*WIN* with Hello Fresh - A New Food Concept

Pete and I recently had the pleasure of sampling a new food concept which has just  launched in Sydney. It's called Hello Fresh, set up by a group of foodies and home cooks including 2011 Masterchef contestant Tom Rutledge. The team also includes a qualified nutritionist.


What is Hello Fresh?
It's a great new food concept which provides you with an alternative way to prepare your evening meals. Each week the team at Hello Fresh put together a new range of tasty nutritionally balanced recipes using seasonal ingredients. You simply log on, choose from the classic or family options available (Minimum 3 meals) and place your order.
  • There are no contracts;
  • Ingredients are seasonal and fresh ( never frozen);
  • Ingredients are portion controlled - there is no wastage;
  • Recipes take no more than 30 minutes to prepare;
  • You can choose meals to accommodate between 2 to 6 people;
  • Delivery is free and at a time convenient to you (including after business hours).

What we cooked:
  • Cajun chicken w/ warm corn salad;
  • Barramundi w/ barley, capsicum & zucchini; and
  • Tuscan cavolo nero & bean soup

What we thought:
Firstly, we really liked the flexible delivery times. The ingredients all arrived in one box which was organised and packed really well - with cold items ( fish & chicken) packed in a separate cool pack contained within the larger box.


The meals themselves were absolutely delicious. There was no wastage which was fantastic and the recipes were really simple to follow and fun to make. The recipes are not complex and would be suitable for even your basic home cook to follow.


I enjoyed preparing the recipes as they were quick and involved new flavour combinations that were really tasty.

Overall, we loved the concept and have discussed placing an order in the near future. The best part about the concept apart from the fact that the food tastes great is that we don't have to think about what to cook each night and it fits in really well with our busy schedule.


The Competition:
The Food Mentalist & Hello Fresh are giving one lucky Sydney reader the chance to win a Gourmet Box which will be delivered to their home.

At the moment Hello Fresh only deliver to certain areas within Sydney so this competition is only open to residents who reside within a 20km radius from the CBD. Check if they deliver in your area by clicking here then click on Plans and Pricing and enter your postcode.

TO WIN - all you have to do is head on over to the Hello Fresh website here, find the sample menus and tell us which recipe you like the sound of most.

You can enter once daily until midday Saturday 22 September when the winner will be decided. 

The winner will be chosen from the correct entries at random and notified by email so please ensure you include a valid email address and your suburb with your response.

Enjoy & have a great weekend!

Which meal ended up being your favourite? :D

Hi Lorraine, we loved all three meals but perhaps my favourite would be the Barramundi because I had never cooked barley like that before and it was so delicious!

I am with Gaby, Pork Cutlet and asian slaw sounds pretty great. Mainly as it isn't something I have tried before.

Thunder Chicken is also something I am curious about!
