For businesses like ours, word of mouth marketing is key to letting people know about our service. We've had several positive reviews posted, and we wanted to round them all up for you - these are also great blogs to check out:
Chris Brogan tried the family menu, and said:
I’m munching the dinner roll, which came out crispy on the outside and doughy inside, with just a taste of brown sugar maybe? (Don’t know, but it’s delicious.) The pasta dish was delightful. It’s clearly family-friendly as the spices aren’t over-stated, and the chicken is just perfect. The broccoli was fresh. NOTHING about this meal felt like eating a frozen dinner. It’s delicious, fresh, and wonderful.
Julie Roads also tried the family menu and had this to say:
The food ships with ice packs and insulation to your door - and you can freeze it or stick in the microwave (something I detest and don’t own) or oven. And it’s really good - the chefs are real, live Professional Chefs - the kind that have cheffed for the Emmy’s and the Tony’s.
Chef Gene Castelluccio and Chef Blair Grossman use all natural ingredients, make everything from scratch and add no preservatives. Personal Chef To Go also provides automatic delivery - so you don’t even have to think about this - your food just shows up. And, if I can come home to a good, already made meal, then I can spend more time with my family - and that is invaluable.
Christine @But You Don't Look Sick tried food from the Busy Singles menu, and here are her thoughts:
They offer new entrees each week, and provide meal plans and packages designed for families, busy singles, and couples on the go. Each meal is well balanced, and includes key nutritional information (calories, protein, fat, carbohydrates, sodium, etc) as well as a Weight Watchers Points equivalent – all right on the package. Cooking instructions are also included for both microwave and conventional ovens, so there is no guesswork involved.
In my experience with Personal Chef To Go, the company and the meals themselves were wonderful. My order was delivered on time, and arrived fresh as promised. I was impressed with how carefully it was packed for delivery. Meals were individually packaged and clearly labeled, and portion sizes were very reasonable I immediately noticed that each meal was nutritionally balanced, high in dietary fiber, and low in fat. Each entree was also unique, creative, and flavorful, without being overbearing or over-seasoned - which is often the case with lesser quality prepared meals.
Dani Gurrie @ Tots2Tweens tried food from the Busy Singles menu, and here are her thoughts:
Recently, I discovered Personal Chef To Go. They can actually help with a few meals or the entire week. And with family friendly menus that include things like: Texas BBQ Pork Chops, Grilled Veggie Pasta Bake and Southwest Chicken Chili their menus offer the diversity, flavor and nutrients that I just don't have time for!
...Chefs Blair and Gene have taken their love for food and skills in preparing it and are able to share it with everyone...thanks in part to their ingenious shipping containers which are delivered each week. (I received mine on a Friday.) The food is absolutely fresh when it arrives...(I ate my green salad first!) But the other items can be frozen for later use (which is much healthier than the store bought frozen foods).
Tara @Well Spiced Life took some time to write about our food and her visit to our kitchen here in Richmond:
In Richmond, Va., visiting friends, I had the opportunity to meet the folks who are behind the scenes of this operation. Personal Chef To Go is made up of a team of restaurant and culinary professionals who have passion about placing their food in anyone’s home in the country. To make this vision happen, they have created a proprietary method of preparing and packaging and shipping their food directly to you.
The facility for the Personal Chef To Go outfit was immaculate and the chefs/staff were extremely dedicated. That matters to me. I believe people have very high expectations of what they bring into their home, already prepared, to eat. When you go out to eat, people often give themselves license to experiment. When you eat at home, you want what you want. If you have high expectations, you should feel just fine about trying this out. Yes, I also tasted the food, which is why I can say all of this with such confidence.
Last but not least, fellow foodieJustin Levy @ PrimeCuts took some time to write about our service:
Personal Chef to Go is a gourmet food service which ships freshly made meals directly to your home. The concept was created by two award winning chefs, Chef Gene Castelluccio and Chef Blair Grossman. Now I’m sure you’re thinking that this is probably just a glorified microwave dinner. Wrong. Every meal is delivered fresh, yes fresh not frozen, directly from their kitchen to your home or office. There is a weekly menu which is made by the chefs from scratch.
Thanks for all the great feedback and support, we really appreciate it!
