Congratulations to Top Chef Season 12 winner, Chef Mei Lin!
You might remember Chef Mei Lin from our collaboration earlier in the season. Once again, she’s bringing the flavor in a dish inspired by her finale-winning menu, and on February 23, you’ll get a chance to cook Crispy Chicken Thighs with Braised Lettuce, Kimchi and Maitake Mushrooms from Blue Apron. In the recipe, Chef Lin takes inspiration from the flavors of Mexico – where the finale took place – with Asian flavors, like kimchi, which bring a fusion-style depth and real creativity to the dish.
The judges were so impressed with Chef Mei Lin’s meals, and now you’ll have a chance to be impressed with her too.
That’s because we’re giving you a chance to cook like a Top Chef – with a Top Chef! – by entering our contest. The winner and a guest will land a trip to New York City, where you’ll learn to cook your favorite dish from Top Chef Season 12, with the winner, Chef Mei Lin.
After your cooking lesson, you’ll go home knowing you’ve got a year’s worth of Blue Apron coming your way. That cooking, along with Top Chef’s inspiration, will help you continue your lifelong journey to be the best possible cook, eat delicious food, and have more fun in the kitchen.
