has today launched their recipes, a range of brand new limited-edition recipes created in collaboration with five independent restaurants across the UK.

Spanning Palestinian, Thai-Irish fusion, Vietnamese, British bistro and Mexican dishes, the new recipes are packed with local passion. Available from today, home cooks can order the recipes in their Gousto box and support local eateries that aren’t just on their doorsteps, but hundreds of miles away too.

As part of the launch, Gousto is enabling foodies who get involved to tip the restaurant team directly via a partnership with cashless tipping platform TiPJAR.

The new recipes include Squash & Garlic Mushroom Gnocchi for dinner from Scott & Wilson in North Shields and Spicy Vietnamese Chilli & Ginger Aubergine Stir Fry from Noya’s Kitchen in Bath.

There is Cardiff-favourite La Pantera’s tangy Mexican Chorizo, Feta & Parmentier Potato Tacos, and the team at MC & Sons ‘Thairish’ Public House and Kitchen in London have created a Thai Chicken Khao Soi Curry

Chicken Musakhan with Cucumber & Parsley salad is from Manchester’s Baity Palestinian Kitchen.

Foodies have until the end of May to try the new recipes.

Noya Pawlyn owner of Noya’s Kitchen in Bath said: “It’s been a tough year for the hospitality industry, but it’s been extremely heart-warming to see the nation get behind us and other indie restaurants with Gousto’s Cookstarter campaign – you have no idea how much we appreciate the support.

“We hope our signature Chilli & Ginger Aubergine Stir Fry helps bring the beautifully balanced flavours of Vietnam to people’s homes. We’d love for friends and families across the nation to enjoy our dish together, just as we do!”

The five restaurants were chosen out of 15,000 nominations from across the UK, as part of .

In addition to each listing a recipe on Gousto’s menu, the indie winners have collectively received £50k in funding, as well as a year-long programme of business mentoring from the brand’s leadership team.

Cookstarter, which first kicked-off in January this year backed by foodie celebrities Joe Wicks and Gizzi Erskine, as well as comedian Katherine Ryan, aims to support independent restaurants during challenging times.

In a survey, 7 in 10 Brits said they feared that variety in Britain’s food scene was under threat because of the pandemic, and 82% would like to be able to do more to help them.

Gousto’s Food Director Kathryn Huxtable said: “ stands for variety and choice at dinnertime, whether that’s eating in or out.

“So we’re encouraging the nation to support the variety of the UK’s food culture with our limited edition Cookstarter recipes.

“The public response to the campaign has been phenomenal, and it’s clear that the nation really does care about protecting our diverse food culture.

“Our five finalists showcase the vibrancy and variety of food that the UK has to offer, and we can’t wait to bring these delicious recipes to people’s kitchens as part of our 50-strong weekly menu.”

Baity Palestinian Kitchen in Manchester is bringing the spices and succulent meats of Palestine to home kitchens with this Musakhan Chicken.

Chicken thighs are perfectly seasoned and cooked until crispy, then served on traditional stone-baked bread with caramelised onions, roasted onion, cucumber yoghurt and a cooling cucumber and parsley salad.

Scott & Wilson in North Shields are famous for their modern British cuisine, that uses fresh local produce.

Pillowy potato gnocchi is stirred into a creamy butternut squash cheese sauce, then baked with spinach, mushroom, melty mozzarella and Italian hard cheese.

Simply topped with a drizzle of olive and a grind of black pepper, this dish is served up bubbling, golden and delicious.

Noya’s Kitchen in Bath offers a window to the vibrant, aromatic flavours of Vietnam.

For this flavour packed stir-fry, tender roasted aubergine will be coated in a punchy homemade chilli and ginger sauce then served over lemongrass rice.

It’s topped with sliced spring onion, chopped fresh coriander, roasted peanuts and toasted sesame seeds.

Mc & Son’s is an London-based Irish Public House and Thai Kitchen.

Native to Northern Thailand, this fragrant Khao Soi (or ‘drunken) curry with noodles will be topped with pickled shallot, sliced spring onion and crispy noodles and garnished with fresh lime.

We hear it’s best served with a perfectly poured pint of Guinness. Sláinte!

La Pantera in Cardiff, “the home of the unauthentic taco”, is bringing a fiesta of Mexican flavours with tasty tacos loaded with smoky chorizo, parmentier potatoes and zingy red cabbage slaw.

Drizzled in punchy chipotle mayo and garnished with a sprinkling of spring onion and creamy feta, these tacos are best served with a generous helping of mezcal.
