The Contra Kit

Made In Promise
New York chefs Fabián von Hauske Valtierra and Jeremiah Stone are the duo behind some of the Lower East Side's most delicious hotspots, including one of our favorite restaurants in the country: Contra. Known for its seasonally-inspired dishes, beautiful plating, and complex yet approachable cuisine, Contra has racked up a loyal following and a long list of awards — including a Michelin star. We've teamed up with Fabián and Jeremiah to introduce you to some of the flavors and styles you'd experience if you walked into Contra's intimate 25-seat dining room tonight.

Pair the shelf-stable ingredients in this box with the additional easy-to-find listed ingredients and Made In's 12" Blue Carbon Steel Frying Pan for a transportive meal and a chef-inspired cooking experience.

Kit Includes
  • 3 Contra Recipe Cards

  • O-Med Organic Finishing Olive Oil
  • Sanniti Pitted Castelvetrano Olives
  • 2x Shakhurbai Almonds
  • Red Boat Fish Sauce
  • Limited-Edition Mother of Pearl Tasting Spoon
Why This Kit?
This is your opportunity to be a Michelin-starred chef for a night and cook with some of the hard-to-source ingredients top chefs cook with. Learn how to cook the perfect steak, how to plate, how to take your beans to the next level, and more from this delicious recipe kit that's sure to impress.

We also have a package that includes our 12" Blue Carbon Steel Frying Pan, which is perfect for the steak recipe included in this kit (the recipe was actually designed around this specific pan). This pan is also a favorite of families due to its versatility: it's equally as capable at roasting a whole bird as it is frying up tempura or sauteing fajita vegetables.

I absolutely love this contra kit! The spoon is my favorite and I've used it for so much more than just the kit. I was able to make a great 3 course meal and will definitely be using the recipes again! Love this and hope you do more things like this in the future!
