Chefs Plate is HelloFresh’s Canadian division and it offers all of the same benefits as its mother company, including flexible delivery options, easy-to-make, delectable meal options, and fresh ingredients delivered straight to your door.

What’s Unique About Chefs Plate?

There’s plenty of information to be found, clear and upfront pricing information, and mouth-watering close-ups of all of the scrumptious meals you could learn how to make using the Chefs Plate platform. In addition, here’s what we like about Chefs Plate:

  • Flexibility

Chefs Plate keeps orders and deliveries really simple. Sign up for a plan, place your order, and select your meals. Each week, you’ll get to choose different meals. But you can pause your plan at any point, or skip a week if you’re going to be away or don’t have a need for so many meals. We also like that Chefs Plate lets you cancel your plan without any hassle.

  • Good variety of meal options

Chefs Plate offers  15 different meal options every week to choose from. What’s more, we like how varied the menu options are. You don’t get the same type of food or cooking style with every dish. One week, you can try something from the Middle East, and the next week, opt for an American classic. A quick look at the weekly menu will reveal how eclectic this meal variety is.

  • Responsible

Chefs Plate does its best to do its part in keeping the world cleaner. For one thing, all ingredients are locally sourced. So, you’re getting fresher, more reliable produce, and you’re supporting local vendors at the same time. What’s more, all of Chefs Plate’s packaging is 100% recyclable.

How It Works

Chefs Plate works much like most meal kit delivery services. It consists of 3 basic stages:

  • Choose your plan.

Chefs Plate offers plans for 2 or 4 people with 2, 3, or 4 meals per person each week.

  • Enter your delivery information.

Put in your address and your payment information. What’s nice about Chefs Plate is that it lets you pick your delivery day (not available on Fridays and Saturdays) and allows you to enter specific delivery instructions.

  • Select your meals.

Chefs Plate offers a weekly rotation of meals. Every week, you'll have 15 new meals to choose from, ranging in flavour, culture, and styles. One week, you'll have a choice between turkey enchilada bakes, spicy Thai peanut pork noodles, and mushroom bibimbap bowl. Take what sounds enticing to you, and leave the rest.

It's all pretty simple. Meal kits come with everything that you need to make each meal. This includes all of the ingredients, the recipe, and step-by-step instruction cards. These are particularly helpful for newbie chefs who don’t know how to cook well. Meal kits are shipped with ice packs to keep ingredients fresh. Chefs Plate meals are generally ready to eat in 15-30 minutes.

Meal Options

Chefs Plate describes its meals as dinners, but in truth, you can serve these meals at any point in time during the day, depending on your dining preferences. The meals are a little heavier than your average breakfast, but we’re not judging. In terms of quality, the ingredients are all top-of-the-line, fresh, and shipped out right away to maintain that freshness.

Favourite Chefs Plate Meals

Chefs Plate has a wide variety of savoury dishes you can choose from. Here are 3 that we tried out and feel for hardcore:

Cost per serving: $8.49-$9.99

Pricing

Chefs Plate is not the cheapest meal kit delivery option, but it’s definitely not the most expensive one out there either. Starting from only $8.49 per serving, Chefs Plate makes a good option for people who want to include healthier eating habits a few times a week into their schedule. Here’s what you’ll pay for a weekly subscription:


2 people to feed
4 people to feed
2 Dinners per week
$45.96
$71.92
3 Dinners per week
$59.94
$107.88
4 Dinners per week
$79.92
$143.84

All meal plans ship free except the 2 people/2 dinners a week plan. So, if you are ordering anything more than 4 meals, it ships free. Plus, anything other than that plan boils down to $8.49 per serving. The 2 people/2 dinners per week plan is $9.99 per serving.

Weekly subscriptions will auto-renew unless you change your delivery schedule. The good news is that you can pause, skip, or even cancel Chefs Plate deliveries whenever you want. So, there are no long-term commitments to worry about.
