The World Portugal Box Review - Box Contents

For anyone who loves trying authentic foods and flavors from different countries, Try The World delivers in a delicious fashion. Chef Mendes made it easy to create a Portuguese culinary adventure in your own kitchen, choosing pantry staples that can be used to prepared traditional Portuguese appetizers and after-dinner treats.

The EVOO and sea salt and lemon seasoning can be used to help make simple flavors pop. The pumpkin and hazelnut jam was a really unique flavor combination that can stand up to more pungent cheeses. If you like spice, you’ll enjoy the heat from this month’s piri piri hot sauce.
