UpMeals for busy households
The holidays can be nuts, and might be just the time to try a meal subscription service. UpMeals boasts not only high-quality, nutrient-dense, seasonal ingredients but dishes created by local chefs on the menu.
For the subscription launch, they have brought in Joël Watanabe (Kissa Tanto, Bao Bei), Nihal Elwan (Tayybeh Syrian catering), and Kim Vo (Châm Châm vegan Vietnamese takeout and delivery) to add to the menu.
The chefs contributed the Andalucia Bowl, Muhammara Chicken Wrap, and Vietnamese Zoodle Salad, respectively.
“The chef collabs with be on the menus for several weeks to give users the chance to experience them all and we’ll be recruiting and working with new collaborators, chefs and otherwise, all the time,” says Drew Munro, UpMeals co-founder and CEO.
