Perfect for the tween learning to cook and also very educational and an awesome way to teach kids about other cuisines in the world. Haven't tried the recipes yet but they look amazing. Simple and easy instructions and seasoning, sauce or oil from around the world. Truly unique!
My son and I have loved the last 2 boxes we have received.
Everything overall was cute, but the dish selections were just a little too basic. We can make spaghetti and meatballs whenever, so having that be in the Italy box was a huge letdown. We were hoping for things we had never tried or heard of before. If that's the case we can just look up recipes ourselves on the internet.
Just received my first box, and I'm pretty excited! Not only are there well-organized recipes and ingredients, but there is also information about the country itself. I ordered this for my own culinary interests but will probably end up making it a family event as it is so kid-friendly. Deduction of 1 star because 1) did not receive any information or instruction regarding the kitchen tool I received. And 2) I had hoped for more than 1 use of ingredients/spices. This box appears to include only enough ingredients for 1 full recipe of each dish. If I wanted to make these recipes again, it would be nice to know where to find the ingredients online without having to order another full box.
The contents weren't bad but seeing as I live in the southern US and my box was southern US it just feels a little like I picked all this stuff up at a local store, wasn't much exploring going on with our meals.
Meh... was hoping for something not in the US. We know how to cook american food :-|
My son can't wait for his next box, he's been checking the mail everyday. He truely enjoyed everthing about it. He is 12 yrs old so he was able to cook everything with just my oversite. All the meals were absolutley delicious, great recipes with easy to follow instructions. How perfect at a time like this, where we all have to stay home and what great skills for him to learn.
