#TryTheWorld - Marrakesh Gourmet Box


How would you like to try all the flavors of the world? There is a super cool subscription box that will let you do just that! Try The World features a new box from a different city around the world every two months. I was sent the current box which is from Marrakesh (Morocco). 

When the box first arrive I did an un-boxing video. Check it out: 

Since the video quality wasn't as great as I had hoped, I decided to share pictures and more information with you as well. Here is what I received:

-Dari, organic whole wheat couscous- I have only had couscous a few times. The last time it was mixed with a lemon sauce and diced peppers and it was amazing. I am excited to make this with the Tajini cous cous sauce that I will be showing you in a moment.

-Dip&Scoop, culinary argan oil - We tried this with some fresh French bread the other day and it was delicious. What is neat about this company is that the Dip&Scoop is handmade by Berber women in Southwestern Morocco that are paid fair wages and provided a safe work environment.

-Tajini, tajine Cous Cous sauce in Olive and Lemon- I am really excited to try this. I have had Tajini a few times in the past and liked it. I am particularly excited to try this one with the cous cous box I received. I have it planned for dinner this coming weekend with some chicken.

-Orientines, biscuits - I wasn't quite sure what these were. Now that I have had them I would describe them as more of a pastry. They are great with coffee or tea and it is hard to only eat one serving. This bag is now sadly empty.

-Villa Jerada, kefta rub - This was one of the items that I was most excited about in the box. Kefta rubbed meat is amazing and I am so excited to add this to my spice cabinet. This jar also retails for $14.95 on the Try The World website.

-Titus, sardines in oil - Sardines are just not my thing. I gave these to a friend whom loved them. If you can overcome the fish heads but don't want to eat them straight from the can, they can be used to add salt to many dishes. 

The box also came with a really cool "culture guide". It has information about the city and recipes. My culture guide even included a Moroccan poem, a list and description of Moroccan movies and a Marrakesh Playlist. So cool. 

Please note: Try The World works with artisanal producers from around the world, and therefore each box may be a little bit different. All boxes have a curated assortment of delicious and authentic gourmet products of similar value. When opening your Try The World box, you may be pleasantly surprised to discover different local flavors than the ones I have received! The card included in your box will guide you through your culinary adventure.

Morocco is on my list of places to visit within the next 12 months. Having a sample box like this would be a great introduction.
