NEW YORK, May 29, 2020 — Award-winning chef and restaurateur, Tim Hollingsworth, has created a menu of recipes inspired by his famous cooking style exclusively for Blue Apron to bring seasonal, summertime staples to home cooks across the country. Beginning the week of June 29 through the week of July 20, Blue Apron customers can channel their inner gourmet chef with new, elevated takes on family favorites curated specially by Hollingsworth in partnership with Blue Apron’s culinary team.

Known for using high quality and sustainable ingredients, Hollingsworth combines the flavors and memories of the backyard cookouts of his Texas childhood with California cuisine and his wife Coco’s Lebanese culinary traditions, into restaurant-quality dishes that can be made at home.

“Growing up in Texas, dinner was a family affair, with everyone coming together to make a meal. 

I’ve passed on the tradition to my kids and invite families everywhere to get together in the kitchen and get creative,” said Hollingsworth. “ With Blue Apron, fresh, pre-portioned ingredients are delivered straight to your door, making it easy for families small and large to explore new flavors and types of cuisine.” 

The five new Blue Apron x Tim Hollingsworth recipes include: 

  • Chicken with Walnut Mahammara, Couscous & Labneh
  • Grilled BBQ NY Strip Steaks with Baked Beans and Grilled Zucchini
  • Salmon with Tamarind Sauce, Aromatic Rice and Crispy Onions
  • Salsa Chicken Tacos with Snap Pea Elote
  • Shrimp with Ginger-Tomato Cream and Rice Cakes

“This collaboration invites Blue Apron members to host their own family cookouts that savor the classic summer flavors from Tim Hollingsworth’s kitchen,” said John Adler, Vice President of Culinary at Blue Apron. “Whether you want to spend time outside by the grill, or keep it indoors on the stovetop, this culinary experience will give our members the chance to bring out their inner chef and connect over a delicious dinner.”
