Nothing can quite compare to a healthy, hearty, home-cooked meal.
The only problem is that finding the time to cook for one or a family is a problem for nearly everyone in this day and age.
We took a look at online food services that deliver home-made meals to your home in and around Durban and below were the findings.
My Chef is an online business that prepares delicious, wholesome home-cooked meals to people with busy demanding lives in and around Durban delivered straight to your door every Tuesday and Friday.
They have a range of family favourites to choose from like curries, pastas, bakes, lunch meals and a new vegan range.
They use fresh ingredients to prepare the meals, with no preservatives, MSG’s and artificial colourants.
The kids meals have no sodium, only natural flavours.

The idea of ‘The Family Chef’ was to create home-cooked family meals for busy families and for those who just really cannot be bothered to go to all the trouble of shopping, preparing and cooking when life gets too busy.
The Family Chef offers soups, sauces, pasta dishes, curries and stews and baked meals.
Deliveries are available between the Umhlanga and Umgeni Park area.
