Elizabeth Master started this new and ambitious concept barely a week ago in the food capital of the Sydney Inner West, Rozelle at 1 National Street. The Cook's Grocer wants to give you all the tools to help you becoming the best cook possible by providing in one bag all the ingredients necessary to cook a recipe for which you get the instructions manual, and like Ikea, you are expecting to provide your own basic tools like a stove, utensils and salt and pepper!
The menu consists of nine different dish and will change monthly, and currently proposes three vegetarian dishes. They come in 2 and 3 serves options, and the prices are reasonable, although you wouldn't buy a meal a day (well, this is not Lite'n Easy...). Soon you will be able to order online and get delivered. In the meantime, a visit to the shop will certainly enlighten you, as it provides a wide range of ingredients and non-prepared foods - mainly sourced from Salt Meat and Cheese, certainly a good reference - and this includes olive oils, , legumes, and cheese. There are plans to include crockery and kitchenware down the track.
Elizabeth trained as a Chef and has been involved in marketing food and liquor both in London and Sydney. As such, she is certainly well equipped to succeed with her original and insightful venture!
Born in France, well travelled, relocated to Sydney in 1997.
