Our platform allows you to remove ingredients from your chosen recipes that you already have at home as well as allowing you to alter the serving size (recipe dependent) for the number of people you are cooking each recipe for.

How is cost per serving calculated?

The cost per serving is calculated based on a number of factors, including but not limited to:

• The serving size recommend by the chef;
• The cost of core ingredients for that serving size from your chosen supermarket; and
• The total number and type of recipes you selected.

Therefore, the actual cost per serving may be different at checkout based on these variables which have been updated to suit your specific needs.
