Babeth’s Feast began as a store in New York City, a store that only sells frozen food—whole frozen meals, frozen partial meals, frozen ingredients for meals, you name it. All your meals from Babeth’s Feast will be delivered frozen, cost $9.99, and take around 15 minutes to warm up.

  • Anyone looking for vegetarian, gluten-free or lactose-free meal options

What’s Unique About Babeth’s Feast?

Babeth’s Feast uses the method of flash freezing to freeze freshly-cooked food; the super-fast freezing method avoids damaging the structure of the food, so when you heat it, it’s as if you just cooked it.

The Babeth’s Feast subscription service gives you the option of enjoying these nutritious, pre-cooked meals at reasonable prices. Get a week’s worth of dinners and heat them up in about 15 minutes.

How It Works

There are 2 options for ordering food from Babeth’s Feast. Order individual meals through the website, or sign up for a subscription. When you sign up for the subscription, you commit to buying at least 6 main courses (each of which comes with 1 or 2 sides) every week or every other week. Pause or cancel your subscription at any time.

To choose your meals, go to the subscriptions page and check off 6 or more dishes that you want. After you select each main course, you’ll be given 3 choices of sides of which you can pick 1.

After you’ve chosen your entrees and side dishes, you have to decide how often you’d like to receive deliveries—once a week or once every other week. You can then place your order.

New customers get 20% off. Babeth’s Feast offers gift certificates and free shipping for anyone with a subscription. Orders are shipped via FedEx or UPS Ground Shipping and start on the Monday of your choosing. All orders come in an insulated package with dry ice and should be put into your freezer or heated up by the end of the day.

Delivery for residents of Manhattan has its own rules. Orders are delivered 7 days a week and you can select a 2 hour time slot to receive your delivery when you order. In-store pick-up is also available.

Meal Options

Since Babeth’s Feast offers French-inspired meals, you can enjoy 8-ounce main courses like Chicken a la Provencale, Lemon Chicken with Artichokes, Coq au Vin, and Beef Bourguignon. There are plenty of vegetarian main dishes as well like Eggplant and Chickpea Stew, Lentil Chili, and Roasted Lemon Parsley Chickpea Salad.

Sides are mainly 6-7 ounce servings of vegetables and grains and include broccoli, cauliflower, potato puree, asparagus, brussel sprouts, rice, and farro.

You can find the nutritional information through the homepage, as well as detailed info on how to prep and prepare your meals.
