5. Bin and packaging
Your meals are hand packaged at our city kitchen with care in a reusable bin with freezer packs. We pack the bin to ensure that your product remains fresh for up to 5 hours from packing, while in transition to your home. For best results, please ensure that you unpack your bin immediately and place your food into your fridge or freezer.
Please re-use and leave the bin and freezer packs on your front porch on your next delivery date for re-cycling purposes and to ensure no additional cost for packaging. We also pick up bins on a weekly schedule, and let us know if you'd like your bin picked up.
We recommend that fresh salads, side vegetables, and entrees are eaten within the first 2 days. Please freeze items that you wish to enjoy later, and keep frozen items frozen until you are ready to defrost and eat.
6. Delivery Information
We will leave the product in any location that you request. For example, “on the front porch” or “in the cooler on the back deck”. Please select a cool and shady place.
•When we have no specific instructions we will leave the food in the most protected area, likely your front porch.
• Once the food is left on your property, it is no longer under our care, and is your responsibility, so please be aware of providing properly for your food
• For those in apartments and condos, please ensure that we have the correct buzzer and passcode information.
7. Recommendations for Best Results
We are confident of your food enjoyment! Please follow these instructions to ensure the best results:
• Ensure someone is home or available to accept delivery. Your food is packaged to remain cold for a few hours.
• Place the food in your refrigerator immediately. Food should not be left out or on the countertops once unpacked.
• We deliver fresh and frozen food for optimum taste and value. You may choose to freeze some items, at your discretion. Fresh fruit, vegetable or tofu dishes are not recommended for freezing.
• For best results with frozen entrees, defrost in the fridge for one day prior to cooking.
• We use little or no salt in most of our dishes for health reasons. Add sea salt or other seasonings or sauces at your discretion to customize your dish to your taste!
• Our side dishes are made to compliment your entrees, so try some different combinations for a unique taste treat!
• Reheat your food in the oven at a medium heat of 375, PLEASE REMOVE THE LIDS BEFORE REHEATING.
• Some items can be reheated in a stove top pan. This would include soups, chilis, stews etc.
• For extra moisture, or if reheating from frozen, try placing the containers on a grill in a shallow pan with about half inch of water covering the bottom and covering the pan with foil. The extra moisture helps to cook the food more evenly, keeping and even enhancing the flavour of your meal! Stove top steamers are also a good choice for a single item.
• Please feel free to call us at 403-265-2433 to discuss your best re-heating options!
