You Can Be A Gourmet Chef – Peach Dish Meals Review
Are you tired of the same old routine in the kitchen? Peach Dish has made dinner an adventure for us this week! The Peach Dish is an online service that allows you to choose two meals and have all the pre-measured fresh ingredients delivered right to your front door on a weekly basis. Peach Dish gives you the option of two vegetarian dishes on every menu. Mix and match as you please! You choose the two meals before midnight on Sunday and your package arrives on Thursday. The box was insulated and contained a cold pack that kept the food chilled during transport. The fresh ingredients were still fresh!
Now I must admit, I am not a gourmet cook. We love the old reliable dishes like spaghetti and meatballs, macaroni and cheese and pot roast at my house. Those I can cook to beat the band. I will try new simple recipes but am often hesitant to try dishes that are fancy or contain ingredients I do not normally use. It can be really expensive to try new dishes because you have to buy all the ingredients and if we don’t like it I have wasted my time and money.
Trying these Peach Dish meals was a lot of fun and really opened my eyes that trying new dishes is not as cumbersome as I believed. The Peach Dish meals provided all of the ingredients except for some of your basics like olive oil, salt and pepper. The recipe cards had all of the instructions and photos needed to prepare the meal. I have to say the chopping, peeling and adding of fresh ingredients really made me feel like a gourmet cook.
I was astonished at how easy Peach Dish made it for me to cook a fancy meal. I tried the Sweet Potato and Chard Risotto Infused with Rosemary and Sprinkled with Parmesan and Nutmeg first. I really enjoyed using the fresh rosemary, chard and nutmeg. They even sent me a little grinder for the nutmeg.
I took some pictures while cooking this and put them together in a photo collage for you. Did I mention how much I love having all the ingredients I needed right at my fingertips. I wasn’t digging through cupboards or worried that I would be missing an ingredient. This dish came together beautifully and I actually made a great Risotto dish! Wonder what Chef Ramsay Gordon would say about my Risotto!
We are always looking to eat healthier but often find ourselves side tracked by convenience and lack of imagination. This meal ensured that we not only ate well but healthier. One of the best parts of cooking this meal is that it actually looked like the picture for once. I was able to plate the food and serve it up like we were in a restaurant. Peach Dish is a great way to liven up meal time and boost your cooking confidence.
The second meal I cooked was the Chicken Breast with White Bean and Apple Salsa and Sauteed Butternut Squash and Feta. Peach Dish is a great way to try some new flavors and ingredients. I have never eaten Feta cheese and I have been missing out. The squash and Feta cheese was delicious. Now I know that I can order a dish with Feta cheese instead of steering away from that selection. Also, I will definitely make the Butternut squash with Feta again in the future.
If you like to cook the Peach Dish is an easy way to cook and try healthy, good tasting meals. If you don’t like to cook, Peach Dish makes it easy and will certainly boost your confidence in your own cooking. Recipes and ingredients that make it easier for us to eat healthier, are priceless in my book.
This type of service would be beneficial for a small family or young and old couples. This is not a service that I would recommend for feeding a large family. If you are younger and want to learn how to cook this is an excellent way to try something new and different in the kitchen. If you are older like myself this is a great service to help you get out of your cooking rut and wow your partner at the dinner table. I even wowed myself these were so good!
Peach Dish sent me a feedback request through my email after the meals were delivered. I was able to tell them I what I though of the meals and I think that is an important part of customer service. They want to know what the consumer felt and if there were any problems with their service.
If you want to broaden your cooking capabilities, spruce up your menu or just have fun then give Peach Dish a try. You will spice up dinner time (literally). What a great way to try new foods too.
Peach Dish is a good value and great treat for your palate. I really have enjoyed the product and the ease of use. The pre-measured ingredients and recipes were great. PeachDish’s box was developed with 100% recycled and biodegradable liners, and they’re soon getting 100% biodegradable bags as well. Peach Dish is green minded too! The cost of the service has value. If you are a single dad or mom with one child, you can feed yourself two meals a week with this subscription. The cost would be comparable to buying two dinners at the store.
You can buy or order a Peach Dish box at PeachDish.com. This would make a great gift for anyone who eats! 🙂 You can also make this a gift for that special cook or the person that does not cook in your family. Trying Peach Dish has a been a special experience for myself and the family. I assure you that you will enjoy it too!
