Home Chef Food Delivery Service Review
If you love to cook but run out of ideas of what to make or if you are just trying to save time and not have to go grocery shopping, then a food home delivery subscription service may be for you.
There are several food services out there but I decided to go for Home Chef. When I went to go visit my Bestie Jaime in Alabama, she had a few meals in her fridge. She made them while we were there and I had to give it a shot when I went back home. She gave me a code to save $30 off my first box.
HOW IT WORKS:
Once you decide you want to give Home Chef a try, you will log in and create an account. Then you’ll create your delivery settings. I have mine set to 3 weekly meals with 2 servings per meal. I have a family of three. Myself and my two little people. The servings are big enough to feed all three of us perfectly. You can choose from 2-8 weekly meals and 2-8 servings per meal.
You’ll continue on with your “Taste Profile” meal preferences. You can let them know if you prefer to eat meat, seafood, and vegetables. You can also set up your profile to let them know you would like to avoid pork, soy, red meat, nuts, gluten, dairy, mushrooms, or shellfish. Another feature is setting it up for low-calorie or low-carbs. You can change this at any time.
You can choose for your Home Chef box to get delivered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays.
You will get charged every Friday. You can choose to skip a week if you don’t want a delivery.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR FIRST BOX:
In your first Home Chef box, you’ll receive the meals that you chose, plus a Home Chef binder. With each meal, you’ll receive a recipe card for each meal that has the prep time, how to prepare, nutrition per serving information, prep/cook times, cook within dates, spice levels, difficulty levels, what’s in your box, and what you need from your kitchen that is not included in your box.
Each week, you will get to choose from 10 different meal selections.
I like to choose meals that I wouldn’t have thought of making if I had to go shopping for the ingredients myself. My kids like to help me out with the cooking too so this service is perfect. Every meal contains every thing that you need already measured out for us, excluding cooking utensils, pots/pans, olive oil, salt/pepper. Those are the things that we normally have already in our kitchens.
You don’t have to be a professional cook to make these meals at home. My kids love to help prep and cook the meals. The recipe cards tells you step by step what to do.
Here are several of the meals that we’ve made, along with a picture of my daughter making a meal.
Chili-Lime Steelhead Trout with roasted chayotes, red onions, and mojo de ajo
Thai Fish Cakes with cilantro-lime slaw and Sriracha
Korean Pork Medallions with Sriracha marinade and crunchy rice vinegar slaw
Crispy Garlic and Lemon Crusted Salmon with creamed kale and charred grape tomatoes
Soho Steak with crispy Parmesan potatoes and mushrooms
Now, I’m not a professional cook, but I do love to cook! This home service helps me out and I’ve learned some new recipes that I can make at a later date with these convenient recipe cards.
So far, I’ve loved every meal that I’ve picked out. They’re easy, delicious, convenient, time-saving, and is a great way to get the family together helping out to cook.
