Q: Do you have a gluten free option?Asked by Elizabeth D., July 2022
Thanks so much for asking! While I don't offer specific gluten-free versions of each box, some are naturally gluten-free. If you are looking for a subscription, I can't guarantee that every box will end up being gluten-free, however, you can always check out the Roaming Radish website (www dot roamingradish dot club) for single boxes that have the gluten-free designation. I hope that helps!
Q: Are the ingredients included in the box enough to make multiple meals?Asked by Shelly G., July 2022
Thanks for your question! Every box has enough ingredients to make about 4 servings of each of recipe included in the box. Depending on the box and availability of ingredients, there may be extra that will allow you to use some of the ingredients again in future recipes. I hope that helps!
Q: Are there vegetarian options?Asked by Linda C., November 2021
Almost every box I’ve sent out includes only vegetarian ingredients, though the recipes do often call for meat. I try to include a vegetarian substitute suggestion on every meat based recipe to help out. If you are looking to buy just one box, the December box this year is completely vegetarian- recipes and ingredients both. I hope that helps!
Q: Hi do these boxes ship to Alaska?Asked by Catherine K., October 2021
Yes- we ship anywhere in the US!
We liked the recipes. Chicken Satay came out very tasty.
We just had our first meal from our first box. This box is totally unique, worth every penny, and so tasty! We can't wait for our next meal!
My Roaming Radish box came and I was beyond impressed. I love the high quality ingredients packaged neatly along with in depth instructions and my family loved it too. I got the South Indian box first and my favorite dish was the Aloo Masala. I was amazed how quickly and easily I was able to make deluxe and authentic Indian cuisine and having all the unique and hard to find ingredients included was super convenient. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good gift or for yourself if you are interested in cooking more adventurous dishes.
We have been enjoying Roaming Radish boxes for over 6 months now and always look forward to their arrival on our doorstep. It's a treat to open the box to reveal this month's theme and learn about the culture and cuisine of a different part of the world. The combination of well-curated, user-friendly recipes and exotic ingredients makes preparing the dishes easy and enjoyable. Well-designed information cards, including high-quality photos, and careful packaging add to the experience. And the results are always delicious!
Very very disappointed. First box and the onky unique ingredients I don’t have on hand were the spice blends. The rest could be costed out at about $6 total.
Not what I expected at all.
I’m sorry you were disappointed with the subscription and I appreciate your feedback as I plan my future boxes. I'm always trying to strike a balance between hard to find ingredients, while also representing different cuisines/recipes from around the world. Sometimes this means a box, like the Cuban box, will have ingredients that are a little more familiar since we’re not too far away. Other boxes, like the South Indian box coming up next month, will be almost exclusively items you probably don’t have in your pantry already. I'd be happy to chat more if you have any additional feedback for me.
Thanks so much,
I received my first box a few days ago. Persian cuisine. I made my first dish today and it was yummy. I also appreciate that they cards had suggestions for meat substitutions. Very nice. So far, this subscription is a keeper.
What a great cooking box! We ordered this for our 13 year old daughter that loves to cook. Each month she gets different recipes from different countries. There's also an informational card include about the country. So fun making this with her and she's so excited to see what's in the next box! The food was amazing! The entire family (of picky eaters) loved it!!
Thanks so much Tina! Outside of Roaming Radish, I am an elementary school teacher, so it makes me happy to hear that this has been a great experience for your daughter! I hope you continue to enjoy your boxes!
I highly recommend this box to anyone that enjoys international cuisines! I can cook but it isn't my favorite thing to do...this box completely changed the way I feel about cooking. It has been so fun to be in my kitchen, yet travel around the world through different international cuisines. All the ingredients are special and typically very hard to find for someone in a suburb or rural area. I am all about attention to detail, I love the way everything is perfectly wrapped in a neat and clean way! I have been these boxes for 3 months and plan to continue as I cannot wait to see where I will be traveling to next month!
Thank you so much for your kind words Dona! I'm so happy you are enjoying your subscription so far and I hope you continue to enjoy your future culinary adventures!
Love the interesting new cuisines! A change from the usual!
