The Organic Food Nanny is a subscription, meal- delivery service in which individuals or families purchase monthly membership shares. Similar to the Community Supported Agriculture model these shares then entitle the members to their ‘share’ of the two dinner menus the kitchen prepares each week. Dues occur at the start of each month and meals are delivered on the Tuesday of every week. Members are invoiced for the coming month, via e-mail, at the end of the present month.
The Organic Food Nanny operates as a private eating club. Membership entitles you to as many shares as you secure each month. As a member you are in fact owner of the ingredients purchased with your membership dues, and prepared for your meals each week. The preparation of food for members of a private club is not a retail sale. As a member you accept full risk and responsibility for accepting your share.
It is really quite simple. Every Tuesday we prepare two different dinners and pack the food for each meal in returnable containers or other appropriate packaging. To receive your share of both meals simply leave a medium sized cooler on your porch. I will deliver your meals between 2 and 4 pm on Tuesday. The following week place the cleaned containers in the cooler. I will pick them up and deposit your new meals. Instructions are included with each delivery and also posted on-line at http://piatocafe.com/?q=food_nanny/menu along with additional information and photos of our featured foods that week.
Our cuisine is eclectic but classical and rooted in sound fundamentals acquired through a formal apprenticeship and over 16 years of professional experience. Meals are designed to be family style and are healthy because we start with great local ingredients. We have been working with local food and local food issues in this town since 2003. We get local produce into your dinners in the following ways: 1) We shop/ order weekly from market vendors to ensure that we are featuring the season's brightest stars. 2) We buy in advance for the winter. Working with Blue Moon we purchased for Winter 2008-09: 200# onions, 150# potatoes, 100# cabbage, 40# Japanese turnips, 150# carrots, #20 garlic, and other storage crops. We paid Jon in October and he parceled these items out to us all winter. We also put up 80# roasted red peppers, #30 mixed chiles, 40# roasted eggplant, and a whopping 600# of tomato. Finally, we stock our pantry with organic beans, pasta, oils etc. ordered in bulk through the CGFC. We are serious about what we do, how we do it and where it comes from.
We work with the following local vendors
