10 Things You May Not Know About HelloFresh September 25, 2017
Here at HelloFresh, food is just the beginning. And dinner? Doesn’t begin to cover it.
Some of you have been in the Fresh Fam for years. Others, months. And some just days (in which case, welcome!). But because there’s been a whole lot going on here over the past year — from exciting menu updates to completely new products — we figured it wouldn’t hurt to get everyone on the same page with these 10 nuggets of HelloFresh knowledge. This way, you can make the most out of your time in the kitchen and have all the fun without any of the fuss.
1. There are 15 recipes on the menu each week.
Because “dinner” and “boring” should never be in the same sentence. Ever. And with a wide variety of chef-curated recipes to choose from every week, they don’t have to.
2. Customer favorites make a comeback every week as Hall of Fame recipes.
Because when thousands of home cooks tell us they love specific recipes, we listen. And then, we bring back one tried-and-true, all-time customer favorite on the Classic, Veggie, and Family menu once a week. Just think of ’em as the cream of the crop. The varsity team of HelloFresh. The guaranteed crowd-pleasers you can bet your taste buds on.
Next week’s Classic Plan Hall of Famer? Figgy Balsamic Pork with Roasted Green Beans and Rosemary Potatoes. (Hint hint: there’s still time to order it!)
3. There’s even a Premium option.
Because sometimes, you want to treat yourself to an elegant recipe with a handpicked selection of premium ingredients — but you DON’T want to spend hours in the kitchen or deal with super complicated recipes. We totally get it, which is why there’s a Premium recipe every week. We’re talking pan-seared duck breast, prosciutto-wrapped chicken, balsamic-drizzled skirt steak, and even next week’s butter-basted rib-eye steak.
While these recipes are tailor-made for date night and special occasions, they’re also simple and quick enough to make on, say, your ordinary Wednesday.

4. Pressed for time? We’ve got a 20-Minute Meal every week.
Because with rocket-fast recipes that come together in T-20 minutes, busy schedules will never get in the way of eating delicious, home-cooked food.
Case in point: next week’s Creamy Shrimp Tagliatelle with Heirloom Tomatoes, Garlic, and Chili.

5. There’s an entire meal plan specifically designed for vegetarians.
Because our chefs absolutely love creating plant-based recipes for all the veg heads in the Fresh Fam complete with hearty whole grains, seasonal produce, and vegetarian proteins.
6. Every recipe on the Family Plan menu is kid-tested and approved.
Because those little ones have big opinions, so it’s important to get that picky eater seal of approval on every recipe that makes its way into onto the Family Plan menu. But don’t worry, adults — we didn’t forget about you. Recipes like next week’s Parmesan Chicken Tenders with Rosemary Fries, Green Beans, and Honey Mustard Sauce will have kids and adults alike reaching for seconds.
7. The recipe archive has over 2,500 of our best chef creations.
Because who wants to spend hours fishing for recipes? Not us. Fortunately, the recipe archive is organized by category (quick, Hall of Fame, family friendly, easy to cook, most recent, etc) and cuisine type, so you can easily find exactly what you’re craving.
8. We have a Wine Club.
Because there’s nothing quite like top-quality wines conveniently delivered to your doorstep that are ALSO hand-selected to pair with your meals. Talk about a win-win.

9. We sell our favorite Kitchenware.
Because cooking is so much more fun when your kitchen is stocked with chef-approved essentials — from pots and pans to knives and everything in between (even tools for your budding sous chefs!). Select items are curated into kits, which means it’s easier than ever to find everything you need all in one place.
10. We’re as flexible as your lifestyle.
Because with so many different schedules and taste preferences, one standard solution just doesn’t cut it. That’s why we offer customizable weekly menus, flexible deliveries, and the option to pause or cancel anytime — although with recipes like Sweet Italian Sausages and Blistered Tomatoes over Cheesy Kale Polenta, we have a feeling you won’t want to.
