Who is behind the You Plate It concept?
Paul and Mark are two mates who are passionate about food and believe cooking a delicious dinner at home should be easy. They met at work back in 2007 but after several years in the corporate world wanted a change and to do something they were genuinely interested in. Paul is a keen cook who loves to experiment in the kitchen and Mark is quite the foodie but tended to leave the cooking to others until he signed himself up to a You Plate It plan.
How did the idea for You Plate It come to be?
We’d often get to the end of the day and be asking ourselves ‘ok, what are we going to have for dinner?’ We’d then search online for some recipe inspiration, rush to the shops, get home and do all the food preparation before getting to the task we actually enjoyed, the cooking. Sometimes there just wasn’t enough hours in the day to juggle everything and we found ourselves making food choices that weren’t always healthy.
That got us thinking…
What if there’s a way to enable busy professionals and time poor families to easily create varied, healthy home cooked meals. A way to outsource the time and hassle of planning meals, going to the shops and measuring ingredients.
So here you have You Plate It.
You Plate It aims to help busy professionals and time poor families eat healthy home cooked meals without the usual hassle that goes with planning weekly meals, going to the shops, finding ingredients and preparing meals. It’s also for people looking for a little variety and inspiration with their weekly menus, those that enjoy cooking or who are looking to get into cooking more. The selection of dishes always means there is a vegetarian option as well.
What makes You Plate It unique?
