About Us

One name, one aim: to make home cooking more attractive than fast food. Even if you’re crap at cooking.

Cooking after work sucks. But it doesn’t have to.

A busy day, a busy life. Who wants to spend their evening in the kitchen anyway? And let’s be fair, if we do, half of what we do make just doesn’t taste quite right. It’s easier just to grab something on the way home from work, right? Wrong.

At HurryTheFoodUp, ALL of our recipes can be made and cooked in less than thirty minutes, and most in much under twenty. The ingredients are easy to get hold of, and our recipes could be followed by a mildly confused meerkat.

Healthy food tastes like cardboard. But it doesn’t have to.

You may well be able to swear like Gordon Ramsay, but let’s be honest – you’re probably lying if you reckon you can cook like him. ALL of our recipes are tasty, and by following them you’ll soon be creating dishes that you can proudly share with friends or loved ones (if you don’t love your friends, that is).

We eat what companies and governments tell us to. But we don’t have to.

Knowing what is healthy and what is not is a bit of a minefield. We research absolutely ALL of our recipes, and we share our knowledge with you – so you know exactly what you are eating. Our claims come from respected and well-versed organisations such as Harvard University Studies, or the World Health Organisation (WHO). No company-bankrolled surveys for us.

Why are you guys doing this? You don’t have to.

HurryTheFoodUp is our attempt to win back the fight against what we put in our bodies. Our bodies, our choice. Join us.

About Howie:

Just a couple of years ago I started to develop a passion for cooking. Still, most of the time I want healthy food, and it has to be fast and tasty. I don’t want to pay a fortune for it either, so I have to make it myself. I’m currently living in Berlin.

About Dave:

I’ve always enjoyed cooking, however I have better things to do with my time than spend it slaving in the kitchen. Now that I have a young family of my own I want all the benefits of eating right but I want it to be fun and tasty too. I’m currently living in Hamburg.

About Kat:

I was a food nightmare when I was younger. I hardly ate anything, no matter what my parents tried. Except chocolate, which I’m still addicted to. And although I was brought up with it, I always felt uncomfortable eating meat. These days I love all things related to food and enjoy a meat-free life. I’m from near Hamburg and currently live there with Dave, our son Joshua and our cats. Did I mention I love chocolate?
