Effective time management skills can recover enough hours in the day to fit in a jog and teach the dog to drive. Slash food-related time expenditures with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of gourmet prepared meals from Chakula, delivered within Calgary city limits.
Chakula liberates at-home diners from grocery shopping and lengthy cooking times by delivering a menu of internationally inspired gourmet prepared meals. Appetizers such as Kalbi beef ribs ($10)—short ribs thin-sliced and marinated in a traditional Korean style—and vegetable samosas ($10/six pieces) open for entrees packaged and portioned to serve a family of four or jug-band quartet. Dine on the Italian stalwart chicken fettucine alfredo ($26), or fill clay-oven-baked naan ($8/four pieces) with kuku paka ($26), a chicken-coconut curry fusing Indian and East African traditions. Chakula's online ordering system streamlines sustenance procurement—buyers log on, place their orders, shout their address at the screen, and receive items within 48 hours, conveniently emblazoned with nutritional information.
Entrees store in the freezer for up to four months, though Chakula recommends no more than two (freezer-to-oven items not currently offered; must defrost before cooking). Buyers curious about ingredient substitutions for dietary restrictions or edible solar system arrangements—not all dishes can be modified, but Chakula will do its best to accommodate.
