dish’d Food Store | review and giveaway

This post is brought to you by Nuffnang and dish’d

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.

    How much are those chocolate ganache and caramel tarts? I’ll take $50 worth of those please.ReplyCancel

    Wow, what a great variety of foods! Hopefully they expand to Brisbane, so we can enjoy them too 🙂ReplyCancel

    I am in WA, we have something similar called Dinner Twist, but they hand over the ingredients & recipes cards for you to make it. Your new meal choice’s look so good.ReplyCancel

    Thinking they should spread their wings to Brisvegas, as I am liking the look of such yumminess! xx NReplyCancel

    I won a Dishd voucher last year which I gifted to friends who live in Sydney because they don’t deliver to Brisbane which is a shame cos the food looks amazing and I really wanted to get some meals in for those nights the kids prevent me getting to the kitchen to cook!ReplyCancel

  • Lisa Mckenzie - 23 January 2015 - 2.49 pm

    I would spend my voucher on anything healthy that I Didn’t have to cook as the person that does the cooking is ME!ReplyCancel

  • Lara Cain Gray - 23 January 2015 - 11.46 am

    I’m in Brisbane, so I won’t enter, but I love the concept! I hope they consider expanding to the north 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Ross S - 18 January 2015 - 6.20 pm

    I’d order anything that looks delicious,
    with hearty ingredients that are nutritious,
    and most importantly requires absolutely NO DISHES.
    These are my dish’d menu wishes!ReplyCancel

  • Lisa Matley - 17 January 2015 - 9.19 pm

    I would love to try to variety of dishes, even though I have already eaten dinner just looking at what is available makes me hungry. Working many different jobs dish’ would allow me to have gorgeous dinners no matter whatReplyCancel

    I’d use my $50 voucher to buy some pizza’s, pasta dishes and gelato’s, and have an Italian themed family night in. I would dress up as an Italian chef (complete with fake moustache and chef’s hat!), and serve the meals to my hubby and our three young kids. After dinner, as we enjoy our gelato’s we could look up some interesting facts about Italy, whilst Dean Martin’s “That’s Amore” plays in the background. The kids would be learning in a fun, relaxed environment, all whilst enjoying some delicious meals that mummy didn’t have to cook! Win win!!ReplyCancel

    I first came across dish’d Food Store at the 2014 Taste of Melbourne and was so impressed with the food that was presented for tasting. I would normally never consider purchasing ready made frozen food, but after trying their products, I was amazed at the fresh tasting quality. I would not hesitate in purchasing any of the dish’d food and the $50 voucher would be used to purchase the convenient single sized meals to have when I can’t be bothered cooking but want a delicious meal. There is such a large range of cooking styles to select from and all very affordable.. Having a choice of visiting the Prahran store or having the food delivered is a plus.ReplyCancel

    Oh hello fabulous food! I would spend $50 on seafood and spicy dishes such as the thai red curry prawns, the sea bass with spinach or the hake en papillote. I do love to cook but I also love a night off (hello curry) and find it hard to time my visits to the fish shop with my subsequent cravings for seafood. The food all looks amazing too – I’m eyeing off those four herb polenta slices too. I’ve never had much luck with polenta! And I would never, ever say no to salted caramel anything.ReplyCancel
