Dinner is now made easy, or rather easy to make with Culiniste. This Montreal based company launched a website that allows you to sign up for at home or office meal delivery (right to your door!). The difference between delivery and Culiniste? Your dinner is still missing a little heat and oil! That’s right, in this equation you’re the chef, making the experience that much more fun. Invite over friends and family for dinners, or just cook like a pro for you and yours any night of the week. Try it out yourself by clicking here for $25 off your first order until the end of the month! This subscription based program allows you to customize your orders to your eating habits and lifestyle. Vegetarian? No problem, with 6 meals a week to choose from, you have plenty of options to satisfy your taste buds and dietary restrictions. Each week you can pick from the provided meals. Fresh produce arrives on Tuesday to get you going for the week ahead. Choose between 3-4 meals a week for only 78$. You can also opt out of a week if you know you'll be eating out or traveling at any point. Part of what I find so easy about Culiniste is that 99% of what you need comes right to you. If you live in a small space, aren't a usual chef at home, are always on the go or live alone, its uncommon to have everything in your kitchen that a recipe calls for. That has always been my struggle. I do have some amazing cookbooks I love, but I end up substituting or going back to classic recipes because I know I always have the ingredients for Greek salad in my house at any given time (guilty!).
All of their delivery packaging can be recycled, plus if you leave the box out on the delivery days of your next order Culiniste will happily grab is and reuse it. The ingredients come fully packaged by meal with easy to follow step-by-step instructions (with picture! Phew!). I am no cook, and this process was extremely easy to follow, and truth be told, I had rave reviews from my dinner guests. I would have taken all the credit, but I had to share this awesome service with them (and all of you) so I fessed up. I loved the meals I made and can't wait to see whats in store to cook up next week!
At the moment Culiniste is only in Montreal, but this formula is awesome, tasty and perfect for young professionals living busy lives, still eating well and cooking for family and friends.
