This is a bit of a different post for Buffalo Dandy, but after the wife’s recent decision to give Home Chef a try, we were so happy with the result that we had to share our experience with everyone.
For those who are unaware, Home Chef is a Chicago-based meal ordering service which sends a weeks worth of meals to your doorstep complete with easy to follow recipe instructions and pre-portioned ingredients. Everything arrives fresh with nothing frozen. You select your menu for the week and for around $10 a meal, you get a choice of 10 unique, healthy and delicious dinners. Perfect for professionals who don’t have time to cook, or parents who struggle with what to make for dinner every night, Home Chef eliminates to various trips to the grocery store as well as buying a bunch of ingredients that (most times) end up only being partially used and eventually thrown away. Hands down one of our favorite parts of the service is how all of the ingredients or pre-portioned. You need just a little bit of a certain spice? It’s included in the your meal. Also included are simple, easy to follow recipe cards which can be kept in a provided binder for future reference.
I was curious to see what my wife thought about the food. She is such an amazing cook and I wanted to see how the recipes compared to hers. To our delight our meal was delicious and many of them were different takes on recipes she said she never would have thought of making. The portions are also perfect for two people which eliminates wasteful leftovers. If you struggle with what to have for dinner each night, we highly recommend giving Home Chef a try.
