Miscellaneous

We pride ourselves on providing you with Saskatchewan ingredients. Saskatchewan is filled with talented farmers and producers. We want to highlight these beautiful products by featuring them in our recipes. We ensure to provide you with fresh, high-quality ingredients. We work with farmers and producers of Saskatchewan to provide farm to fork whenever possible. 

Our ingredients arrive to us incredibly fresh! A best before date is provided to help guide the order in which the kits are prepared. We recommend placing your kits into your fridge as soon as possible after receiving your box.

We develop our recipes inspired by a variety of chefs and our culinary background.  Our meals follow the new guidelines of the Canada Food Guide to ensure you get a balanced meal on the table!

Our meals generally contain between 400 and 600 calories each. The recipes are seasonal and are usually on the higher end amount of calories during the colder months and lower end during the warmer months. You can find specific nutritional facts online on each recipe instruction. 

We source organic products whenever possible; however, because we use products from multiple small farmers and producers, we focus more on their values and process more than on the organic label. The cost to acquire the organic label is high and many famers and producers don’t have the funds to acquire the label eventhough their process is within or above the organic guidelines. We believe it is important to get to know our farmers and producers. We purchase ingredients from producers who’s values align with ours and who have a passion for providing the highest quality possible.  

Ingredients to have at the ready: salt, pepper, flour, egg, sugar, milk, cooking oil, and butter. We’ll give you the rest!

You will receive all the pre-measured ingredients you need to make each meal. Everything from pasta, rice, marinated meat and handmade sauces to a bunch of herbs and handmade spice mix is included.

The only thing you’ll need are a few pantry items such as olive oil, butter, egg, milk, flour, sugar, salt and pepper.

This will depend on the recipe, but we know you’re busy so we try and keep the cook times as short as possible. Most of our recipes take 30 minutes or less! Some of our recipes will take a bit longer and some will be super quick with a start to finish time of about 15 minutes.  

We like to keep things simple, so we will do our best to limit utensils to the basics. We’re pretty sure you’ll have all the things you need in your kitchen. Where possible, we provide an alternative so you can still create our delicious recipes even if you don’t have some of the required equipment
