On the latest season of Thrillist’s YouTube series "Send Foodz," viewers can get a taste of featured foods in the comfort of their own homes, thanks to a partnership with Goldbelly.
Throughout the season, which premiered on July 23, hosts Timothy DeLaGhetto and David So explore the cuisine of featured cities, including New Orleans, Philadelphia, Boston and Miami, highlighting regional favorites like BBQ, burgers and pies.
Usually, the duo can be seen catching food festivals across the U.S., but due to the pandemic, the show found this new way to connect audiences to food.
DeLaGhetto and So's selections each come from online marketplace Goldbelly, which viewers can then have shipped to their homes across the U.S.
Thrillist will publish curated menu selections for each restaurant.
The show will also explore how food triggers a person’s memories and experiences.
“At Thrillist, we’re all about connecting people with the most delicious food in every city,” stated Thrillist’s Chief Content Officer, Meghan Kirsch. “Given Goldbelly’s ability to curate and bring iconic restaurant meals to people around the country, it was a natural fit to partner with them to highlight their amazing offerings in our new season of Send Foodz.
"Since people can’t easily travel to their favorite cities right now, this partnership gives our audience a much needed dose of culinary nostalgia with the opportunity to get these iconic dishes delivered right to their doorstep,” she added.
In addition to the new partnership with Thrillist promoting regional cuisine, Goldbelly currently offers subscription boxes to support local restaurants in markets like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, New Orleans and Miami.
“Especially in today’s world, food has the incredible power to connect people with a favorite place, memory or experience, which many of us just don’t have access to right now,” stated Goldbelly founder-CEO Joe Ariel.
