Good To-Go was founded by Jennifer Scism, accomplished chef and long-time co-owner of Annisa, a nationally recognized restaurant in New York’s Greenwich Village. Jen’s career has long been focused on the importance of good food. She has cooked at NY Times 4-star rated restaurants, traveled to over 20 countries studying regional foods, and has beaten the Iron Chef, Mario Batali, on the TV Food Network’s Iron Chef program. It’s safe to say she knows good food. She also loves adventure. With her husband and Good To-Go’s co-founder, David Koorits, the two enjoy exploring the backcountry with pole, pedal, paddle and feet.
Soon after David and Jen met, Jen was introduced to many new outdoor adventures. As day trips turned to overnights and extended backcountry adventures, Jen struggled with the limited opportunity for fresh and delicious foods. Being a professional chef, she was not going to last eating the packaged meals already out there. So she began preparing her favorite meals and dehydrating them in her countertop dehydrator. It was do or die, or at the very least…go hungry. Through trial and error, the two were able to sit down, take in their surroundings and complete their adventures with an amazing meal. Jen’s creations were so delicious that they wanted everyone to be able to enjoy them.
Good To-Go strives to bring outdoor enthusiasts greater enjoyment to their adventures by providing them with amazing meals. We know what it’s like to work hard for that summit view, that day on the water, those turns in the backcountry, or simply a night out in a tent. Each recipe was developed with one goal: to elevate your expectations of what trail food can taste like. We want you to take a break from whatever adventure you’re on, sit down, take a bite, and say, “Wow!”
Made in Maine
Maine also has a long history of wilderness adventures and craftsmanship, especially when it comes to the outdoors. It’s a perfect setting for preparing Good To-Go’s lightweight dehydrated gourmet meals. Maine’s vast forestland with countless lakes and mountains and its thousands of miles of coastline are breathtaking and inspiring. Good To-Go uses that inspiration to carry on the tradition of Maine craftsmanship with focusing on quality and excellence. Every meal is handmade by a chef whose focus is simply preparing the best meal possible to be enjoyed in the outdoors.
