Ingredients

How are our meals made

It is one of our passions! Firstly, all our meals are made from scratch (as in, we chop the actual onion in your order, on the day. Almost as if you are preparing the meal yourself!) Our vegetables are sourced daily and fresh from local suppliers. We aim to purchase as many organic products as we can but as you may know, organic (like most things worth it) takes time so every now and then we have to accommodate for the fact that not all organic products are as readily available as we would like them to be. Having said that, we are working closely with our suppliers to ensure that the correct amounts are being catered for.

Heating and defrosting your Dinnerbox meal

Is there a correct way to defrost and heat?

Absolutely. Our food is so fresh that it does allow for being cooked right from frozen (we all have “those” days) however, that does impact on the flavour so we prefer following our own time-tested routine. Remember, we do not use any stabilizers, preservatives or artificial ingredients

For the finest Dinnerbox experience, here is a guideline on how to best prepare your Dinnerbox meal:

Please defrost your chosen meal over-night in the fridge before popping it into the oven or microwave. We use fresh vegetables in all our meals so you may experience meals that may go slightly watery (this is due to us not using any stabilizers in our meals).

If you find that your meal is slightly watery, simply change the container before heating up.

Once defrosted, please enjoy it within 2 days - this is REAL food and therefore, won’t stay fresh forever.

Our frozen meals are happy in the freezer for 4-5 months (We never let them go that long. Just can’t resist our own cooking! This is for worst case scenarios like being away from home for an extended period).

Our plastic containers are microwavable so you can heat them up in the container if needed.

Our preferred method of heating up is to plate the meals on a dinner plate first and then heat up but there is a catch… you have to wash those dishes!
