About

Our story

Dan and Edwina Farquhar love superb quality food that can be easily shared with friends and family. They are the talent behind The Finch Café on Ruthven Street Toowoomba which is well known for it’s outstanding quality and was awarded the Hospitality Category Overall Winner at the 2017 Heritage Bank Business Excellence Awards. 

In 2017, Dan and Edwina jumped at the opportunity to take on iCooked so they could share even more of their passion for delicious, home cooked meals. With three kids of their own, they understand how busy everyday life can be and how it’s more important than ever to eat really well for vitality and energy. They are very excited to be delivering nutritious, iCooked ready to serve meals to the good people of Toowoomba and beyond and hope that this convenient service makes life just a little bit easier.

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. Gluten free? No worries. Many of our meals are already gluten free because when we cook from scratch we don’t need to use thickeners such as flour. In fact, 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 weekly 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 Thursday, 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 and pair your meal with whatever you prefer - with rice, vegetables or salad. It’s a much tastier, healthier, step up from takeaway as iCooked only use the finest local ingredients and make all meals from scratch.

Home deliveries are vacuum-sealed so they last up to a week in the fridge or can be stored in the freezer for whenever you want the night off. They come packed in a polystyrene box .

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 commercial kitchen at The North Toowoomba Bowls Club (2 Elworthy St) or our Sister business, The Finch (469 Ruthven Street).
