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.

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.
Let me start by saying I hope you are safe and healthy during these uncertain times. I am writing to assure that everyone in the Bushka family is healthy and in good spirits (and using the lessoned traffic to spend more evenings night hiking. Not all social distancing needs to be done at home!)
Due to increased demand, some meals are currently out of stock or we have limited supply on remaining freeze dried meals. At this time, we are waiting for our next shipment of packaging so we can begin making more freeze dried meal pouches. We thank you for your understanding and patience.
If your next adventure is taking you into the backcountry, you’re probably already planning on how to shave some weight off your pack. Chances are, you’re looking at your wallet and wondering what needs to come along and what can stay behind. If the only paperwork you’re bringing is a map, read on!
