Easy Meal Kits for Holidays, Events, & Occasions

Hosting can be stressful, expensive, and time-consuming. You have to plan the menu, shop for ingredients, and prep and cook everything while entertaining your guests. We plan to make your next holiday, event, or special occasion just a little easier. 

Chefdrop meal kits make it simple to serve your guests recipes created by top chefs and restaurants across the East Coast. Without the hassle of planning and with the step-by-step ease of a meal-delivery kit, you can sit back, relax, and have fun with your friends at your next event. Plus, you’ll convince your guests you’re an event-planning pro-chef by the time they head home.

Meal Kits for Sporting Events

Are you a football superfan getting ready for the event of the year? On the big day, you’ll want to spend as little time in the kitchen — unless, of course, you’ve got a TV in there, too. The same goes for any other sporting event: NBA superfans, global sport home-spectators, and those with hockey jerseys framed on their walls, we see you. We hear you. And we know the struggle — feed your guests hot snacks without missing any of the game. 

Sports enthusiasts, rejoice: WVRST might be your saving grace. Your hat trick. Your hail Mary. Your 40-yard field goal in the last 26 seconds (looking at you, Chris Boswell). Whatever you want to call it, we’re here for it. 

WVRST specializes in classic Sunday Game Day snacks. The Toronto meal delivery kit is a city-favourite and guaranteed to satisfy without effort. Start your game day off with their Cheese Fondue and Charcuterie Kit.

The best thing about a charcuterie board is that you can prepare it before your guests arrive and set it on the table in front of your TV. People can watch the game while they snack, never having to leave the couch. Cheese, meat, and bread are the ultimate finger food — especially when they come from WVRST, a place known for their game sausages. 

Next, serve either WVRST’s Chili Cheese Fries or Colibri’s chorizo nachos at halftime — the fries are cooked in duck fat while the nacho chips are hand made, but both are smothered in every topping you could ever want. Grab some plates and napkins, and serve these fries or nachos in your living room. Pro tip: Prep the toppings by chopping and grating before your guests arrive, and store them in the fridge for easy assembly. 

End the day with Union Chicken’s famous O.G Fried Chicken Sandwich. Stack your sando’s with coleslaw, hot honey, ranch, and banana peppers. Oh, and don’t worry — you won’t have to mess around with hot oil after game day. These birds are pre-fried for you, so all you have to do is heat and enjoy. 

Or, you can keep the chili-cheese train going with Chili Cheese Dogs — with all the fixins’. These dogs are easy to prepare at the end of a long day and guaranteed to fill you up. And, if it’s nice out, you can always throw them on your BBQ for an easy grill. 

When it comes to sporting events, you want easy to prepare snack food — and the more you can do in advance, the better. Meal kits in Toronto are a definite win on Game Day

Meal Kits for Holidays

If you’re looking to host your next holiday gathering, you’re in the right place. Cooking for a crowd is tough — and with the added pressure of a special day, you want everything to be just right. With meal kits, you’ll have one less thing on your plate — pun intended. You can spend the time you would have normally spent grocery shopping decorating your place or planning entertainment. And, that extra time saved while cooking translates to quality time spent with friends or family, instead. 

Browse through our restaurants to find meal delivery kits for every occasion. For example, for the Lunar New Year, impress your guests with Momofuku! We recommend their Fan Favourite’s Dinner for 6 — it’s an epic 3-course meal that your guests will be talking about for weeks after. 

Momofuku delivers an ultimate Korean-inspired dining experience in this meal delivery kit. Your first course is their signature Braised Shiitake Steamed Buns with quick cured cucumbers, hoisin sauce, and scallions. Fluffy steamed buns, soy-braised shiitake mushrooms, and tangy cured cucumbers come together in one incredible flavour explosion.

Your guests will enjoy a new twist on an old classic: Red Dragon Rice Cakes for their second course. Like any rice cake worth their salt, these are fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside, and impossible to put down. Smothered in the Red Dragon sauce Momofuku is known for, these little cakes balance the junction of sweet, savoury, and spicy. 

Lastly, you’ll finish the evening off with Momofuku’s iconic Bo Ssäm featuring slow-roasted pork shoulder, Boston Bibb Lettuce, and their signature prepared White Kimchi, Ginger Scallion Sauce, and Korean BBQ Sauce. This is the finishing course to end all finishing courses — the pork shoulder is cured and slow roasted, then finished in your kitchen with a signature brown sugar glaze. 

If your household is a vegetarian one (or not, meat lovers will love these pairings, too) try the fresh salad rolls from Nước Mắm. They’re chef Phil Nguyen’s family favourite and can be customized to your taste. Pair them with the veggie gyoza and Tokyo Salary Man Vegan Ramen from Crafty Ramen. They hand-make their noodles using only the finest of Ontario wheat, and source their ingredients locally

Meal Kits for Special Occasions

Whether it’s a simple date night at home or a special occasion like Valentine’s Day, we’ve got you covered. Simply order a meal delivery kit, pick up some fresh roses, and grab a bottle of bubbly for special occasions made easy. Now, you can make nights in feel like nights out. 

For celebratory occasions, we suggest, Mercatto’s signature Pollo alla Diavola. This spicy chicken is topped with a creamy fregola and rapini, and plated with a fresh beet and ricotta salad with garlic pangrattato. Serve a white chocolate apricot and orange mascarpone-filled cannoli for dessert to finish off your three-course meal.

Treat your significant other to the Chef’s Tasting Menu when you have an intimate holiday coming up, like Valentine’s Day or an anniversary. This 5-course meal comes with seasonal, local ingredients highlighting our Canadian landscape with complex flavours. Your first course is a lovely Pear Mostarda Burrata, paired with a Rosemary Focaccia followed by a Mushroom, Egg and Tarragon Foam Jar. For your loved one’s third course, you’ll be serving a Fogo Island Cod topped with sous vide Bourride sauce on a bed of navy beans and cauliflower and finished with a garnish of pickled chili, fennel, and fresh herbs. 

Your fourth course is a wood-grilled wagyu Picanha on a bed of roasted creamer potatoes and Hen of the Wood mushrooms. Finish your tasting menu with a plum pavlova, which comes with a basil chantilly and plum coulis. 

The Tasting Menu meal kit is intended for folks who are comfortable prepping and cooking — if you’re a beginner chef or looking for a little less time in the kitchen, try the Steak & Caesar Date Night for an elevated and simple to prepare dish.
