As pop culture influences all aspects of people’s lives, the kitchen is becoming the place where fans are looking to emulate their favorite celebrities.

The new Blue Apron x Chrissy is a combination of these two aspects. While fans can go to Teigen’s cookbooks, the meal kit service simplifies the process.

From June 4 through July 9, anyone can order these special menus. Call it the summer of Teigen, these six recipes are perfect for the warm, summer months. Packed with bold flavor yet still approachable, the Teign menus will add a punch of flavor to your summer.

"The six Blue Apron x Chrissy recipes are:• Week of June 4, 2018: Garlic & Soy-Glazed Shrimp with Charred Broccoli & Hot Green Pepper Sauce• Week of June 11, 2018: Sesame Chicken Noodles with Bok Choy• Week of June 18, 2018: Chinese Chicken Salad with Crispy Wontons• Week of June 25, 2018: Chicken Lettuce Cups with Sweet Peppers, Mushrooms, & Jasmine Rice• Week of July 2, 2018: Chipotle-Lime Chicken Fajitas with Mushrooms, Monterey Jack, & Crema• Week of July 9, 2018: Pork Banh Mi Sandwiches with Pickled Cucumbers & Carrots"

The two recipes that I can’t wait to try are the garlic & soy-glazed shrimp and the pork banh mi. For the shrimp recipe, I’m excited to see the umami flavor come through with the shrimp. The charred broccoli sounds like a nice textural component to the dish.

Also, a banh mi is one of my favorite sandwiches. The key to this recipe will be the bread. A great banh mi sandwich requires the perfect bread.
