CrateChef – Ali Slagle Box Giveaway

Enter our US giveaway to win a CrateChef box curated by Ali Slagle. We shared a few promotions over the years about CrateChef, see Sunny-Side Up and A Common Table.

I have a subscription to CrateChef which ships six chef-inspired boxes a year – one every other month. I was really excited for April/June’s selection which featured Ali Slagle’s new book I Dream of Dinner (So You Don’t Have To): Low-Effort, High-Reward Recipes. My box was delivered by my local post office to someone else which was not the company’s fault. I reached out to CrateChef to make sure they put one box aside for me if the post office couldn’t find my shipment. Luckily, the following day the box showed up and CrateChef suggested doing a promotion for our members again because it had been a while!

The Ali Slagle box includes: a signed copy of the book (I love this book); Joyce Chen Original “Unlimited” Scissors; Mishima Red Shiso Furikake Seasoning; Mekhala red curry paste; Rummo Bucatini Pasta; and Sing Kung Corp Roast Rice Powder.

Ali’s cookbook shares over 200 ingenious recipes that make suppertime a snap every night, from the New York Times recipe columnist. These are quick but flavor-filled dishes that will satisfy everyone around the table. Recipes in the book include Noodles with juicy fruits & peanuts; Fresh corn polenta with lime butter; BLT stir-fry (the T stands for tofu); Pasta with rosemary-fried walnuts; and Sticky chicken with pickled vegetables. Our gives you a look inside and features six recipes you can try now.

I have yet to be disappointed by a Crate Chef shipment and I’m particularly thrilled when a copy of the book is included (which has been the case for the last several crates).

This particular box would be a perfect gift for Mother’s Day (it might not get there in time) but you can print a photo of the content and tell mom it is on the way!). Learn more about CrateChef and sign up their emails at the bottom of their website page so you’ll never miss an announcement of a new chef inspired box.

    I’m a fan of Pati Jinich so her box would tempt me. I see they did Advent calendars last year so I’ll be on the lookout for those this holiday season.

    I am interested in Jenn Davis’ box because I am in love with all things Southern cooking, but I have also been making so many of Ali Slagle’s recipes from Cooking at the New York Times, lately and I have loved every one of them. So I think I would like Ali’s box. Plus I make think I cook more Asian food than anything, and a lot of her recipes skew towards Asian, and that appeals to me.

    So many of my favorite people have boxes, but I think I would go for Chef Darren McGrady because the products are harder to find in the US.
