Q: We are super excited to introduce the #divamoms & dads to Gobble.com. I LOVE Ooshma Gargs story. Can you please share with our readers how Gobble.com came to be what it is today?

A: While at Stanford, Ooshma was busy starting a business when she realized how terrible she was feeling about her health. This was most likely due to the taco bell bags in her car, but it also had a lot to do with her missing home. She had always had the benefit of having her parents create amazing food for the family to enjoy at dinnertime and from that simple nostalgic thought came the idea of Gobble. Ooshma wanted to provide fresh, simple ingredients to users so they could create great meals at home in a very short amount of time, even if they were super busy!

Q: For busy working moms and dads Gobble.com is just what we need! We all need to spend less time in the kitchen while preparing #deLysscious and healthy food for our families. Tell our readers about how convenient it is to use Gobble.com. I love that you shop, chop and deliver right to our door.

A:Gobble allows users to create dinner in 15 minutes by taking the terrible parts of cooking out of the process and introducing dinner hacks. Par-cooked sides (rice, orzo, etc), marinated proteins, and ready-to-go sauces show up in the exact portions they are needed so that our members can create magic in 3 easy steps.

Q: Is it true that we can cook the gourmet meals in 15 minutes or less and that there is NO prep work? Seems like a dream come true.

A: It is a dream come true! While we can’t say that there isn’t ANY prep work, it is very light. Putting together a side dish will sometimes mean our members have to cut the stems off herbs or chop up a few mushrooms, but all of the heavy-lifting has been done which makes the dream a reality. Our members really enjoy the dinner hacks they learn about, such as how to cook chicken breasts or a beef filet in a very short amount of time.

Q: I love that the recipes are so easy to use. I know that you use 3-step recipes that are designed for 1 pan cooking. Who came up with this genius idea? What are the most popular recipes?

A: Our executive chef, Thomas Ricci introduced Ooshma to the practice of ‘mis-en-place’ a French cooking technique that simply means “everything in its place” or, having everything ready to go for the chef to come through and put it together! This technique has been used for centuries and is now being brought to our members by giving them everything “in its place” and ready to be put together. All Gobble meals go through rigorous testing to ensure they are ready for our members to put together in 15-minutes. Some of our more popular dishes include Chinese Chicken Lettuce Cups, Bistro Filet au Poivre, Brown Sugar Crusted Atlantic Salmon, Chicken Tikka Masala, and Porcini Mushroom Ravioli

Q: What if you and your family are picky eaters? What do you suggest?

A: A lot of our members have very picky eaters in their homes! We suggest taking a look at our new menus each and every week, and identify the dishes that have “Gobble Kid Certified” stamped on them. This ensures that things like icky mushrooms aren’t included and that the dish doesn’t have many ‘complicated’ flavors

Q: How do you get your box each week? Will you be delivering all over the East Coast?

A: We always show our members 4 weeks of menus, so they can easily choose what week’s make the most sense for them. Select the meals, choose a day you want the box delivered, and voila. We will be delivering to the east coast starting 9/12/2017 :)

Q: What are the costs associated with the program?

A: When members order 3 meals, the cost per serving is 11.95 (each meal serves 2!). If a member only wants 2 meals, then the cost per meal is $13.95. Other than that, nothing else is needed as our costs per serving include shipping & handling!

Q: What is the best email and or phone number to sign up?

A: Any email and phone work for us, just go to gobble.com and get started today!

Q: Is there anything else you want our readers to know about Gobble.com?

A: We love feedback! We’re working hard to create the best menus and service in the industry and rely on our members to help us get better. Give us a try and let us help you spread love through food with our 15-minute dinners!

My ten year old son helped be prepare the most #DeLysscious dinner, and we cannot wait to keep cooking with gobble.com!
