    How are we suppose to know? 

    Its a mystery box, so in other words everything we list would be hypothetical...

    Is there anything you know thats in the box aside from the proteins??

    Hi, im not really sure sorry, but i would assume Autumn and Winter vegetables; beetroots, radish,spinach cauliflower, cabbage, potato, sweet potatoes etc.. 

    Also cream, wine, vinegar's.

    Hypothetical ideas would still be welcomed.

    Thanks

    If you know you have salmon and beef, decide how you want to prepare them with 2 or 3 alternate ideas.

    Then have a list of possible starches and their preparations that fall under the same category.

    Same with veg and sauce, garnish etc.

    For instance, for root veg, think of a preparation that would work for most root veg.

    Organize your preparations to keep all of the variables from rolling around in your head too much.
