Meal kits might be perfect for you

Reading Time: 2 minutes

[Previously published] Restaurants have shifted their focus in this time of pandemic disruption. Some have successfully instituted meal-kit programs.

Here’s a CBC-KW story I wrote about the kits and the three or four meal-kits I test-tasted. Several more restaurants are offering the kits, with more to likely develop similar programs.

You order and pay online — for pickup or delivery — and assemble and heat up the meal at home with family. There’s no knife work or much prep.

The kits are ideal if you want a different kind of dish and don’t have a lot of time to fuss, or aren’t inclined to cook from scratch. There’s enough to do that kids can help out and learn about the cooking process too.

Best of all, they’re great if you want to support local restaurants when they can’t have you in their dining rooms.

I’ve been impressed and will certainly order more.
