While the holiday food extravaganza is on full display, a new offering is waiting to be ordered on Blue Apron. The new Blue Apron Fireside Feast celebrates the beauty of French cuisine in a manageable way. From the person who wants to channel their inner Julia Child to satisfying a craving for classic cuisine, this box is a must order.

Many people have come to appreciate the convenience of Blue Apron. From the families who have had kids fall in love with flavor thanks to Disney inspired meals to the aspiring cook gaining confidence behind the stove, these curated meals make home cooking a breeze.

In the latest offering, Blue Apron Fireside Feast, the flavors bring a cozy, comforting tone to the table. Inspired by traditional French fare, the box is perfect for a dinner party or even a romantic evening.

As John Adler, Blue Apron’s Vice President of Culinary said, “Our culinary team created an express lane to a show stopping cassoulet. In a typical restaurant setting, this menu would require 50 plus hours of preparation time and advanced culinary skills. We’ve created an impressive menu with only one hour of estimated active cooking time that’s designed to be easy for customers of all skill levels to prepare.”

Included in the Blue Apron Fireside Feast are the following:

  • Duck Confit Cassoulet with Pork Belly, Beans & Thyme Breadcrumbs
  • Parmesan & Garlic-Herb Bread
  • Orange & Pistachio Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette
  • Chocolate Chip & Almond Biscotti with Peppermint-Chocolate Dipping Sauce

Looking at this list, many home cooks would not dare try to cook Duck Confit at home. The slowly cooked luscious duck is a flavor that many people will never forget. Hopefully, this meal will encourage some cooks to expand their cooking horizons and be willing to take the challenge of a more elevated dish.

In addition, this Blue Apron offering seems to mimic the food. That brand predicts that French cuisine will have a moment in 2023. Although Blue Apron is offering a well-curated option, it could spark a bigger food conversation after that one meal.

The Blue Apron Fireside Feast is available from January 2 through February. For someone looking for a Valentine’s Day that will impress, this seasonal offering might be the answer. With a bottle or two of wine, it will be an evening to remember.
