Online grocery leader Peapod has teamed with a James Beard Foundation Award-winning chef for a line of meal kits.
The collaboration between Peapod and Stephanie Izard began this summer with two meal kits inspired by some of Izard’s favorite dishes. More dishes are planned for the fall.
Izard, the first woman to win Bravo's “Top Chef” competition, runs several critically acclaimed restaurants in Chicago: Girl & the Goat, Little Goat, Duck Duck Goat and Cabra.
The first two kits are Yucatan Fish Tacos and Belize Grilled Chicken Sandwich. Coming this fall are Roasted Asian Chicken Thighs and Hong Kong Slow Cooked Short Ribs.
"As a mom and business owner, I understand how life can just get busy! But that shouldn't take away your chance for a tasty dinner," Izard says. "I'm excited to partner with Peapod to make some of my favorite recipes easy to cook at home."
The kits come in serving sizes of four, starting around $6 per serving. All kits feature pre-measured, pre-cut, and pre-washed fresh ingredients that can be added to customers' shopping carts along with other grocery essentials.
