Cook like a Chef in the Comfort of Your Own Home

Blue Apron delivers groceries and recipes weekly

Dinner should be easy, but it’s not. You’ve got to decide what you want, make sure you’ve got a good recipe, and avoid getting lost in the supermarket trying to find the tahini. It’s enough to make you throw up your hands and reach for Seamless for the fifth time this week.

Before you start ticking off your egg roll options, consider Blue Apron, a delectable subscription grocery delivery service that’ll cut your supermarket trips in half.

Here’s how it works: Sign up and you’ll receive a box every week with the fixings for three wholesome meals. Each individual meal is the recipe brainchild of a top chef from somewhere in the world, be it Larry Baldwin of Manhattan’s Cata or Paul Prudhomme, “the father of Cajun cuisine.

On top of all this, the meals are fresh and healthy (generally between 500 and 700 calories). They’re committed to sustainability – all their materials are biodegradable, and they give all surplus food to City Harvest, a service that donates to New York’s hungry.

We think you’ll love it, though we’re not sure your local Chinese restaurant will.
