I have to give a shout out to Try The World, a food subscription box service that delivers a curated box of authentic gourmet foods from a different country every two months. With boxes from Paris, Tokyo, Rio and Venice, to name a few, you can now sample food from across the country without ever leaving your kitchen. Prices range from $33 – $39/box depending on how many you order.
This sounds exactly like Blue Apron and similar services, but more culturally-focused. Not only do you get food, but many of the boxes also contain culture guides with music, movies and more.
Check them out and if you do order, let me know what you think!
