Want to order most of my Christmas meal but I can't find any reviews for Williams-Sonoma or Dean and Deluca....

I am trying to find the best place(s) to order a pre-cooked meal (every course if I can) that I can simply heat up. I usually cook most holiday meals, but this year I just want something super easy and delicious.

All I can find are reviews about places that do regular meal delivery...that's not what I am looking for.

I love Zingerman's for breads, coffeecake, etc.

I've been eyeing Williams-Sonoma's food - the prime rib, macaroni and cheese, sweets, etc.

I've also started to look at Dean & Deluca's site...

I am stuck - I've never done this before and I want to make sure the meal is high-quality and delicious!

Does anyone have a recommendation? I am totally open to other places as well - WS and DD were just the only ones I could think of!

p.s. I live in Brooklyn, but we're celebrating Christmas in Marco Island, FL. so I need a plave that does nationwide (or local to Marco) delivery.

      I am - but I will be in Florida for Christmas (which makes this harder!!)

    2. Williams-Sonoma's prime rib isn't cooked.

        Good to know. That's ok - I can definitely cook the items (as long as they're already prepared).

        Is the prime rib prepared (spices, etc.)?

      2. Why not from one of the local grocery stores there? I know around here you can order a full Turkey or Ham dinner. Then it would be just a heat up and serve for the main part, and pick up whatever else you'd like when down there.

        Of course you won't know the quality of what they have to order unless you're able to get down there and ask around.

        Good Luck, and enjoy the warmer weather depending on where you are traveling from.

        1. Every food item I've ever ordered from WS has been first rate. If you want to make sure that what you're ordering doesn't require cooking, call them. They are very helpful.
