And the winner is….

Thanks to all of you who participated in our first photo contest! We loved seeing your creative plates and delicious renditions of Hanger Steak with “Creamed” Spinach & Lemon-Butter Purple Potatoes,  Steak Fajitas with Guacamole, and Blood Orange Roasted Salmon with Chickpea & Cucumber Salad. It was tough to narrow it down to a top 20, let alone top 3, but after much team deliberation, we’ve selected our winners!

First prize, the Kikuichi chef’s knife, a spot on our wall, and a free week of Blue Apron,  goes to @giselitapr and her pup Lola!

Enter to Win: Our First Photo Contest!

Dear Blue Apron Chefs,

Each week, we love seeing all of the photos you all post on social media. We’ve even begun decorating our office with your artwork! We love seeing our customer’s cooking skills in action, and we’d like to see more of your handiwork on our wall — so we’re rounding up the best photos on Instagram for our latest office improvement project.

What’s in it for you? We’ll pick three winners for a spot on our wall and to receive a free week of Blue Apron! One grand prize winner will receive a Kikuichi chef’s knife, valued at over $250. These knives are handcrafted in Japan, forged by master sword makers.  They are preferred by our chef — you might even notice one on the back of the recipe cards!

To enter, just post photos of your culinary creations to Instagram, and tag it with #BlueApronContest. Each recipe is a new chance to win!  We’ll pick our favorites and announce the winners on April 1, giving you 3 full weeks to show us your stuff.

Thanks for cooking with us,

The Blue Apron Team

Help feed a hungry family on Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving approaching, we realize that many of you may be traveling.  A few generous subscribers have asked us to allow them to donate their delivery to a family in need, and we wanted to make this option available to everybody.

To help bring delicious, home-cooked Thanksgiving meals to hungry families, we’ve teamed up with City Harvest, an organization we work with regularly. City Harvest has been feeding families in need in New York City for over 30 years.

If you will be away for the holiday and would like to send your delivery to a family in need, please log in to your account to donate your Thanksgiving delivery. You’ll need to elect to donate your meal before noon on Thursday, November 15th.

For every donated box, Blue Apron will donate an additional 5% to our partners at City Harvest.
