Try The World: Gifts Of Finest Foods Curated Globally

10/12/2014

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” J.R.R. Tolkien

Try The World: Gifts Of Finest Foods Curated Globally - The Holiday Box

Try The World: Gifts Of Finest Foods Curated Globally – The Holiday Box

“At Try The World, we believe that life is too short to not try everything that’s out in the world. So we created the first subscription program to discover the best gourmet food and cultural finds from across the globe, delivered to your door!” Kat and David Owners,Try The World

Have you ever fantasized about having breakfast in Paris, a midday meal and siesta treats in Firenze, dinner in Brazil, or even an exquisite evening of food tasting at a Moroccan souk or outdoor market? Have you imagined chocolate liqueurs on a Gondola in Venice or in some other divine location? Now you can enjoy them without leaving home. Try The World will help you travel the world through fabulous, authentic, gourmet foods made with locally sourced ingredients, and selected by celebrity chefs, artisans, small specialty farmers, and keen world travelers! From the comfort of your home, you will experience the best foods and treats from top chefs and food artisans around the world.

Every two months, a sea-foam/sea-breeze green box of delectable foods, spices, treats and more will be delivered to your doorstep. Shipping is free. When I connected with the folk at Try The World, I was excited because I’ve always believed that travel stretches our minds and exposes us to foods, lifestyles and cultures around the world. My upbringing on three continents and my travels, alone and with my family, have left me with indelible memories and friends around the world. So you can imagine my delight in being able to receive and review their Holiday Gift Box.

“I am not a great cook, I am not a great artist, but I love art, and I love food, so I am the perfect traveler.” Michael Palin

“I love dessert. I can’t be guilty about it because I have to taste everything. I experiment.” Martha Stewart

When my Holiday Gift box arrived, I was eager to open it and examine the contents. They didn’t disappoint. My beautiful box was tied with a pretty red bow and the contents were packed in festive red confetti. On top of my gourmet food items, they had added a Holiday Culture Guide, and a two-sided postcard detailing the contents of my box.The holiday culture guide had a sweet holiday greeting message from David and Kat, with food and movie tips, and a recipe for brigadeiro (national truffle of Brazil) that you can make for the season. I was stoked.

My holiday box contained: a sampling of Urbani Tartufi Italian truffle oil and their cioccolatini dark chocolate; two RipVan Amsterdam waffles (one caramel and one cocoa filled Dutch waffles) and a box of Dorval Premium collection mint dark chocolate sticks; a sweet-smelling bag of Palais Des Thes French teas and a sizable bag of aromatic Provence Epice Herbes de Provence; a box of delicious Annas Swedish Ginger thins/cookies(described as Sweden’s most loved Pepparkaka!) and Favarger’s luxurious Swiss chocolates rounded out my box. Favarger’s is the most famous chocolatier in Geneva and one of the oldest brands of Swiss chocolate. I unpacked my box and sat still inhaling the delicate smells wafting by my nose.

For a moment, I was transported to every one of those locations and sweet memories filled my mind. Rudyard Kipling was right when he said that; “The first condition of understanding a foreign country is to smell it.” Those smells stay with us for a lifetime. A phone call interrupted my morning reverie and I was back home in NY. After the call, I got up, went to the kitchen and made myself a cup of the french tea. I served myself a few ginger thins, warmed up a Dutch waffle, cocoa flavor to be exact, and sat back on the sofa lost in the scrumptious treats and tea. Verdict? DIVINE!

“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.” Pat Conroy

Sign up today and experience the world in a truffle, a teacup, or a bite of chocolate. Each box comes with a Culture Guide and a double-sided postcard explaining the origin of the foods and specific details about each item. Isn’t that exciting? Not only do they ship subscription boxes, but they also offer a selection of gift items in their shop. But wait, if you sign up this week, you will receive a 2nd box free.  You can send a subscription as a gift to friends and family this holiday season, and even send one to your weary, world traveled uncle or aunt. Give someone special a brilliant gift of exotic/exquisite foods from other cultures.

Tt gets better! Try The World has also generously given a special offer of 30% discount off the first subscription box to all my readers.

Who’s the genius behind this great food and culture idea? Now that I’ve piqued your interest, I bet you’d love to know a bit more about the company and it’s offerings. Company owners, Kat Vorotova and David Foult, met as students at Columbia University and found they shared a love for travel and discovering new cultures. They combined forces and Try The World was born. Today, they collaborate with chefs, food artisans, experienced foodies and world travelers around the world, to bring you the best foods from countries far and near. They ship their beautiful sea-form green boxes filled with carefully curated authentic gourmet food, selected from a different country every 2 months, to homes throughout the United States. They plan to offer more destinations in the near future.

I’m excited to share that Try the World has invited me to join Try The World’s Ambassador program. As an Ambassador for this extraordinary brand, you will enjoy all/any exclusive promotions shared with me.
The first is this: SPECIAL OFFER: Try The World has made a special offer of 30% discount off the first subscription box code to all my readers. Use the coupon code MIRTHANDMOTIVATIONTRAVELS during your checkout to get your awesome discount.
