Announcing an exciting collaboration with new recipe box company Screen to Plate
You may have seen me sharing on social media recently that I’m hugely exciting to be working with a brand new recipe box company called Screen To Plate. Their aim is to bring the recipes from your screen into your kitchens.
Screen to Plate are turning some of my recipes into meal kits that contain all the exact quantities of ingredients you need to cook it a home, delivered right to your door!
Here’s what the creators of Screen to Plate have to say:
“We’re a totally new start-up that has been started by a group of food-obsessed friends who love watching food and cooking content on YouTube and other forms of social media, but often find we don’t have the time to shop for all of the ingredients to recreate the recipes we’re watching. We also really like the concept of meal kits but have often found the recipes sold by current meal kit companies (that we’ve used as customers) to be lacking in variety, quality and authenticity.”
My Screen to Plate Collaboration
My partnership with Screen to Plate is exciting for two reasons. Firstly, this is the first recipe box company in the UK to be collaborating with online influencers to bring the recipes you see online, into your kitchens. For example, this could be a blog recipe, a You Tube recipe and in my case, even a cookbook recipe highlighted on my blog.
It’s great to think that we could all soon be watching a recipe video and then ordering a box of all the exact quantities of ingredients for that recipe, and get it delivered to your door.
Secondly, it gives me a chance during the pilot to introduce Screen to Plate customers to some of my favourite, but perhaps lesser-known Polish ingredients through my recipe collection.
My first recipe is for Spaghetti with Polish Kabanos, Spinach and Feta. This recipe uses kabanos, a smoked Polish sausage; an ingredient that I very often use in the same way as Spanish chorizo or Italian pancetta. I think kabanos deserves a little more recognition. Pasta is a great weeknight staple for us and we love to jazz things up using interesting ingredients so I hope you’ll give this recipe a whirl too, through a Screen to Plate box.

My second recipe going into the Screen to Plate meal-kits is taken from my book Wild Honey and Rye: Modern Polish Recipes. You’ll see this recipe was previously highlighted on my blog here. It’s a recipe for Venison with Squash Puree and Greens. Again, this is another quick and easy weeknight recipe with both venison and pumpkin/squash being in season.
My third recipe is inspired by one of the most popular recipes on my blog here. My version for the Screen to Plate boxes is delicate and quick, too – Cod with Mash and Dill Butter Sauce.
We’re going to be sending the kits out with the ingredients for a classic Polish cucumber and sour cream salad called Mizeria. For me, this recipe works for the whole family and it invokes some of the memories I have of eating Polish home cooking, which is super-comforting and perfect for this blustery autumn/winter weather.
How to Order
The concept is straightforward. You can sign up for more information here, where there’s also a special offer for £10 off the cost of a box with a minimum spend of £30.
Benefits of Becoming a Screen to Plate Customer:
- Takes away all the hassle of recipe planning and food shopping by providing you with a convenient and easy to use online ordering platform.
- Each ingredient is pre-measured, delivered straight to your door. So, no more making long shopping lists or having to buy inconvenient quantities of ingredients.
- From the brand new Screen to Plate portal, you just select the recipe you like, and can choose between two and four people. No subscription needed.
- Unlike a standard meal kit company, which tries to think up recipes that it assumes customers might like, Screen to Plate are selling meals from viewers’ favourite cooking influencers – so these are the meal kits you really want to cook.
- Screen to Plate are also committed to using recyclable, reusable and/or biodegradable packaging where possible. They will also be using zero-emissions delivery services for some postcode.
My third recipe for Screen to Plate is Cod with Mash, Dill Butter Sauce and ‘Mizeria’ a cucumber salad.
I’m very happy to be an early adopter and to be partnering with this scheme and I’m excited to see all these recipes come to life in your kitchens. It’s time to start cooking some of the recipes that you see online rather than just drooling at your screen!
