Menu for Today, January 19

  1. Background
  2. Reviews

Born and raised in California, I've been surrounded by good food all of my life. My obsession with food started at the young age of three when I became addicted to watching reruns of Julia Child.

I attended the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in the Napa Valley, where I honed my skills and began to turn my passion into a career.

I got my start at the very popular Tender Greens, where I learned the art of making the perfect salad. I worked in several restaurants in Southern and Northern California, exposing myself to a variety of cuisines. Through traveling and experiencing the rich culinary diversity of San Francisco, I have learned that my passion is cooking in a Mediterranean stye with a California flare. I am also inspired by the complexity that comes with playing with different spices from around the world.

In 2010, I met my mentor, Bridget Batson (also a Munchery chef) while working at Gitane. Under her guidance, she helped me become the chef I am today. She taught me the art of simplicity and the importance of using seasonal and local ingredients. I then moved on to their newly-opened sister restaurant, Claudine, where I eventually worked my way up to becoming the executive chef.

Now, I am excited to be at Munchery where I can showcase my passion for cooking and blending unique flavors to create amazing meals for you.

I have two very picky eaters and this is one of the few meals in the entire world they will both eat. I have to separate the ingredients but that's easy the way Munchery packages it. I don't know what I'd do without this dish, honestly.

I know it's just pasta,but the kids loved it. Mom loved that she didn't have to prep a separate meal for them!

Pasta was okay. Carrot-raisin salad was good by itself but it didn't go well with the pasta.

Wedges were too big and over seasoned. Although there were only 4 pieces, I didn't even finish them. Followed instructions but they were not crispy at all, just came out greasy in the pan. Maybe instruct longer cook time for well done. Very rare.

This was good -- it would have been better for a more typical kid. My son loves flavor and spices, and this Mac & cheese was very bland. The broccoli was perfectly cooked -- yummy and crunchy

Portion size too small. Consider including a ketchup or mustard packet for taste and even a bag of chips to excite youngsters.

Very bland. At first, my kids didn't like it. So after trying it myself, I seasoned it w/garlic powder, black pepper, and a tiny pinch of salt. After I fixed it up, they were shoveling it in their mouths!

I've ordered this in the past a few times and portion was perfect for my 7 and 9 year old but last night, the 2 I ordered were sooo small. Both were still hungry after.

Please make pasta portion larger! My kids love the sauce & pasta but it's small. They didn't touch the carrot slaw -- consider instead baby carrots & broccoli or some other steamed veggie combo

A big improvement from months ago. Liked the veggies. Burger was fine - not salty like previous orders.

My kiddos love these...my reason for 2 stars is that the lettuce is put in the same compartment as the meat. One has to pick out Ll the lettuce before putting it in the oven. Big pain.

Portions are too small - meal only came with 7 tortellinis. Also, the carrots are rubbery and the sauce is weird

Not nearly as good as in the past. Patti was tiny and over cooked (prior to any reheat). Please improve consistency.

My kids favorite! Too much rice filler for me, but good flavor. Consider less rice, and add another tortilla.
