Disclosure: I received product from Relished for a review. I only review and endorse products that I enjoy and believe that my readers will, too. All opinions are my own.
What can I really say that will completely convey my excitement when the box from Relished was delivered? Suffice it to say that, since the box was delayed for a day because of a snowstorm, I ripped into it immediately, sure that some of the produce would have been compromised.
Nope. Instead, I found an expertly lined, insulated, and chilled box of food. (The cooler packs in the bottom were still almost completely frozen and everything was cold to the touch! No worries of food poisoning here at all!)
There are a ton of things that I love about Relished. After how cold the food was, the second thing I noticed was the full-sized recipe cards– perfect for slipping into a recipe binder. And the cards left nothing to be desired– full color pictures, step-by-step directions… They even include plating instructions and wine pairings. And the directions are explicit to a T– if you’ve never cooked the recipe or used a certain technique before, their explanations are specific– there’s nothing to worry about!
The next thing I absolutely adored? The meals all came prepackaged and labeled. There’s no guesswork or trying to figure out which items belong where. I popped each separate meal into the fridge, bag and all.
And then, well, the best thing of all– the food! I had two absolute favorites of the three meals. Here are the ingredients for Naan Pizza. Just check out all of that lovely, delicious food– artichoke hearts, fresh basil, shallots, roasted red peppers…
Here’s what the pizzas looked like– one naked so you can see how delish all of the veggies under the cheese and basil were! And the taste? I would never have put these flavors on a pizza, but after one bite, I knew I was going to be sad when it was gone. (And I was.)
Here’s the finished, cheesy product. (And I plated it just as the directions told me to!) So. Good.
My other favorite meal was a Spinach, Pasta, and Shrimp dish. Look at these ingredients! And check out how awesome the shrimp is! I was not expecting that we would receive the quality seafood that we did. It was absolutely delicious!
And of course, the finished product!
All in all, there was not a single thing I was disappointed in with Relished. From their excellent customer service to the quality produce and proteins to the ease of creating the meal, everything was first-class and amazing! Check them out and give them a try!
