Step away from the fast dial and reach into the fridge for this “just heat and serve” twist on a classic made fresh daily in the Goodfood kitchen.

If you like your fries extra crispy, you’ll love these thunderously crisp Russet Potatoes cooked in avocado oil, whose high smoke point allows for the highest levels of crispiness. Best of all, they’re handcrafted by a New Brunswick family who grow their own potatoes. It’s the same family that knows producing this fine only needs a dusting of pink Himalayan salt to make these redheads shine.

One of the things we really love about Goodfood On Demand is their local offerings, sourced from the best in town. Case in point: restaurant group Buzzy Piano Piano, who have created restaurant-quality frozen versions of their cult favorite pizzas, ready to reheat at home when you can’t get a table at one of their restaurants, or you want to grab a few pies up at the cottage when you’re out of town for the weekend. Our choice ? Sweet Hornet flavor, made with the same natural sourdough they use in restaurants, and topped with hot honey, soppressata and black olives.

Sure, you can use it to season those handmade bagels you boil in honey in the kitchen… or you can use it just about anywhere else, bringing those Montreal vibes to anything you think might enjoy a shot of toasted hazelnut. seeds and spices. Sprinkle it on a salad, add it to a chicken marinade or add it as a finishing touch to hummus.

Goodfood Truffle Mac and Cheese

Another Toronto classic, available without queuing at a deli counter. There’s a reason Pusateri’s has been the city’s ready-meal bar for over 50 years, and it’s dishes like this: a four-cheese cream sauce, perfectly wrapping al dente noodles and kissed with the best white truffle oil. Why would you want to eat anything else or leave the house to do it?

On mornings when you should have been out twenty minutes ago, we love a breakfast that can not only caffeinate you, but also get you good stuff like nut butter and fruit.

Gourmet salad

With no minimum order amount, you should have no qualms about calling Goodfood On Demand for, say, lunch for one on a Thursday. If you’re looking for a real boost between meetings, we love this vegan salad, available Monday through Saturday.

Drizzle with Green Goddess dressing for the most delicious result.
