New to the Houston area, Gourmet Prep Meals delivers whole-meal cooking kits to the homes and offices of working families and individuals, making healthy and delicious cooking accessible to everyone. Customers begin by choosing a meal from the menu, which changes seasonally based on what ingredients are available. All edible components arrive pre-chopped, pre-measured, with pre-prepped sauces and spices, and prepared for the sacrificial fate that awaits them on your dinner plate. The kit also includes step-by-step cooking instructions that are easy enough for even the most elementary chefs to interpret. Meals are typically delivered to homes or offices between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and have an average shelf life of five days, making it easy to plan ahead for the coming week.
Typical entrees, such as the seared aged rib eye with blue-cheese sweet potatoes and garlic butter, and chicken and sausage etouffee, with antibiotic-free chicken, range from $9–$15. Most meals are about the size of an average restaurant entree and can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. With this deal, the kits can be ordered online, and same-day delivery is available for orders placed before 10 a.m. Additionally, Gourmet Prep Meals donates 100% of its profits to teaching entrepreneurship to youths aging out of foster care, so diners can enjoy the convenience of gourmet cuisine along with a warm fuzzy sensation usually experienced while rescuing bear cubs from a woodland blitzkrieg.
