Food Delivery for new moms?

Hi all - have a friend who just had a baby in Van yesterday. The BEST gift she gave me as a new mama was an upscale food delivery service...think marinated flank steak and organic mac and cheese as opposed to frozen lasagna. I would like to reciprocate, but web searches turn up....frozen lasagna! Any suggestions as to companies who provide higher end, great tasting food with fresh ingredients? Many thanks for the assistance!

  1. Don't know Vancouver but Googling 'personal chef' produced a similar gift for my husband when I was away for 4 months.

      Not home delivery but might be worth a look, depending where your pal lives...

        1. Savoury Chef delivers with a minimum order. A couple of other services that I know about seem to have gone out of business.

          Frozen or pre-prepped meals can be bought at Rangoli, Les Amis, Stock Market on Granville Island, Gourmet Warehouse. I don't know how you would arrange delivery...maybe you can ask the store to set it up for you.

          There is always TakeOut Taxi as well.

          Vij's Restaurant
          1480 11th Ave W, Vancouver, BC V6H1L1, CA

          Les Amis Du Fromage
          1752 W 2nd Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J, CA

          Gourmet Warehouse
          1340 E Hastings St, Vancouver, BC V5L, CA

          Stock Market
          1689 Johnston St, Vancouver, BC V6H3R9, CA

          1. Chef Claire and Hot Cuisine also do pre prepped meals but don't deliver as far as I'm aware.

            OK tried the location thing and it didn't work
            Hot Cuisine - 2083 Alma St. @4th in Kits
            Chef Claire's - 3610 Main St @ 20th Ave
