Q: Is everything in this box 100% vegan? I want to order it as a gift for a couple I know that is getting married and who are strictly vegan. One of them is also gluten-free, but not all of the things inside have to be gluten-free. Asked by Leanne S., August 2019
Our boxes contain ZERO animal products, guaranteed by our own Chef Ellie
who specializes in plant-based cooking. Gluten may appear from time to time
if we include soy sauce or an ingredient that uses flour, though it's not
I have gifted out the yearly subscription to my Dads and they have loved all the items within! Customer Service was amazing and very helpful when I purchased a second yearly subscription which overlapped with the first subscription. Culinarie Kit contacted me to confirm if it was an accident or if i wanted to continue the subscription. I quickly responded i wanted to extend it since its such a great product. Definitely worth purchasing a box.
This is a follow up to my review last week; I received a kit with a broken jar of mustard. Thanks Ellie, I received the new jar today. Quick response and a very happy Culinaire customer!
I'm very sorry to hear your mustard was broken! We do our best to pack items securely but sometimes their ride to the destination is just a little too bumpy. I will reach out via e-mail to get you a replacement ASAP.
Love the spices and tools, always something interesting.
Very glad to hear you're enjoying your boxes. Happy cooking!
I basically make the same 3 dishes over and over. My wife is sick of it. This gave me some new recipes to try that I wouldn't even think to search for and a bunch of cool ingredients to use for them. Some stuff I'd never even heard of that makes you WANT to cook to try it out. The wife is happy with my new hobby, so I'm happy!
I loved my Culinarie Kit box! It's packaged beautifully and she has literally thought of everything to include. The recipes are easy to follow and a great way to try new dishes. If you're new to cooking, it's a great way to really get into cooking. If you're experienced, you'll still be amazed at the high quality ingredients that are included, as well as the diversity of them. I was ecstatic to try out all the recipes as well as try the ingredients in dishes I already make. It's awesome, no one who cooks will be disappointed!!
I bought a 3 month subscription for my grandmother for Christmas. She can be a hard one to shop for because she already has everything she needs. This gift was a hit with the whole family (and by whole, I mean the female population). All of the women in the family were passing around December's box, checking out the ingredients and smelling the spices. Plans were made on the spot for a couple people to help grandma make some of the recipes. To me, promoting time spent together in the kitchen, that was the best part. Outside of that, the box itself was well presented and, well, adorable.
I plan on ordering my own subscription. I like that you can choose recipes to meet dietary preferences. I'm not a vegetarian but have been wanting to cut back on meat, and don't really know how. This will be perfect for showing me how to cook a meal that isn't centered around meat.
All of the things!
1. The cute little bottles and containers! I love the sample sizes that way I can try a bunch of different stuff without having to buy full sizes!
2. The recipes! They are so unique and I have yet to come across something I have made before. I loooove growing my recipe collection!
3. Heart & soul. I can tell that the kits were put together with thought and love and I can feel that each time I open a new box.
4. Allergy sensitive. I have specific nutrition needs, and it was so easy to request recipes and ingredients that fit my needs.
I've also never had any issues with shipping, billing, customer service, or the product itself. I have been a monthly subscriber since box #1! I highly recommend ordering it!!!
You really get a variety of items, and just enough so you can use it a few times. The recipes are accessible and run the gamut. Really enjoy this box!
Culinarie Kit curates each monthly subscription box with ingredients that are to die for, and a rubber chef duck. The box I received had three different seasoning mixes, and Thai chili oil. This box comes with five different recipes to use the ingredients with. But you can be creative, and use the ingredients for various other recipes if you are feeling adventurous. This box is great for a beginner cook to a more experienced one. I love that with this box, you can finally try a dish that you've always wanted to try. I tried making the chicken satay & peanut sauce, which I've always wanted to try. I can tell you it was a SUCCESS! Just a little note though, read the recipe carefully because the tablespoon and teaspoon are both capitalized. Don't accidentally put in tablespoon when it should be teaspoon. Other than that, create some dee-licious dishes with this wonderfully curated subscription box. Happy Cooking! Enjoy!
I love culinarie kit! Using culinarie kit helped me branch out with my cooking, trying new ingredients and new ways to approach food. I gave it as a gift to my mom, sister and grandma and we were all able to try new things together, even living hours away.
