YOUR PERSONAL “MY CHEF” THIS FESTIVE SEASON!
Christmas and New Years is literally around the corner and a lot of us modern Durban women (and and men), shudder at the idea of slaving in the kitchen for hours on end. Especially in this heat and humidity!
Apart from this, who wouldn’t want more time to spend with the family this holiday, put the feet up… sit back and relax with a glass of their favourite.
Me! Me… annnd Me!
Or maybe maybe your culinary skills are not up to Master Chef or the in-laws standard. You don’t want to be the one who ruined Christmas or starved your guests on NYE with an overcooked turkey and raw roast potatoes, now do you? If you are looking for an alternate way to impress… I mean, FEED the family this festive season in the comfort of your home, then My Chef has the solution for you!
What’s on offer?
My Chef have carefully designed and prepared a Christmas menu for your enjoyment – orders close 15 Dec folks! But fear not, My Chef still have DAILY menu’s available to order from as well as an awesome NEW YEARS menu on the go! Ordering off their daily menu will save you so much time! Time spent thinking WHAT’S FOR DINNER!? and time saved by not standing in long lines at the shops. By ordering online you feed the family at the click of a button – in your comfy pants and slippers! Friday’s Grill & Braai Menu has some tasty delights for you: 6 x extra thick beef patties go for R100; 450g bbq marinated pork spare ribs are going for R80 – sounds pretty delish to me! On the Friday Snack Menu you can find meals like 6 x mini lamb and mint pies for R45 – ready to heat and eat! The menu’s are quite extensive from bunnies, to kiddies meals, to nachos and frankfuters! But pop over to their website to see it for yourself!
Effortless Christmas Package
We were treated to the Effortless Christmas Package which (luckily) included heating instructions. You need to take note on each items requirements and if you haven’t had too much wine by this point it should be relatively easy to work out which should go into the oven first and which should go in last. From stuffed turkey to gammon as well as ready chopped potatoes and veg. All I needed to do was pop it all in, hardly breaking a sweat – still looking fab like the PRO I am! Okay, I got some help from my brother-in-law Dom!
The great thing about this menu is that it includes EVERYTHING you need. At first when reading it I thought that I would need to go out and buy the pumpkin seeds and honey – but these items were included in the packaging so that was a saving grace! The portion size is also decent! We added a few family favorites as sides to the meal and fed 6 adults comfotably with leftovers for work the next day!
The prep was effortless and the food was super tasty – my favourite had to be, EVERYTHING (lol). My only suggestion would be to par-cook the roast potatoes if you want them to cook a bit quicker in the oven as we found when cooking as per instruction they weren’t fully cooked and so left them in for a bit longer. Thank you My Chef for the wonderful pre-Christmas dinner, we thoroughly enjoyed and will certainly be recommending you to all our lazy… I mean BUSY friends this festive season!
Place your order with My Chef and the only thing you will be worrying about this festive season is if your glass is half empty… or half full.
