Bushka's Kitchen Launches Line of Gourmet Freeze Dried Meals
Nov 1 2018 San Francisco, CA: Bushka's Kitchen
believes everyone should have access to healthy, filling meals no matter where, when, or what you are doing. This belief is what inspired Deana Del Vecchio, longtime backpacker and avid outdoorswoman, to launch a line of healthy and delicious ready to eat freeze-dried meals. Bushka meals stand out from other dried food options due to flavor, texture, and wholesome ingredients.
“Consumers have become accustomed to opening a pouch and seeing a lump of unidentifiable ingredients that reconstitute into a meal that has little depth in flavor or texture. We are changing that with our products. When you open one of our pouches, you can immediately identify an apple or a Brussels sprout - which is how food should be!” says Del Vecchio.
Bushka meals feature wholesome ingredients such as quinoa, wild rice, and chia seeds. “All of our meals are made in small batches in our San Francisco kitchen. We chop, cook, and freeze-dry our ingredients and then hand package each pouch,” says Del Vecchio. “This obsession with quality and detail allows us to produce the absolute best possible meal-in-a-bag experience.”
While Del Vecchio says they are currently targeting the outdoor industry, they've seen a growing interest from busy professionals who are on the go and are seeking a convenient, healthier meal to enjoy in the office or on the road. Bushka's Kitchen
currently has four meals on the market with plans to launch additional meals and a snack line.
Citrus Chia Morning: Creamy Citrus Chia Pudding topped with Crunchy Coconut, Pineapple and Kiwi
Zesty Zoodles: Zesty Parsley & Avocado Sauce with Zucchini, Pasta, Lightly Sautéed Tomatoes and Fennel
Unstuffed Pepper: Seasoned Ground Beef in a Savory Tomato Sauce with Quinoa, Red Bell Peppers and Green Onion
Harvest Bowl: Ginger Spiced Wild Rice and Pork with Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Caramelized Onion and Apple
All meals are currently available on their online store. Follow Bushka's Kitchen on Facebook and Instagram for company updates and other product announcements.

A good no-cook trail breakfast is like gold – super precious, yet hard to find. Today, I have a simple tried and tested backpacking recipe to share: Trail Banana Bread. Each serving is approximately 500 to 550 calories, though eat as much as you need to feel fueled since you will cut the slices into small squares!
Each pouch is hand filled which limits how many pouches we can package in a single day. As we've grown, this process has increasingly become a bottleneck in our production. This is why we are asking for your help in launching these new dishes!
A portion of all pre-sales will go towards purchasing equipment to help automate this process!
Hiking, by nature, is an activity that requires planning – sometimes only a little and sometimes months’ worth of research. So, it should come as no surprise to the serious hiker that the key to safe and respectful hiking during the COVID-19 pandemic and the shelter-in-place & social distancing mandate is thorough planning and preparation.
