Our Story


To deliver nutritious and delicious cuisine to our clients

Planning menus, shopping for ingredients, and ultimately preparing healthy, nutritious meals is a time consuming chore. With our busy lives it can be difficult to find the time and energy to prepare healthy meals. This is where Why Cook? comes in.

Using the freshest and healthiest ingredients our talented chefs prepare pre-packaged meals that are tasty and entirely stress-free for our customers.  Our cook and chill process ensures the freshness and quality of our meals
without the use of additives or preservatives. We work diligently to maintain our reputation for creating the highest-quality, nutritionally balanced and delicious cuisine.


Why Cook? has been operating within the South East Queensland and Northern NSW markets since 2009, when we began supplying healthy balanced meals for Queensland’s kids through school tuckshops under the Tuck Shop Chef brand.

Since mid-2014, we started distribution of single serve fresh meals to Service stations. Today you can find our meals at selected retailers and you can purchase meals here on our website for home delivery to selected Brisbane postcodes, or pickup from our kitchen at The Gap.

Our meals are developed by a Nutritionist and prepared by an internationally trained Head Chef with more than 20 years experience. We follow the Smart Choice Green Category philosophy of preparing meals by selecting lean cuts of beef or chicken and using less oil and reduced sodium in our meals. This helps us deliver healthier, balanced and scrumptious meals to our customers.

Safety Record

Our kitchen is proud of our very High food safety record, with 100,000’s meals delivered to schools and homes without any issues.

Eat Safe Rating

We have been consistently awarded the highest Eat Safe 5 Star Rating in Brisbane rating by Brisbane City Council.
