Try The World:- Holiday Box: Michelin Edition – Gift Gourmet Foods

For this Holiday season, Try The World and Michelin are coming together to create a Special Edition Holiday Box filled with 8 incredible holiday foods from around the world. From rich Hanukkah desserts to Christmas pastries and cakes for Chinese New Year, every holiday calls for its own set of delicious culinary traditions. Try The World

Are you ready for the Holiday Box: Michelin Edition? As the Holiday Season approaches, it is time to make plans for those special gifts and meals we all enjoy sharing and TTW – Try The World has a fantastic gift that you can share with pride and joy. This November, they collaborated with Michelin, and Chef Thomas Raquel of the 3-star Michelin restaurant, Le Bernardin, to create a carefully curated box of eight delectable gourmet goodies for you and your guests. Chef Raquel, a popular pastry chef,  explored the world of delicious desserts to select foods from France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Mexico, South Africa, Israel, and Taiwan. The choices will make both your heart and stomach sing.

What was in my Holiday Box: Michelin Edition?  My red and gold box held Eight (8) gourmet delicacies that I’m sure you’ll enjoy:   1. Pain d’Epices Baking Mix  – made up of milled organic flour and baking spices for a delicious spiced bread from the Marlette sisters in France. 2. Truffle Sauce –  a delicious dipping sauce made from fresh truffles by the Guiliano Tartufi family in Italy. 3. Pineapple Cake –  Buttery cake with a jam filling; it’s a great one from Taiwan with a message of prosperity that makes it a great gift for the Lunar New Year. 4. Lemon Curd –  This popular treat, by Fox Gourmet from the UK, can be spread on scones or added to desserts.  5. Honey & Salt Toffee – These rich and creamy sweets from Darling Sweet, in South Africa, have been a favorite staple since 2013.  6. Hot Chocolate Tablets –  K’ekua chocolates from Mexico are made with the best cocoa beans and can be enjoyed in hot milk or coffee after a meal… Delicioso!  7. Date Spread –  This good luck treat by Yoffi in Israel is made from dates grown on a community farm.  8. Shortbread Cookies – A rich and buttery cookie made by Sprucewood Handmade Cookie Co., which was founded by Mark Pollard, 25 years ago, in Canada. Come back shortly for more on my treats!

    Foods are basic and biological needs of every humans and animals for that matter. Our strength, our wisdom and well-being are too dependent on the food intake we have everyday.

    A friend of mine gets this box, I believe. She’s pretty impressed with it. Hers came with a Moroccan oil sample. I didn’t even know that was edible! In your box – I think I would go through the hot chocolate tablets first. That’s my favorite way to make cocoa – and I usually add a pinch of cayenne, too!
