In Paris, the women know a lot when it comes to shopping. Today, with the majority of French women working outside the home, they've come to rely on Picard, a grocery chain in Paris selling only frozen food.....everything from luxurious meals like quail stuffed with fois gras to pasta and soups, breads and pastries. Now that same sophistication in frozen foods has made its way to America. Meet dcuisine - a company that's re-invented the frozen dinner, as we know it. dcuisine's "dinner delivered to your doorstep" concept provides its customers nationwide with chef-created, flash-frozen, all-natural restaurant-quality meals any night of the week; all without the hassle of having to shop, prep, cook or cleanup themselves. The best part: these meals are prepared by Ken Arnone, one of only 67 Certified Master Chefs in the country, who is hands on for the small batch production of each menu item. The single-serving dinners are cooked with all-natural ingredients, harvested at their peak using sustainable practices. The sophisticated menu items range from Butternut Squash Soup ($10) to Pacific Seafood Stew ($19). dcuisine meals are all pre-cooked and made to be re-heated sous-vide style in simmering water or some of the new menu items being announced soon will also be made to bake in the oven.
We received two servings of a few of the meals, and Jason and I really enjoyed them both! We feel almost spoiled! Yucatan Stuffed Chicken Breast - This bold dish was influenced from the flavors of the Yucatan Peninsula. A roasted chicken breast stuffed with organic corn, zucchini, and masa harina that is served in a red pepper achiote sauce finished with cilantro and a hint of lime.
Nonna's Meatballs and Marinara Sauce - A delicate blend of all natural beef, veal, and pork blended with pecorino cheese that is hand formed and roasted, then simmered in a rich tomato sauce finished with parsley and basil.
