How many of you have found yourself going into the kitchen to make an awesome meal -- only to realize you're missing a key ingredient! Better yet, how many of you have found yourself craving something really tasty but you don't have time to go to the store to get what you need to make it happen? Here's another common situation -- You buy all of these exotic ingredients to make this dish you've been dying to make but after it's done, you're stuck with leftover ingredients and seasonings you'll probably never use again.
I've been there too...
However, I won't have those problems anymore thanks to Chef Ami. Chef Ami is a local, meal subscription service that was founded in Gainesville, FL. Lucky for me, brothers Elijah and Matt -- the masterminds behind Chef Ami, decided to bring their talents farther south to the Tampa Bay Region. There's just something about family-owned businesses that warms my heart and now, my tummy :-)
Chef Ami Recipes
You may be wondering what sets Chef Ami apart from other meal subscription services. Well, other than the fact that this particular company sows right back into the local community, Elijah and Matt pride themselves in being very intentional with how the source their ingredients. They work with local farmers to provide the best possible quality of meats, produce, and other key ingredients needed to create their awesome meals. Other than being local, Chef Ami does also require their farmers' products to be organic and of excellent quality in order to meet their standards. After all, who wouldn't want quality ingredients that reflect what they're paying for?
Let's talk ease.
These Chef Ami recipes are literally some of the easiest recipes I've ever followed -- ever! Aside from getting everything I need to feel like a top chef, the instructions are outlined in a way that really make cooking fun and easy. Many times when I'm cooking, I just make up things as I go along...and that's usually because I have my go-to recipes that I consider to be "safe". However, I've never really sat and thought about the timing of the different parts of these meals.
Chef Ami Island Pork Tenderloin Prep
When I decided to lead off with the highly recommended Island Pork Tenderloin, I was excited to just dive on in. I soon realized after flipping the card that there was an order to follow when constructing this amazing meal. Everything was outlined from when to preheat the oven to when I should start on the rice -- Amazing! You'll be able to see my process from start to finish when you watch the video below.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed being able to channel my inner, amateur chef with my very first Chef Ami meal box. The recipes were easy to follow and my family enjoyed every bite.
The best part about Chef Ami is that for every 2-person box you purchase, they will donate 6 meals to Tampa Bay families in need. That's how you sustain a community folks!
