Our Story

A warm welcome from CookedLocal.com to all you home loving Cooks and Foodies out there.

Do you know...

Food waste is a big issue in developed countries. We throw away 7 million tonnes of food from our homes every year, the majority of which could have been eaten. It's costing us £12.5bn a year and is bad for the environment too.

The Idea …

We all enjoy fine food and sometimes overindulge. We feel guilty throwing out perfectly good food, but don't always wish to eat the same meal twice.

With CookedLocal.com Home Cooks who love cooking can easily plan and share their meals with people in their local community, town, city, etc.

If you want to show off your culinary skills as a Promising or Experienced Chef this is your opportunity to show off your talent and cater to those who are not able to sample sophisticated cuisine.
