HEATING YOUR FOOD

Simplify meal time with The Maine Meal. Most of our menu is frozen, boil-in-bag menu item. This is the most food safe heating method and will result in the highest quality (see instructions on each pouch), but we invite you to use the method you are most comfortable with.

Equipment needed: Cooking pot, scissors, tongs, and a timer

Fresh pastas and filled pastas are not boil-in-bag, and are ready in less than 5 minutes!
