Blue Apron Partners with Chef Sam Kass to Bring His Flexible Cooking Approach to Kitchens Around the Country

NEW YORK — Blue Apron (NYSE:APRN) is partnering with former White House Senior Policy Advisor and Chef, Sam Kass, to bring his flexible and non-prescriptive cooking approach to kitchens around the country. Available to order now, the Blue Apron x Chef Sam Kass menu features high-quality ingredients and customizable recipes, crafted for adaptability and balance.

“Throughout my career, I have seen the benefits that nutritious, whole foods and a variety of lean proteins, fresh produce and whole grains can have,” said Chef Sam Kass. “In partnership with Blue Apron, we wanted to highlight simple steps that can help make a big difference in your overall health and lifestyle. We’ve created easy-to-replicate, customizable recipes to show that delicious food, packed with flavor, can be accessible and uncomplicated.”

Created in partnership with Blue Apron’s team of culinary and nutrition experts, this collaborative menu will allow customers to experience recipes that are fundamental building blocks in the kitchen, so they can learn, grow and develop lifelong skills. The Blue Apron x Chef Sam Kass recipes are also customizable by choosing between two protein options to allow customers to personalize their recipes according to their preferences. For additional variety, Chef Sam Kass created three Add-ons, an easy way to add an appetizer or side dish to your box to further create a well-rounded meal.

“Cooking with fresh ingredients can have a positive impact on one’s life, from participating in the cooking process to the selection of a recipe and its components,” said John Adler, Blue Apron’s Vice President of Culinary. “When we designed these recipes with Chef Sam Kass, we wanted to empower our customers to cook more by giving them access to high-quality ingredients with the flexibility to choose proteins they want to include in their recipes and adding an appetizer or side dish to their meal.”

On September 14, Blue Apron is hosting a free, live virtual cooking class with Chef Sam Kass in support of Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), to help raise awareness and funds for their recent initiative, Pass the Love w/ Waffles + Mochi.
