The ICYS story

it started with an onion…

… and a recipe for soup

It all started with an onion and a recipe for soup! Read our stories below about how I Cook You Serve began and how we’re grown to become Northampton’s premier home-delivery caterer. 


Homemade Food

There is no better welcome than the waft of a homemade meal.  We use natural ingredients and let those flavours sing.

Tailored to your taste

Your meals are cooked in small batches to ensure consistency in our portions and to sidestep those pesky allergies.  When we’re in control of that ingredients list, we can personalise the cook to your preference.

We care about what we do

Your food is as important to us as it is to you. We take it personally and we consider it’s a privilege to prepare.

Making your life easier

We want to take the chore out of not only your meal requirements but the meal planning shopping and then give you your time back without compromising on quality.

Founder & Cook

Liz Murphy

Hello, my name is Liz and I Cook You Serve started with little more than an onion and a recipe for soup. Back in 2011 it was just something that fitted with my young family.  The idea for I Cook You Serve was born 10 years prior to its birth however, when I had to choose between time with my daughter and preparing a nutritious family meal after a day’s work. I saw a gap in the market.  I felt the alternatives of a takeaway or a ping meal were both unhealthy and unsustainable.

I knew I couldn’t be alone in this, and the idea of cooking simple evening meals for busy families was born. So I would cook and the clients would serve.

Today the ping meals have improved dramatically, and a meal service is as commonplace as using cleaners or gardening service. Today that daughter is now business partner.

Nutritional Therapist

Shannon Howe

Hello, Shannon here. I joined the business in August 2018 but have lived the business since it’s conception in 2011. I studied a Nutritional Therapy course while at university studying Classical studies with Egyptian Culture. The course appealed to my natural inclination to find out why we eat what we eat, and how food can have such a huge impact on our body and state of mind. The more I studied the more questions were raised and this appealed to the researcher within and utilised the skills that have been so well exercised while successfully completing my degree.

So, as clients have presented with so many diverse requirements, I go and study the very latest scientific research in order to pass on the best and most up to date information. I am now quite unshockable when looking at client food diaries and take huge satisfaction from identifying potential nutritional deficiencies in otherwise perfectly healthy individuals and those who want help with symptoms of a pre-diagnosed condition.

I am happy to present to your workplace or community group in order to promote the benefits of good nutrition. Because nutrition has such a broad spectrum, I will adapt the presentation to whatever message you want to communicate, be to reduce the amount of absenteeism or to optimise your performance in a specific area.

I am also is the first contact in most of the communications in the business from the online presence or networking, again appealing to my natural organisational skills.
