The Dinner Ladies take away the stress of thinking about, shopping for, preparing and cooking dinner by delivering it to your door, so that you can enjoy great, homemade food every day.
Ordering is simple. There are no lock-in contracts. There is a lot of choice. You can order once a week or once a year (obviously we would strongly encourage you to order once a week!). We do recommend that you subscribe to our newsletter so that we can send you our weekly menu.
We cook a changing menu of new seasonal Specials each week to keep things interesting but we also have a big range of permanently available Favourites that you can rely on, week in week out, plus a few Pantry Staples to make daily life a bit sweeter, like great bread, bacon and granola.
Some of our dinners come fully prepared and just need zapping in the microwave. With other dishes, there's an element of finishing off, cooking or assembly to be done, but it's usually simple enough for even the most work-shy of
It should all be clear when you read the menu - the “More” button on each dish will tell you everything you need to know about how to store it, prepare it, what it goes with, sizing, ingredients, allergens and nutritional info. There is also a link on the label of each dish that will take you back to all this useful stuff, even when the dish is no longer on the menu.
Our food is made from scratch and snap-frozen – it’s the oldest form of preservation there is and means we can avoid preservatives or other additives. Most dishes have a shelf-life of 6 months.
We're cooking new dishes all the time. When you order, you can either choose your earliest and/or most convenient delivery date and then select from the dishes that will be in stock and available on that date, or you can decide which dishes you'd most like and then select a delivery day when they will all be available.
We deliver your dinners packed in insulated boxes with a frozen gel ice pack, which can sit happily on your doorstep for a few hours. You don't need to be home when we deliver but you do need to nominate somewhere safe for us to leave the box.
