Make better food easier!
Designer Menus apply commercial kitchen best practice and are based on a Food First & Pantry Plus framework.
This structure makes meal planning & provisioning easier, reducing food waste while offering a wide choice, with the freedom to make changes. Alternatively, shopping for individual recipes creates food waste and limits flexibility.
Smarter and easier shopping, with less waste. Choosing your meals from a costed menu, produces your list of ingredients for the week.
Designer Menus include restaurant-style meals, that expand your food lifestyle. Easy ad-free recipes plus weekly cooking sessions to improve your skills.
Outsource the planning hassle and just cook. A Personal Kitchen Coach researches weekly specials & recipes to deliver your custom family menu.
Plan your meals like ordering takeaway
Provisioning your pantry, fridge, & freezer should be as simple as ordering food delivery. Select from your weekly Designer Menu, or browse a digital eat street of virtual restaurant menus, to create your grocery order.
Save money with smarter shopping
Buy everything you need, and use everything you’ve bought. Your Designer Menus reduce the amount of food wasted from buying what you don’t need. Reduce stress by simply reducing the decisions you have to make.
Share the shopping list or order online
A lot of the pressure around preparing meals comes from being the only one that knows the plan and what is needed. Selecting the menu determines your shopping list. Tick off what you’ve already got, add some basics, share the list.
Control your food budget with costed menus
All recipes are costed at supermarket prices. You might choose fine steak, or fresh seafood, as well as simple dishes using mince, pasta, or rice. With costed menus, you can see the meals your budget will buy. (photo is a $3 meal)
You choose the quality and spend. You can eat well @ $5.00 or less per plate.
Meals that match the day and what you have on
Your Designer Menus structure different dishes for different days. From quick and simple mid-week meals like Tokyo Joe’s Teriyaki Salmon with rice, which is fast and fabulous, ready in around 15 to 20 minutes.
There’s also fine dining Saturdays and comfort food Sundays, where you double-cook for a Thursday night, and Friday is always casual, right?
12 Reasons why CooksClub Designer Menus

Better food management will reduce our food waste
Data shows that we waste 20% of the food we buy. If that is true for you, and you could save those dollars, then you could fuel your car on your food waste saving.
Food waste accounts for more than five percent of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions and costs the economy around $20 billion each year. Good reasons for us to try to do better.
Have your menus designed by your personal Kitchen Coach

A massive selection of fine food, the best brands, convenience meals, fresh produce . . . and of course you’re never buying anything you don’t like!
How CooksClub serves $16.00 meals on a $6.50 budget
You’ll never get this food from Hello Fresh or Marley Spoon – even on a $10.00 budget
Macadamia-crusted Blue Eye with asparagus and green beans is a recipe by Olivia Andrews at Delicious. It offers an amazing restaurant-quality fish meal that you can easily cook at home in around fifteen minutes.
Blue Eye Trevalla costs around $60 per kilo. The ingredients pictured here cost $16.00 per serve. The same would apply if you bought fine, aged beef fillet. When you buy from a meal kit supplier, each meal is costed to their $10.00 price-point, so you will never get a meal with $16.00 worth of ingredients.
When you source your supplies locally, the average Designer Menu meal will cost you $5.00 per serve. Selecting fine foods, where you pay $16.00, only changes your weekly budget to $6.50 per meal. In fact, you could have three or four fine food meals like this every week and still be within a $10.00 per meal average ingredient cost.
