Amy Thompson loves wholesome, delicious food and the opportunity it creates in fostering community. As a celebrated young business leader in Toowoomba, she is Head Monkey over at Monkey Business Catering; founded in 2015 and winner of the 2018 Heritage Bank Business Excellence Award Business of the Year.
Carrying on the legacy of previous owners, Dan and Edwina Farquhar (talented founders of The Finch Café—also a Heritage Bank Business Excellence Awards category winner), Amy jumped at the opportunity to take over iCooked in May 2021 to serving the people of Toowoomba delicious, nutritious meals that make life just that little bit easier.
From 1 July 2023, iCooked will also serve the customers of Janelle's Kitchen, another Toowoomba local home style meal provider. This is the second business acquisition of Monkey Business Catering, iCooked's parent company.
Our food philosophy
At iCooked, we celebrate the fact that eating healthy can still be really flavoursome and exciting. Feeling good means eating meals with good quality ingredients and at iCooked we go to great lengths to source the best produce available. We enjoy long standing relationships with trusted local suppliers so that our ingredients are fresh and can be safely frozen.
Our ready to serve meals taste homemade because they are. We make everything from scratch in small batches, we don’t use fillers and we don’t have high salt content in our food. All our ingredients have the least amount of processing possible. For example, we do not use margarine or vegetable oil – only pure butter and premium olive oil.
Our menu evolves each week depending on what’s in season and what our customers say they love. Each meal is packed with wholesome goodness that tastes amazing and is ready to serve quickly. That means you really can take a guilt-free night or two off cooking every week and know that you’re still eating well, just as if you’d gone to the effort of cooking.
Who is iCooked for?
iCooked ready to serve meals are for absolutely everyone! Not many people have the time or energy to cook a delicious, nutritious meal every single night of the week. Having iCooked in the freezer means you can have a night or two off cooking without feeling guilty and spend more time doing the things you love. Our meals are a much healthier, tastier and often more economical option that eating takeaway. Size doesn’t matter - our portions serve big groups well and are also great for single people and older folks who don’t want to cook just for one.
How iCooked works
Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday after 11am, iCooked will home deliver your choice of scrumptious meals made from scratch in various sizes. You simply order here online with no strings attached - as little or as much as you’d like, as often as you’d like. The menu changes each week with popular meals appearing more often and meals are delivered either fresh or frozen.
iCooked gives you back your evenings. You’ll have most iCooked meals ready on your table in just 30 minutes. All you need to do is re-heat or cook.
You can have your meals delivered to either your home or workplace at time that’s convenient for you. Rather pick it up yourself? You can collect your order from the iCooked kitchen 2/1 Civil Court, Harlaxton any week day between 9 am and 2 pm (excepting Fridays where you need to collect by midday!).
If you have any questions about delivery, please send us an email here.
