Blue Apron – Food Delivery Service with New Recipes Each Week

March 4, 2014

There are a lot of new services out there that deliver food to your house with exactly what you need for a set amount of meals.  I was curious about Blue Apron and was lucky to find out that a college friend of mine is a subscriber.  Since she has been a loyal Blue Apron customer, she was able to send me a few free meals to try.

What’s in a Name

Blue Apron got it’s name because in France the tradition is for new chefs to wear a blue apron while they learn to master cooking.  In America, master chefs think of the blue apron as a symbol of lifelong learning.  Blue Apron wanted to make sure their customers were reminded that both new and experience chefs can learn something new. {Blue Apron}

How it Works

  • Pick the plan and number of people.  You can define any dietary preferences/restrictions.
  • Food is delivered in a refrigerated box so that it stays fresh on it’s way to you or if it gets stuck outside because you aren’t home yet.
  • You can skip weeks if you need to!  I skipped a few weeks already because I may be traveling or will have guests.
  • If you are a loyal customer you get additional goodies in the mail and earn free meals to give to friends!

The Meals

  • You are provided with all the ingredients you need in the proper proportions along with easy to read recipe cards.
  • Blue Apron assumes you have salt, pepper and olive oil at home to use.
  • The meals should take you about 35 minutes on average to prepare.
  • Meals are 500-700 calories per serving.
  • It is suggested to cook fish and seafood first.

Cost

  • Starting at $9.99 per person per meal (FREE shipping)
  • Minimum order must be 3 meals a week for 2 people (ends up being $59.94 for 2 people).
  • You have the option of 2, 4 or 6 people.
  • There is no commitment.  You can cancel anytime before weekly cutoff day.

What Next?

I have my first 3 meals to prepare:  Chicken Potstickers with Baby Tatsoi, Kumquat-Lime Glazed Tilapia and Center-Cut Pork Chops.  I can’t wait to see how my experience is!  I’ll keep you updated and let you know my thoughts.

  1. I chose to skip that week (already had potstickers in the freezer) and I’m so glad I did! On the menu this week: short rib pretzel burgers!!!! I’m so excited. Can’t wait to see how your meals turn out!
