I purchased this as a gift for my son, as he is curious about other cultures and loves to cook. Turns out he invited me to make the meal with him. Not only did we enjoy trying the new foods we have never had before, but we also got in some priceless mother/son time that I will be forever grateful for. The food was absolutely delicious and so easy to make. My son has convinced me that we should add the tea kits in on the next two kits. Love the shelf stable aspect and that you let people choose their kits! Keep doing what you are doing because you rock at it!
