Blue Apron is now on video! Every Thursday, we’re posting a new video on our YouTube channel and over here on the blog. Subscribe for educational how to’s, entertaining cooking adventures, and behind-the-scenes looks at how we create and source our meals.

We’ve already helped you cut down your prep time in the kitchen by finessing your knife skills and making short work of onionsgarlic, and carrots.

Today, we’re going behind the scenes with Chef Matthew Wadiak to share how we get inspired to create incredible original meals every week. For Chef Wadiak, the process often starts at the farmers’ market, where he notices some heirloom tomatoes right at their prime and bunches of basil perfuming the air with their fragrance.

What’ll happen to the tomatoes and herbs once he gets back to the kitchen? Watch to find out.
