HelloFresh: Grocery & Recipes Delivered to your Door

If like me you sometimes run out of inspiration in the kitchen, you may want to take a look at HelloFresh. HelloFresh is a subscription service that provides weekly deliveries of recipes and ingredients to time-poor Aussies in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne who love the joy of a home-cooked, healthy meal. Launched in Australia in early 2012, the service boasts recipes put together by in-house chefs, plus the exact fresh ingredients delivered weekly to your door, taking all the hassle of meal-planning and supermarket trips, and leaving subscribers with the fun stuff – fuss free cooking and of course, eating!

I've tried their "3 meals a week for two" plan ($64) and thought you may like to know what it was like.

What did I receive?


I loved the fresh herbs: mint, parsley and fennel! All of the vegetables looked very fresh, the red onions were HUGE. I received about 365 g of meat (lamb) and also 2 large pieces of fresh fish (ling), a small jar of capers imported from Spain, two cans of lentils, a pack of haloumi imported from Cyprus. I was also very impressed to see that HelloFresh had even thought of including spices (cumin), dried herbs (oregano), and even ready-to-use fresh garlic (already peeled)!

The delivery came with a welcome booklet as well as recipes cards with simple clear instructions to follow.

What did I cook and eat

Fish en Papillote -  with a caper lemon butter sauce

Haloumi  & lentil salad (my favourite!)
Also made Mediterranean lamb skewers with aubergines and lentils
