My family had the opportunity to try out two dishes from Peach Dish over two weeks. Our meal the first week was Caramelized Onion Pizza with Chicken & Arugula!
Here’s a look at the recipe and instructions.
The reverse side of the recipe booklet has nutrition information, as well as the chef’s bio. I really like that they put all the nutrition information on the card!
Peach Dish also included a note listing the sourcing of all the ingredients this week. I think this is the sourcing for all the dishes they offered this week, not just the pizza. I like how everything is local!
I know I took a lot of pictures of the packaging for this review, but I wanted to make sure you know that the chicken was packaged separately from the other ingredients, in this little insulated packet.
What gorgeous little chicken breasts! They look absolutely perfect!
This is the rest of the ingredients for the pizza. We ordered dinner for four, obviously, so Peach Dish sent me two kits for two people to make all together. This picture represents the ingredients needed for two servings, but we received twice this much.
This is one of my four completed pizzas! I generally make great tasting food that looks terrible, but this actually came out pretty appetizing looking! It was also absolutely delicious! Unfortunately, it took forever to make. It was seriously in the neighborhood of two hours to make all four pizzas. This was definitely a bad idea for a weeknight meal! To be fair, I was feeling a little stressy when it came, so it might have been partially my fault, but I am sure I could not have made these in under an hour.
Peach Dish also included a little dessert, two tangerines and two gourmet chocolates. I love that they included these! What a nice touch! Although their web site promises seasonal items, and I think tangerines are in season in December. It’s not a big deal to me, but I know that eating seasonally is important to some people.
For our second week, we chose SuperFood Tofu Bowl with Sriracha Nuts & Spring Vegetables as our meal from Peach Dish.
This is the recipe and instructions for this meal.
This is the nutritional information for this meal, and the chef information is the same. By the way, if you’re ever in Atlanta and you have some VERY SERIOUS celebrating to do, Bacchanalia is the place to go!
This letter was included, detailing the sourcing of this week’s ingredients. It also speaks a bit about their new jute packaging.
This is what we received in this week’s box.
This week’s ingredients were also grouped into two meals for two, so this is a picture of half of the ingredients.
Here’s one of the completed tofu bowls! Yum, this was also delicious! This recipe wasn’t nearly as difficult to complete; it only took me about 45 minutes to do everything. It also made pretty large portions. I’ve been eating leftovers for a couple of days now, and they are just as delicious re-heated!
This week they sent us a pair of peaches and a couple of chocolate chip cookies for dessert. (Peaches are not in season until late summer, btw. Still not a big deal to me.) I love having fresh fruit for dessert!
Verdict: I think Peach Dish is a wonderful subscription for people who maybe don’t enjoy shopping and figuring out recipes so much, but who love to cook. Everything was very well-packaged and arrived fresh. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. Everything was seasonal except the fruit in the desserts. Both meals were fairly healthy, although the calorie count on the pizza was pretty high, as you would expect. Yes, I know I didn’t have to choose pizza. Most importantly, everything tasted really delicious, and I made it myself! My only issue is that they were both pretty labor-intensive dishes, which I don’t particularly enjoy. There was a LOT of chopping involved, for example. This is why I think it would be better for people who truly relish the act of cooking!
