Are you a busy working professional or full-time parent who has limited time to spend in the kitchen but appreciates a home-cooked meal and has an adventurous palate? If so, my "stock-your-freezer" meal preparation service is for you!
I will come to your kitchen on a mutually convenient weekend to prepare a variety of delicious dishes that hold up well to freezing and defrosting. All dishes will be packaged up in containers and placed in the refrigerator so you can decide what to eat in the next couple of days and what to freeze for longer storage. And, a bonus surprise may very well be waiting for you along with the food you requested when you return to the kitchen!
You will receive a different meal for each day. Each meal will contain four servings, packed together in a container. If you need more than four servings of each meal, please contact me for custom pricing.
Unless otherwise requested, I will prepare a diverse menu that includes Russian and Eastern European soups, stews, one-pot meals, and traditional protein/side options and takes advantage of a wide range of seasonal ingredients. All you need to do is defrost and reheat, as well as add a salad and bread if desired.
(Note: a couple of dishes may require very light finishing touches on your end for optimum flavor, such as boiling for 2 minutes or a quick pan-frying for a crispy crust. If you'd prefer not to have such options included in your menu, please just mention it and I will be happy to include only dishes that require nothing other than defrosting and reheating in the oven or microwave.)
All menus are completely customizeable based on your dietary needs and preferences. Are you vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or dairy-free? Do beets or onions make you cringe? Do you prefer to use only grass-fed beef or organic produce? Just let me know, and we can develop a menu that works for you and your family.
Rates do not include ingredients, which will be billed at cost. You are welcome to request organic ingredients. Out of ethical considerations, I only use cage-free eggs, free-range meat, and cheese made with vegetable rennet (when labeled).
Cash and checks are accepted, and gift certificates are available.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your meal preparation service, please contact me at least 48 hours ahead; otherwise you will be billed for any ingredients that I may have purchased by the time you contact me to reschedule or cancel. If rescheduling, you would only be billed for any perishable ingredients purchased.
