Food Box Review
We received a box of two meals for two people and it arrived beautifully packaged, with each dinner and ingredients in separate brown paper bags and the fish and chicken arriving in its own silver cooler bag. Both the cooler bag and the frozen packs within it are reusable. The box also contained recipe cards which give you step by step instructions for preparing the meals.
The first meal was Ligurian Chicken Stew. The recipe was easy to follow but unfortunately lacked the ingredients to give it much flavor. A whole tin of diced tomatoes was used (imported from Italy which was disappointing since Marley Spoon really likes to promote the fact they use local products). It really did need a little sugar to balance out the acidity of the tomatoes as well as some extra herbs that weren't provided in the box.
We felt that the portion size was a little small but would be great for a calorie counter but not so great for a hungry teenager. Also no kilogram measurements are provided for the protein portion of the meal.
The second meal was Cajun Fish. The trevally arrived vacuum sealed which kept it really fresh till it was time to cook it. The rub was delicious and the slaw accompaniment was very tasty. Again the recipe card was very easy to follow, making this very suitable for any skill level.
This particular box is $55 which I initially thought was quite expensive but for the quality of ingredients and the absolute convenience of having it home delivered with everything at your fingertips, it might be just worth giving this concept by Marley Spoon a try.
The booklet provides some really useful information about what other essentials are needed in your pantry to make the meals.
