A Fresh New Food Concept: Kelly Cube

I’m trying something new for dinner tonight, a very cool cube aka the Kelly Cube. Basically, it’s food in a cube. Pardon? I’m not explaining myself very well am I. Ok ok… Kelly Cube is essentially a new health food concept and a very clever one at that, which takes wholesome fresh food and a great recipe to match all packaged in a simple clean box… voila! I’m about to have my first experience of Kelly Cube tonight. Thai Chicken Balls with a Crisp Thai Salad, a cube for two. I’ll keep you posted in a few hours.

The Preparation

I hashed up dinner for my girlfriend and l tonight using the Kelly Cube for two. I think I enjoyed making the Kelly Cube almost as much as I enjoyed devouring it. It was an interesting little project. The cube comes complete with all the ingredients required to make a meal packaged in a compact translucent box. The recipe card inside was pretty much fool proof. The meal was simple to make, the preparation time was possibly five minutes above what was prescribed, 15 or so minutes, and the cooking time was near exact around 20 minutes. I had fun cooking up the cube. I really enjoyed opening the pack, pulling out its contents and executing the instructions like a mini school project, only with instant gratification, a meal to share.

The Meal

One word… “wow!” These cubes aren’t all talk, tried and tested. The chicken balls were delicious with an amazing flavour. The rice was fluffy and wholesome and the salad was exactly what it promised, crisp! Apart from the amazing taste, I enjoyed the variety that came out of the cube (meatballs, salad and rice) and I was pretty impressed with the quantity as well.

The Verdict

I think this is a great little concept and would definitely go back to try another variety of Kelly Cube, maybe Lamb Rack with Harvest Grilled Vegetables next time. It’s quite a cute little pack, the ingredients are good quality local and fresh produce with a sensational meal as the end result. I love how there was no wastage and that everything in the pack is consumed with no leftovers. It’s fun and pretty affordable too, averaging at around $11.95 for a cube for one or $22.45 for a cube for two (other options are available). Founder and Managing Director Cameron Joss is also a passionate supporter of local Australian farmers and businesses which is probably one of the driving forces behind the Kelly Cube.
