Munchery, one of the latest players in the somewhat-prepared meal delivery space, just launched in NYC. Their private chefs create a couple of entrees, sides, desserts, and drinks, and you can order any combination of them to be delivered to your door around dinnertime. It’s way easier than Blue Apron or Plated, because the meals are already fully made, so you won’t have to spend the suggested 25-35 minutes preparing dinner (or in my case, chopping lemon rind and thinly slicing rainbow chard for 2 hours). The meals arrive “chilled” but not frozen, so they just need to be popped into the microwave or oven. You can order a week in advance or same day.

Some sample items from next week’s menus:

A Fried Oreo and A Life Change

This is a tough one to write.

After some of the most wonderful times with the most extraordinary people, today is my last day at Cater2.me. I’m moving to a really awesome opportunity at CommonBond, a start-up that is changing the way grad students get and pay their student loans. My role will be helping borrowers make sense of the system, so instead of making people happy with meals, I’ll be making them happy with large amounts of money, which some people like even more than food!

Even though this is a step forward for my career, I’m incredibly sad to be leaving behind such an amazing group of people. And even more than the people, I’ll miss all the free food.

JUST KIDDING JUST KIDDING PEOPLE > FOOD

For my final days, one of my favorite catering managers, Jason from Papaya King (yes, that Papaya King!), came by with farewell fried oreos, because there’s no better way to say goodbye than with obscene carnival cuisine.

That is a FRIED STRAWBERRY OREO.

Thankfully, my new company uses Cater2.me’s services, so I’ll still be getting awesome lunches once a week. I’ll keep posting pics and writing about ludicrous food news and trends, so stay tuned.

To the next adventure!
