Martha Just Launched a Gourmet Frozen Food Line, Featuring Everything from Appetizers to Desserts
Martha has provided her fans with delicious recipes for decades, but now, some of her favorite gourmet dishes are even easier to make. Our founder is bringing a series of frozen meals to over 10,000 grocery stores across the country via her new line, Martha Stewart Kitchen. "We've had great success with our Martha and Marley meal kits and many people were asking, 'Why don't you do stuff like this that's already prepared?'" she told People. "Especially during COVID, so many people were at home and they had their family to take care of and their jobs to take care of and it was convenient for them just to pop something into the oven."
Martha Stewart Kitchen, made in partnership with Marquee Brands, features everything from frozen appetizers and entrées to side dishes and desserts. This launch has been "a long time coming," says Martha, who personally guided the development process; she visited the food factories and filtered down the menu to 40 different meals.
"I work very closely with Thomas Joseph, who's our culinary director," our founder explained. "We take the recipes that we've developed for the magazine and for our books and many of them are very applicable to creating foodstuffs for supermarket consumption." Some of the signature dishes you will find in this series include Four Cheese Macaroni and Cheese, Pigs in a Blanket, Chicken & Mushroom Pot Pie, Tomato Tartlets, Sicilian-Style Beef Stew, and Peach & Apple Hand Pies. As for one of Martha's personal favorite options in the collection? A mashed potato recipe inspired by one of her mother's, which features cream cheese. "We're very happy with the results and the outcome," she added. "Our business is based in the home—it always has been. And food is just, other than the house itself, the most important thing for sustaining a happy family and a good environment."
It gets better: Not only are Martha Stewart Kitchen meals tasty, but they are made with natural ingredients that will nourish your loved ones. "These are very well made, and very clean food. It's the way that I eat at home and it's what people should be offered in the frozen food department of the grocery stores," she added, also noting that these are "flavors that you don't find a lot in those frozen food offerings in the supermarket." The brand will be fully available by November 2021, and carried by more than 17 major retailers, including Kroger, Publix, Albertstons/Safeway, Hannaford, Jewel Osco, Meijer, Woodman's, King's Balducci's, Winn Dixie, ShopRite, and Walmart.
