If you are like me, there are days that I don’t have time to pick up fresh ingredients after work and still get home in time to make a decent meal. A few weeks ago I discovered Plated – a service where chef-inspired recipes and fresh ingredients are delivered right to your door. So, how does this service work?
Browse & Choose Your Recipe:
Each week a new menu is posted online with a variety of recipes (4 meat & fish and 3 vegetarian options). You start by picking out your meal, selecting how many servings (2, 4, 6) and then add it to you cart! Simple as that.
Select Your Delivery Date:
Plated delivers to roughly 80% of the U.S. Click here to see if they deliver to your neighborhood! Orders are shipped from three major hubs (SF, NY & Chi-Town) and all packages are insulated with Mylar liners year-round to keep food fresh during the delivery process.
Get Ready To Enjoy Your Recipe:
All of the ingredients you need arrive fresh to your door along with step-by-step recipe cards & pre-measured ingredients.
To get started I ordered the Chicken Fricassee with Gnocchi and Artichokes and the Spicy Soy Poached Pollack with Vermicelli Noodles recipe on Thursday and on Friday I received all of my ingredients so I was set for this weekends dinner. As I mentioned earlier, everything came pre-measured – so all I needed were the basics: Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper. Instructions were easy to follow and everything tasted delicious (I noticed that both dishes needed a bit more seasoning so I adjusted according to my taste).
