Home cookin’ for busy folk

SmartCompany /

If you want to impress that special someone, there’s no better move than to invite them over for a delicious meal, cooked by yours truly. But what if you’re a super busy person who doesn’t have the time to do all that pesky shopping and chopping?

According to Springwise, a new Singapore service called I Love Mother has stepped into the breach. They’re not a meal delivery service – that would be cheating – but rather a tailor-made shopping and ingredient delivery business.

You nominate the meal you want from a list, including drinks and desert, and then I Love Mother’s elves scurry about buying ingredients from local fresh food markets and deliver it to your door. And if you’re really time-tight, they’ll chop and blend the ingredients that need it for you, for a small additional charge.

They also provide the recipe to cook the meal, giving you the best possible chance of whipping up a winner. Then all you need to do is bask in the adoration of your highly impressed special friend.
