Try The World is a subscription service that brings you a gourmet taste of a new country every 2 months. The first box I received is the Marrakesh box. I am so excited about this subscription!
Every 2 months Try The World sends you a box of 6 -9 delicacies from a new city around the world. Each item is curated by a local culinary expert. You also get a card describing each item and a cultural guide with music, movies, recipes and more. It is a great learning tool for kids!
When I signed up there was a promotion going that when you signed up you get an additional box for free. So in addition to my Marrakesh box I should be getting a Paris box sometime soon. I will post a blog on that one as soon as I receive it.
On to the items in my Marrakesh Box:
Dari Organic Whole Wheat Couscous
Couscous is one my favorite things to eat so I’m so glad this was in my box!
Dip & Scoop Culinary Argan Oil
Handmade by Berber Women in Southwestern Morroco. This oil is good for topping off fish or vegetable dishes or as a dip for flat bread. I haven’t tasted it yet but it smells really good!
Tajini Tajine Sauce
This sauce was created to make things like tagine (a stew cooked in a clay pot) and other Morrocan cuisine that much easier to make!
These are delicious! Flaky butter cookies that go great with Morrocan Mint Tea. My boys were most excited about this one.
Villa Jerada Kefta Rub
An aromatic spice blend to use for making Kefta (Morrocan Meatballs) as well as other dishes. This smells so yummy! I have actually had kefta before and I love it. I can’t wait to use this to make my own.
Titus Sardines in Oil
Okay, so I’m not super excited about this one. I’ve never been a sardine fan but they are a staple of Morrocan cuisine and my sons are dead-set on trying them. So I’m going to figure out a good recipe to try them in. I’ll let you know how that goes.
That is all of the food items in the box. The cultural card had a lot of really cool information like a recipe for Marrakesh Stew, the Morrocan Tea Ceremony and Culture, a list of Morrocan Movies and a link to a playlist of Morrocan Music (which we all danced around to).
Overall this subscription box is awesome! It’s great if you love to cook and try new foods. I am most excited about it because it is going to be a great tool to teach my boys about different places around the world and to learn to like all different kinds of food.

Also, the Tagine in these pictures did not come in my box. It is one I already owned. Mine came from Williams-Sonoma. You can also find them on Amazon.
