A recent article in the Seattle Times investigated the rise in so called “meal-kit” companies such as Blue Apron, which deliver ingredients and instructions to your doorstep to make fancy dishes in your own home.

These meal-kit companies have gotten rave reviews from places such as the New York Times, and many millennials see this as an opportunity to hone their  cooking skills.

Do you appreciate this way of empowering people to cook their own food as a divergence from the rise of ready-made meals and frozen foods? Or do you think that these kits are made for suckers who aren’t willing to go to a grocery store themselves.
