You’ve asked and now we’re answering with a new option for meal prep and delivery!
Now you can have our delicious Afro-Caribbean-Soul fare with a sweet and spicy flair delivered directly to your doorstep at home. Our founder and Executive Chef, Niquenya, has joined the Shef program that kicked off today in Chicago.
Meal prep, short for meal preparation, is the concept of preparing whole meals or dishes ahead of schedule. It’s particularly popular amongst busy people because it can save a lot of time. Having pre-prepared meals on hand can also reduce portion size and help you reach your nutrition goals.
Shef is a community-based platform where trained and certified cooks can safely share their homemade meals and traditional recipes with their neighbors. All shefs are vetted and trained to follow strict food safety standards in compliance with local regulations. Shefs are located in neighborhoods across the country. You need only enter your zip code to explore who’s cooking near you!
All of the meals you order are made fresh by your Shef. Hot dishes are prepared fresh and then cooled in time for delivery. All meals will arrive cold in an insulated bag with ice packs. Your food will be delivered to your doorstep between 3pm and 8pm on your scheduled delivery date. Don’t worry if you’re not home; your food will be left at your door in a cold insulated bag! Feel free to heat them up for dinner or put them in the refrigerator to enjoy later—completely up to you! Just heat, eat…and repeat!
As a special offer to all our local patrons in Chicago, please enjoy your first meal on us. Just sign up and use discount code “chifriends” to take up to $25 off your first order.
Corporate partnerships are also available. Now that more teams are working from home, Shef is a wonderful way to show your employees care and support during this difficult time by sharing the gift of homemade food. For larger parties that need prepared food served hot, you can still check out our Catering options.
