This is the fourth installment of The Tasting Team series featuring Chef’d staff and some of their favorite dishes.
Elizabeth, the youngest member of team Chef’d, is a lover of all things food. At her alma mater, USC, she led a chapter of Spoon University, a nationwide club for college students to share their love of food. After just a year of holding the position of Business Director at the USC chapter of Spoon University, she knew that she belonged in this industry. Shortly after graduation, Elizabeth found her way into the Chef’d headquarters in the hopes of finding an internship, and when she left, she walked out with a full-time position as our Spoon University Management Consultant. She spearheaded our partnership with the company, assisting in the creation of the first college student friendly meal kit, and continues to bring innovative ideas to the Business Development team.
Here Are a Few of Elizabeth’s Recommendations
“Oh my god, I love this dish. It’s aromatic and healthy. I’ve never cooked with coconut milk and rice so that was a fun skill to learn. I’ve cooked this dish for my mom and for friends visiting—and, of course, for myself a few times.”
“This is my favorite date night dish. It was so good. The crust on the steak and the chimichurri makes for a perfect man-friendly-dish. It’s a perfect dish for a man to cook...for me.”
“I always order the four serving fish tacos. I cooked this with a bunch of my friends during the summertime for a girls-night-in. We ate outside, and all got to cook it together. It was such a fun group experience.”
“The Shrimp Farro Bowl makes for good leftovers. I live alone, and when I’m cooking, I like to portion meals for the next day. I just order the two serving so I can make some for dinner, and bring the rest to work—it’s so good the next day.“
The New York Times Cooking Thanksgiving Feast
“This Thanksgiving, I hosted Friendsgiving. All of my friends came over and we cooked the full turkey and a bunch of sides. It was kind of chaotic because we’re all new to cooking, and we were all running around, but it was a good experience and a lot of fun—and it came out so good!”
