The school year is beginning once again (what?! how??), which means the daily schedule will soon get even more hectic for most families. Cooking up delicious, healthful dinners night after night can seem next to impossible, especially when you’re trying to fit it in around homework, chores, packing school lunches for the next day, and everything else.
That’s where Gourmet by Numbers comes in. All about cooking smarter, not harder, they specialize in ready-to-cook meal kits that are already planned, prepped and ready for you to take home and prepare in under 30 minutes. (If you don’t have time to pick yours up, you can also have your meal kits delivered right to your door!) The extensive Gourmet by Numbers menu has options for everyone, whether your family eats meat or fish, is vegetarian or vegan, or needs meals that are gluten- or dairy-free.
Free Fun In Austin continues to highlight Austin area locations and activities that may not be available at this time. We encourage you to take all safety measures to keep yourself and your neighbors safe. It is our hope that the stories and features on this site will help inform your plans in the future.
So many benefits:
Gourmet by Numbers uses fresh, local ingredients sourced from Johnson’s Backyard Garden and other local farms and small businesses, and everything in your kit is already washed, measured, and cut for you. With the company’s By-Numbers system, each ingredient is even labeled with a Step number, so you know exactly when you’ll be using it while you’re cooking.
Cooking at home tends to be healthier, reducing your salt, sugar and fat intake. You can also get your kids involved! Gourmet by Numbers is so easy that even little ones can pitch in, and when children help prepare their meal, they’re far more likely to try new ingredients and be open to new flavors and textures.
Here’s how it works:
First, check out the extensive Gourmet by Numbers menu of chef-inspired meal kits and decide what you’d like to have for dinner that night. Once you’ve placed your order online, you head to the Gourmet by Numbers shop on McNeil Drive to pick up your meal kit — or, even easier, choose to have it delivered right to your work or home. Once you have your meal kit, you’re ready to start cooking! Just follow the recipe using the ingredients in your kit, and you’ll be done in under 30 minutes.
