When choosing a frozen meal, many people assume that it’s not going to taste as good as a home cooked one. It’s something convenient to throw in the microwave at work when there’s no time for anything else. Certainly, it’s not something that can be enjoyed while sitting around the kitchen table at a family dinner.
That perception is being challenged by food companies that are determined to redefine the frozen foods category. These companies are prioritizing healthier ingredients and better taste over a cheaper price point, and it’s becoming increasingly common for consumers to enjoy a gourmet meal at home with their microwave or ovenas the only cooking device. One of the leaders of this category is Michael Angelo’s Gourmet Foods, which has been providing quality frozen Italian meals for more than 30 years. Many of the cherished recipes came from the kitchen of an Italian grandmother in The Bronx. It doesn’t get much more authentic than that.
