We’ve launched in the Jindabyne region!
I’m Claudia, the founder and CEO of Dinner is served.
You may have read Our Story and how our love of regional travel through Australia was quickly being eroded by the never ending demands of feeding our young family when we go away. If not let me fill you in;
I LOVE exploring Australia’s many beautiful towns and regions
I LOVE food and wine, and unearthing the great local produce and growers
I LOVE self-service accommodation and the convenience of a home away from home
I LOVE our children (well most of the time!) and sharing these travel experiences with them
I DO NOT LOVE spending my weekend away and precious holiday family time planning, shopping and cooking multiple meals each day. Whether you work full time or you care for your children full time, and anything in between, it’s very frustrating.
Despite how much has changed with the roles that men and women play in raising kids, working and providing for families it’s still women that do end up responsible for planning the meals. Not to mention making sure there are enough clothes, that the nappies are packed, have we remembered the baby Panadol?… and so on. Never mind that you’ve looked after them all week, or you just got back from a work trip or have been working late on a project all month.
And it’s not fair.
I wondered how we could do things differently, how can I make a difference in the lives of women? This has developed into launching Dinner Is Served, a delivery service which partners with locals chefs to make our ready-to-heat meals, this makes our meals as fresh as possible, made with local ingredients and it means that we live by our values of supporting local businesses.
Because as far as I’m concerned, no holiday is complete without Australia’s incredible wine and cheese (and I’m not sure I could survive a long weekend with my children without the wine). Dinner is served can bring you some of Australia’s best boutique wines, cheese, olives and more… right to your holiday door!
Dinner Is Served represents my passions: feeding people sumptuous meals and delicious wines, and providing time back to the most time poor – the singles, the coupled up, the mums, the professionals and the professional kid wranglers (I like to call them saints).
Yes, we’re a meal and drinks delivery service, but what I really want to give you is time.
Time to relax, time to enjoy your kids, time to read a book, time for another run down the slopes, time to sit in the sun with a glass of wine and a plate of nibbles and know that instead of driving forty minutes to the supermarket and then stand and cook only to have your four year old announce that they’re only eating yellow food this week…. we’ve got you covered with a dinner that is tasty, nutritious and best of all freshly made by someone else.
Because it’s your holiday too.
P.S. Try the smoked almonds. They’re AMAZING.
