The kit contained all the ingredients needed to cook three meals, each feeding 2 people, complete with recipes with step-by-step photos. Blue Apron also offers plans to feed 4 and 6 people, as well as a choice between the meat and fish or vegetarian meal plans. Delivery times range daily from 8am to 8pm and 6pm to 8pm, which suited my work schedule the best.
Blue Apron posts the following week's menu on the site a week in advance so I had the opportunity to make sure the menu looked appealing before ordering. My week's dishes included ginger beef stir fry, turkey chili, and salmon with fennel and cauliflower steak.
My meals came neatly packaged in a cardboard box lined with ice packs to keep the contents fresh for a few hours. I arrived home at 6pm to find my box had already been delivered, but the ice packs kept everything cool. Also, the steak and chicken in my pack were vacuum sealed, which meant I had an extra week or two to use them, which helped as last minute plans came up and I had to push one of the dishes to the following week.
