Chicago is home to countless gourmet restaurants, constantly elevating our own culinary expectations, and frankly, making us a little lazy in the Home Ec. department. That said, despite our lack of culinary genius like that of Stephanie Izard (Girl and the Goat), every now and then we still like to try our hand at gourmet cuisine–as unsuccessful as some of our attempts may be. Plated is our solution to cooking gourmet meals. Like you, between, work, the gym, hobbies, and social life balance, we often end up picking up takeout for a late dinner on the couch. Grocery shopping, cooking, and clean up- no thanks, we'll take the easy route! However, being the online gurus that we are, we loved shopping Plated's weekly meal options, making our selections and having them delivered to our homes just days later. With the exception of a few kitchen essentials, such as salt, pepper, and a little olive oil, everything needed for the recipes comes carefully packaged and delivered to your door.
To our surprise, the meals made us feel like real chefs- we can cook!!
