Review: Burgundy Box


Sometimes you just want to dig into a delicious gourmet meal right in the comfort of your home. And what makes it more special, is when that meal is made at home within minutes. Yes, a gourmet meal at home in minutes. Hard to believe?

Burgundy Box makes it happen. Burgundy Box provides BurgunDIY meal kits and Ready-to-eat meal kits. BurgunDIY meal kits are freshly prepped DIY (Do it Yourself) kit boxes that contain the freshest ingredients and a easy to follow recipe to make your gourmet creation in minutes!

BurgunDIY Box is Burgundy in colour (haha)

Thanks to BrandedBawi's - Zenia Irani - 2nd Blogversary celebrations, I got the chance to receive one of the BurgunDIY kits and try it out for myself. Big Thank you to Zenia!

What's inside the box?


One Box and so many fresh ingredients! 
Overwhelmed on receiving this box, I readied myself to cook. I had selected the Chicken Green Thai Curry with Steamed Rice BurgunDIY Box.



The ingredients were ready. No chopping, cutting, prepping required. All the ingredients for the Chicken Green Thai Curry came in neatly labelled and numbered plastic containers. Along with the ingredients was a dead simple recipe to follow. In a separate container was steamed rice, that needed a quick heating.


The one thing that I wondered ever since I received the box : Will it taste like a restaurant Green Thai Curry?

With that in mind, I proceeded with making the curry by following the recipe instructions to the tee.


Saute the garlic and green chilli


Add the cut chicken

Add the curry condiments and coconut milk

Add the veggies

Voila! Chicken Green Thai Curry

And to answer my own question, the meal was truly delicious. It tasted so delicious and restaurant-like that I had to stop myself from polishing off the meal alone. My family too enjoyed the meal as well.

My Views:

I believe it is best for working couples who would like to enjoy a gourmet meal minus the hassles of searching & buying, cleaning, painstakingly chopping the ingredients and searching a perfectly tried and tested recipe.

Suggestions:


  • Once the box is received it needs to be kept in the refrigerator if its not going to be cooked immediately.
  • It is best to cook the meal immediately or withing a couple of hours, to avoid spoiling of the ingredients.


Go try BurgunDIY Box yourself. It is riDIYculously easy!

  2. What is the real cost of food? Sustainable food promotes environmental, economic, social and nutritional well being. Whether in a school system, hospital, restaurant or university there are no two food systems that are, nor should be, alike. However, when it comes to dollars and cents, every establishment shares the same common denominators - food, labor, and other expenses. It's these realities that will ultimately be affected - up or down, and can ensure a program's success. organic cultured ghee

  4. All those who are trying to lose weight know how difficult it is to feel full on a restricted diet. The biggest mistake dieters make is to restrict most of the foods from their diets without adding anything nutritious and new. When you are restricting too severely, you will not be able to stick to your new diet plan. Vegetables are full of nutrients and vitamins and provide most of what is required by the body to function normally when you are trying to lose weight. carote
