Artisan Meats And Other Foods

We are always on the lookout for excellent food to recommend.

Many of our favorite restaurants now ship right to your door, but shipping food cross country has to be done carefully. We are especially fond of the work done by FoodyDirect because they have a clever program that works with the restaurant to make sure that the food is properly sealed, chilled, packaged, insured, and shipped expeditiously at the best rates, often as low as $9.95. Orders ship direct from the vendor, there is no warehousing. Each package has premium package insurance that protects you if the package is lost, stolen, undeliverable, etc.

They also have a unique shipping calendar that allows you to select the exact day of arrival for a package up to three months in advance so you can be sure that your package arrives on schedule making it perfect for any special occasion. And most important, they understand customer service.

Best of all, if you enter AMAZINGRIBS10 in the coupon box when you check out you will get 10% off your first online order!

They offer scores of famous dishes and here are some of our favorites. To see more options, click here.
