• New Online Service Josephine Serves Up Home-Cooked Happiness

    August 10, 2016 | David Schwartz
  • When was the last time you had a home-cooked meal? For a lot of us, the answer is probably way too long. What is it about a home-cooked meal that makes it different? Perhaps a unique recipe, a special family trick, better attention to detail? Maybe it’s the authentic cuisine and the healthy portion of love. Whatever it is, everyone knows that nothing beats a delicious home-cooked meal. And now, thanks to Josephine, you don’t even have to turn on the stove, or preheat the oven.

    The first service of it’s kind, Josephine gives you easy access to delicious meals cooked in a home near you. I have to admit, at first I was skeptical. There are so many restaurants near my house and numerous food delivery apps like DoorDash, Postmates, Caviar, Dominos, Jimmy John's, the list goes on. But with our $15 promo code: FREEMEAL I figured I had nothing to lose.

  • Josephine is different. Just go to Josephine.com to see what’s on the menu from verified and credentialed home-chefs in your community, select the meal(s) you want, and pick it up during a designated time frame. You do have to pick up the order yourself, but I think of it more like going out to a drive-in restaurant rather than having a cookie-cutter burrito delivered to your house.

    I was surprised to find a menu so diverse. It was refreshing to see options I wouldn’t think to make myself, and certainly couldn’t order from most food/restaurant apps. Once you select one of the various meal options, a meal is reserved for you, and an email is sent with directions and contact information. Best of all, that home-cooked quality can’t be beat.

  • When I arrived at home-cook Griffin’s place to pick up my Peruvian Steak Stir Fry, I texted the number provided that I was there, and Griffin came out to greet me. He smiled, was very friendly, and handed me a piping hot parcel of food. The overall presentation was impressive, down to the bag I was handed the food in. One of the nice things about having to pick up your food, is that it doesn’t cool to room temperature on the drive over. No, my stir fry was freshly-cooked and tasted amazing. I texted the number again to let Griffin know how much I enjoyed his meal and he responded cheerfully. I liked being able to communicate directly with the person making my food. It created a much more personal dining experience.

    Josephine packaging is compostable and kept my meal piping hot.

  • Next time I order from Josephine, I think I’m going to order for two and have myself a picnic with a fresh home-cooked meal instead of lukewarm leftovers. Overall, the experience was excellent, and I definitely plan to use Josephine again. The price is right, the food is great, and if you don’t live close to home, Josephine can give mom a run for her money.
