Q: Are past boxes available? Are online video recordings available if you aren’t able to get online at the time of the events?Asked by Linda C., May 2021
Hi! We do have a few past boxes available if you are interested and all recordings are available with box purchases of both the cooking and cultural experience. We have Chiang Mai, Thailand, a few Florence, Italy - Date Night, and very few of the Kyoto, Japan boxes available. Feel free to check them out here: hello-trovedotcom.

Lovely selection of items. I basically inhaled the coconut chips, the bowl is beautiful (I love wooden kitchen items) and look forward to making the recipes and watching the videos. I appreciated the inclusion of a grocery list in the booklet.
The Kyoto Trove box was given to me as a gift and I was totally blown away! There’s we’re SO many incredible things included in the box and I was really impressed by the quality of the ingredients for our two cooking classes. Especially the 3 course meal- it fed my husband and I for two days! I loved learning so much and also having an opportunity to feel like I was “with friends” even during the stay at home order in my state. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
