Food Trip To..Argentina! May 2017 Unboxing & Review

Food Trip To is a bi-monthly Canadian subscription box service that delivers boxes to subscribers to discover the food culture of a new destination every 2 months. They typically send 6-8 products from the country of choice, a playlist of songs from the destination, information on the cultural and entertainment of the destination, and a small surprise or souvenir from the country!

Food Trip To… was founded in Montreal in 2015 by two friends who are avid gourmet adventurers. Their goal is to take as many homebodies as possible along on daring trips of discovery to find new cultures and flavours… from the comfort of home!

Right away, I think this is a really neat idea and something so different! Experiencing other cultures is fantastic but not everyone has the means to travel and actually see different countries, so Food Trip To brings you the unique experience of tasting the food and learning about the cultures of places around the world.

Recipes

This seems to be Argentina’s famous drink, which is made with the Yerba Mate and combined with limes and vodka. You are supposed to steep the Yerba Mate in hot water first, let cool and then add the rest of the ingredients. YUM!

Alfajores Y Mate

I am soooo excited to make this dish! I, of course, tried the Dulce de leche with a spoon first which is the creamiest, milkiest spoonful of caramel. This recipe does look slightly challenging but I’m always up for a challenge-especially when it involves Dulce de leche!

Final Thoughts

How impressive is this box??? I have never seen a subscription box that is so informative and includes full-sized, high quality products. Food Trip To puts genuine care into each box by travelling to each country and getting to know the culture, style and of course the food before curating a box. The products are all genuine dishes of the country of choice and truly encompass the culture that Food Trip To brings to each subscriber through this box. The fun part is, that you can do whatever you want with the ingredients! I love that the box comes with recipes to guide you, so you can choose to follow them or you can make your own dishes. On the contrary, not everyone likes to go out and have to buy the food themselves to make with the ingredients but I’m on the opposite side of that, I think this is a fun and innovative way to get cooking and learn about a different culture!
