Too busy to cook? Local chefs cook and deliver some tasty dishes

No need to turn to a tired take-out menu if you're too busy to cook.  Two local businesses offer easy dinner solutions.

A new business, Nourish Me Now, delivers home cooked meals on ice ready to heat up. Chicken and biscuits, moroccan chickpea and lamb stew, arugula salad, and sesame-vanilla cake are just a few of the offerings.  Delivery is available to Ithaca on Tuesday afternoon-early evening, Aurora on Wednesday afternoon, and Lansing deliveries on Tuesdays. The business was started by Jen Destefano, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and the Cornell University School of Agriculture & Life Sciences, and she is joined by Karen Van-Stewart, formerly of Hope's Way Cafe.

Rose's Home Dish offers dinners like chicken and shrimp satay or tofu risotto delivered to addresses in Ithaca on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Chef Rose Arena trained at the Culinary Institute in Portland, Oregon and worked at several restaurants before coming to Ithaca. For more info, check out the Ithaca Times article about the business.
