Can't complain! I got this as a gift for a friend and she loves it!
I got this as a present for a relative who loves to cook, and it's been just great– a lovely present that doesn't just sit on the shelf. And customer service has been great!
Just received my first box, and I am in awe. I love, love, love it. The first dish I am going to make is the eggplant. I always look for different ways to cook it. This recipe is perfect.
If your meals are boring, maybe you need to try new seasonings. But, the spice rack at the store can be $$$. Piquant Post provides spices from a different country or region monthly. 4 packets along with recipes using each spice. One of the best subscriptions we receive.
I gave this as a gift to a friend who loves cooking, and he says he looks forward to it every month! It makes him step out of his comfort zone with cooking.
I love your recipes! Across the board the food is fabulous, and it makes it easy to try cooking new cuisines with complex flavors and spices. Highly recommended !
I love this subscription box! Each month a generous sampling of 4 spices arrives with some interesting recipes to try. I love to cook and this has been a fun way to get out of my comfort zone and try new recipes.
Got this as a gift for my daughter who LOVES to cook. She is thrilled each month and regularly posts photos of her creations on the socials. She is always surprised by the unique spices she receives. Would highly recommend.
I’ve received two months of this subscription and loved them both! The recipes are easy to follow and the flavors are wonderful. This has been a great way to get out of my cooking comfort zone.
I've made three of the four recipes I've received so far and they have all been a) easy to make b) way superior to my own cooking and c) delicious. I'm super into it.
Great recipes, great spice blends, timely shipping ....it’s all good.
I wish there were a way to pause my subscription because I need to take a few months off. Looks like I have to cancel but I will be back....
My friend loved it. %100 recommend it for foodies.
Excellent subscription to try different meals from different places in the world! Love that recipes are included for each spice packet. Makes preparing dinner a BREEZE!
Haha silly pons aside, Piquant has been awesome to my cooking. Since getting the first box, my gf and I have broken out of our usual, trusty, but sometimes boring meals and tried cool new recipes. Each themed box has been really fun too. We're excited to see what themes are yet to come! Also the recipes have been simple too!
We have enjoyed all the selections so far, and look forward to the next months selection. Variety is the SPICE of life.
I have gifted two very special people in my life the gift of a Piquant Post subscription! It has been amazing, because they prepare the meals with the spices and recipes provided as part of the subscription, and I get to taste all the YUMMY goodness of Piquant Post!! I will absolutely gift Piquant Post again in the future ♥️
I've tried 4 recipes, and they were hit and miss, but when they hit, they hit hard (the Mexican Adobo is legit addicting...I was tempted to sprinkle it on my breakfast cereal). I recommend you automatically double the amount of spice each recipe calls for. Shipping time varies. One packet took over a week to arrive after shipment notification, the next packet took just a few days.
As a Texan, I was a little disappointed that my first month of Piquant Post contained Tex-Mex recipes. Why pay for "global" cuisine and then drive out of my way for expensive ingredients if I could just get the same thing for $12.99 down the street, no cooking or cleaning required?
The chilaquiles were our favorite, hands-down. Neither of us had ever had them before, they tasted fantastic, and the seasoning was the piece de resistance of the recipe.
The fajitas were delicious, but my husband and I both agreed we couldn't taste any of the seasoning packet. Plus 1 lb of steak divided into 4 servings means everyone got 2 strips of meat total.
The stuffed poblano peppers were good, but we both agreed we'd prefer to make just the stuffed peppers next time and not bother with the mole sauce. Neither of us cared for it.
The scallops tasted amazing the first day but did not reheat well for lunch the next day.
I enjoyed experimenting with new ingredients I'd never had the chance to cook with before, but I was surprised by how labor-intensive and time-consuming the recipes turned out to be -- usually 1 hour or more, by the time I chopped up vegetables. The recipes did get my husband to happily eat vegetarian, which was a big plus. But if my next Piquant Post deliveries do not truly deliver "world" cuisine like they promise, I do not think we will maintain our subscription.
Justin has been great with his service for my subscription. I'm on month two. The first month's recipes were Chinese food (five spice thighs, salt and pepper shrimp, cumin lamb, tangerine beef) and this month the theme is New Orleans. The recipes have tasted great from the first box and I can't wait to try the second. The A+ customer service Justin provides is what makes this box so great.
I have never tried cooking Caribbean food before but it was easier than I imagined. The Tangerine Pork Fried Rice was delicious as was the Sweet Potato Cakes with coconut lime sauce.
The Hong Kong Scallops were too salty with a tablespoon of Salt and 2 Pepper blend. Next time I will use a teaspoon.
