Feel-Better Food is where you’ll find a great range of comfort classics from around the world like Sicilian-Style Chicken Parm and Herbed Chicken Romesco. These are the sorts of family-friendly meals everyone can enjoy, featuring a nice mixture of meats, veggies, and sauces.
Home Bistro features home-style cooking classics like Gumbo and Peppercorn Steak; this category will remind you of big meals with all the family gathered around the table together.
Market Day Meals goes in a slightly different direction, comprised of meals made from the sorts of ingredients you’d expect to pick up at your local farmer’s market. Featuring a range of seasonal ingredients, every meal is prepared by the Freshly chefs to the highest of standards.
The One Bowl Nourishers are the sorts of meals you’d expect to find served all together in one big bowl like a Spicy Harissa Pork & Veggie Bowl or Hot Chicken Bowl, ideal for those who enjoy rich flavors and tasty sauces.
Takeout Twists, meanwhile, focus on a range of typically Asian dishes that you might usually expect to order from a take-out service like Chicken Tikka Masala or Sesame Citrus Chicken, cooked and prepared to the same high standard as a real restaurant.
Finally, Whole Comfort takes you back to your past with some true American classics like Homestyle Chicken and Creamy Casserole.
