Microconcept

Simultaneous reheating of pasta and sauce from the freezer opens new perspectives for every entrepreneur.

How does it work exactly?

All the pasta of The Smiling Cook are prepared with a fresh pasta dough, 100% 'al dente' cooked, and immediately frozen.
With the Microconcept, we even go one step further. After freezing, these pasta's are portioned and packed in steambags, which gives these pasta's, after regeneration, the perfect end result.
And with Spaghetti, Tagliatelle, Penne and a Rigatone glutenfree all the classics are available.
The same proces is used for our 2 freshfrozen pasta sauces. Delicious and traditional flavours, packed in the perfect portion, and again in convenient steambags. The result: Serving the perfect spaghetti bolognese or tagliatelle carbonara with the microwave!

What makes this concept so special?

Just read along:

  • restaurant quality: freshly made and immediately IQF frozen
  • perfect quality due to the separate heating of the 2 producten
  • flexibility: combine the desired sauce with the choosen pasta
  • no kitchen or investment required, just a microwave
  • speed of reheating
  • no waste: only portion packs for a complete 500-550g meal
  • no preparation / work / dishes
  • idiot proof, everybody can do it

That's why our steam bags for the microwave are the perfect solution to boost your turnover!

More than just Spaghetti Bolognese...

Ah, spaghetti Bolognese, a classic... But why not serve a delicious Carbonara. You could even serve it glutenfree, in combination with our Rigatone Glutenfree...
