No Bad Surprises

When you order ingredients and recipes from a food delivery service, you expect to receive every single ingredient necessary to prepare the meals you chose from the menu. However, this is usually not the case. Most companies of this kind expect you to have oil, salt, sugar, butter, milk, flour, and other basic ingredients, not to mention pots and pans and the standard kitchen gear. This can come as a rather unpleasant surprise, as you may find yourself lacking everything you need at moments when your hunger is just about to peak.
