The Farm to Door Food Delivery Service
By Gina Ruccione, Cuisine and Restaurant Writer
We all have guilty pleasures. Mine happens to be watching the Food Network for hours on end and then trying to recreate lavish dinners for my friends and neighbors. It’s a process that can take days on end — especially if I’m trying to plan a Game of Thrones-themed dinner with six courses and a wine pairing.
Needless to say, this can put a slight strain on both my stomach and my wallet. Actually, “slight strain” is an understatement. I’d be lying if I told you that I have never spent an entire paycheck at Whole Foods. That being said, there is a way to eat fresh, eat well and eat with ease without throwing down wads of cash.
Enter Terra’s Kitchen, a new farm-to-front door food delivery service, which brings the finest ingredients and chef-designed recipes right to your door.
Essentially, it’s everything you need to cook great-tasting meals at home. Their goal is quite simple: bring back family dinner night with less hassle and at a fraction of the price.
Here’s how it works: Go to their website and choose from their menu of seasonal recipes. Unlike some of their competitors, Terra’s Kitchen allows you to swap out or remove recipes. Next, experiment with different cooking techniques and flavor profiles you wouldn’t typically try at home, like chicken with sugar pea and radish salad, or skirt steak with chimichurri and sweet potato fries. Menus are constantly evolving and they only use the best ingredients.
Then, just wait for your delivery.
Terra’s Kitchen sources their produce and meat from local purveyors and then preps and portions everything for you. Everything is delivered in a refrigerated vessel with step-by-step, foolproof recipe cards. All you have left to do is cook and enjoy.
If that doesn’t make your life easier, I don’t know what will.
