LE BON BAG
This French firm is a giant in the industry and its premise is to produce meals that are as close to restaurant quality as possible. Portions are vacuum-sealed in aluminium pouches and can be boiled in their bags or heated in a conventional oven.
The cuisse de canard confite (confit duck leg) is super tender and juicy – if plated up with vegetables and potatoes you’d never guess it had come out of a sachet with a 3-year shelf life. On the downside this option falls short of being a complete meal in a bag and needs to be accompanied by carbohydrate and veg. It’s one of a range of 20 different recipes in which classic French meat dishes figure heavily. 9/10
