From April 16-May 21, Blue Apron customers can take their taste buds on a journey around the world, choosing from recipes that were inspired by local Airbnb Experiences hosts in Paris, Florence, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, and Shanghai. The recipes, which include Chicken Tinga Tostadas from Alberto Estua and Jorge Fitz in Mexico City, and Steak Frites from Monia Kashmire and Nicolas Derrstroff, two hosts in Paris, were designed in collaboration with some of the most highly rated culinary experts who host an experience on Airbnb.
"At its core, every Blue Apron meal experience brings an element of discovery to customers, whether we're introducing them to a new ingredient, teaching them a new cooking skill, or delighting them with new tastes and flavors," said Christine Fu, head of partnerships, Blue Apron. "We are thrilled to partner with Airbnb, where we have a unique opportunity to bring their expertise in local experiences together with our core product to teach our customers how to create meals from cities that are influencing food culture around the world today."
"Sharing culinary traditions is such a powerful form of cultural exchange. There's nothing better than people coming together in local communities, breaking bread and making friends over cooking - or eating - a meal," said Joe Zadeh, VP of Airbnb Trips. "Since launching Airbnb Experiences, food has become one of the most booked categories on our platform. Given how much these activities mean to people when they travel, it's wonderful to see Blue Apron bringing Airbnb Experience-inspired recipes back to the home!"
The recipes, which will be available on Blue Apron's Two-Person and Family Plan offerings beginning April 16, 2018, for six weeks include:
