Preparing purees for the hot-headed high chair set has you teetering dangerously close to Gordon Ramsay territory.
Turn your kitchen nightmare around with the help of Boyan Trgovcevic. After years of cooking in fine-dining restaurants, the Marin County-based chef launched Boyan’s Baby Bistro, dishing out small batches of fresh, locally sourced, and organic baby and toddler food every week.
The additive- and preservative-free menus include macaroni with chicken, penne, and cheese; spinach, fettuccine, and chicken Alfredo topped with Parmesan cheese; and banana, mango, and kiwi blends for gummers.
Best part: The week’s worth of lunches and dinners are delivered right to your door. And for the month of February, Trgovcevic is giving DailyCandy readers 25 percent off every order.
So you can stay the hell out of the kitchen.
Boyan’s Baby Bistro (415-888-2319 or boyansbabybistro.com), $28-$35 a week.
Make mealtime even easier. We’ve got dishes, place mats, and sippy cups to please even picky eaters.
