Food Delivery for new moms?

  • 8

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...

    2. Savoury Chef http://www.savourychef.com/ 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.

      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

        1. For basic organic food delivery try spud.ca. Comes once a week. Generally not prepared meals, just ingredients, but saves the trip to the grocery store that's hard to fit in when you have a baby in the house.

          1. Just saw an article about this service on VancouverMom.ca:

            1. Found this, which appears to operate across the country:
