The Good Wife Gourmet proudly operates a ‘ from scratch’ kitchen where everything is prepared in-house with the finest and freshest ingredients using a wide variety of local products. We provide customized, creative service for all meal deliveries and events and guarantee the highest possible standards of performance. 



Please be aware that our food may contain or come into contact with common allergens, such as dairy, eggs, soybeans, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, or wheat.

We are a peanut free kitchen, however we ARE NOT a nut-free kitchen.


We can accommodate gluten-free and dairy-free dietary requests, however we are not a gluten-free or dairy-free kitchen. 


We take all the required food safety precautions to avoid cross contamination, including

  • Keep preparation surfaces clean

  • Use clean pans, cutting boards and cooking utensils or use dedicated or colour-coded preparation areas, equipment, utensils etc. when possible

  • Use clean or dedicated fryers, grills and slicers

  • Use clean serving trays and serving utensils

  • Keep non-allergens from touching allergens

  • Avoid allergen spilling or leaking into non-allergen ingredients

  • Schedule prepping and cooking non-allergens first following regular cleaning and sanitizing

Please note that we do not have a separate kitchen to prepare allergen-free items. We therefore cannot offer a 100% guarantee on allergies as risks are still possible from cross-contamination. We strongly recommend a customer with a life-threatening allergy who is severely allergic to any ingredient to assess these risks before dining with us. 



You are responsible for ensuring that your Meal Delivery is safe for consumption once we’ve delivered it to your door. Among other things, this means checking the contents of any delivery to confirm that no items are spoiled or damaged, ensuring that perishable foods and beverages are promptly refrigerated and stored at safe temperatures, cooking foods to appropriate internal temperatures, and following food safety and handling guidelines. Failure to follow appropriate food cooking, safety, and handling practices may increase risk of foodborne illnesses. For more information on safe food handling, check out the Government of Canada’s Safe Food Handling Tips.


We try to make things easy for you, but without limiting anything else in these Terms, you acknowledge that you are responsible for, among other things:

(a)     ensuring that you and your fellow diners are not allergic to any of the ingredients in your Meal Delivery or any other product we provide you;
(b)     ensuring that your Meal Delivery meets your nutritional needs;
(c)     properly storing, disposing, re-heating, and handling your food and any other product we provide you;

(f)     following appropriate kitchen, food handling, and cooking safety protocols.


Transfer of title to any products we provide you, such as your Meal Delivery, occurs when the product arrives at your Delivery Address; provided that we have received full payment for such products. This means that once one of our products arrives at your address, you become the owner of it. However, to the extent we have any intellectual property rights in any of those products, we will remain the owners of those intellectual property rights, as applicable. Risk to products we provide you passes to you upon going out for delivery.
