FiDi Families was recently invited by downtown Mom, Stella Leo, founder of FabGabblog to test out a new food delivery service, with a twist. Meisterdish is a gourmet delivery with the food portioned out and delivered in simple packaging with easy to follow recipes. So, instead of ordering unhealthy delivery options from your takeout spot, you are able to order restaurant quality food and cook it in the comfort of your own home. And, with the ingredients pre-measured and the recipes easy to follow, its a great alternative to ordering in and instead, cooking healthy and delicious meals at home.
We had a large group of bloggers and influencers meet up at the Jenn-Air test kitchen and were invited to break up into teams to try out this new concept and find out if it was easy as we were told it would be. My group chose a gourmet recipe that I personally love and have never tried to make at home – Chicken Milanese & arugula her salad. It was actually very easy to prepare and delicious. In all honesty, I don’t know that it was as tasty as what I get at Da Claudio, but it was a very close second.
The team behind Meisterdish are intent on providing healthy and delicious restaurant grade meals to NYC. Some of the other attendees were able to cook the following and all received rave reviews:
- Mediterranean Chicken Couscous with Shiitake Mushrooms, Fresh Herbs & Sundried Tomatoes
- White Truffle Linguine with 7 Pepper Seasoning, Summer Squash & Shiitake Mushrooms
- Pad See Ew with Chicken, Chinese broccoli and cashew nuts
There are many menu options to choose from and we love the fact that it is not a subscription based program. Plus, we really appreciated the prepped ingredients so we really didn’t have to think too much about what we were doing. It was really simple. We are hoping that Mesiterdish makes its way downtown to our FiDi Families soon. But, I’m a convert and loved it.
We are also introduced to special guests Hope McGrath, a transformational life coach and stylist as well as Sonal Patel, founder of Card a Mom App – a curated friend matching app, that connects moms for playdates and conversations.
