About Our Team

Before each entree is delivered, it starts with a spark of culinary inspiration from our Foodie, Ed. This spark is then shared with our award-winning chefs and our Registered Dietitians. Good food isn't just defined by taste. Good food should also be of good quality, which means we constantly work together toward gathering the finest quality traceable and environmentally-responsible ingredients.

Collaboratively, our people work to bring this spark to life. Each entree goes through many tastings and nutritional evaluations to make sure that the principles of our science, developed by The M.D, Caroline Cederquist, and that our standards for taste, developed by our Foodie, are upheld. The final result is healthy and delicious entrees created through our unique cultivation of teamwork, creativity and integrity.
