UCOOK invites you to The Feast, with Franck Dangereux

UCOOK invites you to The Feast, with Franck Dangereux

With December being such a significant time of the year for family get-togethers, UCOOK has gone the extra mile to make it your best holiday yet. The brand has teamed up with world-renowned chef Franck Dangereux and Yuppiechef to bring you the festive feast of a lifetime, and an experience never before seen in South Africa.

The UCOOK feast box, filled with ingredients and recipes designed by Franck, will be delivered to your home or holiday house before the 24th December, just in time for you to prepare a delicious spread for up to 16 friends and family members (at a fraction of the cost). And what’s more, you’ll get to skip the boring stuff, like queues and last-minute supermarket trips.

Drawing inspiration from his French heritage and love for feasting, Franck Dangereux’s chosen dishes will include recipes for smoked salmon rosti starters, five sides (including the crispiest roast potatoes you’ve ever tasted) and your choice of Duck à L’Orange, fillet, chicken or pork belly. Franck’s brought a personal touch to each of the dishes on the menu, from the pork belly, which incorporates foraged pine needles, to the rostis, which are finished with a sprinkling of pink peppercorns – beautifully bright and native to South Africa. It’s these little touches that make the dishes a home run for festive feasting.

If you haven’t heard of the inimitable Franck – you’ll certainly know him by his restaurants. Previously the head chef and co-founder of La Colombe (then voted one of the top 15 restaurants in the world), he now owns The Foodbarn and Foodbarn Deli in Noordhoek – two of the city’s most popular spots for fine dining and rustic farmhouse breakfasts.

To discover more about the feast, and to order your box, head to UCOOK.co.za, select how many people you want to cook for, and decide on your choice of protein(s). You’ll then get everything delivered to you in one go on the 22nd of December. Plus, if you order selected Christmas gifts or feasting necessities on Yuppiechef, you’ll get 30% o_ your festive UCOOK box.

As SA’s most-loved dinner kit delivery service, UCOOK.co.za curates 9 new recipes for you to choose from each week, and delivers the fresh, organic ingredients to your door.

Buon appetito!

With nothing but a suitcase full of dreams and her faithful friend ‘the cello’, Cecilia Di Cecco left Italy to work as a musician with the KZNPO in Durban. Here she learnt to cultivate her music and at the same time began a love affair with food that eventually led to the recent launch of her first cookbook, Cucina in South Africa.
