As parents, we’re always concerned about the quality of food we’re preparing for our children. When I wake up, the first thing – okay, at least top three – I think about is “What’s for dinner?” I do this every day because family dinner is important to me. It’s a chance to connect as a family and talk about our day. We ditch our phones, turn off the TV, and focus on one another. But what to have, when to make it, and how to find the time to hit the store to prepare it are my least favorite thoughts.
I have often thought: I really need a personal chef. Or, when I pull myself out of the daydream, this has to be easier.
Which is exactly why we’re excited to introduce the Philly Parent Circle Community to Personal Gourmet; a high-quality, locally sourced, personal foodie concierge. Personal Gourmet offers a wide selection of organic, antibiotic-free and grass-fed offerings like beef, chicken, fish, lamb and more. Each selection is individually flash-frozen and packaged so there is no waste.
Personal Gourmet not only provides home delivery, but also offers preparation tips and delicious recipes and a 100% product guarantee; covering all of my ”this has to be easier” pre-requisites; making feeding my family – and yours – that much easier while still maintaining a commitment to quality, locally-sourced foods.
During the summer, I spend weekend in Cape May. I love these visits, but hate the receipt shock of shore prices. Personal Gourmet also offers delivery to the Jersey Shore as well handmade hors d-oeuvres for those endless summer days when your friends and family stop by to celebrate sun and sand too.
With the unofficial start of summer just a few short days away, we’re thrilled to offer a Personal Gourmet giveaway as part of our Here Comes Summer Facebook contest.
