Meet Kristina, our meat and poultry merchant looking to cure her food fomo.
What do you love about working at FD?
I love the passion that everyone has for their products, and that I’m constantly being challenged and learning. Oh, right, and that tiny perk of getting to sample all sorts of amazing food!
What makes a great product in your area of expertise?
Meat that is raised right by farmers who are extremely knowledgeable about best practices. This means they raise and care for the animals, environment, and soil in a responsible, regenerative, humane way. Meat raised this way will not only taste better, but also be better for you and our planet.
If we looked in your fridge, we’d find…
It varies by the week as I cook a lot at home and love trying new things. But I always have Just FreshDirect Organic Milk, goat cheese, pickled red onions, spinach, KeVita ginger kombucha, and whole milk yogurt.
The food emoji you use the most is…
I always send birthday cake emojis for, you guessed it, birthdays!
Describe your perfect brunch.
Ideally it’s with people I adore, first and foremost. Then if I could somehow magically manage to try everything on the menu, that would be the perfect cure for my food fomo.
Which three celebrities (dead or alive), would you invite to your fantasy dinner party? And what would be on the menu?
The answer to this question changes each time you ask me, but I would love to have a meal with Stephen Colbert, Mindy Kaling, and Jon Stewart. I love funny, smart people, and they seem like they would have a great time together. For the meal, we would go to Fish Market in Reykjavik, Iceland. The nine-course tasting menu there was one of the best meals of my life!
If you could only eat cuisine from one country for the rest of your life, which country would it be and why?
Fresh, healthy, brightly flavored Mexican food followed closely by Thai. I could eat that lime-cilantro-chili combo in a million ways.
When you’re not FreshDirecting, you’re…
When I’m not getting my butt kicked at the gym or cooking dinner for my family at home, I’m feverishly trying to check off my never-ending bucket list of restaurants, countries, and new experiences I MUST explore.
