Community Weigh-In is a new weekly series that polls the community on a range of subscription-related topics. Each week, we'll pose a new question to the community and then share the results here in the feed. Hop over to the MSA Forum to cast your vote for next week's poll!
As a group of passionate boxinistas, this community knows a thing or two about subscriptions, and you all have opinions. I've watched you debate whether spoilers are a zero or a hero, sing the praises of those perfect didn't-even-know-I-needed-it items, and suggest ways that a lackluster shipment could have been great with a few small tweaks. As a community, we may not always agree on what constitutes the perfect subscription, but we sure do have fun talking it out.
This series is designed to give us all a chance to do just that. Each week, I'll pose a new question in the MSA Forum, and then I'll round up the results to share with you all here in the feed. Last week, I asked:
Which celebrity chef would you most like to see guest curate a meal kit menu?
Here are the choices:
- Gordon Ramsay
- Ina Garten
- Wolfgang Puck
- Carla Hall
- Marcus Samuelsson
- Guy Fieri
- Rachael Ray
- David Chang
- Someone else!
Participants are allowed to select more than one answer, so the percentages reflect the total number of voters who would like to see that item in a box this spring. Let's dive into the results!
When it comes to celebrity chefs, you all have a clear favorite. 45% of voters cast a ballot for Gordon Ramsay. Hot on his heels is Guy Fieri with 37%. Coming in just a little bit behind is Ina Garten, who was selected by 25% of all voters. 8% would be happy to see meals from Momofuku's David Chang, and 4% would like meals designed by Carla Hall. Surprisingly, not a lot of Rachael Ray or Wolfgang Puck fans in the house. Neither of these kitchen maestros got a single vote.
4% of voters wanted to see Something Else:
I can’t believe there’s no Bobby Flay or Alex Guarnaschelli. Like Lindsey?! -Jessica-MSA
I voted for Gordan Ramsay… I also think it would be cool to have The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond… I have cooked a lot of her recipes… They are not as Gourmet but like every day food… -cherilynn8
Rick Bayless. -Sherri
Is Jamie Oliver still around? -ebbgirls
Good question! I bet he'd be a great guest meal kit curator.
I also have to give a hat tip to AnDreama, who may have just come up with the best subscription box concept of all time:
Where is the subscription box where I get to hang out with Ina Garten at her house while she teaches me how to cook and garden, and we drink fun cocktails? I need that, please and thanks. -AnDreama
Same, AnDreama. Same.
