Gourmet Meal Kits For A Delicious Lunch Or Dinner Fix During Singapore's Circuit Breaker Period
The story was updated on May 13, 2020
With the circuit breaker extended until June 1, many of us are looking for ways to mealtime a fun and delicious affair. If that includes preparing your next home feast, with help from your favourite chefs of course, then these clever meal kits that come with simple recipes and ingredients, are just what you're looking for.
1/8 Tim’s Fine Catering
Be Your Own Chef
Chef Tim Meijers may not be able to prepare us a lavish on-site feast while the circuit breaker measures are still in place, but he has crafted a fun-filled Be Your Own Chef takeaway menu to help you create on your own.
The point is that you won't need to start from scratch, as his team has already packed the necessary ingredients for a three-course menu (which also has a vegetarian version). All you have to do is assemble it according to easy-to-follow instructions to enjoy a fine meal at home. Click here to order.
2/8 Déliciae Catering Co
Chef at Home Gourmet Meals
We’re all in need of some good ‘ol comfort food, be it pastas or meat dishes, to help us ride out this trying time. If you can't decide where to start, a good place would be with Deliciae’s pre-prepared gourmet meals. Because one of the the best things about the menu is that there’s so much to choose from, whether you're craving hearty mains, a variety of savoury sides, oven-baked pastas, or want to complete the meal with soups and desserts.
Under pastas, you have the always-welcome lasagna, with beef or vegetables. Other popular mains include the French staple beef bourguignon, as well as moussaka and sous-vide pork knuckle. Of course, each set comes with simple instructions on how to prep it. Click here to order.
The idea of sharing a popiah platter with the family always sounds good, but home cooks understand how tedious the preparation process is. We say, leave it to the professionals to prep this local favourite using time-honoured techniques. Then all you have to do is roll one (or more) just the way you like it.
The classic prawn popiah platter comes with the usual toppings of eggs, crushed peanuts, shallots and beansprouts, as well as six handmade wheat skins, fresh tiger prawns and vegetable filling. For something different, there's the option of fresh flower crab meat instead of the tiger prawns. Click here to order.

The Preludio Box
Chef Fernando Arévalo knows exactly how you can have a good meal at home, and he's assembled the Preludio box to help you do just that. It is filled with special ingredients to create a restaurant-quality meal, which he affirms starts with rye bread rolls dressed in a mushroom glaze and served with especially savoury onion butter.
Arevalo has also included ingredients to make pasta, together with cooking instructions, as well as a beautiful slab of Wagyu beef that has already been rubbed and roasted.
