For a few years now, there’s been a growing category of food delivery that’s like the cousin of regular restaurant delivery. Some services offer to drop off the ingredients to make your favorite meals while other others deliver full meals that you merely need to reheat. Munchery falls in the latter category.

IMG_7162

Let’s face it: hotel executive chefs don’t get the same attention that chefs of individual restaurants receive and, yet, they have so much more responsibility. Instead of just one menu at one kitchen, they’re in charge of multiple dining outlets, buffets, on-site catering, room service, and everything else that relates to a hotel’s F&B program.…
