FAQs

What is Kooshi Gourmet?

Kooshi Gourmet is LA’s premier organic meal delivery service. Simply put, we customize, prepare, and deliver healthy, delicious meals to the Greater Los Angeles area. We love food, and we believe that eating healthy doesn't have to be a hassle.

How is Kooshi different from other meal delivery programs?

Our commitment to quality and freshness sets us apart from the competition. Each dish is lovingly hand-prepared by pedigree chefs and delivered to the front door of your choosing. We source ingredients, prepare, package, and deliver your meals all within 24 hours.

Where does Kooshi deliver? 

We currently deliver within the Greater Los Angeles area. You can specify a home or office location as your shipping address and customize your special delivery instructions on the checkout page when you complete your order. If no special instructions are provided, our drivers will leave your meals outside the front door of the shipping address provided.

If your shipping zip code falls outside of our delivery zones, you will be notified during the checkout process. For any delivery related questions, please feel free to contact us.

How does scheduling work?

We offer meal delivery service Monday through Friday. If you need meals for the weekend, we can deliver them along with your Friday order. All meals are packed in an insulated cooler bag to maintain optimum freshness and delivered between 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM (the night before!). If you have any special delivery instructions (i.e. a door attendant, gate code), you can specify those details in the Notes section at checkout.

What if I need weekend meals?

No problem! We can include your Saturday and Sunday meals in a Friday delivery.

What if I need to pause or change my service?

You can pause or resume your meal deliveries at any time with two business days' notice. If you need to make a change with less notice, you may be charged for any meals that are already in the works. Your purchased days of service will never expire, so you can take a break and use the rest of your days later. 

Can I pick which dishes I receive?

We love the element of surprise! That's why we create fresh, seasonal menus based on the availability of high quality, local ingredients each day. Kooshi clients can specify up to three Dislikes to eliminate any unwelcome ingredients in their meals. We provide sample menus here on our website, and we can provide further sample menus by request.

How do I choose the meal delivery program that's right for me? 

All Kooshi Gourmet meals are all-natural, hormone free, locally sourced, and hand prepared in our 100% gluten-free kitchen. Receive up to three delicious, nutritious meals and two Extras per day. No shopping, cooking, or cleanup required.

Can I specify which meals I receive each day?

Absolutely! We offer five versions of each program so that you can choose the option that best fits your lifestyle. You can also add two delicious Extras to help tide you over between meals.
 

What if my needs are more specific?

We get it. We're pretty particular ourselves. If our standard meal programs don't meet your dietary needs, we can create a Custom meal program just for you. Our menu planning team can even work with your doctor, trainer, or nutritionist to personalize every aspect of your meals. 

Incorporate unique, premium ingredients
Specify a custom caloric intake
Configure unlimited ingredient Dislikes
Alternate meal structures throughout the week
Eliminate dish categories

The Custom program requires a phone consultation prior to ordering. Options are limitless, but pricing will vary depending on your selections. Questions? Contact us, and we're happy to discuss your specific requirements. 

    What are Extras?

    For an additional $10 per day, you can choose two Extras with your delivery to tide you over between meals. Extras include:

    Healthy Snacks (organic fruits, vegetables, etc.)
    Protein Snacks (protein shakes, nuts, etc.)
    Fresh Pressed Juice / Infused Herbal Teas
    Homemade Gluten-Free Dessert

    What is a Dislike?

    Don't do dairy? Not into spicy peppers? Dislikes are Kooshi's way of eliminating certain ingredients from your menus. Let us know, and we're happy to remove up to three ingredients from your program. If three Dislikes is not enough, we're happy to discuss our Custom program, which offers unlimited Dislikes.

    Can Kooshi accommodate my food allergies?

    We take great care to ensure that all of our dishes are prepared safely and separately. However, all of our meals are processed in the same kitchen, where allergens like milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, and soy are present.  For this reason, we do not recommend Kooshi Gourmet for those with very severe allergies.

    Can I give Kooshi meals as a gift?

    Shopping for someone special? What could be more thoughtful than a gift of health and wellness? Give your friend or loved one a taste of the good life with signature organic, hassle-free meals delivered to their doorstep. Contact us to learn more about gifting options or simply provide the recipient's shipping information when you complete your order.

    Does Kooshi cater parties and events?

    We do! Kooshi offers the full service staffing and catering, drop-off delivery service, full bar, signature cocktails, custom menus, and other a la carte options. Contact us for pricing, sample menus, and further information.

    What does "Kooshi" mean?

    Kooshi roughly translates from the Sanskrit word for happiness. We believe that happiness starts with wellness, inside and out. That's why we start with the freshest local, all-natural ingredients. Let us take the stress out of cooking, shopping, and clean-up to help unlock a healthier, happier you.
