Cheeky Chicken and Chorizo Pie

On Friday 8th August my Cookisto offering is a taste of Spain with a Chicken and Chorizo Pie.

Full flavoured with spicy chicken, peppers and paprika sausage with a homemade pie crust served with a simple Potato, Bean and Olive Salad. Just £8 per portion.

Staying with a taste of summer holidays, I’ve had requests for Moussaka again!! Ever eager to please, this will be on the Cookisto menu for 22nd August at £7.50 per portion with an optional Spinach, Cheese and Potato Pie for £2 per portion.

After a short break, the Cookisto night will be on 19th September, so watch out for future menus - AND details of the Bread Making Classes I’m starting in October. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer and thank you to those of you who have supported the Cookisto so far.

Moussaka / Cookisto Goes Greek!

Crikes, DiCooks' 4th Cookisto night is nearly upon us - with tasty takeaways ready to pick up on Friday June 20th June.

The last Cookisto offering of Thai Fishcakes, Jasmine Rice and Sweet Chilli Dip went down a storm, resulting in my highest order total to date. Thank you to everyone for your support and generous feedback! 

From the Far East to a little closer to home - for my next Cookisto night, I shall be cooking up a classic eastern mediterranean dish drenched in Greek flavours - the much overlooked Moussaka. Perfect with a simple salad, my Moussaka will be layered with beef and pork, cooked to perfection and will cost only £7.50 per portion.

Throw in a glass of Retsina, cross your fingers for some evening warmth and one could be relaxing on a Greek island...

I shall also be offering an option to buy some of my famed Spanakopita for only £2.00 per slice too, but please don't forget that orders need to be in before 4pm on Wednesday June 18th - you can contact me here.  

Cookisto travels to the Far East!

Di's 3rd Cookisto night is ready to go for Friday 6th June.

This week's delicious offering is Thai Fishcakes packed full of sensational south asian flavours, accompanied by Jasmine Rice and my own Sweet Chilli Dip. Check out the teaser snapshot above to get your mouth watering! 

Don't forget to place your orders before 4pm on 4th June - click here for contact details.

Thai & Di - what a combo :-)

Serious Temptation...

Rustic cooking or what! 

Here's quick glimpse of this week's Cookisto dish - which is Braised Pork with new potatoes, garnished with soured cream and fresh dill slowly maturing on the hob. 

I'm also putting in a sneaky cabbage and caraway salad with shavings of pickled cucumbers... come on, where else are you going to get such a cracking takeaway in North Herts? Or anywhere else for that matter?

Don't forget to place your orders here before 6pm on Wednesday 21st May.

It's Friday Night and it's DiCooks Cookisto Night!

DiCooks' First Cookisto!

The early evening of May 9th 2014 witnessed DiCooks' first Cookisto night, and what a fantastic beginning to my new 'foodie heaven' enterprise it was - all customers were very excited to be part of my fresh culinary service cooked in my home kitchen in Aston, Hertfordshire.

Some customers had heard through the local grapevine, others in local media, that my first dishes for sale were Chicken Tagine + Jewelled Couscous, home baked Maneesh,  Black Olive + Pinenut bread and Labneh. I met some lovely people that I'd never met before and we even managed to share a glass of celebratory wine with them!

I was seriously chuffed to receive the following comments & feedback later in the evening. Here are few to tempt you into placing an order for my next Cookisto on 23rd May. You contact me diana@dicooks.co.uk or 07811 356046.

"Wow! That was amazing! We loved our takeaway - it was delish, and we weren't expecting the 'extras' which were wonderful, so long may your enterprise continue and I think we will be regulars! Portion control - probably could have shared one c-c between two? But much better to have too much than too little! Xx Marg" / Margaret & Geoff Gibbs

"Hi Diana - We have just finished eating and we both agreed that the food was delicious. It all worked really well together (along with the yoghurt) and the flavours were really lovely. You could not have done anything to improve it. Could we also order 2 portions of the PORK AND NEW POTATOES for the 23rd May. Regards Graz & Tony" / Graz & Tony Murphy
