    I understand the convenience of these meal-delivery boxes for busy can't-cook-for-shit typa people but HOLY SHIT THAT'S SO MUCH PACKAGING!!!! Like... really? REALLY?! An individually wrapped zucchini and a plastic packet containing 0.5 grams of chili flakes? For fuck's sakes!

    For everyone complaining about the plastic packaging, there’s also hello fresh, and I’m not saying they have less plastic in their boxes because I truly don’t know as I haven’t tried any brand of pre-prepped food boxes, but hello fresh sometimes has boxes of meals you can buy in a grocery store, which cuts down on transportation to your home, the box it woudl come in, and considering they’re relatively small boxes, I don’t think there’s much plastic in there. I know this isn’t super helpful because I don’t know what’s inside, but it’s a slightly better option if your grocery store offers them.

    Don't believe everything you find on the internet, Babish. Snapping asparagus is the best way to eliminate the tough part of the stem. I've tied both methods, along with peeling for years and I've come back to the simple snap.

    I have made both the sheet pan salmon and one pot chicken now. I have to say, these are both staying in my dinner rotation. I love the versatility of both dishes and have made changes to both to suit my taste. Very good recipes!

    Hi Andrew/Babish/Master Chef Supreme, I'm a young boy that has just moved out for college who cannot buy alcohol. When you use alcohol in recipes, is it essential or can they be replaced?

    So, I like the look of that pan chicken, but I'm teetotal. I know that cooking with liquor isn't the same as drinking it, but I don't have any in the house for either purpose. Are there any good options to substitute for that step of the recipe?

    It always blows my mind how out of touch these companies can be.
    Meal prep is a trend that’s very popular with millenials and centennials. So these meal prep services’ core demographic is young people. Yet these same young people are the ones who despise waste, both physical waste and financial waste. It’s like they don’t even know who they’re marketing to.

    Personally I don’t understand why people choose chicken thighs over breasts, why would you want more fat than actual meat? Why not just get a chicken breast? Idk I just hate chicken thighs, too much fat, skin, etc

    I've never tried blue apron as I am: A) cheap B) environmentally conscious (or try to be) C) Literally regret ordering groceries every time because of what they pick. That said, I feel like it could be really really great for someone that is maybe learning to cook and doesn't have confidence. The idea of instantly having everything you need and instructions is pretty cool.
