Being able to cook is one of those skills that is divisive amongst men. Many guys feel as though learning to craft culinary masterpieces is a waste of their time, preferring to subsist only on slabs of meat and whatever sides can be easily poured (slopped) out of a package or can.
While great for saving time, these men miss out on the epicurean experiences that make life worth living, and it’s not hard to imagine that they’re not all that great at food-centric events, either. Other men who cook all the time are on a constant mission to find more… a never-ending journey that leads to exhausting all the artisan butchers, locally sourced organic co-ops and trendy eateries within a 50 mile radius. How can we bring these men together, to create harmony over amazing food, time saved, and the ability to throw the best parties your friends have ever tasted?
FoodyDirect – Sending Food Into Your Mouth From the Far Reaches of the Country

And in most cases, they’ll ship for $9.95. It’s like the heavens just opened up and started raining the most incredible meat and cheese, and you didn’t even need to put on pants to partake.
With Thanksgiving coming up, the idea of ordering the best food from across the country directly to you is a brilliant one. My family is made up of a large contingent of Ukrainians with a lust for all of the best experiences in life, and over time, the insurmountable pile of dishes that needed to be cleaned up came to represent all that stopped us from enjoying an epic meal and dozing to sleep comfortably full of life-giving turkey.
Plates and cutlery were fine, but the roasting pans and serving dishes and various other preparatory detritus were daunting prospects that began sapping the joy out of the actual eating of the food; let me be clear in saying that NOTHING SHOULD EVER TARNISH THE UNADULTERATED JOY OF DELICIOUS MEAT. We’ve since begun eating out, and in the interference of enjoyment regard, it’s perfect. But it misses out on how comfortable and enjoyable it is to eat and celebrate at home, and that’s where foodydirect holds the trump card.
My Thanksgiving analogy is only a jumping off point- there are categories on the site devoted to everything from feeding you and the guys the perfect tailgate meal, to the best ballpark bites without the questionable cleanliness of the vendor who just scratched his junk before tossing you your frank. Romantic meals, holidays, just-because-I’m-awesome-and hungry treats- it’s all there and it’s all glorious.
