Picture this: it’s 7pm after a stressful day at work and you’re running low on groceries. You could order take outs, but the idea of tearing open and eating from yet another a plastic container is losing its appeal fast. You reach for your fridge door to survey its barren contents for the umpteenth time, when a lightbulb (the one in your head — not the one that’s illuminated every time the fridge door opens) flares up: there’s got to be a quick & easy fix for busy individuals who want great tasting food, all from the comfort of your own home.
Get ready to be acquainted with meal kits, a culinary revolution that allows you to cook delicious, restaurant-quality meals by yourself. Meal kits are a food service that provides pre-portioned and prepped ingredients and recipes to food lovers. Slated to have originated from Sweden in 2007, meal kits were created with a single objective in mind — convenience.
When you order a meal kits, all the essential ingredients required to whip a quick & easy mouthwatering meal on your own are delivered right to your doorstep. Meal kits comprise pre-packaged, already perfectly portioned ingredients (ie. the exact amount you’ll need), saving you trips to the supermarket and prep time.
The popularity of meal kits have grown in leaps and bounds since its early Scandinavian days, spawning an entire host of meal kit providers across the globe and stoking the collective appetites of a rapidly growing fanbase. Although still a relatively new concept in Malaysia, there are some key players in the local market, including SedapTV’s very own meal kits.
Not feeling too confident about your cooking skills? Fret not, for meal kits arrive with simple, step-by-step instructions and video guides (in the case of SedapTV) that are easy to follow, hence levelling the playing field for wannabe chefs and seasoned kitchen warriors alike. As you roll up your sleeves and start cooking, consider this other reason behind the enduring popularity of meal kits: they’re an opportunity to try out exciting new recipes you might be hesitant about experimenting with on your own. You also don’t need to worry about wasting large quantities of vegetables or bottles of sauces and spices that you may never use again, as you receive exactly what you need. Simply put, you don’t have to be concerned about food wastage with meal kits.
Cooking can be costly. The last thing you want after a stressful day is to end up with an inedible mess in a dirty kitchen, nursing hunger pangs. Tapping into meal kits minimise the risk of messing up, so you can confidently blow a chef’s kiss when you unveil your successful dish. In addition to ensuring delectable dishes each time, meal kits can serve as training wheels for people who want to learn how to cook, but aren’t keen to sign up for cooking classes. As you build confidence with quick and easy dishes and familiarise yourself in the kitchen, you’ll gain a better understanding of flavours and ingredients, allowing you to recreate family favourites and even test out new ones that are definitely “sedap”!
