WoodSpoon a new food delivery service, which allows diners to order home-cooked meals from over 300 local partner home chefs throughout the five boroughs and New Jersey, has officially launched. Customers have the option to schedule an order, order on demand, or place catering and family-style orders. Last weekend, WoodSpoon hosted a two day food truck pop-up event (July 23 and July 24th) across from Bryant Park and in Columbus Circle. The food truck at Bryant Park featured a menu of pork and vegetable dumplings made by home chef Chunyen Huang, and mini schnitzel and sabich sandwiches made by Saar. The following day in Columbus Circle the menu consisted of cheese tequeños and tres leche desserts by Tequeño World and seaweed egg tofu skewers and black sesame pudding by Yuhe Su.
The Knockturnal had the opportunity to try out the delivery service in Brooklyn, in which a jerk chicken dinner prepared by Home Chef Kaschiev Hunter was ordered. The jerk chicken came with two pieces of dark meat chicken with a side of coconut rice and peas. The chicken as noted by Hunter is marinaded for two days then oven-baked and air-fried with a homemade jerk sauce added after cooking. As an added thank you bonus, the meal delivery came with a side of plantains and a mini apple cinnamon loaf. Hunter explains in his WoodSpoon profile that he was born and raised in Queens, New York, and his recipes are a blend of his mother’s recipes, his curiosity to try different flavors and to consume healthier West Indian dishes. In making his dishes healthier Chef Hunter noted that he exclusively uses olive oil in his recipes and a little butter.
