Every man should cook, but it’d be nice to have a guide. A culinary sensei who dictates measurements, imparts technique, and has a name other than Uncle Ben.

That’s why there’s Plated, a ready-to-cook gourmet ingredient delivery service, launching today in New York.

To put it simply (because this is delightfully simple), Plated mails you ingredients and recipes developed by chefs from the hautest of haunts — e.g., Bouley, Gramercy Tavern, and Red Rooster.

To get slicing, simply sign up online and choose how many meals you want weekly.

Once a week, a box of healthy, fresh ingredients arrives at your door. Everything’s pre-portioned. No guess-measuring, no waste. And step-by-step recipe cards mean you’ll knock out chorizo tacos with Mexican street corn or broiled eggplant parm in under 30 minutes.

Plated also delivers one-off “Dinner Party Boxes,” including a special kit just for Thanksgiving.

Just specify the number of guests and you’ll receive brined turkey stuffed with aromatics, plus sides like slow-cooked sausage stuffing and mashed sweet potatoes with pecan-bacon crumble.

Mmm bacon. Give thanks.

Note: Turkey Day boxes have to be ordered by 11/14, so get ‘em now.
