The Chef

Cooking is a whole lot easier when you have an extra set of hands to help. Even better when those hands are attached to a knowledgeable and helpful guide who knows his way around a kitchen.

A friend who’s there to peel and chop the veggies, source and measure out the ingredients, and find new recipes to keep dinner interesting and fresh. Better still is if that friend is a chef and pitmaster. 

Well, that’s me. I’m Adam Goodfriend. But you can just call me your new best friend. With over twenty years of experience in the food industry, my vision is to simplify and enhance your home cooking experience. Allow yourself to feel empowered in your kitchen. Reclaim your time and your life, and provide nourishing homemade meals for your family. 

Leave the stressful parts of meal planning and prepping to a good friend.

Oh yeah, and one other thing.

The food is really, really good. Chef Adam shares one of the secrets he learned working alongside some of Manhattan’s top chefs at the iconic Fairway Market: Trust the ingredients. Fresh chopped garlic and ginger, fresh ground peppercorns and Himalayan pink salt, authentic Chinese lo mein noodles are just a small sampling of the goodies you will find inside your weekly box. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and we’re here to help you make the most of it with a delicious home cooked meal fresh out of your own oven.

The steak was delicious - my husband said he loved the chimichurri sauce. We are big fans of A Good Friend! Just told my friend about it and she ordered for next week.

A Good Friend enhanced our Pesach in more ways than one! I was a lot calmer because of the prepared meals and our food was beyond delicious!!! Every single dish tasted to perfection!!! Was a total hit.

Life has been absolutely amazing since I've started ordering from you. Each and every meal was heaven . My husband has made comments, like absolutely sick, insanely tasty and flavorful on all the meals. So, thank you.
