I am so glad to finally get a review done for my Andrew Zimmern Quarterly Co box! This was my first Quarterly Co. box and I could not have been more thrilled to finally see what Andrew Zimmern included in his #ZIM02 box.
The Cost: $50 quarterly
The Products: A selection of unique foods, ingredients and stories from around the world as chosen by Andrew Zimmern.
The Concept: Each quarter, Andrew Zimmern gets to take you on a food journey around the world to experience culinary journeys in your own home.
“Replicating Asian foods at home might seem a tricky feat. Lucky for you, I’ve done the work of sourcing the best stuff so you don’t have to.”
Here is a basic Asian sauce recipe provided in the box.
Rain and Other South Sea Stories by W. Somerset Maugham – Retail Value $4.46
I read the reviews of this book and I am thoroughly excited to dive in. I think it is a great addition to get you in the mindset of Asian culture while you are eating.
Bluegrass Soy Sauce 100mL Flask – Retail Value $5.50
I usually buy the cheapest soy sauce available, but to have a quality sauce like this around. I do not think I can ever go back.
Pok Pok Som Drinking Vinegar – Retail Value $15
Verdant Tea Master Han’s Wild Picked Yunkan Black Tea – Retail Value $14
I was a little nervous about trying this tea because I am not a huge fan of black tea, but I was really impressed with how sweet the tea was and the depth of flavor.
Master Han’s Looseleaf 2004 Shu Pu’er – Retail Value $8
Season With Spice Thai Red Chili Peppers – Retail Value $4.49
Red Boat Fish Sauce – Retail Value $6.95
I’ve been meaning to pick up fish sauce for the longest time. I am so excited to get this bottle, it is a little embarrassing. I have a few recipes already lined up to try out with this sauce.
Thoughts: The total value of this box was just under $60 and I absolutely loved it! I love Asian food (probably because I am part Asian!) and I love discovering new books, so this was a double win for me. I cannot wait to get the next Andrew Zimmern box when it comes out!
