Try The World gourmet food boxes feature items from around the world, curated by famous chefs. Each gourmet item is created by small or family-owned businesses who follow artisanal methods of production. I received a free Try The World Holiday Box for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.
About Try The World
Try The World was created by two New Yorkers who shared a passion for travel and food. In 2013, Try The World launched its first prototype, The Paris Gourmet Food Box, which sold out within 2 days! Since the company’s launch, close to one million items have been imported and shipped to those who are passionate about food and travel.
How Does Try The World Work?
You can subscribe to Try The World or give a box as a gift. Try The World subscribers receive a box of gourmet goodies from a new country every 2 months. The boxes are curated by famous chefs from around the world who select authentic, high-quality items.
Each box comes with a Culture Guide that includes the story behind each food item, recipe ideas, and tips to best experience the country’s culinary culture (including a curated music playlist).
The Special Edition Holiday Box
The Try The World Holiday Box is available now through December and is filled with 8 holiday treats from around the world. This special edition box is curated by food and wine expert David Rosengarten (James Beard Award winner and host of countless Food Network shows) and includes cookies, truffles, and tea.
Review of The Special Edition Holiday Box
I absolutely loved everything about the Try The World Holiday Gift Box! There is so much thought and care put into each detail. The packaging is lovely and would be a beautiful gift to give this holiday season. Each goodie in the box was something special and my guests and I enjoyed trying each item.
The Culture Guide featured insightful background about each product. My favorite story was that of the Sindyanna of Galilee Olive Oil which is grown and harvested by a cooperative of Arab and Jewish women in northern Isreal. The mission of the cooperative fosters unity in a territory whose ownership is contested by the very groups the company brings together.
Each item had an ingredient list in English. Many of the products were organic and/or produced using sustainable growing practices which is a huge plus for me.
I loved that the items were not only delicious and unique but also came from small or family-owned businesses and appeared to be created with great care. It really was a wonderful experience to be able to taste these gourmet delights and to share them with my family and friends. (Each item contained enough product to provide a sample taste to 4-6 people.)
Try The World would make a wonderful gift for anyone who appreciates gourmet food and loves to travel or dreams of traveling. Try The World is a wonderful way to experience new cuisines, learn about other cultures, and support small companies and the communities they serve.
