PeachDish Review:¬†December 19, 2013 Delivery
PeachDish¬†sent the meat¬†in the foil pouch resting right against the ice pack, which was solid. Not surprising as it was delivered in zero degree weather!
The new PeachDish¬†information cards are pretty! This is definitely an upgrade. And also, there was a ton of food!
The new PeachDish¬†recipe card is good, but it was a little hard to read.
Grapefruit & Tarragon Mahi-Mahi with Braised Fennel & Coconut Rice
This was a surprising amount of food. I liked how the fennel was packed in a compost bag. Good for city dwellers!
I was impressed – seasoned goat cheese and Carr’s crackers! One of my favorite snacks.
This was delicious and the fish portion size was impressive. The fennel was perfect, and I absolutely loved the grapefruit and tarragon. I happily ate my fish with it on top, even though I’m not a big fish eater! The rice called for a bit too much salt we thought and should have been cooked with the lid on. My husband followed the instructions to the letter.
I loved how PeachDish¬†used up the extra coconut milk in a seasonally appropriate sweet ending to the meal!
Seared Chateau Wings* with Tangerine Smashed Sweet Potatoes ¬†& Caramelized Onions
Our second meal was equally delicious and came with a substantial portion size.
My husband basically cooked both meals. I did some prep but he loves cooking so much, I let him do it. ¬†It’s so nice to enjoy cooking time without worrying what to cook or getting groceries. Especially as it’s all ice outside!
The meal started with¬†French bread and olive oil – a spice mix was provided for the oil. (Note that the oil is a provide it yourself item! Fortunately my in-laws had good quality olive oil, but that was really the only thing the entire box needed).
This was a great hearty meal and I enjoyed the flavors. I always like cooking with fruit though I never think to do it myself. The Chateau Wings were seared and incredibly tasty, I was impressed with this cut of beef. The sweet potatoes were mashed with tangerine juice and a bit of butter. We stole some of the pomegranate arils from dessert for decoration, but I ended up mounding them on mine – they were the perfect accompaniment for the sweetened potatoes.
The dessert was simple and fun – pomegranate arils and dark chocolate. Lots of antioxidants! The desserts in PeachDish aren’t typically a confection or baked good – they are usually a simple sweet treat to end the meal.
*Says PeachDish regarding “Chateau Wings”: “Our friends at¬†Halpern‚Äôs, an Atlanta meat purveyor, hand-cut tenderloin portions that they call ‚Äúchateau wings‚ÄĚ for us this week.”
PeachDish‘s¬†next box is not going out until January 7 to accommodate the holidays. ¬†They will also be offering a special Valentine’s Day box! I think that the meals were really fantastic and that¬†PeachDish‘s new 2 meal model is much more sustainable and easier to execute (on the business side)than the 1 meal box.
I was impressed with this box. For $50 you get 2 great meals with 3 courses – and enough food to feed 2 adults more than comfortably – we actually used these meals to feed the whole family – our kids are small and don’t really eat that much, and this was really a substantial amount of food. ¬†It breaks down to $12.50 per person per meal – which is¬†way¬†cheaper than eating out at a nice restaurant, and in the city, about on par with getting a fast food value meal and a dessert somewhere. If you’d like to try out PeachDish, you can get $10 off the¬†first box with coupon code¬†aEQw1MIS. One of the nice things about PeachDish is that they don’t seem to have delivery restrictions, so if you’re dying to try out a box but can’t get the other dinner kit subscriptions, this is the one to go for!
