REVIEW: Chefgood | Gourmet Ready Meals Home Delivered
Are you a fan of eating but not a fan of preparing the meal!!! Or even just time poor and would LOVE to have a chef at home waiting for you to have that meal ready and waiting!! Well this is for you!
If you find yourself regularly time-poor or wanting to eat a well balanced meal without worrying about what ingredients to include, or are just not a keen chef but still wanting to eat as if you are visiting a five star restaurant, then this is a great option.
Chefgood is a meal plan service that utilises the freshest of ingredients, variety of menus, options to increase or decrease your subscription easily, cost efficient and most importantly takes the stress out of worrying about what to eat each day.
With the added convenience of being able to change your choices before cut off day (Wednesday of the week prior to your expected delivery), or even opting out for a week if you are going on holidays, this is a very flexible way to plan you and/or your family’s meals.
Having your meals organised will offer one less thing to worry about in an already stressful world and we could all use some help with a better work/life balance. Knowing that you can come home at the end of the day and a meal is waiting for you, gives you great piece of mind that you can relax as soon as you are home!
Explore Chefgood’s meal plan range and benefits
Chefgood was borne out of the idea of providing nutritious, good quality and healthy fresh meals in a convenient and easy way to lessen the need to hunt in the kitchen for those quick and easy but very unhealthy meals or snacks that we all know too well! Be safe in the knowledge that the team consists of both high quality chefs with many years’ experience in the industry both in Australia and overseas to help provide a wide variety of meals and a vast understanding of quality goods and resources to use, coupled with nutritionists to oversee the balanced nature of the meals provided. Various meal plans are available and there is a HUGE variety on offer.
Meal plans range from vegan, vegetarian, no added gluten, no added dairy and everyday wellness. Cross-contamination in the kitchen is kept to a minimum but as all food is prepared in one kitchen, this cannot be guaranteed. (Please note that whilst a lot of dietary needs are considered and catered for, at this point in time meal plans are not suitable for coeliacs).
If you are keen on healthy eating or wish to lose weight with a calorie controlled diet, the weight loss meal plan option takes all the calorie counting and worry out of it – it’s all done for you with calorie-controlled meals at 350 calories each! Check out the meals available here.
Meal delivery service with a difference
The website will provide much needed guidance and support. Meals are individually priced but there are also handy weekly prices shown based on how many meals are ordered in a week. Changes can be made to the menu as long as these are done before the cut-off date. The subscription is weekly and if you happen to want a week off, no problem – this can easily be arranged.
Meals are freshly made in the kitchen situated in Melbourne and then delivered to a high number of destinations throughout Australia – before setting up your subscription, pop in your postal code to ensure delivery can be made to you. There is NO mass production. Real-life chefs are involved in the process of providing high quality goods with fresh locally sourced produce and the team make every effort to give you the best experience from selection, to food sourcing, preparation and then delivery.
Delivery is to your designated location at a time specified by you (please note some locations may have a particular timeframe to choose from). The meals are kept fresh in chilled boxes which allows the food to be kept safe for a number of hours – so if the delivery has been made and you have had to pop out, then this won’t cause you any issue – how brilliant is that!! You even get a reminder the day before that your box of goodies will be delivered the next day!
Current seasonal menu
As the chefs take time to ensure the ingredients are the best quality, the menu is also well thought out and considered. This, in turn, means ensuring seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables are included in the meals. For instance currently, some of the favourites include Nonna’s Lasagne, Thai Green Vegetable Curry, and guest chef Reynold Poernomo (of Masterchef fame) Chicken & Shiitake Meatballs.
Yep, you read correctly ‘guest chefs’. Chefgood invite guest chefs into their in-house quality team of chefs. Currently Reynold Poernomo, Shannon Martinez (Chef, Author and Owner of Smith & Daughters) and Pierrick Boyer (French Master Pastry Chef) have joined forces and provide a number of meal options to sample.
Not really a big eater during the evening? – no problem!! Other meals are catered for so if you are a fan of just getting up and going, then why not try the breakfast options? OR, if you would prefer not to pack your own lunch, why not order your lunch via Chefgood (and perhaps add a few snacks from the snack options available on the website). The choices are huge and the GREAT thing about eating and planning this way is that the options change weekly, so you will always have something new to choose from. As they say, ‘variety is the spice of life’!!
