DING DONG! IT’S DINNER (AND IT’S NOT PIZZA!) Home meal delivery is the ultimate convenience, but it’s hardly a novel idea. For most, a ding-dong-doorbell-dinner can be limited to standard pizza or Chinese options. Larger cities enjoy restaurant pickup and delivery services with limited locations and steep surcharges. But luckily for us in Atlanta, we have some options that take us to the next level in dinner deliveries. Have you tried either of the innovative, subscription-based meal services Garnish & Gather and PeachDish? Both offer full, family-style, unprepared meals shipped to your doorstep, which can be quickly cooked at home in just a few simple steps. Everyone sits down to a delicious, healthy dinner and the chef barely breaks a sweat.
Serving Up Georgia, FRESHNESS - PeachDish adds Georgia flavor to the meal-kit industry: In 2013, Atlanta native Hadi Irvani combined his business background in e-commerce with his love for cooking and sharing a good meal with family and friends to start PeachDish – a meal-kit subscription service. In 2014, Judith Winfrey joined Irvani as a business partner and helped to shape the direction of the product, focusing on delivering food fresh from farms – Georgia- and Southern-grown ingredients – to customers along with recipes for meals they can prepare themselves. Customers receive a different meal kit each week with recipes, cooking instructions and the ingredients to prepare each meal. One of the first people she called to help her steer the business was Chef Seth Freedman.
Dinner by PeachDish: The kind folks at PeachDish recently gave me an opportunity to try out their meal delivery service and-- always up for a culinary adventure-- I happily obliged. One of my favorite parts of this whole program is the element of surprise. I'm a planner and I plan all of my meals out each week before I do my grocery shopping. As you can imagine, the menu planning process can get a little monotonous and sometimes I just run out of creative ideas. It was great to know that PeachDish would take care of it for one night of my week and not knowing what kind of meal was coming my way was a lot of fun!
PeachDish Brings A Box Of Dinner To The Doorstep: Ordering dinner is considered the lazy way to serve meals but how about if it arrived uncooked?

As mail-order food popularity grows, so do the companies that provide the service. PeachDish is an Atlanta based company that provides ready-to-cook meals.

What's hot now? Homemade meals: "Finding time to go to the grocery store is next to impossible when there's a newborn in the house, but ordering takeout five nights a week isn't a great option, either.

PeachDish Review: Being a complete foodie, I am always looking to try new foods, especially new recipes that I can make myself. I love to cook, but with kiddos it is not always easy to find new recipes, shop for ingredients, measure portions and still find time to actually cook. Thankfully, there is a company that knows this struggle, and they take all the planning and (most of) the prep work out of it, leaving only the cooking. Not I can enjoy cooking without all the hassle. Not only that, but I get new, exciting recipes to try(and keep). PeachDish is such a great asset to anyone wanting to cook more, especially those without much time. The way it works it PeachDish sends you 1 box a week. Each box contains recipes and portioned ingredients to create two delicious meals for 2(or 4).

Especially among members of the Millennial generation, the option to have ready-to-make meals delivered to their door is a huge benefit.

Hey Gordon Ramsay, I’m a Master Chef! #PeachDishMeal - OK, I admit I watch way too many cooking shows. Inside my head, I secretly want to be a Food Network star. Not really the kind that dons an outfit to match the kitchen, not the kind with the perfect make-up, and not the kind with every kitchen appliance/gadget from Cook’s Warehouse. I am the kind that has to constantly step around a little dog, use whatever knife/spoon/(insert your own McGyver-esque tool here) is handy, and wash my own pots and pans. I’m also the kind that wants to serve my family something beyond pork chops and macaroni – not that there’s anything wrong with that. But I know there’s more out there. I’ve seen it. On the Food Network.

Make Ormsby's chef's recipe for cacio e pepe using in-season spaghetti squash: Jeff Anthony of The Family Farmer farms on 43 acres with a Stockbridge address but just over the line in Rockdale County.
