Meet our head chef, Alexander Plotkin
Before Tovala, he worked at multiple Michelin-starred restaurants, learned the secrets of pasta making from Tuscan locals, and even had a brief stint dreaming up food for astronauts. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. He's also a cool, down-to-earth dude who would never turn down a good PB&J. Count on him and his team to make your meals delicious every week.

"Didn't realize how amazing these meals would turn out! I still continue to be surprised at the awesome quality and variety of meals that Tovala turns out. Love this as a healthier option for fast food and eating out. Great portions, consistent quality, and it's a more economic and faster way to bake my own cooking creations."
"I've been on Peach Dish, Purple Carrot, Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, and Plated. These meals are as good of quality without the prep or cleanup. I'm glad we gave it a shot."
"When I first heard of the Tovala, I thought "this sounds like wizardry!" And I wasn't far off. With food that's consistently inventive and delicious, it's dramatically curbed my eating out because eating one of my Tovala meals is both easier and tastier. Cannot recommend this highly enough."

• Do you have meal plans that cater to my specific diet?
Right now, we don’t offer meal plans that cater to specific diets. However, when you order and on our meals’ packaging, we specify nutrition information, allergens, and whether they’re low calorie and/or high protein. Every week, we also offer at least 3 gluten-free meals and at least 2 vegetarian meals (some of which overlap).
You can find the nutrition information for our meals on our Menu Page. Click "Learn More" to see complete nutrition information.
• What kind of ingredients do you use in your meals? Are they organic?
Currently, our menu is not certified organic/non-GMO; however, many of our ingredients are non-GMO and/or organic. We take care to use only real ingredients. No artificial preservatives. No artificial additives. Just fresh, high-quality produce, meats, and pantry staples. We also source locally whenever possible and frequently feature seasonal fruits and veggies.
• How long do your meals usually take to make?
So, all of our meals can be prepped in less than one minute! Which sounds too good to be true, but it’s because our chefs do all the chopping, washing, marinating, etc., a meal needs before it’s delivered to you. You just do one final step, like adding a sauce or stirring in a broth. All meals cook in 20 minutes or less automatically in the Tovala Oven. You just scan a meal’s barcode, and it’ll cook perfectly!
• How long do meals stay fresh in my fridge?
Meals remain fresh and ready to cook in your fridge for 3-7 days. Always follow the “Enjoy Before” date on your meal’s packaging.
• How many meals can I cook in your oven at once?
You can cook 2 to 4 Tovala Meals in the oven at once, as long as they’re the same kind of meal. For example, you can cook 2 Miso-Glazed Salmon meals at the same time, but you can’t cook a Miso-Glazed Salmon meal with a Baked Penne Puttanesca meal.
• Do you deliver to my area?
You’re in luck if you live in the contiguous United States! We deliver to all states except Hawaii and Alaska.
• When do meals get delivered every week?
Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, depending on where you live relative to our Chicago food production facility. If you live close by, chances are you’ll get your meals earlier in the week.
• Is your meal packaging recyclable?
Yes, all the packaging for each meal is 100% recyclable.
• Do you offer family-sized meals?
Right now, we don’t offer family-sized meals, but they’re something we hope to offer in the future. Each meal serves 1 person, and between 2 to 4 meals of the same kind can cook in the oven at once.
• Is it easy to not order meals and cancel my meal plan?
Yes! You can skip receiving a week’s meal delivery anytime. You can also pause your meal plan indefinitely or cancel with no penalty, because it’s alright if our service isn’t right for you.
