"New American cuisine with Asian influence"

Chef Luciana Peguet was born and raised in Argentina, and has been in New York for three years. She began cooking at eight years old, as a game with a friend, and hasn’t stopped since. Her two biggest influences as a chef are her father, who taught her how to cook, and Francis Mallmann, a well-known Argentinian chef. Luciana loves to cook Indian and Thai cuisine, and she has recently started experimenting with Persian, Israeli, and Lebanese dishes. A balanced diet is important to her, so she really enjoys cooking vegetables and grains. Her favorite dish to prepare for CookUnity is Chicken Korma, because of its rich yet healthy, and full of spices and vegetables.

Very good, but since...

Very good, but since this highly spiced dish already had sliced carrots in it, I would have preferred a different side dish other than sliced carrots - maybe some kind of cold cucumber/yogurt combination?

Didn't love the potatoes

Gregory

Didn't love the potatoes

Nihar
01/09/2018

A little too much cardamom or some such spice. Feels like it was thrown in to the dish and not properly cooked with it

Jordan
01/07/2018

It was so good! Came looking just like the picture and tasted amazing.

Petra
01/06/2018

best meal I've had on cookunity so far! Great chef .

Daniel
12/22/2017

I don’t ever like salmon, and this was great

Lauren
12/15/2017

Didn't like flavor, too saucy. Chicken tasted off. Does not stack up to other Cook Unity entrees.

Mary
12/13/2017

Warm flavors, tender lamb, perfectly spiced. Very satisfying.

Mary
12/13/2017

Very good. I wish more offerings came with cauliflower rice.

Marcela

Delicious and toddler approved!

Gregorio
10/27/2017

chicken was a little too uniformly diced. spice level could go up a notch.

Aimee
10/26/2017

Tasted more like an Afghan kabili than a Moroccan tagine. Soup was awful and cheesy.

Aimee
10/26/2017

Tender

Barry
10/24/2017

One of the best cookunity meals I've had. Chicken was perfectly cooked. The sauce was delicious. The barley was very good and I liked he barley and the pistachios in it were a nice touch. Will definitely order again.

Carrie
10/10/2017

So yummy! Loved this meal!

Albert
10/05/2017

Beef was tender, flavor was great.

Barry
10/04/2017

The flavor was good but salmon was undercooked and raw in the middle. Don't mind this at a restaurant but feel not safe when being delivered and not refrigerated the whole time.

Bomin
09/29/2017

Good flavor and sauce was surprisingly enough for the amount given. Overall portion of the meal was a little small compared to other dishes.

Julia
09/28/2017

Nice sauce but chicken a little dry

Jennifer
09/26/2017

Too much lemongrass which is really tough. It ruined this dish.

Roman
09/25/2017

Absolutely delicious.

Julien
09/21/2017

Amazing! So gooooooood!!!

Aimee
09/13/2017

Good but spicy.

Paula
09/11/2017

I did not enjoy the sauce. I ate most of my salmon without sauce. Rice was ok

Paula
09/11/2017

Really nice flavor. Portion a bit too large. I would rather have 4 Mulfatti instead of 6 and have them on a bed of spinach.

Laurel
09/10/2017

Bland and mushy dish. Won't be ordering again.

Christina
09/07/2017

Chicken was tender but the cauliflower rice was bland

Manuel
09/06/2017

Muy ricas Lu ! Pero más grande mi porción la próxima :)

Roman
09/03/2017

Definitely one of my favorite meals from Cook Unity. The mashed potatoes are some of the best I have had!

Julie
08/29/2017

One of the best that I've tried! SO delicious!!

Heather
08/29/2017

This was good but very rich, maybe a little too much spinach/sauce.

Ashley
08/26/2017

Everything about the flavors of this meal was great! The flavor of the dish did not even need the sauce on the side. The cucumber salad was also tasty. Only critique is there was a lot of quinoa (maybe more veggies would make it more balanced?)

Stella
08/23/2017

This was the best meal I've had through CU so far! Thank you for making my taste buds dance ;)

Clara
08/17/2017

Tasty but the cucumber salad side looked old, was rubbery and inedible

Stella
08/17/2017

Good but too much quinoa and broccoli was too spicy

Christina
08/16/2017

Amazingly tender, really tasty!

Claudia
08/16/2017

So so so so soooo yummyyyy!!! Will def order this one again!

Julien
08/03/2017

Out of this world. To die for. This one of my favorite dishes ever. Not only from cook unity. From anyone. Anywhere. And I've eaten everything. Everywhere. I personally would prefer the salmon a little more on the rare side, but yeah, rare or not, I want this for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the rest of my life. Thanks.

Adam
08/03/2017

meat was unexpectedly very tender and delightful! veggies were yummy but could have used a little more firmness and love?

Mallika
08/02/2017

Delicious, well balanced flavor. I look forward to trying it again.

Mallika
08/02/2017

One of my favorite dishes, and always consistently made!

Salmon is fresh every time. The chutney was really tasty, too.

John
07/29/2017

The shrimp continue to be surprisingly filling. The quinoa was good, and the veg (onions + peppers) were tasty. The sauce was very good; I drizzled it over the quinoa and it was awesome.

Julien
07/29/2017

Off the chains. Perfection in your mouth.

Carla
07/28/2017

This is wonderful... please keep on menu xo

This dish just wasn't flavorful.

Niamh
07/17/2017

this was the nicest shrimp ever!

Katrina
07/17/2017

Slightly bland, could use more chicken. Otherwise a nice healthy option for dinner.

Brian
07/14/2017

Some of the best Indian food I have had in NYC

Brian

Loved it.

Erin
07/11/2017

One of my new favorites! Salmon cooked perfectly and loved the addition of the peppers in the rice mixture. Delicious!

jake
07/10/2017

There is something off about the taste. Can't at what exactly.

Erin
07/07/2017

One of my new favorite meals! I absolutely loved this. Loved the sauce and quinoa side.

Julien
07/07/2017

Hot damn! This gem of a meal is an instant favorite. Top five cookunity meals for sure. And I've had them all. I'm a cookunity all star.

Eytan

Not that tasty!

Soogyung
06/16/2017

Beef was delicious and quinoa was flavorful. I had sand/dirt on quinoa. This is the second time it has happened.

Sarah
06/04/2017

Not good. Mushy consistency and too salty. Couldn't eat it.

Ipsita
05/30/2017

This meal tasted the best from this delivery! The curry was very good.

Sylvia
05/27/2017

A little to spicy

Julien
05/27/2017

Insane. Out of this world. Scrumptious.

Darlene
05/26/2017

Delicious!

Colin
05/26/2017

One of the best meals I have eaten

Harrison
05/23/2017

Extremely salty. Tasted like a salt shaker was spilled in the dish. Could not even finish it. The beef also did not taste slow-cooked and was not rare enough considering it had to be reheated.

Frances
05/23/2017

Love the flavors and healthy and tasty ingredients!

kristin
05/22/2017

Delicious Salmon!

Alejandro

Alyse
05/20/2017

Just ok

Francesco
05/20/2017

excellent

Francesco
05/20/2017

sauce was not intense enough for me (spicy etc) but lots of food and it was good.

Natasha
05/17/2017

It was cery good - but I would have loved a little more sauce (and no bell peppers!)

Piglet
05/14/2017

Mmm! The earthy farro is balanced by the brightness of the asparagus & herbs & lemon. Could use a touch more herbalness.

Stanley
05/13/2017

A bit on the dry side w/ excellent, tangy lemon glaze. Likely won't order again

Paul
05/12/2017

It tasted great! And it traveled well Thank you for making it for me. Will order it again.

Sylvia
05/06/2017

Loved every bite

Rebecca
05/05/2017

Delicious!

Rita
05/04/2017

This meal was really not good, asparagus was not washed and it felt like I was eating sand. Steak was tasting strange and very gamy. I am not 100% but o thin that instead of farro I had pearl barley

Rita
05/04/2017

I felt that I was eating sand instead of a meal!

Alessandra
05/04/2017

Skirt steak was delicious. loved the lemon asparagus Farro. I love brussel sprouts but not these to heavy on the cumin and very mushy.

Alessandra
05/04/2017

the tomato accoutrement was very oily. otherwise all was good

Stephanie Elaine
05/04/2017

Excellent frosting, the cake was slightly dry on the bottom.

Wincy
05/03/2017

Love the taste, brings me back to Thailand!

Caitlin
05/02/2017

There didn't seem to be any chutney included. Couscous was a bit dry once reheated, but nice flavor for the chicken with cilantro cream.

Hilarion
05/02/2017

Omg so freaking good!!!

Chong
05/02/2017

Quiche was delicious and portions generous. It was almost as big as my face. The green beans also cooked just right and complemented the quiche very well.

kay
05/01/2017

Small portions. But delicious.

Erin
04/29/2017

There was literally 3 small bite size pieces of steak ( and all greasy veggies ) .. It might have been 1oz of beef.. cannot believe I paid 20 bucks for it Right now and last few times have been not good at all- too much sodium too! I am not a very picky eater but I work in the restaurant industry with a BS in dietetics and it's extremely imortant to not load a dish with oil And salt.. can you please ration out proper portions I feel so ripped off right now! I could have gone to the store and got a bag of stir fry and made it with olive oil and would have been the same.. ( with 4 portions ) honestly I dug thru the dish and 3 1/2 inch pieces of beef.. I wish I took a pic but didn't realize it till I finished my 3 bites !

Jennifer
04/26/2017

Tasted like pure salt and nothing like pad Thai

Danny
04/26/2017

Delicious. A bigger portion is in order though.

Eytan
04/25/2017

Amazing

Rebecca
04/25/2017

Stephen
04/17/2017

This was the driest loaf cake I have ever had. When I unwrapped it, the icing was so dried out it all cracked and fell off. I won't be ordering this again.

Andrea
04/16/2017

Like very much although the cake was somewhat dry on the bottom. Amazing frosting!

Ali
04/15/2017

Always good

Wim
04/07/2017

Luv Luv Luv the Lentil Vegetarian Dinner last night!! Christopher our resident very discerning vegetarian had both orders. Wim PS Keep the vegetarian options coming please

Reilly
04/02/2017

I wasn't expecting such great flavor out of this meal! Loved the coconut milk, and loved how the cauliflower rice soaked up the sauce. Super delish!

Reilly
04/02/2017

LOVED this meal! Such great flavor from the sauce - made it all the better that the meal was healthy as well!

Pilar
03/31/2017

Amazing flavour!

Pilar
03/31/2017

Best malfatti in town!

Pilar
03/31/2017

Small Portion

Andrea
03/31/2017

I've had this dish twice and both times amazing.

Andrea
03/31/2017

LOVE this dish! It is healthier than the traditional Indian meal...not as rich, but just as tasty. Would love to see healthy versions of other Indian meals too!

Juan
03/30/2017

Size could be a bit bigger

Juan
03/30/2017

Amazing, the size is perfect and the food tastes great!

Susan
03/28/2017

dry

Christina
03/22/2017

Just okay. Chicken was dry and overall portion size/presentation was disappointing. More broccoli needed.

Pilar
03/17/2017

So good and healthy! Absolutely delicious!

Nancy
03/09/2017

Very good!

Julia
03/08/2017

very filling

Tiffani
03/08/2017

Very dry and crumbly. Carrot cake typically has walnuts which this does not. Also a massive portion - not in the description!

Barbara
03/08/2017

Awful. I have no idea what kind of meat this was. It was dark brown thin and very hard. The crust was good and the potatoes okay

David
03/07/2017

SCHNITZEL was under seasoned. Potatoes had too many green onions.

Judith
02/18/2017

both lemon and carrot cake are consistently overcooked

heather
02/11/2017

pretty dry

Andrea
02/02/2017

Very flavorful and healthy; better than the Thai food we order through Seamless!

Christina
01/30/2017

Interesting and flavorful dish. Very satisfying.

Robin
01/27/2017

Nice small loaf. Size not clear from photo.

heather
01/26/2017

Flavor was good, but consistency of Quinoa a little too liquid.

Christina
01/25/2017

Tasty with a good, unexpected kick, but out of the 6-7 shrimp included, one was just a tail, and one was just half a shrimp.

Denise
01/22/2017

Did not get this item. I got the apple bread again, which is too sweet.

Denise
01/22/2017

Have not eaten yet.

Helena
01/22/2017

Juicy but just not my taste profile.

Michelle
01/22/2017

One of my faves!!!

Daniel
01/19/2017

Excellent! I am a fan of lentils but even if you are not you'll like this dish. Good flavor, Good portion, Good value and delivered on time. What more can one want?

Anvesh
01/19/2017

Please make it again

rebecca
01/19/2017

Very satisfying and filling.

heather
01/18/2017

salmon and mushrooms were delicious, but caramelized onions seem like a weird match for this dish. Did not eat those.

Sarah
01/15/2017

A bit salty but good.

Barbara
01/15/2017

Really very good combination. Love the way cauliflower is being used these days. Great withbtgecsalmon.

Carla
01/12/2017

This is great !!!!! The mixture of different tastes wonderful x

heather
01/10/2017

Delicious!

Kelly
01/10/2017

Enjoyed this.

Kelly
01/10/2017

Was not a fan, I dumped it.

Pilar
12/27/2016

The best malfattis I've ever tried, for real, this meal is absolutely DELICIOUS

Aimee
12/19/2016

good

Aimee
12/19/2016

good but could use more chicken and less chutney.

Aimee
12/19/2016

Not enough meat on chicken for a meal.

Aimee
12/19/2016

excellent

Christina
12/14/2016

I was very pleased with the portion size of this meal. The sauce was delicious as was the salmon and rice. One of my new favorites.

Nicki
12/14/2016

Excellent

Nicki
12/14/2016

Outstanding- great flavor, perfectly cooked , will order again

Barbara
12/11/2016

Okay. Salad was good and crust on quiche was great. Very sad as I got an apple and no cookie as a treat. So addicted to those cookies

Barbara
12/11/2016

Not for me. I didn't like the sauce and the couscous were pebbly and dry. Chicken was okay but to thick and dry. Soup was excellent. Missed my cookie. Not an apple fan

Lynn
12/10/2016

Wasn't particularly fond of my meal today. The rice seemed to be hard even after microwaving repeatedly.

Lynn
12/07/2016

The lemon loaf was very good, just a little dry. Would like to see this recipe moistened down a bit.

Stephanie
11/29/2016

I did not receive the roasted salmon with cauliflower cream. I did receive a different fish entree, but was not notified of the substitution.

Gail
11/18/2016

loved the combo of Salmon and Cauliflower

Christina
11/17/2016

LOVED the couscous. Very good meal

heather
11/13/2016

Schnitzel was a little dry. Potatoes were delicious.

Giulia
11/12/2016

Rice was hard and undercooked and the chicken didn't have much of a taste

Harrison
10/29/2016

This was shockingly bad! Almost like half of the incredients were left out. Extremely bland, could not even tell it was beef. The "sauce" was just a few tomato and onion chunks. First bad experience with CookUnity.

Christina
10/27/2016

This was very good, but arrived with the sauce already poured over it rather than in a container, so I had to heat and eat it immediately.

hillary
10/26/2016

The food was tasty, the sauce was lovely and i like the roasted veggie sides. Just one thing, because I'm not that adept at cooking in a microwave: maybe the directions could provide more direction. It said to heat in microwave for 2minutes. That cooked most of the salmon, but as I do not like rare salmon, i put back into the microwave for another 30 seconds. it was almost perfect, but i was too afraid to put back again for fear I'd dry it out. maybe the directions could say2 minutes for medium, 3minutes completely cooked? something like that.

Chris
10/26/2016

Delicious and light

Rishav
10/26/2016

The mint sauce was very over-powering and took a weird consistency after microwaving.

Richard
10/21/2016

Party in my mouth! Perfect Thai seasoning, delicious sauce.

Yeqing
10/19/2016

The gnocchi was weird and had more of a bread pudding texture and looked like flattened meatballs. more so than actual gnocchi. It tasted pretty fatty and there was no vegetables to break up the creamy, rich taste so it left me feeling heavy and sleepy after lunch. The tomato gazpacho was good but I wish there was more of it.

Yeqing
10/18/2016

This was so amazingly good!

Louise
10/13/2016

Tasty really delicious

victoria
10/13/2016

Salmon was overcooked which makes me hesitant to order fish again, because it often gets overcooked from the microwave

Amanda
10/09/2016

So very, very good! The spinach filling was amazing, the mushroom sauce, delicious, and the garlicky beans were a great side dish. It was maybe a smidgen too salty, but I'm overly sensitive to salt; all in all, it was one of my favorite delivery meals ever. I hope it comes around again.

katie
10/07/2016

The side dish was wonderful

Amy
10/04/2016

Love the flavors - sweet onions, savory goat cheese. Unique! Only suggestion is the onions left a lot of excess water behind, poured it out before cooking.

Sarah
09/14/2016

This meal was ok. It would have been better with cheese inside the crepe instead of the sauce in my opinion.

Gregory
09/12/2016

So good! I just wanted more and more!!

Vince
09/10/2016

Way too much apple chutney but otherwise excellent

Rebecca
09/03/2016

The crepes were delicious! Really rich and the mushrooms were cooked perfect. Didn't get to try the cold beet soup because it came with another side. : (

Dan
09/03/2016

Your web site doesn't mention that the food shows up cold! "As simple as Seamless" and "Tasty-fresh dinner on your table" does not make it clear that I have to heat up the food myself. Seems like you're intentionally hiding it.

Judith
09/02/2016

everything very good...

Darcy
08/09/2016

This was an odd dish--it tasted like spinach in a heavy cream sauce, and the dumplings didn't have much substance or flavor. I ordered it partly because the description compared it to gnocchi, but it didn't taste (or look) anything like gnocchi.

Aimee
07/28/2016

Salmon was fishy.
