Ocado video recipies

I’ve been using Ocado, the online delivery arm of Waitrose supermarket, ever since day 1. I’ve only just noticed, however, that the Ocado website features videos of recipes and, I presume, how to cook them. If you are someone who, unlike me, has time and inclination to cook "properly", it might be worth checking out, as the recipes certainly sound nice — and based on my experience of those Waitrose recipe cards that you pick up when you actually go round the supermarket in person (long-ago days!), the end results will be good. I like the idea of watching the recipe video, then ordering the ingredients and having them delivered, all from the comfort of one’s own desktop. (Only theoretically, in my case, of course!) Some examples of the videos on offer:

  • Bangers with grainy mustard or horseradish mash
  • Children’s pizzas
  • Parma ham wrapped figs with raspberry dressing and a dolcelatte and rocket salad
  • Gremolata lamb rack with Hasselback potatoes
  • Butternut Squash Soup
  • Mediterranean Vegetable Lasagne
  • Traditional Greek Salad
  • Pasta with meat balls in tomato sauce
  • Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Rice and Mushrooms
  • Lamb burger in ciabatta with salad and relish
  • Simple chicken Caesar salad
  • Steamed smoked haddock, green beans and crushed new potatoes
  • Crêpes with flambéed caramel maple bananas

    1. I am starving, and your post has not helped!!! Our nearest Waitrose is in Okehampton!
      My wife has not yet mastered our new cooker and I have a medical check on wednesday, and therefore need to lose 5 kg in 3 days.
      I will not be looking at these videos.

    2. Ah, but check out Ocado, Norm — you may not have to brave Okehampton! But, sympathise about the recipes, just reading the titles is more than I can take. Sounds like it is a water diet for you until after Wednesday.

    3. Sadly, Ocado does not recognize the existence of Cromer. We do have a fabulous local deli, butcher and greengrocer, though, as well as two wet-fish shops (count ’em) and at least four off-the-boat Cromer crab vendors. Support yer local shops!!

    4. I know this is uncool, especially since I never comment here (I do read you, though), but I wanted to stop by and inform you and your readers about the GBA(s)FC #2 (a short fiction contest), which kicks off May 1st over on my blog. Hope to see you there.
      Sorry to post off-topic. I’m really not generally a comment-spammer.
