I was contacted by Joanne at Batch. Food. a couple weeks ago and jumped at the chance to help review and promote her products. Having a hearty, healthy meal with your family is so important, but sometimes you need a little help in getting food on the table. Enter Batch. Food. As they say on their website, “It’s like eating out – but in.”
I reviewed the entire Batch. Food. process from ordering, to delivery, to eating (the best part).
Step 1: Go to the Batch.Food. website and take a look at the menu, which changes every Monday
Step 2: Enter in the quantities of what you’d like to order (the hard part is deciding!)
Step 3: Review your order on this page, below. As you can see, super clear and easy interface
Step 4: Provide your name, phone/email and specify if you want to pick-up in Richmond or have you order delivered on Monday to your home or office. Batch.Food. delivers your food in a styrofoam cooler, which keeps your frozen food frozen until you get home.
Step 5: Leave a cheque for payment upon delivery, or call Batch.Food. with your credit card info.
I put my order in on Thursday afternoon and called in my credit card # on Friday. The following Monday afternoon, a delivery person came to my door with the goodies, all nicely packaged up.
Here’s what I ordered:
- Breakfast wraps (8 per order) – Whole grain wraps, free range scrambled egg, bacon, hash browns, cheddar cheese, and fresh salsa.
- Butter Chicken
- Veggie Quinoa Burgers (6 per order)
- Spaghetti Sauce – Ground turkey, rich tomato sauce, diced vegetables
- Corn and sweet potato chowder
- Shepherd’s Pie
- Cheeseburger Flatbread (flavour changes weekly)
- Bonus baking included with order: Cranberry Oatmeal Loaf
So far, I have tried the breakfast wraps, shepherd’s pie, and flatbread and the Cranberry Oatmeal Loaf. All the food has been delicious, well-seasoned, and easy to reheat and prepare. I am a pretty dedicated home cook and “foodie,” and I would stand behind all of Batch.Food’s cooking so far. They visit local farms to gather many ingredients, use only hormone-free and ethically raised meat and seafood, and above all, are making balanced, delicious food with no preservatives. This food is not the same as what you get in the frozen aisle of the grocery store. There are no hard to pronounce mystery ingredients in this food. It’s gourmet home cooking done for you and packaged in easy containers so you can get dinner on the table quickly on those nights you don’t have time to cook. And much cheaper than eating out!
I work on Wednesday nights and it’s always a challenge getting something pulled together that my husband can finish off while I’m out. Batch.Food. is the perfect solution for us and the next best thing to homemade.
Gluten and dairy free options are available for many items and each week there’s a great mix of vegetarian and meat dishes – something for everyone.
I hope everyone gives Batch.Food. a try! This is a local business making food with love and it’s the kind of business I love to support.
Tonight, we’re having Batch’s butter chicken for dinner as I didn’t have time to do my big grocery shop yesterday. I’m feeling great that my family can have a home cooked meal together and for once I am not stressed that my fridge is bare!
