a cottage with cookaway on holiday recipe box on the doorstep

Holiday is a word that conjures the warmth of sunny beaches, the promise of exploration and relaxation and the joy of trying local cuisine.

Holiday horizons may be a little closer to home this year, but there’s no reason not to give your palate a holiday further afield.

If you are one of the lucky ones to have secured your self-catered holiday home, let us deliver a Cookaway on Holiday recipe box for your day of arrival, and while you enjoy your much-anticipated staycation, let your taste buds do the travelling.

At The Cookaway we are extremely excited about our partnership with Original Cottages, a country-wide collection of beautiful and unique holiday homes located in some of the country’s finest and far-flung locations.

Like us, Original Cottages is a family-run business, and like us, their care for their customers and attention to detail, sets them apart.

Our collaboration means Cookaway on Holiday recipe boxes can be ordered as part of your booking and delivered to your holiday home the day you arrive, or if you prefer, simply order from our website 2 days before required.

The securely packaged box will remain safely chilled for up to 8 hours and it will contain everything you need to create a delicious and authentic meal for you and your family.


So, while your feet explore the golden sands of the Norfolk coast, or your home-from-home takes you to the snow-tipped mountains and lakes of Wales, or to the sun-kissed vineyards of Kent, our world cuisine recipe boxes can transport you to Japan with sticky sweet Yakitori Chicken, Southern Italy with unctuous Chicken Cacciatora, or India with the bold, rich flavours of Lobia Masala, to name but a few.

Never has it been more important to make the most of time away from home and finding exciting holiday experiences that the whole family can partake in is a must. With opportunities still limited, creating a special meal together, and making an occasion of it, works well for all the family as well as for a party of two.


In the box, you will find the meat, fish or vegetables your recipe requires, along with spices, herbs, oils, flours and dairy products. For each course, there is a printed recipe card with the exact ingredients and instructions on how to create your meal.

★ With everything you need for your feast in the box, use your imagination to make the experience exciting and engaging for all: Dine al fresco for Mediterranean night with Gambas al Ajillo

★ Set your table so you can sit on the floor for Japanese night with Tofu Soboro Donburi

★ Or add a rich and elegant red wine and indulgent goodies from Hotel Chocolate to Chateaubriand with all the trimmings, for a French-inspired celebration.

With our chef-designed, global menus, high-quality ethically sourced ingredients and added extras like wine and chocolates, your holiday dining will transport you to your happy place. 

Our global cuisine, no subscription recipe boxes provide everything you need to create a restaurant-quality feast, quality oils, measured spices, fresh herbs and vegetables, with comprehensive step-by-step instructions and just a pinch of magic.
