Food Storage Chef Entree Review

Food Storage Chef entree

I received a review sample of Mozzarella Penne Rigate from Food Storage Chef.  (Not a sponsor, just trying it out so I can share how it turned out.)  You can actually request one for yourself, just call the number on the site for a Free Sample.

The sample mylar pack contains one serving, and includes easy instructions. Food storage chef contents

You will need a small pan to boil water.  Once the water is boiling, the instructions say “remove from heat” before you add the contents of the package.  I followed the instructions, although I don’t know why you have to remove it from heat, I could have added the pasta all at once and let it boil.

The directions say continue heating and let it boil on medium heat for 10-12 minutes.  I actually set it to low heat, because the pasta was starting to stick to the bottom of the pan.  You really need to stir it frequently to keep it from sticking.  The sauce includes cheese and it starts to thicken after a little while.

The pasta looked done after 12 minutes.  Now for the taste test.  It cooks “al dente” so if you like your pasta soft, you may have to add a bit more water and cook it longer.  The sauce is quite flavorful and you can taste the onions and tomato in the sauce.  You can tell the sauce contains real cheese.  It is not a huge portion but it is adequate for one person.  The only issue I had was it tends to stick to the pan which needed a long soaking and scrubbing.  This could be an issue in a disaster if you are short on water.  However, if you are looking for storage food that taste good then this will fit the bill.  The Food Storage Chef website does not include pricing so I cannot verify how they compare to other longer term food storage brands.   You definitely should try before you buy and they do give you an opportunity.

  1. I got their sample a few months ago and we (Hubby, Son 10, Daughters 5 and 4 and myself) were NOT impressed. Hubby thought is was too salty and my 5 year old just said “Yuck”. You definitely have to try out your food storage before you invest a lot of money in a 6 months supply. Especially with kids in your family. Think about when you will be actually using your food storage. When there is a lot of stress after some type of disaster, not exactly the best time to introduce strange and unfamiliar food to your little ones. What if you could feed them great tacos? Chili and cornbread and even cookies and brownies for desert? We looked for a long time for food storage that would do all that and more. Now we get everything from http://www.srmarketplace.com. They have some prepackaged meals and they sell delicious freeze dried ingredients so you can cook your own recipes and keep the kids smiling.

    • Calli, Food storage entrees are a hit or miss. That’s why I always recommend trying it out before buying a large volume. Tastes vary too. Thanks for the comment.

    • Calli,

      Thanks for your feedback. I am very surprised that you, your husband, and your children didn’t like our meals. In all my time with Food Storage Chef I have found maybe 1 or 2 people that didn’t like them, and that’s after meeting with well over 100 families. Most families tell me that our freeze dried meals are the best they have sampled. Are you sure it was Food Storage Chef? Do you remember what meal you sampled?

      I recently sent a sample to a blogger who has had the opportunity to sample many different products on the market. Her response to me was, “I love the taste and texture. It really is the best one I have tasted.” We understand that not all taste buds are alike, however we have worked hard to create the best freeze dried recipes on the market today. If you would like to try a different sample we would be happy to get one to you! Thank you again for your feedback.
