If you know Fresh Prep, then you know we love food and supporting local businesses. That’s why, for a limited time, we’ve partnered with Anh and Chi, an award-winning Vietnamese restaurant to bring you two limited-time meal kits. Located in the heart of Vancouver and owned by brother and sister duo, Amélie and Vincent Nguyễn, Anh and Chi serves up authentic Vietnamese cuisine elevated with creative flavours and fresh ingredients.
We know that recreating your favourite Vietnamese dishes at home can be daunting. This Chef Collab with Anh and Chi will help up your cooking game by simplifying the steps and providing you with all the ingredients you’ll need in one meal kit.
Limited-time chef collaboration with Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant
For the next 12 weeks (running Jan 14th to Apr 1st), BC customers can get their hands on these two special meal kits created by the Anh and Chi team along with our Fresh Prep recipe developers.
Bring the flavours of Anh and Chi to your kitchen with the classic Lemongrass Chicken Vermicelli Bowl (includes 1 bottle of Me’s Chili Fish Sauce) or order the vegan-friendly Lemongrass Tofu Vermicelli Bowl (includes 1 bottle of Me’s Sweet Soy Sauce). Just like our standard meal kits, we provide a detailed step-by-step recipe card and all the necessary ingredients. Exclusive to this chef collab, each meal kit comes with a full-size bottle of Me’s sauce, so you can enhance your home cooking beyond this dish.
In just 30 minutes or less, you can prepare one of Anh and Chi’s most popular dishes right from your own kitchen. Don’t miss out! Sign up for Fresh Prep and see why these dishes are local favourites.
Fresh Prep x Anh and Chi simplifies authentic Vietnamese cooking
As a B Corporation, Fresh Prep is dedicated to creating a positive impact in the communities we serve. Anh and Chi co-founder, Amélie, also shares this passion for community, which was key in developing this collaboration. Here’s what Amélie had to say about partnering with Fresh Prep:
Why did you want to partner with Fresh Prep?
“We love Fresh Prep’s brand and concept. Many of us juggle school, work, and our families and Fresh Prep has made healthy and delicious meals so accessible. Anh and Chi would love for some of our flavours and favourites to make it to more homes, so a collaboration with Fresh Prep who already delivers to so many homes felt perfect!”
Tell us about the Fresh Prep x Anh and Chi items?
- Anh and Chi’s Lemongrass Chicken Vermicelli Bowl with Mẹ’s Chilli Fish sauce.
- Anh and Chi’s Lemongrass Tofu Vermicelli Bowls with plant-based Mẹ’s Sweet Soy sauce.
“Our vermicelli bowls are like gourmet and hearty salads, rich with a protein of your choice, exciting textures and flavours, especially notes of lemongrass and garlic.
For people who love extra flavour, we included some delicious authentic sauces. The sauce options are either Mẹ’s (our mom’s) chilli fish and sweet soy that every home cook will quickly discover that they cannot live without.”
What was your inspiration behind the meal kits?
“Many people are searching for ways to add vegetables to their lives without sacrificing time and taste. We picked one of Anh and Chi’s classics — our lemongrass vermicelli bowls that are well-rounded in flavour and texture. We also wanted a dish that meant something special, and the long noodles that are central to the bowls, signify longevity to wish our new Fresh Prep friends good health with friends and family.”
How did you go about creating these kits so they are easy for people to make at home?
“Vietnamese cuisine generally requires a lot of little ingredients, including special sauces, marinades and garnishes. But Fresh Prep x Anh and Chi has simplified the process by including everything you will need and a fool-proof recipe that you can create in less than 30 minutes! Fresh Prep preps all the ingredients and Anh and Chi added a beautiful bottle of our sauce that will be used as both the marinade and dressing.”
Supporting local restaurants and communities
Partnering with Anh and Chi was a no-brainer. Fresh Prep co-founder, Becky Brauer has been a longtime fan of Anh and Chi’s delicious food and is thrilled with our latest chef collab.
“We get excited about working with local brands who value using high-quality ingredients and providing a great experience to their customers.” says Becky, “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Amélie and Vincent from Anh and Chi because they also value locally sourced foods, sustainability and being active in the community.”
Show your support for one of the best restaurants in Vancouver with this amazing meal kit. We cannot be more excited to help our customers recreate these restaurant-quality dishes from the comfort of their own kitchens.
