NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Apron (NYSE: APRN) is partnering with Chef Edouardo Jordan, the winner of two James Beard Awards and chef-owner of acclaimed restaurants JuneBaby, Salare and Lucinda Grain Bar, to create an exclusive offering for its customers.
Starting with Jordan's take on Thanksgiving, Blue Apron x Chef Edouardo Jordan meals celebrate the joy of cooking with each recipe bridging his rich family history and modern culinary perspective.
"This menu is a reflection of my roots, my stories and my history," said Chef Edouardo Jordan. "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."
As one of Seattle's most recognized chefs, Jordan's recipes will highlight the variety, discovery and inspiration from his restaurants, and bring his unique flavors and ingredients to kitchens around the country. Blue Apron x Chef Edouardo Jordan recipes will be available beginning on November 23, starting with a Thanksgiving menu and followed by additional recipes for three consecutive weeks.
"We are excited to partner with Chef Jordan to create a holiday meal that celebrates the unique story he brings to American cooking," said John Adler, Vice President of Culinary at Blue Apron. "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."
Serving between six to eight people, home cooks can order the Thanksgiving feast, which 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

To complete the meal, these Thanksgiving offerings can be paired with Blue Apron's chef-curated Holiday Feast Favorites wine bundle.
