People like traditional and authentic food in Bristol. They tried my baklawa, mousaka and lentil balls and said that they are very rich of taste and delicious. Today, lots of them order my foods regularly. This feedbacks are made me happy and proud because as a woman it is very important to earn my own money and this is my dream job. I am so lucky to got an opportunity to live my dream.

Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

We charge a small commission only on the food you sell – usually 12.5% however we are currently running a new year offer of 0% commission for your first 2 months – which means you get 100% of the money for food you sell.

There are no extra costs.

Yes, you need to register with the Local Authority as a home-cook, which means you will be inspected to achieve a hygiene rating. This is a simple process and you can continue to cook and sell your food in the meantime. Once you are inspected, we expect you to achieve a 4* or 5* rating.

We also expect all cooks to have passed their Level 2 Certificate in Food Safety and Hygiene. This can easily be achieved online.

It will help if you can to speak and read/write English well enough to understand the process, and communicate clearly with buyers, especially around allergens and delivery/collection arrangements (you could get someone to help you with this).

The food you cook and sell through All About the Cooks will automatically be insured, but, once you are up and running, you might like to think about the extra security of having your own insurance.

We’d also like to meet you for an informal chat, ideally at our office in central Bristol.

Simply either start by creating your cook profile page or get in touch if you’d like learn more about the company or how it works.

Once you become a cook through our platform you’ll have the opportunity to create your own cook profile page. This is where you can share your story; a bit about you, what inspires you, your signature dishes and why you cook what you do. People aren’t just buying food, they are buying YOUR food, and the stories behind it.

Using location and a range of filters, people will discover your page and buy your food. It’s as simple as that!

People will also want to see pictures of your food, and we’ll help you to take photographs to make your food really appetising and delicious.

We will promote you in a weekly newsletter and across our social channels and we expect you to also use your social channels and network to drive people to your page.

You will be given your own unique URL (web page) and email address to make selling easy.

The things you do best. Whatever you love to cook and people love to eat.

This is up to you to decide what is best for you, and the food you cook. Customers could collect from your home or you might choose to deliver it yourself and charge a little extra for that.

We can connect you to third party if you’d like us to. 

You choose when and how you want to cook so this might be a regular day each week or you may want to take the week off.

We understand that some of our cooks will be fitting it around other things going on in their lives, so its important that they can be very flexible – that’s one of the great things about being one of our cooks – the power is in your hands.

Your creations, your price but we can also advise you on what is reasonable if you’d like.

It’s up to you what you charge for your food, although do remember that we will take a small commission (currently 0% for new cooks).

No, there are no direct costs, although we will deduct commission to cover our costs and to make sure you are adequately insured. So your costs relate to how much you sell.

People will pay for the food when they order on the website. Once we know its been received by a happy customer, we’ll process the payment to be made to you by bank transfer as soon as possible –  usually within a week.

When you start you’ll be provided with stickers to show the allergens that are present in each dish, branded complements slips and window stickers.

You will need to provide the actual food packaging and we encourage cooks to use recycled and compostable packaging. For example Greenman Packaging.
