Tech Day – Review of #Plated Wearing #GoogleGlass

I met the owners of Plated at Blogher ’13 in Chicago.  At their booth, I sampled some of their food and was truly impressed.  The concept was intriguing to me.  You go online to www.Plated.com and select the dish or dishes that you would like to serve your family.  You place the order and within a few days, a box is delivered to your home with all the ingredients you need to prepare a restaurant style dish.

At the booth, the owners offered me a code to try it out at home. I had a few concerns —

  • I don’t know how to cook;
  • I get home late and to start preparing something is a hassle;
  • Will I have time to make a nice dish without it being too late and too difficult to make?

The owners sent me a followed up email. So, I decided to give it a try.  I ordered Chicken Piccata with Penne and Snow Peas.  The website told me it would be here the following Tuesday.

When I opened the box, the food was fresh and looked delicious.

I found it very stressful trying to cook everything at the same time.  But in the end, it was truly incredible.  My family loved it.

      It was really cool. I was amazed that it was so easy to make. I can’t say it wasn’t stressful, but it wasn’t difficult and tasted like fine dining. Thanks!
