What they say: Charlie Bigham’s, creator of tasty dishes to pop in the oven, has launched a range of new recipes, celebrating grains and featuring a variety of sumptuous world flavours.

The new range is perfect for those wanting to have a more varied diet, but who don’t always have the time or desire to prepare meals from scratch.

Chicken Katsu Curry and Salmon Teriyaki are amongst the new recipes, as well as vegetarian options such as Cauliflower & Paneer Curry. Featuring flavoursome, top quality ingredients, each new dish offers a delicious, convenient meal made with the same care and attention as you would at home. Packaged in distinctive pairs of octagonal wooden trays, each dish is designed for two people.

What we say: “I have had Charlie Bigham pies before (which are lovely!) so I was keen to take a look at their new range and as soon as I saw Chicken Katsu Curry I knew that was the one I was taking home!

The ease of these meals are perfect for busy parents; pop in the oven and do nothing else! They always seem like a nice adult treat meal and they look appealing, and this curry smelt delicious while cooking too…

30 minutes was all that was needed. I had initially thought that the chicken pieces were a little on the small size but they were almost butterfly folded and had cooked perfectly. The rice was extremely tasty and I loved the crunch of the edamame beans.

This certainly does not taste like a ready-made meal, but much more a home-cooked, slaved over meal! At £8.50 for two people they are not cheap, but they are delicious and tasty and yes, I will be buying again!”


The new Charlie Bigham range is available from Waitrose and Tesco.

    Agree with both David and Christine`s comments. Very disappointed at overpriced Katsu Curry. Will definitely not be buying again. Nothing to commend it.

  2. Christine says:

    Absolutely agree with David’s comments.
    Had looked forward to trying this curry from the new range,
    as we enjoyed his dishes before.
    Dry and stodgy …. the cooking instructions not clear.
    Will not be buying again.

    Having enjoyed C.B.’s pies and other dishes from the range on very many occasions my wife and I found the Katsu Chicken a great disappointment. The rice combination we found stodgy and cloying, the portion of sauce was too sparing – but the chicken pieces, although at first sight small, were adequate and cooked well but overall this dish, for us, did not compare to everything else we have enjoyed from the range.
    I also wish that the cooking instructions would better employ plain English and not such terminology as ‘decant etc. etc.’
    which I find quite pretentious in relation to food.
