I got this as a birthday gift from my brothers, and I'm pretty pleased with my first box. It was espelette pepper, maldon sea salt, and squid ink pasta, with a silicone plate grabber. Was it just salt, pepper, and pasta? Reader, it was. Was it FANCY salt, pepper, and pasta? You betcha! Stuff i would never buy for myself and not worth wasting on my basic-taste kids, but terrific for date night with the wife. I made sous vide cod wrapped in wild garlic and served it over Cacio e Pepe. Sounds very fancy! Wife made yummy noises and I got many upthumbs on Facebook and hearts on IG, which feed my already rather large ego.
Still got half the pasta so maybe I'll make the recipe included in the box. I've already got 4 grabber thingies, but whatever. I'm happy and my brothers are happy and that's all that matters. Looking forward to next month's box!
I guess for the price it is adequate. Was a Father's Day gift, dad called to say "I hope you didn't pay a lot for this, there's not much here..." Next time will check details more closely, he sounds disappointed, and he is an avid home-chef.
This is an interesting box of ingredients and I look forward to trying them
