If you like to try foods from other countries but
have a fear of flying or maybe you are like me and do not have the extra money
or luxury of traveling why not subscribe to Try The World a monthly
subscription box that is curated by expert chefs. I got the Thailand Box which
included 8 specialty foods to start my culinary journey with chef Jet Tila.
Tom Yum Soup Set which is a perfect
balance of sour and spicy which is known for medicinal properties. The spices
included in this set are harvested from a small village in northern Thailand
and make it easy to cook your own at home.
Flour Syrup is a common sweetener that is hand harvested and made by
collecting the nectar that flows from coconut blossoms when they are cut in western
Taro Chips which is a
starchy root vegetable that tastes like a potato but richer and milky in
flavor. In Thai markets it is generally sold fresh, cooked and fried.
Paste long ago, Thai gooks took inspiration from Indian curry to create a
distinct variation with fresh herbs. Based on their traditional family recipe,
Nittaya is known for its quality and as a staple ingredient in Thai home
Coconut Crisp Rolls in Thai, these crumbly cookies are called thong
muan. Thong means gold so giving these cookies to someone as a gift is
interpreted as a wish for wealth.
Rice this new strain of rice is packed with antioxidants and fiber, making
it one of the most healthful varieties.
Soft Dried Jackfruit Thai families generally buy fruit and vegetables from
trucks in the street that announces their daily selection. This produce forms
an important part of the diet. Locals eat the fresh or the dried variety as a
snack during the day.
Thai Iced Tea the milky and grassy
flavors of Thai iced tea make it one of Thailand’s best loved beverages. This
kit is made by a company that was built on the site of Bangkok’s old royal
palace and strives to preserve Thai culinary culture.
My Opinion: This is a great box to try different
items from around the world and the price is comparable to other like boxes. I
enjoyed the coconut crisp rolls and coconut flour nectar both very tasty. The
jasberry rice was interesting.
