What You'll Get
Like assembling furniture, cooking for oneself often involves lengthy instructions, unfamiliar tools, and accidentally ingesting a dresser's decorative knobs. Leave the complex kitchen work to a pro with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of home-delivered meals from Munchery.
Through a simple online ordering process, Munchery's deliveryfolk shepherd the gourmet, and largely organic, creations of local chefs to your home. Dish deliverees select items according to the date and a rotating ensemble of chefs to avoid the efforts of grocery shopping and unwrapping platter upon platter of Fruit Roll-Ups. Although it is ever-changing, the current menu features the homestyle fusion eats of chef Holly Erickson, whose grilled shrimp is smothered in a house-made harissa sauce over a bed of fluffy cinnamon couscous ($17.99). Chef Alison Mountford of Square Meals melds the flavors of Costa Rican shredded beef with onions and sweet peppers ($18.99), and forges chicken tangine with quinoa patties, which are drizzled with a cucumber-yogurt sauce and bolstered by summer vegetables ($18.99).
After a customer places an order, the Munchery's epicureans sculpt meals from scratch on the spot, utilizing in-season, sustainable, and organic ingredients, and patrons can direct their questions directly to the local chefs through an online chat system. Victuals are delivered without charge to customers on weekdays in San Francisco within selected one-hour windows between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. Munchery texts customer 10-15 minutes before arrival to allow diners to keep tabs on their food and prevent dinners from loitering with unseemly snack-food posses.
