Review: Soup of the Month Club

I loved this soup!!! Well, not just the soup, but the whole package. The Soup of the Month Club from Gourmet Station includes soup, baguette, and a cookie. It makes the perfect meal, especially on a chilly day.

The first soup we tried was Italian Wedding Soup (pictured above). Just pour the soup in to a sauce pan to heat it and you are ready to go. There were plenty of meatballs and lots of flavor! This is a soup I don’t usually make for myself, so it was a treat to try something different.

The other soup we sampled was a Tomato Basil soup. Yum yum! Just the right combination of spices. Hearty enough to leave me feeling satisfied, but not too full.

In typical Gourmet Station fashion, everything comes packaged concise, convenient, and beautiful. The soup is easy to prepare from canister to stove top (or microwave – but I prefer stove top).

The bread and cookies come ready to pop in the oven.

Pop the baguette and cookie in the oven for a truly fresh-baked taste. The warm baguette is such a nice, home-y accompaniment to the soup and really makes it a meal. The fresh-baked cookie with its gooey caramel and chocolate topped it off perfectly.

This Soup of the Month Club includes 6 individually-sized servings of soup, 6 baguettes and 6 bake your own gourmet cookies every month. Gift recipients can choose from a menu with lots of selections, including other tempting choices like Lobster Bisque, Ginger Butternut, or Rustic Beef Stew. Available in 3, 6, 9 or 12 month memberships.

Dinner of the Month Club Review

The Dinner of the Month Club from Gourmet Station is the ultimate treat. It’s easy, convenient, and delicious!

Gourmet Station sets the expectation from the moment the package arrives. Everything is bundled beautifully and kept cold in a sturdy, insulated box with ice packs included. Your meal can either be eaten within three days of receipt, or you can freeze it and eat it at another time. We enjoyed ours on the day it arrived.

Our dinner was from the Americana Menu and consisted of an appetizer (for two) with Portabella Puffs and Mushroom Tarts, 2 main entrees – salmon and beef tips, and 2 triple chocolate parfaits for dessert. Everything is packaged individually and it is a cinch to prepare. I love that the containers are foil — not plastic. Just remove the lids and pop everything into the oven.

Our appetizers were ready first, so we enjoyed them while the entrees finished cooking.

Both Mushroom appetizers were scrumptious. I love having a small appetizer before my meal, but don’t want to deal with the extra effort (and mess) that come with preparation. So it’s nice to enjoy a sampler without any fuss.

We had two different entrees – salmon with dill sauce on the side (sauce not pictured) and beef tips.

Both meals included a side of potatoes, which were yummy! The salmon was very good, but the beef tips are what really stood out for me. They were so tender and moist and full of flavor. I would definitely order those again.

Time for dessert… I just love these individual-sized parfaits. Light and chocolaty and just the right size to end our gourmet dinner.

The best part about this meal may have been that that there was no mess to clean up afterward!

A Dinner of the Month Club is definitely a treat and makes a perfect gift, especially for busy couples, new parents, or anyone who likes good food but doesn’t always have to the time to cook. Gourmet Station offers a wide menu selection to choose from, so gift recipients can chose the meals that appeal to them.

Give them the gift of good food and convenience this year – it’s sure to be a hit!

Our cuisine of choice was the Parisian Three Course Dinner. It consisted of the following items:

Parisian Three Course Dinner

Sounds scrumptious!!!

Everything was super-easy to prepare. The directions for each item were printed right on the package. Just remove the lid and pop into the oven for the specified time. That’s it – no hassle whatsoever.

The handmade appetizers needed less time than the entrees. So we followed the suggestion on the instructions, and enjoyed our appetizers while the entrees were finishing.

For the main course, we enjoyed 2 different entrees:

Tortellini with Shrimp in Lobster Sauce and Creamy Spinach

Lemon Herb Salmon and Creamy Spinach
Lemon Herb Salmon and Creamy Spinach

Both entrees were fabulous – definitely than I could make myself at home (and without all of the mess). When I initially saw the packages, I wasn’t sure there would be enough food to fill us up. Boy, was I wrong! The servings were more than ample. Had to wait a little while before we started on the tempting dessert…

Dessert was 2 slices of the best raspberry cheesecake I have ever had! It was rich and delicious. A perfect ending to a gourmet meal!
