Our most asked questions
How does your service work?
évoilà5 plans 5 dinner meals per week and provides you with the fresh ingredients and detailed recipes for each meal which you then prepare at home. Recipes are full meals, simple to make and take approximately 30 minutes or less to prepare.
In your order, each recipe, with its ingredients, is provided in bags lettered A-E in which recipe A should start off your 5 days of meals ensuring the freshness and quality of the ingredients. Some ingredients can be frozen if you wish to prepare and cook them a different week.
Although the recipe ingredients are provided to you, there are standard pantry essentials that we expect you to have at home that won’t be provided in your meal kits such as olive oil, salt and eggs – these are the same each week and don’t change.
Are the dishes already prepared or do we have to cook them?
Your meal kits will include fresh ingredients and detailed recipes for each meal which you then have to prepare and cook. (ex. cutting vegetables and cooking).
Is it possible to change the protein?
Yes, you can change proteins. You can call your boutique directly or if ordering online write in the Special Requests box that you don’t want a certain protein (ie. Shrimp, red meat) and we will replace the protein without modifying the rest of the recipe. Once your online order is submitted we’ll give you a call to discuss the protein options.
Is it possible to change a meal if I don't like what's on the menu for that day?
Yes, it is possible to modify our menus. You have a few options:
- You can double one meal to replace another. For example: having 2x meal B, but no meal A.
- Also, it is possible to keep the same meals, but to change the protein. For example: we could change the fish for chicken.
- In addition, every week we have an alternative vegetarian meal. You can change a meal of your choice by this one. The alternative meal is indicated in the Customer Area when you order online.
All of these changes can be made through the drop-down menu when ordering online or by entering them in the comments section or by simply calling your local boutique.
Is it possible to order less than 5 meals?
Our meal service offers a 5 or 3 meal package with the option to choose either 2-3 or 4-5 portions for each of the 5 meals.
Many people freeze their meats (since they are fresh) and spread it out over 2 weeks!
