Not too long ago, organic and biodynamic wines were a niche within the world of drinks. But recently, production and consumer interest in this category has grown rapidly, especially as the environmental impact of what we consume becomes front of mind. These wines have also outgrown their reputation for being unbalanced or difficult. Nowadays, many offer refinement and easy drinkability.
FreshDirect Wine & Spirits, recently introduced new bottles that represent some of the best values and greatest innovators in organic and biodynamic winemaking. But before we take a look at them, let’s establish what we’re talking about when we talk about organic wine:…
Get on board the sheet pan cooking bandwagon with this no-fuss recipe that’s chock full of veggies and omega-3-rich salmon. You can also try this method with different veggies or another protein since the chili maple glaze works brilliantly on just about anything.
We recently met up with Haven’s Kitchen founder Alison Cayne at the gorgeous renovated carriage house in Manhattan where you’ll find the Haven’s Kitchen cooking school, café, and event space. Alison kindly took some time to answer our questions about how she founded the business and what led to the creation of the Haven’s Kitchen sauces available on FreshDirect—with Thanksgiving coming up we were curious about her upcoming holiday feasting plans too! Read the interview below.
Bonus: there’s a recipe for sesame chicken featuring the Haven’s Kitchen Gingery Miso at the end.
A traditional Thanksgiving dinner is usually not the time to get super creative with the menu—you know a relative is going to raise a fuss if you don’t use the family heirloom stuffing recipe that you have every. single. year. But Friendsgiving? That’s where you can come as you are, and so too can your food.
Friendsgiving is a time to create new rituals. It doesn’t even have to be on the fourth Thursday in November. You can have it earlier in the month and use it as a test run for the actual holiday. Or why not have one at the office—you spend enough time with your workmates that they’re like family, anyway. The only real rule is that Friendsgiving is best when it’s a potluck, because real friends always share their food.
With the holidays and plenty of opportunities to entertain coming up, it’s a good time to think about what you’ll be putting on your cheese boards. A platter with a variety of well-chosen bites is an easy, reliable standby for hors d’oeuvres hour and never fails to impress guests.
Our cheesemonger put together this list of the top new selections in the FreshDirect Cheese Shop. These cheeses come from some of the most exciting artisan cheesemakers in Europe and in addition to being delicious, they’ll make your board stand out from the rest.
Get ready for the greatest food holiday with Thanksgiving recipes for every course.

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away, so now’s the time to start thinking about the main event: turkey! We’ve put together this turkey buying guide to help you choose the bird that’s best for your table.
You can reserve your fresh Thanksgiving turkey from FreshDirect beginning November 7th. A limited selection of fresh and frozen turkeys is available now for ordering.
What Size Bird Should I Buy?
As a general rule, we recommend buying one pound of turkey per person. But if you want lots of leftovers or know there will be big appetites, then up that to a pound-and-a-half per person. Check out our size guide chart below for quick reference:
Vegetable lovers, listen up: FreshDirect is excited to launch a new partnership this fall with Row 7, a groundbreaking seed company born from collaboration between plant breeders and chefs. Row 7 was founded on the premise of developing ingredients for flavor, rather than simply for uniformity and yield. Produce grown from their seeds is, simply put, some of the most incredible that we’ve ever tried.
Row 7’s story begins a few years back, when chef Dan Barber of Blue Hill restaurants dared vegetable breeder Michael Mazourek to build a better butternut squash. For Michael, it was the first time that someone had asked him to breed for flavor. For Dan, it was the discovery of a new kind of recipe—one that begins with the seed.
