As this weekend in the US with the Labor Day holiday marks the end of summer, our thoughts turn to the question: What did we love about our vacation and where shall we go next? When can I discover a new place, a new food, an intriguing taste?
Thanks for an article in Huffington Post (huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/02/food-subscription-gourmet_n_5072089.html). I discovered there’s a way to bring the world – through food – to your doorstop. Not through Netflix, YouTube or magazine. Rather in a pretty box delivered to the door. Try The World (trytheworld.com) is a subscription service that offers boxes of gourmet products, six times a year, delivered to the subscriber. Each box features 6- 7 items representing the food a specific country. This month they are featuring Spain. On their earlier list are Japan, Morocco, Thailand and France.
It isn't simply about discovering a new place. Been there and want to relive the experience through a special taste? Visit their shop and order a taste reminder of that visit. Wondering if you’ll like the food? Experiment with a product or two.
As summer ends, and it’s too soon to book the next trip, I am thinking that a box of tasty treats from far away may be just the thing to take me into fall and winter.
Where shall we go and what will we eat?
