A delectable dine at home experience

How to cook good food, Surrey

By Sara Hardy– 7th December 2020
What I loved about How to Cook Good Food, the dine at home experience:

Laura provides restaurant quality home cooked food delivered straight to your plate in the comfort of your own home.


Worth paying a babysitter?

Save your pennies! The beauty of dine at home is that there is no need for a babysitter!



Mouth-watering dishes, beautifully presented and carefully packaged. The instructions for reheating are thorough and come with a comprehensive list of ingredients with allergens highlighted.


Value for money: (8 out of 10)

Laura is a Surrey based private chef, supper club host and cookery tutor so expect exceptionally high standards when you work with her. You absolutely get what you pay for with Laura with excellence as standard.

She created her dine at home experience after having to temporarily close her Epsom Supper Club. Laura shares her love and enjoyment of cooking by bringing her delicious plates to your door. She believes that food makes life good and I agree with her entirely.

We started with smoked salmon arancini with saffron aioli. These beautifully rolled arancini were perfectly balanced with a hint of lemon and subtle taste of smoked salmon. Wonderfully light and a perfect introduction to this mouth-watering meal.


To follow, we enjoyed shin of beef with braised red cabbage, honey roasted roots and duck fat roast potatoes. On a cold December’s evening this was exactly the heart-warming dish that we craved.  The beef was gloriously succulent despite having been reheated in our oven as per the instructions. The sauce was rich and tangy with prunes providing a modest hint of Christmas spice. The roasted roots and braised red cabbage were both beautifully prepared and flavoured, and together with the beef were a true celebration of winter foods. The duck fat roast potatoes were brilliantly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, just how they should be! Laura’s lifelong love of cooking is reflected in her food; she is influenced by seasonal produce and loves creating interesting flavour combinations.


To finish, we each enjoyed a large slice of chocolate roulade.  Those who know me well know that I am a one tricky pony when it comes to making desserts; my one trick being a chocolate roulade. The only person who has made one for me is my mother (hers is fabulous!) and now Laura. Laura has certainly given us a run for our money; hers was absolutely delicious and the portion was very generous. What I love about chocolate roulade is how dense flavours such as dark chocolate and double cream can be made into such a delicate dessert.


Last but absolutely not least, was the festive cake box selection that Laura is offering in the run up to Christmas. Featuring many sumptuous treats such as gingerbread, chocolate orange cookies, mince pies, blondies and brownies this box will be a wonderful gift for any lucky recipient.

I can’t recommend Laura highly enough, she is lovely to work with and her food speaks for itself.
