Imagine a range of frozen foods from Joburg’s leading and most innovative catering companies. Imagine a range of frozen foods so good that they’ll pass as freshly made, and so varied that you’re not just getting a lasagne or pie.
By Word of Mouth has launched a range of homestyle meals, Frozen for You, some of which we tasted at a launch event last week – I had the roasted tomato soup, vegetable and chickpea curry and lemon tart were just amazing. As one would expect from this perfectionist company (the range has been in the works for two years), the food is excellent and it’s several notches up from so many frozen ranges out there – whether large or small.
All the meals are frozen fresh after preparation, and don’t have added preservatives. Each product can simply be heated from frozen in its tray or container, and all dishes come with instructions, plus serving suggestions.
There’s a good variety too – you’ll find soups (roasted tomato, minted pea and wild mushroom), pasta (mac and cheese four ways), chicken (butter curry, Thai green curry and traditional pie), beef (Banting lasagne, bobotie, lasagne and slow-cooked oxtail), fish (traditional pie), lamb (Durban curry, mint and pumpkin pie and Moroccan tagine), sauces and sides (baked cauliflower gratin, creamy mashed potato, minted peas, creamy mushroom sauce, prego sauce, Dauphinois potatoes and crusty plain loaf) and dessert (chocolate roulade, chocolate yoghurt cake, meringue roulade and tarte au citron).
On the website, you’ll also find nutritional information for each dish.
Frozen for You will be available from Shop 54 Dainfern Square, Fourways, Johannesburg and via delivery (to certain areas in JHB). There are plans to expand the brand to Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban.
