Leave a comment below for a chance to win a “Try the World” Gift Box.
One of the great pleasures of travel is discovering new foods and flavors from around the world. For any food enthusiast, finding new culinary delights is almost like making new friends because foods reveal so much about people, places and cultures.
Try the World is a new subscription gift service that is perfect for the food lovers on your gift list who look forward to savoring new tastes—perhaps the relative who loves to try new restaurants; the friend who appreciates new ethnic dishes and ingredients; or the armchair traveler who is interested in lifelong learning about foods from around the globe. A subscription would also make a great birthday or holiday gift for a colleague, out-of-town friend, or son/daughter away at school.
Every two months, the gift recipient will find a surprise box on his/her doorstep with a selection of artisanal food samples from a different county, the contents curated by a celebrity chef. For example, the foods on a given month may be from France, Spain, Brazil or Morocco.
Congratulations to Mardy, the winner of the holiday box!
This unique concept was created by Kat Vorotova, a New York foodie born in Russia and David Foult, a French globetrotter who both met while studying at Columbia University.
Subscriptions start at $33 per box and include a culture guide, product card and music playlist. Shipping is free and subscribers can pause or cancel at any time.

Try the World has agreed to send one reader of More Time To Travel a complimentary ‘Special Edition Holiday Box’ at the same time it is being released to subscribers.
This gourmet box will arrive at your home beautifully wrapped in an aquamarine box with a red ribbon, and will include 8 culinary specialties (instead of the usual 7) from a variety of countries. Think gingersnaps from Sweden, açaí dessert sauce from Brazil and mini-Panettone from Italy.
To be eligible to receive the Try The World Special Edition Gourmet Holiday Box, leave a comment below by November 10th naming the country whose cuisine you favor above all others.
One lucky winner will be randomly selected to receive the gift box and announced here on November 12th 2015. Limited to U.S. addresses only.
Disclosure: The sponsor sent me a holiday box to write this review and is sponsoring the reader giveaway.
