Recipe box delivery service Marley Spoon are launching a new family meal box service in November. The plan is specifically tailored to British families offering fast, easy and healthy recipes, delivered with the exact ingredients needed to cook them at home. Every week five new recipes are available to choose from with recipes such as this tasty Chicken Pestorella Burger (recipe below), meatballs, pork chops, chilli, tagines.... with lots of tasty veggie options too.
Marley Spoon kindly sent me a box to try out myself. The box arrived promptly with all of the non perishable ingredients grouped into large brown bags - a separate bag for each recipe and the fridge ingredients in a refrigerated pack. Most of the packaging could be recycled and all of the ingredients were in a good condition upon arrival. Recipe sheets were also included and I noticed they even have a hotline to phone for any recipe box related culinary emergency!
I tried one of the recipes for lunch today to see if it tasted as good as it looked in the photo! I opted for the Chicken Pestorella Burger which took minimal effort to prepare and didn't let down on taste. It was delicious.
Marley Spoon have indicated the family style dishes will be big enough to feed 2 Adults and 2-3 Children and start from £4.35 a portion with options to cook 2, 3 or 4 times a week. A little pricey maybe, but for a busy working family it might just be the ideal solution to the mad panic at the end of the working day when you find yourself rooting around for something quick and healthy for tea.
