From well known names such as HelloFresh to organic, plant-based or chef-led options, we’ve tested out the best recipe box delivery services so you can find the perfect option for you. Read on for our full review of the Wild Radish recipe box subscription.
The Wild Radish chef-led recipe box subscription, launched in autumn 2020, is an upmarket recipe delivery option that brings seasonal ingredients from restaurant suppliers into your home, along with tips from some of the UK’s most influential chefs.
Choice: The stylish site is easy to navigate, with a very simple choice between a rotating meat, fish and vegetarian option, that include the likes of caramelised rabbit legs, steamed pollock or wild spring mushroom spelt crêpes. Deliveries are every fortnight and each box is created for two diners.
Occasion: These boxes are all about recreating restaurant-quality meals at home for a weekend treat or special occasion, complete with thoughtful extras. These might include fresh bread to bake and serve with tapenade, plus petits fours and herbal tea to finish. There’s the option of adding a bespoke wine match for an extra £15.
Quality: Ingredients come from restaurant suppliers, so fresh market produce is guaranteed. Portions are extremely generous, and each element of the dish (meat/fish, sides, sauce, dressing) is given the same attention. All ingredients are provided and portioned-out, and cooking instructions are thorough, with extra chefs tips to crisp up crackling, create the silkiest sauce and achieve the most tender veg.
Packaging and delivery: Deliveries are on Thursdays and use minimal packaging, with chilled ingredients kept in recyclable wool, loose veg in brown paper bags, and a few pots for sauces.
Value for money: Though at the top end of the price range, from £55 for two people, this is a restaurant-quality meal that’s designed to make an evening of it, and the little extras make it extra special.
