It started with delivery services like Uber Eats, Grub Hub, Door Dash, Skip the Dishes and now a dinner service Hello Fresh!
Have you tried it yet? A meal-kit service delivered right to your front door. Dinner is Solved!
As a subscriber, each week you review the menu options for the upcoming week. Choose the recipes for your week and finalize your order. Menu selections are available for two or four people, three or four days in the week. Delivery is scheduled for the upcoming week; a box of fresh ingredients and recipes is dropped at your front door.
Inside the box are recipe cards for each recipe included. A paper bag filled with all of the ingredients needed to make the recipe, including any meats which are packaged with ice blocks.
My first recipe was Pesto Chicken with Lemony Couscous and Zucchini salad. The paper bag for the recipe contained each item listed on the recipe card, Chicken lemon, red onion, parsley, pesto, couscous, zucchini, garlic, and feta cheese. All the produce items were fresh and without blemish or marks.
The card noted two items from my pantry, olive oil, salt and pepper which I did have on hand. No need to head to the grocery store. The recipe card also noted kitchen tools I would need, baking sheet, measuring cup, whisk, measuring spoons, paper towel, large bowl, zester, garlic press, medium pot, non-stick pan, and a peeler. If you are not much of a cook, you may need to purchase a few of these items. I had to dig deep in my utensil drawer for a zester and garlic press.
The recipe card detailed each step along with a photo. Each step was easy to follow and understand. The recipe card noted 30 minutes for the recipe, but it did take more than 60 minutes. But I must say, it was worth the wait, as my dinner was delicious; and I MADE IT!
