Local Boise Meal Delivery Focused on Sustainability, Local Ingredients, and Healthy Alternatives

Last updated June 23, 2021 by Tessa Bishop

Haute Foods is a thoughtful, chef-prepared meal delivery service that has quickly taken over the home food scene for families across the Treasure Valley—and for good reason. The rotating menu at Haute Foods is designed with a deep understanding that great food experiences are more than just great ingredients. Chef Danielle and her team firmly believe how the food looks is just as important as how it tastes.

“We live for what happens at the table and respect the ability food has to make any experience truly memorable,” says Chef Danielle. “Imagine how much free time you would have if you could take the planning and preparation out of your weekly meals. Whatever it is you have been wanting to do more of, whether that is signing up for weekly yoga sessions, spending quality time with your family, or dedicating more time to self-care. We are here to support you in doing just that.”

The Difference of Eating with Haute Foods

Say goodbye to the tedious tasks that make up your weekly meal planning. No more grocery shopping, hours spent scrolling through Pinterest recipes, and the dreaded kitchen clean-up after a long day. Haute Foods makes any meal easy. Whether it is breakfast, lunch, or dinner, all you have to do is head over to the website and select your meals each week — the Haute Foods team will take care of the rest.

In an effort to establish long-term relationships with local farmers, Haute Foods has created a business model that supports the local economy and community first. This means all ingredients used in the creation of Chef Danielle’s menu items are sourced as close to home as possible, always. This includes everything from fruit and vegetables, eggs, poultry, beef, fish and other specialty items. “We believe the sourcing of a restaurant's ingredients will build the foundation for its future," Danielle says. Her statement is evident by her current percentage of local sourcing and her team's passion for locating and bringing to light family-owned farms throughout the Treasure Valley.

Every meal, regardless of the recipe, is carefully crafted with the wellness of the foodie in mind. Chef Danielle has lived a dairy-free and gluten-free lifestyle for nearly 10 years, and she understands how difficult it can be to order food just about anywhere. When developing the business model, this was an active problem she sought to solve. That is exactly why Haute Foods is proud to offer meal options to the gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian crowds, because that’s their crowd, too.

“There are few places in town where you can order healthy meals that are local and offer food sensitivity modifications that don’t leave you wanting more. I can’t tell you how many times I have requested menu modifications that have left me feeling as if I was missing out and getting a ‘less than’ experience compared to those around me," says Danielle. "I knew if I was feeling this way, I couldn’t be the only one. Our rapid growth has proved that. If I can make someone feel loved, fulfilled, and cared for after eating one of my meals, I know I’m doing something right.”

What’s on the Menu

The Haute Foods menu rotates bi-weekly bringing you flavors from all corners of the world. Chef Danielle has traveled often, and it is her intention to share her favorite recipes from all her travels, with a focus on fresh, local ingredients that can only be found in the Treasure Valley and the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Menu Options:

  • The Gourmet Menu – The Gourmet Menu provides meals that satisfy everyone’s taste and will always include seasonal offerings. Regardless of what Chef Danielle has on the menu on any given week, we can promise you will be left wanting more.
  • The Macro Menu – Macro meals intended for the fitness professional, or the person looking to reach and/or maintain fitness goals. Every macro meal option is free from the eight common allergens without sacrificing flavor or quality. Select your protein, select your vegetable, and select your carb. The Haute Foods team will take care of the rest.

The Inspiration

Food is more than a hobby for Danielle. It’s a lifestyle. No matter the occasion, you are likely to find her dreaming up her next recipe, documenting her most recent food encounter, or actively seeking out the next best dining destination. Chef Danielle has artfully created multiple restaurant concepts she plans to introduce to the Treasure Valley in the coming years, from Italian to Peruvian. Haute Foods has become a playground for her to experiment with new recipes and save all of the best for permanent menus where her clients can be treated to a truly exquisite dining experience.

To better serve the Haute Foods clientele, this insanely talented team of food artists will be joining the Crave Delivery Collective in July of 2021. This means expanded delivery options throughout the week, shortened delivery windows, and elevated meal delivery expectations. We look forward to watching this local Boise company grow and are honored to share their story and future plans.
