Efficient Meal Prep with Nomenial: A Structured Approach

Nomenial’s batch cooking service is designed to bring efficiency and organisation to your kitchen. Our chefs follow a structured approach to ensure that all meals are prepared within the allocated time, providing you with delicious and nutritious meals without the hassle. Here’s how Nomenial’s structured meal prep process works:

Initial Prep Work for Maximum Efficiency

Nomenial chefs start each session with meticulous prep work. This foundational step is crucial for efficient meal preparation. By washing, cutting, and marinating ingredients beforehand, our chefs set the stage for a smooth cooking process.

  • Ingredient Preparation: Washing, cutting, and marinating.
  • Organised Workstation: Ensuring all tools and ingredients are ready.

This prep work minimises downtime during cooking, allowing chefs to move seamlessly from one task to the next.

Prioritising Longer Cooking Times

Our structured approach prioritises dishes based on their cooking times. Nomenial chefs begin with meals that require longer cooking times, such as slow-cooked stews or roasted meats. By starting these dishes first, we ensure they are cooked to perfection without delaying the preparation of other meals.

  • Long-Cooking Dishes First: Efficient use of time for slow-cooked meals.
  • Simultaneous Cooking: Preparing multiple dishes at once.

This method maximises the use of the allocated cooking time, ensuring that all meals are ready within the three-hour window.

Efficient Cooking Techniques

Nomenial chefs employ efficient cooking techniques to streamline the meal prep process. Techniques like batch cooking, where multiple servings are prepared simultaneously, and multitasking, such as sautéing vegetables while a stew simmers, ensure that every minute is used effectively.

  • Batch Cooking: Preparing multiple servings at once.
  • Multitasking: Managing several cooking processes concurrently.

These techniques reduce the overall cooking time and increase the number of meals prepared within each session.

Assembly and Packaging

Once cooking is complete, Nomenial chefs focus on assembly and packaging. Each meal is portioned into containers, labelled with the meal name, preparation date, and reheating instructions. This step ensures that meals are easy to store and serve.

  • Portioning: Dividing meals into serving sizes.
  • Labelling: Clear labels with meal details and instructions.

Proper assembly and packaging maintain the quality and freshness of the meals, making them convenient to reheat and enjoy.

Cooling and Storage

After assembly, meals are allowed to cool properly before being stored in the refrigerator or freezer. This step is essential for food safety and preserving the taste and texture of the meals.

  • Cooling: Ensuring meals cool before storage.
  • Safe Storage: Using high-quality containers for refrigeration or freezing.

This process ensures that your meals remain safe to eat and retain their quality over time.


Nomenial’s structured approach to meal prep combines efficiency and quality, ensuring you get the most out of your batch cooking sessions. Our chefs’ meticulous planning and execution mean you receive delicious, nutritious meals with minimal effort.
