If you want to discover the world through food without traveling, Try the World box subscription is the way to go. You get to try a gourmet box from a new country every two months. I just got their holiday box last month and I couldn't be happier with its content. I received the Thailand box this month and I am over the moon because I am familiar with most of the products that's in there.
So let me unveil what's inside the Thai box. There is a Tom Yum soup set, coconut flower syrup, taro chips, curry paste, coconut crispy rolls, jasberry rice, dried jack fruit, and Thai iced tea. I have never been to Thailand yet but my husband had been there during his military days. He is very fond of Thai foods especially dishes with curry.
I am excited about this Organic Tom yum soup set because I would like to try making it. The set includes organic dried chili, organic kaffir lime leaves, organic dried galangal, and organic dried lemon grass.
I am planning to go the store later and grab me some mushrooms so I can make this soup tonight.
I added a can of coconut milk, 1 lb rganic chicken, and mushrooms. IT sure tasted so delicious! I felt like I was in Asia again, lol.
I have tried making an Indian dish with curry before and my husband loved it. This green curry paste would definitely help me make another dish that my husband is very fond of. Curry is not my favorite thing but I can eat a dish with it once in a while.
This coconut flower syrup is new to me. I have eaten fresh young coconut flower before but not syrup. You can use it to sweeten your tea, a really good alternative when you don't have honey and you can also use this for your toast.
This jasberry rice reminds me of my childhood. My mom cook this once in a while when I was a kid and the smell is just so good! It's been years since I ate jasberry rice. I don't even know that they are called jasberry rice lol. We call it differently in the Philippines. This is rich in antioxidants and fiber which makes it one of the healthiest among the variety of rice. You can serve this as a side or you can make rice pudding with this.
Because of me, my husband learned to love jack fruit. I usually incorporate canned jack fruit in one of the Filipino dessert I make once in a while and my daughter love it too. However, we never had any dried jack fruit before so I was curious. The taste is the same but the texture is leathery since it is dried. My daughter and I killed it on the first day lol.
I introduced my kids and husband into taro before. The only way they would eat it is if I incorporate into dessert so that's what I always do. I was impressed to see that Thai made chips out of taro, that's a brilliant idea!
Guess what, we loved this! You can tell just by looking at the photo below that it is made of 100% taro plant. It's one of my favorite veggie plant as a child. Now that I tasted how good these chips are, I would say that I would love to buy this again!
This is another Thai product that I am so impressed about. I mean making crispy rolls with coconut is such a great idea. It is really good. My daughter and I love these coconut crispy rolls.
So if you want to embark on a delicious journey, you should check out Try the World. If you purchase a holiday box this month, you will also get the Spain box for FREE!
