Let these Atlanta restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day and offering Thanksgiving to-go meals help you feed your family so all that’s left on your to-do list is to be thankful.
I shiver every time I hear an ad for Blue Apron. The New York–based company ships ready-to-cook meals all over the country, with recipes and premeasured ingredients packed in tiny plastic pouches and containers, all tightly surrounded by ice packs. Think of the waste!
Seizing on Americans’ collective desire to elevate home cooking (and collective laziness), entrepreneurs have collaborated with farmers and chefs to package simple, ready-to-cook meals with just enough ingredients—often premeasured and sourced locally—to fix the portions you need for that evening. I tested two Atlanta favorites, Garnish & Gather and PeachDish.
Garnish & Gather, a local company that creates weekly ready-to-cook meals (similar to Blue Apron and Peach Dish), has announced its chef lineup for the rest of 2014. Garnish & Gather packages ingredients for any of five different recipes a week, but once a month, it features a special recipe created by one of Atlanta’s top chefs.
With new locations in Brookhaven and Sandy Springs and a recently rebranded spot in John’s Creek (formerly Christophe’s Kitchen), Le Metayer has a goal of eventually serving healthy and tasty meals to go for 10,000 people.
Maybe you’ve considered signing up for a CSA—a weekly supply of food from a local farm—but are intimidated by the thought of all those vegetables. Or maybe you’ve never learned to cook at all. Or maybe you're just too busy to plan and shop for regular meals at home, especially if they involve trips to farmers markets. If any of those descriptions fit you, the services offered by a new local business might be just the thing to get you cooking.
