Massimo's Organic Gourmet - anyone know about it?
hello chowhounds - has anyone had any experiences with Massimo's Organic Gourmet? i would like to send my friends, who are proud new parents, some delicious organic meals to enjoy while they concentrate on their new son. my internet searches of places in SF that delivery organic meals have resulted in lots of results ... but none of them stand out as being the #1 crowd pleaser. Massimo's seemed to have a really good variety of options, but few reviews! does anyone have any experience with this place, or can recommend another place? i'm looking for a place i can order 4-7 pre-made, organic, dinners to be delivered in Bernal Heights. thank you!
Hi Rebecca. If Massimo's Organic Gourmet's other products are half as delicious as the wild mushroom sauce I just finished eating on fresh porcini pasta, I think your friends will be thrilled & howling for more. I don't often buy pasta sauces, but I was tired and this one caught my eye. Here are the ingredients, all organic, listed in order: tomato, portabello mushrooms, cremeni mushrooms, yellow onions, carrots, Cabernet Sauvignon wine, EV olive oil, garlic, sea salt, thyme, parsley, black pepper. Immediately after eating it, I went online to find out where I can buy the rest of their products (I'm in the East Bay). The sauce was incredibly fresh, garlicky,& had the full-bodied depth of a sauce someone's nonna had simmered all afternoon, and the slices of mushroom in it were large enough that you could really savor their taste. Your friends must love you anyway, but if you go ahead with this generous plan of yours, I wonder if their next kid will be named Rebecca. (Hope he won't mind.)
Have had their pizzas, they are fresh and a number of great varieties, i.e. pepperoni, margherita, rustica. I actually met Massimo several years ago at the Whole Foods in Mountain View and he was very proud of the organic ingredients that they use. Nice guy too.
I would suspect that their other foods are good as well. I still buy their pizzas @ Whole Foods, they are a real treat.
