Totally Haute Gourmet Cooking Kits

Really Good Food. Don’t you just love it. We all deserve it. Particularly on a special occasion or memorable vacation. The choices, however, are dine at home, spending hours in the kitchen after shopping all over town for just the right ingredients or make a reservation. Both can have equally high price tags or a ton of work.

But what if someone did all the work for you by providing the fabulous food for you to finish at home?

Enter Totally Haute Cooking Company owned by fabulous Suzi Holte. Totally Haute is a gourmet cooking kits company. Emphasis on gourmet, friends.  For an added bonus the kits are delivered right to your door.

Totally Haute takes care of the planning, shopping, driving, unloading, unpacking prepping and sous chef clean up. Not to mention, uses only the finest and freshest ingredients available.

Last week, it was my lucky day. Totally Haute delivered: a Niman Ranch Peppercorn Filet with Blue Cheese Butter Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Glaze, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Crusty French Bread Kit. Come along to see for yourself. After you drool over this gourmet kit, it’s Giveaway time!!! At the bottom of the post, if you are a local friend, you can win one of these amazing dinners too. How about that!

Here are the filets, asparagus and accoutrements. Plus a fun conversational starting question. How cute is that?

I could not wait to see these filets. A long whistle escaped when I saw these gorgeous cuts. Thank you Niman’s Ranch and Totally Haute.  Well done, but I’ll take mine medium rare.

Dinner is a few hours off. I needed to keep things cold. The box Totally Haute uses fits perfectly in the refrigerator. It is a sturdy box housing the prepared meal until the time is right. Such attention to detail in all the packing.

5pm. Time to pull out those directions and get started.

Oven time and then rest time with that divine garlic butter.

Viola. Dinner time. Everything was absolutely delicious. After serving you feel like a culinary superstar. Oh, one more thing. Can’t forget these.

Dessert time.

The directions will hold your hand every step of the way. From turning on the oven to final garnish. They are very well written. Ensuring all the dishes come out of the oven at the precise time, and served together.

These gourmet boxes are extraordinary. I will be using them as gifts for new baby arrivals, house-warmings or condolences. Or maybe just because. My real estate friend even said she wants to start giving these to new home owners on move-in day. Now that is a terrific idea.

These kits would also be ideal for out-of-town vacationers staying in a rental. Who wouldn’t want to dine at the beach, watching the sunset, eating a Totally Haute creation.

  1. So glad you finally tried Suzi’s food! She is the most fabulous woman and her food is delicious and easy to prepare! I love to get the “Sunday Family Meals” for big weekends when you know you will be busy with other things. I used her for Christmas Day brunch and New Year’s Day breakfast and Dinner!

    Love it!

  2. Oh. My. Hey-Zeus. If I lived in one of these zip codes I would be ALL.OVER.THIS!

  3. Yummalicious!!! Pick me, pick me!! 😉

  4. Oh my gosh. this is the best thing ever. I love to cook, but the shopping and prep work,and all the cleaning take all the time. I cooked a meal myself the night before I used Totally Haute, to see the difference. Omg, what a difference, ten pots and pans, messy counter top, three different stores, and with the Totally Haute 1/10 of the pans, and easier and faster, and yummier all around. The quality is 5 stars! I would recommend it to anyone that wants the best quality food and wants to eat at home.

  5. Deborah T. says

    Looks and tastes yummy! Cannot wait to win my free dinner!!!!! ;p

  6. Michelle says

    Can’t wait to try them!

  7. I need it. So bad. Perfect for a mom like me that mostly eats chicken nuggets and yogurt tubes! I love gourmet that you don’t have to go get!!!!

  8. What does it say about me that I want to climb into my computer screen for those molten chocolate cakes? WAAAAAANT. (Also, it’s nice that my comment is linking to my post about week one of my diet. I’m just going to ignore that for the possibility of those cakes.)
