Inspired by our cooks very own travels

Hello! Thanks for
visiting our city kitchen.

Each of our well-travelled creations has been inspired by our cooks' very own travels and are made freshly, with wonderful ingredients.

That’s why our meals look and taste so deliciously fresh and, we think, always give you a taste of something a little bit different. We really hope you enjoy what you've chosen today. We certainly enjoyed making it!

We’re passionate about bold authentic flavours and fresh quality ingredients, so have combined this with the inspiration gained from our travels around the world to create the World Flavours Handbook. With some of our favourite recipes, the Handbook is an insight into a few of the stranger ingredients from around the globe and some interesting top tips and facts.

Cooking tips



Where is The City Kitchen based?
All of our City Kitchen meals are lovingly prepared by a team of quality cooks in our Mosley Street kitchens. The ingredients are responsibly sourced and are selected to ensure that only the finest make the cut to be part of a City Kitchen meal.

Do your products contain nuts?
Currently nuts are an ingredient in only a few of our recipes; please see packs in store or on to see which ones. Due to the nature of our kitchen, we unfortunately cannot guarantee that all of our other products are nut free.

Are your products suitable for Vegans?
Sorry no our meaty products are very meaty indeed and our Vegetables with Coconut & Lentil Pilaff is not suitable for vegans as the vegetable bouillon used in our recipe contains honey.

Where can I buy your products?
Our City Kitchen meals are exclusive to Tesco. Simply pop to your nearest store or try Tesco online grocery to see if City Kitchen can be delivered to your doorstep.

Is your packaging recyclable?
No. At the moment our packaging is not recyclable. We wanted the dishes to be quite tough so they don't go all limp in the microwave. This means, our dishes are brilliant to reuse around the house for numerous tasks. Lunchboxes, for instance, for those times when you're forced not to have a City Kitchen meal, pencil cases or storage boxes for knick-knacks.

Can I freeze your meals?
Our meals are best eaten fresh and are not suitable for home freezing as some of the delicious flavours get lost when our meals are frozen.

Do your meals contain additives or preservatives?
No and no. Our meals are freshly prepared to ensure that the best quality is available to you everyday. Our ingredients are first-rate so we don't need to fake it by adding in mystery ingredients.

I do not own a microwave, is there an alternative way for me to heat the meals?
just decant the contents into an oven proof dish covered in foil, place in a pre-heated oven for around 25 minutes (190 degrees or gas mark 5) until piping hot. Then simply stir before serving and be careful, the dish will be hot.
