If you haven’t looked at the calendar lately, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Each year, this holiday seems to sneak up on us, and many people rush out for that last-minute gift and try to book a dinner reservation.
But Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest days of the year for most restaurants, and securing a table or booth may be a challenge. And even if you make your reservation in time, when you arrive you’ll find that you’re dealing with crowds and waiting longer than usual for your meal to arrive. Our sponsor, HelloFresh, wants you to know there’s a better option. If you’d really like to impress your Valentine this year, don’t eat out – eat in!
Who does the cooking in your household? Whoever it is, they can tell you that there’s no better gift than taking a night off. But that doesn’t have to mean an expensive dinner for two at a fancy restaurant. Did you know you can order a gift from HelloFresh and receive all of the ingredients for a gourmet meal delivered right to your doorstep? Best of all, the price per plate is around $10!
Here are some of the top reasons you should consider dining in this Valentine’s Day.
After browsing through the available recipes, select which meals you’d like for that week and enter any special requests you have for shipping dates and times.
Tip within a tip: Not everyone craves the same type of meal. Before you order your Valentine’s Day dish, read this article to find your sweetheart’s food horoscope.
HOW DOES THE FOOD ARRIVE?
Your food arrives in a refrigerated box that will stay fresh up until midnight on the day of your delivery. When you receive the box, you can store its contents in your refrigerator, and the food will stay fresh for up to a week.
Nearly all of the ingredients you’ll need are included in the box. However, there are a few staples that you’ll need to have. Your HelloFresh package will typically not include items that most households keep readily on hand. Some examples include eggs, salt (Kosher or sea salt), pepper, olive oil and vegetable oil.
Specialty spices and everything else that you need to make your dish taste perfect are included in the box along with a detailed recipe card with prep and cooking instructions.
The box will also include a helpful recipe card that outlines the preparation steps for each meal. Here’s an example of what each recipe card looks like.
