Our Michelin Chefs Cook series puts the spotlight on ingredients handled by expert hands, highlighting the beauty of simple seasonal ingredients and pantry basics and exploring their full potential from the simple to the sophisticated.
Between the convenience of food delivery apps and ‘I don’t have time to cook’ excuses, it’s easy to fall into a rut of takeouts more often than you (deep inside know) should. We know how great it can be pulling on some comfy pants and munching down on Chinese while scrolling through Netflix. But we're here - with recipes - to convince you, that you don’t have to order in to enjoy your favourite takeout foods.
The next time you are about to reach over for your phone, do yourself a favour and try making one of these in your own kitchen. Your local takeout guy (or delivery man) won’t miss you, and your tastebuds will thank you.
To get you off on the right foot, we’ve selected only the best from the best: Michelin starred chefs’ recipes for takeout classics.
