Led by Chef Doc, a Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts graduate who started his first catering business at 16, the staff practices the mantra, "If we can't pronounce we, we don't use it." Thus, their dishes?be they for weddings, corporate events, or romantic dinners at home?are created without chemicals, additives, or Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
Marvin's Garden blast-freezes and packages fine meat and poultry to seal in flavor and freshness for up to six months from the date of purchase. Restaurant-quality dishes are delivered straight to each customer’s novelty doormat, enabling them to forge feasts of hearty ham, Angus filets, and sushi-grade seafood. Marvin's chefs also simplify party planning by crafting 50-portion packs of gourmet hors d'oeuvres, such as bacon-wrapped scallops and petite quiches.
Marvin's Garden ensures the freshness of its meat through blast freezing, which uses liquid nitrogen to freeze flesh in seconds and lock in juices. Meats are sealed in Cryovac packaging to protect them from bacterial cultures and pop-culture trivia.
