Do you cater for vegetarians?

Absolutely We do!!! We love cooking vegetarian meals. Just simply choose the "Vegetarian" option under menu preferences. The Vegetarian menu is right next to our Standard menu.

Where are the meals made?

All meals, without exception, are prepared and cooked at our Commercial Kitchen in East Bendigo.

Our meals are not mass produced, they are cooked by Chef's and plated by hand, then delivered by our Friendly Drivers.

Are the meals frozen?

All of our meals are made to order. Because we don't use any added preservatives in any of our cooking, the meals destined for the end of the week come snap frozen to ensure they are as fresh as possible when you eat them.

We do recommend you pop your frozen meals in the fridge the night before to defrost, that way it will lessen the amount of microwave time needed to heat.

Where do you source the products to make the food?

All of our meals are cooked using locally sourced ingredients, utilising local businesses and suppliers.

Do you have a gluten-free menu?

Unfortunately, we don't have a gluten-free menu option.

We are not a Gluten-Free kitchen so cannot guarantee that contamination may occur.

But if you are just avoiding Gluten then you are more than welcome to order Freezer meals all of these have their ingredients listed.

Do you cater to dietary requirements?

Although we can't cater to any specific dietary requirements, we do offer you the freezer packs as an option, all of the ingredients are listed on each meal, so you can pick and choose as you please.
