Annnnddd we're back. Due to mass amounts of holiday leftovers and a winter liquid diet, the meal kit delivery experiment took an unplanned brief hiatus. Peach Dish is Georgia based company pumping out boxes for all those defunct men and women out there without the time, energy to look up recipes, plan and shop around for all the needed ingredients. Also, I felt my good deed for the month of February was to give back to the city of Atlanta and state of Georgia after my beloved Patriots and man crush everyday, TB12, ripped their hearts out in 'The Big Game'.
Website & Ease of Ordering:
It's 2017 people, if your website looks anything but stellar or harder to navigate than the female anatomy, it will stand out in the worst of ways. Just like in the world of app dating, if you look all sloppy and difficult not many people are swiping right or in this case buying what you're selling.
Peach Dish is more than a delivery service, there is a fairly substantial specialty store which carries an array of brands you may not be able to find at your local store. There is also a blog but let be real, who reads those.
As far as ordering goes this is a more a la cart type of operation, the ingredients are clearly labeled and you can order as much or as little as you want of each course.

There isn't much for meal plans here, with the one exception you can subscribe for free delivery. In reality this 'subscription' doesn't mean much considering you can cancel at no cost and schedule just as frequently as you desire. Truthfully this appears to be a money grab at the forgetful.
You can set your preferences and there are enough options for the picky eaters who lack proper stomach enzymes and feel a vegan diet is a good idea.

Delivery Time & Packaging
We have colorful mesh satchels people! Each meal is packaged into corresponding mesh bags that have all the ingredients packed away with the meat in a separate back to avoid cross contamination. The mesh bags also double as a strainer/sifter which I can appreciate as someone who loathes having too many kitchen gadgets.
They also leave you a nice little letter that explains if you lose a recipe card, or in my case not given one (which is the only reason for the less than perfect score) and that each box comes with a 'treat(s)'. My 'treat(s)' were two oranges I never ate but it's hard to get let down by something you never knew was coming.

The dessert was something I figured I would try considering my love for everything croissant, shockingly it might have ended up being the best thing in the box. All of the dinners were very good but I am a tough grader. The recipe cards were well designed but I ignored some of the steps and did things my own way. There was nothing wrong with the directions but more of a problem with my cunty attitude towards authority.

This shit ain't cheap. At $12.50 per meal it is still cheaper than if it was cooked by a professional at an overpriced restaurant with fanciful decorations.

Overall this is the best box I have reviewed yet, this doesn't seem like another copycat product but something different from the floating trash island in the sea of meal kit delivery services. I would recommend trying this at least once because I will definitely be giving it another shot.
