Founder and Director of 1click2cook.com, Gill Levett was interviewed by several BBC radio teams this week about her innovative website that claims to transform subscribers’ daily cooking drudge into a pleasant money- and time- saving experience.

Gill Levett discussed with each broadcaster how the site manages to revolutionise users’ food shopping and cooking habits by delivering a whole week’s worth of meals to subscribers’ inbox each week. What makes the service unique is that these easy meal ideas are specifically chosen for the user based on a number of preferences, including budget.

Gill told BBC Radio Berkshire: “It takes you 5 minutes to sign up to the site and we do ask you several easy but relevant questions, including budget and time constraints, food dislikes, number of mouths to feed and also and most importantly, how long you have to cook each evening. Your own personal cyber-planner gets to work and hey presto, you get all the meals as well as the detailed shopping list. From there you either go online to shop, or take the list to the supermarket and stick to it!”

There are hundreds of quick and easy recipes on the site and users have described how they can save 30% of their weekly food shop, plus a lot of time planning what they are going to cook each week.

Gill points out that the actual cooking of the meal is quite relaxing, it’s the deciding what to cook that wastes so much time. Shoppers who are unprepared tend to panic when they get to shop, resorting to packet foods rather than the cheap and simple meals needed to save money in these difficult times.

Gill suggests that you take the challenge: “Try the site, which offers a one-month FREE trial and see how much time and money you can save. We at 1click2cook team know many stunned and delighted subscribers of the site who have come to absolutely love cooking their own 30 minute meals!”

At under £2 per week for a subscription, a subscriber can transform the weekly menu selection and save up to £740 a year just by planning the week a little better and only buying what they need – claim or reality?
