There are a handful of companies out there that deliver everything you need to cook a great meal directly to your front door, but none are quite like Chefday, a Brooklyn-based startup that is currently delivering to New York City. Every single ingredient needed to make the dish, including salt and pepper, is pre-measured and included in a tidy brown bag along with detailed instructions, and recipes are all created by respected chefs. To top it off, all the steps that go into preparing each dish have been filmed, so you can watch the chef cooking the dish from your computer or mobile device while you cook along.
So what exactly do they offer? You can take a look at all their dishes on their website, but here are a few that they’re especially excited about with Valentine’s Day approaching:
Parmesan veal Milanese with a side salad, from Isola Trattoria chef Victor Laplaca
Scallop risotto from chef Luis Plaza (pictured)
Asparagus-stuffed salmon with citrus sauce from Lexington Brass chef Chris Leahy
Stir-fried green bean vermicelli from The Next Iron Chef runner-up Jehangir Mehta, with 12 vegetables and Indian spices
