Smiling Cook

Ready-to-use fresh pasta, perfectly cooked “al dente”

The Smiling Cook offers a range of ready-to-use pasta and pasta sauces. The fresh pasta is already perfectly cooked “al dente” and immediately IQF deep frozen as a natural preservation method. Reheating only takes 30 seconds.

No preservatives and long shelf life

The pasta sauces cater for a broad variety of tastes. They’ve been conditioned in microwave resistant 1kg-pouches, do not contain any preservatives and have a long shelf life without cooling.
