  50. Claire Tromans

    Something to do with Lobster… I adore Lobster, shame it doesn’t feel the same way about my purse!
