The Try The World food subscription box allows subscribers to travel the world through a bi-monthly box of gourmet foods and ingredients. Each Try The World box is curated by a celebrity chef and features local and authentic gourmet foods from that month’s destination.
With each box, Try The World includes a product card that describes each month’s product, as well as a Culture Guide. The Culture Guide introduces you to that box’s chef curator as well as cultural facts, recipes, and suggestions for using that month’s box. The September/October 2015 Spain Try The World box was curated by James Beard Award Winner Jamie Bissonnette – the chef-owner of acclaimed tapas restaurant Toro.
Here’s a first look inside our Spain Try The World Box.

September/October 2015 Try The World Spain Box Review Wrap-Up
The Spain Try The World gourmet food box allowed us to enjoy the bold and delicious flavors that Spanish cuisine is known for, without having to leave the country. We loved that each ingredient could be used to great a Spanish appetizer or entrée, or enjoyed with a cup of tea. The citrus crumble cakes were a perfect not-too-sweet treat for enjoy after dinner. We used the Oleum Hispania EVOO an El Avion spoked paprika for a simple roasted potatoes recipe packed with flavor!
