Last Minute Chef – Sep & Oct 2020

It’s so easy to eat well when you have healthy, convenient meals on hand and ready to enjoy. We can be a total meal solution for anyone looking for assistance in creating delicious, nourishing meals. We even deliver!

We are here to help as September madness looms large on the horizon (back-to-school, back-to-work, sports, dance & music practices, home schooling) it’s great to have dinner on standby in the freezer.

Our Family Size meals are designed to feed your family, each one can serve 4-6, sometimes more. Meals come cooked for you, with only some simple preparation at home.

Our individual size meals are perfect to serve one, whether you’re dining solo, sending a gift, or prefer something different. 

Prepared fresh daily and flash frozen, they all cook beautifully straight from the freezer. Put them straight from the freezer into a waiting oven and dinner is on the table in less than an hour.

If time permits, thaw them the night before in your refrigerator, and they’ll cook through even quicker.

Pick-up from either our Manotick or Colonnade stores, or we can deliver right to your home.

We love cooking for you and we hope that your daily life is made easier knowing that your dinner is done long before you need to eat it.
