Just popped into The Organic Dish, nestled amid mostly-Latino stores along Bluff St. just east of 28th St. within a kids-squeal distance from Rallysport’s outdoor swimming pool. There, for going on two years, Beckie and Toby Hemmerling have been preparing “easy-to-cook organic meals” available for the grabbing from a handy cooler at the front of the store.
.
Cute idea, and the choice of complete meals looked enticing. You pick them up frozen, then refrigerate them for use in the next few days or keep them frozen for later. And, yes, they deliver. The whole package – they call it a “meal kit” – is on one convenient container. Warning to the ultra-lazy: there’s a wee bit of cooking involved. Explains Beckie: “We don’t like microwaves.”
.
Local chefs’ recipes are even featured, the August offering being polenta designed by Antonio Laudisio of our favorite Italian restaurant of the same name.
.
Sample their recipes, learn about pricing and delivery, and more, at their utterly darling website, www.theorganicdish.com.

There ya go. For easy identification, their storefront. The address is 2690 28th St. but they’re really around the corner, a few doors east of 28th on Bluff.
