Blue Apron partners with James Beard Awards winner

Written by James Shea

Blue Apron is partnering with James Beard Awards winner Edouardo Jordan to create speciality meal kits. The first offering will be Jordan’s Thanksgiving meal.

“This menu is a reflection of my roots, my stories and my history,” Jordan said. “Inspired by my Southern roots and the cuisine of the African diaspora, I created these simple recipes, in collaboration with Blue Apron’s culinary team, to encourage home cooks to have fun in the kitchen and celebrate over a great meal.”

The kit is designed to serve between six to eight and includes:

  • Spice Roasted Turkey Breast
  • Pimento Cheese Mashed Potatoes
  • Sage Gravy & Cranberry Relish
  • Roasted Carrots in Ginger Syrup
  • Mushroom-Braised Collard Greens
  • Skillet Poblano Cornbread
  • Peanut-Glazed Apple & Persimmon Crumble with Maple Syrup & Quatre Épices

“We are excited to partner with Chef Jordan to create a holiday meal that celebrates the unique story he brings to American cooking,” Blue Apron Vice President of Culinary John Adler. “Through these recipes, we hope to introduce the history behind Chef Jordan’s approach to cooking, as well as his use of unique flavors and ingredients, like freekeh and watermelon radish, that many customers may not get a chance to cook with otherwise.”

The additional Jordan recipes will be available following Thanksgiving and will include:

  • Dukkah-Spiced Steaks & Freekeh with Brussels Sprouts, Figs & Marinated Radish (Nov. 30)
  • Roasted Peanut Chicken with Cilantro-Dressed Pasta & Garlicky Green Beans (Dec. 7)
  • Crispy Skin Salmon with Risotto-Style Farro & Mushrooms (Dec. 14)
