Meal Prep Order Process

How It Works

At Desiderata Kitchen, our process is simple! 

Each week, we feature a menu with 3 to 4 freshly prepared meals to choose from. Meal offerings typically rotate and change each week based on seasonality and the availability of ingredients.

We encourage our customers to join our mailing list, follow us on social media, or check the site weekly to see what great meals are being featured. There is a 6-meal minimum required to place an order. This minimum can be any combination of offered meals and baked goods available for that week. Meals will always be prepared fresh and packaged in microwavable containers that are convenient for storage, re-heating, and travel. For Heating Instructions, click here

The current week’s menu will always be posted in the Weekly Meal Prep catalog. You may also click the “Services” tab on the site’s main menu and select “Weekly Meal Prep” to view our menu and place orders. All meal prep orders must be placed by Wednesday evening at 11:59 pm for pickup or delivery the following Tuesday. This gives our staff an adequate amount time to guarantee only the freshest ingredients are procured for your meals. 

After placing your order, you will receive an emailed receipt with details about your order. 

Currently, Desiderata Kitchen only services Baton Rouge, LA and surrounding areas. Delivery is also restricted to those areas until further notice. On Tuesday, Desiderata Kitchen delivers from 9am to 3pm. 

Items will be prepared as listed in the menu description unless you have requested any available variation. Due to the seasonality of some food items, substitutions may be made at the last minute. However, this is a rare occurrence.
