Founder Hadi Irvani’s home, otherwise known as The Peach-Dish “test kitchen,” is where this spunky meal kit delivery start-up perfects recipes, photographs the dishes and plans more out-of-the-box surprises for their customers.

Established in 2013, the PeachDish team delivers not only the South’s best curated ingredients, made by passionate artisans and grown by hardworking local farmers, directly to your door — fresh, refrigerated and pre-portioned for a gourmet meal at home — but also an educational experience.

Never made filet mignon or cooked with curry? Don’t sweat it. The internationally inspired recipes include easy-to-follow instructions and photos as a map to your culinary adventure.

Boxes can come with enough ingredients to serve two, four, six or eight people. Choose from two vegetarian menus and two animal protein based menus online before midnight Sunday, and expect an arrival by mid-week. PeachDish also makes it easy to skip weeks if you’re out of town – or have your box delivered wherever you go in the continental U.S. I’m eagerly awaiting my surprise treat of the week. peachdish.com
