What's Unique About Martha & Marley Spoon?

It was only a matter of time before a celebrity food personality was going to weigh in on the meal kit market. In 2016 this came to be when domestic goddess and lifestyle mogul Martha Stewart joined forces with German food company Marley Spoon to launch their eponymous Martha & Marley Spoon meal kit delivery service.

If you’re a fan of Stewart’s cooking, Martha & Marley Spoon will make you feel like a kid in a candy store. Straight from her cookbooks, you get to choose from at least 20 colorful, signature recipes each week. While this amount of choice is clearly fantastic, for those of us who struggle to make difficult decisions, it can be overwhelming to finalize a box. The meals are divided into different categories including customer favorites, healthy options, and kid-friendly dishes. Additional specialty diets include gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, low-calorie, and low-carb. 

The vast majority of the recipes revolve around meat or seafood, with only 6 vegetarian and a measly 1 vegan option. But what makes this service special is that the protein isn’t always the star of the show. Indeed many recipes have really unique and flavorful side dishes. Grilled steak for instance comes with a tomato-ciabatta panzanella salad; while mustard-glazed salmon is paired with a delightful side of summer corn, snap peas and tomatoes with a mustard vinaigrette and dill weed.
