Hello Fresh in One Word: WoW! (and a £20 Discount!)

Before we received our first Hello Fresh box, I had no idea what to expect. I knew I was going to be sent four meals to feed all of us. I was hoping for generous portions as breastfeeding makes me ravenous.

What is it & How Does it Work?
In a nutshell, the team at Hello Fresh create recipes alongside clearly illustrated step-by-step instructions to cook delicious meals. They source high-quality ingredients and send you a box containing the exact quantities you need, so there is no waste. They deliver the ingredients and recipes in a chilled box. All you have to do is put together delicious meals from scratch, without having to worry about what you are going to cook or sourcing the ingredients.

Hello Fresh - Recipe Cards

Our First Impressions
The family box was big and it promised to provide four meals for a family of four to five people, which was ideal for us with two adults and three little ones eating.

The worry I had before I opened the box was that the parcel had been sent two days before we received it and it did not arrive in a refrigerated lorry. It turned out the fresh stuff was as cold as it would have been in my fridge thanks a very careful packaging method. Some might argue that it is wasteful, but it works.

I already had quite a few of the ingredients at home, but convenience of having it all pre-packaged meant no time at all would be wasted when cooking.

Discovering what was inside felt like opening a Christmas present. I am not exaggerating. For someone like me who loves food but cannot stand food shopping, this is a serious treat! Everything was carefully labelled and all ingredients were fresh and of high quality.

I felt like a child about to play with a new toy (I know, easily pleased!) and as soon as I had all the ingredients out I was wondering which of the meals I would cook that night.

Hello Fresh Box - Ingredients

What we Ate
I looked at the cards with Beanie and asked her which one she fancied. My girl is a big fan of soup so it was no surprise to me when she opted for the Silver Lining Carrot, Pancetta and Lentil Soup with Herb Foccacia. When I looked at the recipe, I thought it would be interesting as the vast majority of the ingredients are the same ones as my favourite tomato sauce.

Beanie ate the chunky version and I blended it for the rest of us.

There was enough for all of us as well as light lunch for four of us the next day. A big bonus for me was that although she could not have the focaccia, there was nothing Jumpy was allergic to in the soup.

Our second meal was the Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin with Peppercorn Sauce. That was incredible. Seriously. It felt like dinner for a special occasion. The meat was tender and of high quality, the sauce divine. It is definitely a recipe I will make again. Hubby was wowed! Jumpy had it as well, and there were leftovers for her lunch the next day. It really is one of the best meals I have had in ages. I am so glad I can make it again now I have the recipe card. I just hope I can source meat that is as good as the one from our Hello Fresh box. Here is what Crevette’s plate looked like:

Hello Fresh - Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin with Peppercorn Sauce

The Fiery Roasted Red Pepper Fettuccine ‘a Nido’ pasta was devoured too quickly to be photographed. All I had to do for Jumpy to enjoy it as well was cook her ‘free from’ pasta separately. We had enough for lunch the next day.

Hubby made the Beef Stir Fry. Let’s just say he has to work on his presentation skills before I can take photos of food he makes. It was delicious but way too spicy for the kids. Hubby and I loved it and we had leftovers for lunch the next day.

Our Conclusions
It is fair to say Hello Fresh combines gourmet food and convenience.

I found the recipe cards absolutely brilliant, with their step-by-step instructions and clear photos, as well as suggestions on how to involve the little ones.

The service is not cheap but Hubby and I agree it is worth every penny. We absolutely loved our family box. Hubby is generally unimpressed by this kind of service as he finds it a waste of money, but he has been telling everyone at work about Hello Fresh!
