Each box comes with a Culture Guide that includes the story behind each product, recipes to make with the items, and tips to best experience the country’s culinary culture.
Frutaformas Crunchy Apple Rings
These thinly sliced apple ring are crunchy and crisp. Rich in fiber, gluten-free and without additives. They tasted great and were gone in no time!
Casa Lucena Lemon Cookies
These are typical Portuguese biscuits. They're delicate crispy cookies with lemon flavour. We enjoyed these too!
Olivais do Sul Extra Virgin Olive Oil
This bitter and slightly spicy olive oil is a perfect addition to a variety of dishes. We use a lot of EVOO and love trying new brands, so this is another welcome product! (I couldn't find a price for this.)
RARE by Quinta de Jugais Pumpkin And Hazelnut Jam
One of the most popular fruit preserves in the country, pumpkin jam is delicious over toast or along side a selection of hard and pungent cheeses.
Casa da Prisca Caramelized Onions with Balsamic Reduction and Port Wine
This spread is made with port, one of Portugal’s most iconic spirits, and is best enjoyed with cheese.
Paladin Piri Piri Hot Sauce
A quintessentially Portuguese condiment, piri piri hot sauce was first introduced to Europe in the 15th century when Christopher Columbus came back home with piri piri peppers. Since then, the sauce has been used throughout the country. Add it to a variety of dishes for extra heat. Piri Piri is one of my favourite hot sauces, so I was excited to get this!
Hands on Earth Sea Salt and Lemon
This finishing salt is made free of pesticides and chemicals, and lemon adds a zesty finish to any dish. This is another product I'll be using a lot! It smells so fresh, I love the lemon!
Briosa Gourmet Codfish in Olive Oil
Codfish (called bacalhau in its typical, salted form), is one of Portugal’s most iconic foods. Biros Gourmet wraps their canned codfish in beautiful packaging reminiscent of hydraulic tiles, an art form in which pigments are pressed onto cement. I don't eat fish, so I didn't try this.
Try The World really won me over with this box! I love Portugal cuisine, so this was a winner for me! The value isn't high, but it's over the cost of the box, so that's good. I am impressed with the number of products and the quality! I love that you are getting authentic products from the featured city. Great for anyone who's into experiencing food from different cultures! If you sign up today you'll receive this box, but if you don't want to commit to a subscription you can buy one-off boxes for $49.
