As someone who loves to eat but isn’t very fond of cooking, I was really excited about the opportunity to work with dish’d – an amazing online provider of high quality frozen meal solutions.
I’m quite happy to spend hours baking, and I’m an excellent food stylist, but the juggle of steaming vegetables, boiling carbs like rice, pasta or spuds, cooking meat and whipping up a sauce, not to mention having it all ready at the same time is beyond me. I’m out of practice after 13 years of marriage to a brilliant cook.
Here’s why dish’d is going to be our family lifesaver:
- Easy ordering – shop the Menu by Components, Complete Dishes, Occasions as well as Best Sellers.
- Chef’s Special – great value meal deals, and sampler packs like 4 pasta packs for $5
- Quality – an emphasis on taste, appearance, the aroma and only the best ingredients from around the world. Snap frozen to retain taste and nutritional benefits.
- Service – order before 10pm, and receive delivery the following day in dry ice packed freezer boxes.
The Welshman travels a fair bit for work, and as a not-so-terrific cook, I’d like to have a few more options at hand to whip up a quick healthy meal for my family. Plus it will give the Welshman a break from the responsibility of cooking meals.
Thanks to dish’d, my freezer is now stocked with heat and eat filled pastas like Basil & Pine Nut Medaglioni or Prawn & Crab Mezzelune; vegetables like baby peas and grilled capsicum; and salads such as Chimichurri Rice and Pearl Couscous Salad.
I can serve these with some grilled meats from dish’d such as lamb backstrap, eye fillet beef steaks or chicken breast fillets. We could finish the meal with a dish’d sweet treat, like Mini Gelato Cups. Or perhaps Chocolate Ganache & Salted Caramel Tart. A free gift with my order. Um, yum!
If the Welshman is working late, I know he won’t need to just have a piece of toast for dinner. Perhaps Prawns en Papillote or maybe Casatella & Mascarpone Ravioli in Tomato & Basil Sauce might take his fancy?
Boyo is slowly expanding his food repertoire. He’s discovered the delights of chilli and curry flavours. Getting him involved in preparing family meals has really helped. Having a range of prepared frozen foods on hand which we can add fresh ingredients to is an easy way for Boyo to “cook” and increase his kitchen confidence.
