Well, DropChef just might be the perfect solution to all your cookery woes. This dynamic and exciting food business specialises in a Boxed Meal-Kit delivery service that’s available nationwide.
More and more we find the pace of life is quickening up, between work and family, this leaves little time for anything else including creating a tasty meal. The DropChef service aims to solve this in an environmentally friendly and convenient way.
Co-Founder of DropChef Roman Grogan excitedly tells us about their offering stating, ‘Our service is solving a problem for the time poor consumer, there is a demand out there for cooking and eating healthy food.’
DropChef offers a weekly subscription plan for 1-5 people and you can choose from 2-4 recipe meals each week. If you’re weary of a contract subscription service then fear not as the DropChef service can easily be paused or cancelled at any time.
The Good Food Ireland® team happily tried and tested the DropChef service and we can say for sure that it’s a great way to get healthy meals cooked and eaten in a timely manner. The ambient ingredients are packaged in a colour coded bag matching the recipe card. The fresh raw ingredients are vacuum packed with the matching colour code and stored in a thermal wrap with a frozen ice pack to ensure the ingredients arrive to you in optimal condition.
What’s even better is that all the core ingredients are there for you, so there’ll be no need for a dash to the supermarket to pick up the lone ingredient you forgot in your weekly food shop. Moreover, the DropChef service does away with that food waste guilt you get when clearing out the fridge. Portions are measured in such a way that you’ve plenty to eat for the meal plan you choose, with no waste leftover.
This holistic approach to food and dining is also seen in DropChef’s conscientious sourcing of local ingredients. Irish producers of meat, fish, dairy and vegetables are prioitised, helping to deliver a healthy and authentic food experience.
DropChef features a menu that changes weekly. Recipes include some familiar mealtime favourites but also introduces you to some new exciting flavours across a range of stews, curries, baked dishes and pasta dishes. There’s also plenty of vegetarian options full of flavour.
DropChef’s Boxed Meal Kit service is empowering and educating food enthusiasts to enjoy and interact with the food they eat in a fun way, along with allowing the cooking of healthy food more accessible to the public.
Sustainable practices are a key component to the DropChef operation. The service runs on the basis of zero waste food. The recipes that you receive in your food box are designed to use up all the ingredients for your meal meaning no excess food is wasted.
All the packaging including the box is suitable for recycling. Moreover, DropChef can organise a ‘collect and return’ facility for the silver foil, thermal packaging and ice packs.
DropChef also priortise the use of Irish ingredients in their boxes ensuring you get that authentic Irish food experience.
