As busy professionals, after a long day of work, often the last thing we’re thinking about is “what are we cooking tonight?!”. With most commuters frustrated by dealing with heavy traffic from work-to-home, it makes running errands (like grocery shopping) a time-consuming and tedious chore. When you combine these factors, the concept of shopping at a market and cooking meals at home seems more like a daunting experience than a fun project. As a result, we often end up saying to each other, “let’s just heat-up a frozen dinner or getting Chinese take-out instead.” Does this sound familiar? If so, there’s a simple solution for you!
About Blue Apron Food Delivery Subscription
As the food delivery subscription box service industry continues to grow, one of the most popular companies around is called Blue Apron. As one of the leading food delivery subscription box services, Blue Apron provides fresh ingredients and original recipes, delivered to your doorstep.
The company’s mission is to “make incredible home cooking accessible to everyone.” By adhering to sustainable fishing practices (as outlined by The Monterey Bay Aquarium’s SeafoodWatch guidelines), regenerative practices (which relies on farmers protecting natural resources), and reducing food waste (by providing customers with pre-portioned ingredients for each meal), Blue Apron is able to help customers cook tasty, fresh home-cooked meals, while doing its part to help protect and preserve the food industry and environment.
Each week, customers receive a box filled with unique, original recipes (such as Beef Tartine with Zucchini au Pistou, Crispy Catfish & Yuzu-Kosho Udon, and Chicken Steam Buns with French Breakfast Radish & Cucumber Kimchi). The box comes with easy-to-follow recipes and cooking instructions, and pre-portioned ingredients, including fresh vegetables and fruits.
In addition, the recipe cards provide caloric information, which is helpful for customers who are watching their weight. Plus, they also make wine pairing recommendations for each meal, by suggesting a particular brand of wine (like Asilomar Trail Riesling, 2014 or Tathata Pinot Grigio, 2015) that pairs well with the meal that is being cooked.
From Korean-inspired dishes that are bursting with flavor to European-style meals that look gourmet and sophisticated (but are relatively easy to cook), the Blue Apron recipes offer diversity and novelty to home-cooked meals.
