Redmond-area personal chefs or meal prep services

We have friends with a new baby and I'm looking to provide them with some delivered meals. I'm hoping to keep it around $150 for 3 meals for 2 adults and 2 children, delivered.

I've found past recommendations for and (that was an older recommendation and I'm not sure they currently do anything other than catering, but I will send an email).

Any other recommendations?

      Just to follow up on my own post, I went with Kitchen Door, because it was easy for me to just purchase a gift certificate for them, and then let them work with Kitchen Door for specifics on what they wanted and when they wanted it delivered. Kitchen Door offers weekly fresh meal specials as well as frozen meals. They have a really nice variety of options every week. Their per-entree prices seemed very reasonable and provided an attractive level of flexibility.

      My friends really enjoyed this gift. The chicken cordon bleu was called out as being particularly good. They also really enjoyed the cute little treats that were included along with the Easter-week meal they ordered. I hope this helps anyone looking for this info in the future!

    2. If you friends are health conscious, I would recommend The Delicious Planet ( We order from them frequently during busy work weeks. The meals are 100% organic and completely nutritionally balanced. They do some special diet-type stuff (detox, low carb, etc) but we just order the regular entrees to save time and calories when work gets overwhelming. I like their frozen chicken burritos for lunch, too.
