{Kittery, ME} - After launching last March, Good To-Go dehydrated gourmet meals is about to wrap up a banner first year. It turns out, outdoor adventurers do care about what they’re eating, whether it’s after a long day in the backcountry or lunch in the brown bag room at the local ski hill. Retailers from across the US have been picking up the brand (and selling through) while respected gear editors have been raving about the meals. 

What They’re Saying…

The Thai Curry, for example, is not only a customer favorite, but winner of Backpacker’s coveted Editors’ Choice Snow Award. "The depth of fresh, complex flavor is unprecedented for a dehydrated meal,” said Kristin Hostetter, Gear Editor for Backpacker.

And the overall meal offerings have also been included in GearJunkie’s Top Gear Picks for 2014. “Of the hundreds of products GearJunkie staff and team athletes put through the paces these items stood out as some of the best,” says the GearJunkie website of 2014’s Top Gear Picks. 

Outside-The consistent first response was, ‘Mmm.’ The chili packs a lot of flavor, and it's spicy, but not over-salted like most brands. Perfect texture, too, just like you'd expect at home.…But my first impression was the risotto's texture—I felt like I should be eating this on a plate at a restaurant,” said Nick Davidson. 

Cool Hunting-Gourmet Good To-Go Meals—An accomplished chef and backpacker creates truly tasty gourmet dehydrated food for the trail…The risotto is appealingly earthy and creamy, while the chili is hearty—even without the meat. Caramelized onions and corn give the beans sweetness and texture,” said Adrienne So.

Good To-Go was founded by Jennifer Scism, an award-winning chef and long-time co-owner of Annisa, a nationally recognized restaurant in New York’s Greenwich Village. Scism’s career has long been focused on the importance of good food. She has cooked at NY Times 4-Star rated restaurants, traveled to over 20 countries studying regional foods, and along with her team from Annisa, has beaten the Iron Chef, Mario Batali, on the TV Food Network’s Iron Chef program. It’s safe to say she knows good food. 

Good To-Go currently offers four lightweight, dehydrated gourmet meals made with all natural ingredients, no preservatives or additives. Smoked Three Bean Chili, Herbed Mushroom Risotto, Thai Curry and Classic Marinara are all gluten free and vegetarian, with the exception of the Thai Curry being suitable for pescatarians. Product offerings will continue to expand with more breakfast, dinner and dessert options.
