And so we meet again. Here we are, traveling the world with Try the World. This is my second box from Try the World (my first was Venice) and I was really excited to receive it since the theme was Moroccan based with the city of Marrakesh. I waited patiently for my pretty blue box to arrive. When it finally did, I set out to make a video recording the opening.
There were so many great things in my box. So, let’s go through each one, shall we?
Mustapha’s Mediterranean Preserved Lemon Confit. This is basically pickled lemons. Only, I didn’t know that until I popped open the jar thinking these would taste good on some vanilla frozen yogurt. Nope. While they don’t taste pickled like you would think of pickles or something like pickled okra, there is a very different lemony taste. So, Mr. Yum and I decided that we’d try to make some Moroccan chicken and roast a whole chicken and cook it with some of these lemons to see how it turned out. I’ll update when we get it made.
Mediterranean Gourmet Ras-El-Hanout Blend. I used this spice on my boneless porkchops I made for my Weight Watchers weekly meal prep. My house smelled amazing as they cooked. Tasted good too. This is one spice I can’t wait to use more of.
Sultan. Fancy smancy sardines. Seriously. In oil. I love sardines but I have not tried these yet.
Villa Jerada Kefta Rub. This smells amazing. I roasted up a giant slab of ribs over the weekend that had this rub on them. Mr. Yum and kiddo had no problems picking the bones clean. She said they were the “best ribs ever!”
Dip & Scoop Culinary Argan Oil. Argan oil can be used for so many things (protect your skin) and in so many dishes. It’s also perfect for bread dipping. I need some fancy bread. Then I’ll show you 😉 For those new to Argan Oil, this oil has a bit of nutty taste. It is one of the healthiest oils next to olive. What I love is that is has three times the Vitamin E than olive oil.
Mediterranean Gourmet Harissa Sauce. My husband was excited for this. These are zesty peppers ground with spices like coriander and cumin. We love those spices. I want to try this with some couscous or quinoa.
All-in-all it was a really nice box. Not sure yet how to incorporate the goodies into a recipe. But I promise, I’ll share with you when I do!

That sounds like an easy way to try something new – and I do love trying new foods. What a fun idea.
My Hubs and I both love to travel. I must have missed your Venice box, but that is where I want to go.
I see you got Sultan Sardines, if my hubs seen that.. he would be jealous.

That would be my Hubs Stacie. He loves food and trying new things. I tell him he lives to eat and I eat to live.
I used to get a monthly subscription for a food service and it really helped me try new things. This service looks like it would a great intro to different flavors and meal ideas.

Oh how fun to travel the world from home with good eats. Everything looks and sounds like something we would love. It would probably be the closest I’d ever get to Venice :).

Oh how fun! I didn’t know they had packages like this. Those sardines could be used in quite a few recipes.

When my kitchen remodeling is finished this sounds like a fun thing to do. I like experiencing new types of food and making dishes from other country.

How funny that I didn’t know Argan Oil was for eating too. I thought it was just a health/beauty product. I really shouldn’t admit these things out loud. 😉
Jocelyn McGaffic says
What a great way to try new foods from around the world. Never heard of this subscription before!
I’m such a picky eater that I don’t think I would enjoy this monthly subscription. It’s a shame too because I bet all the food tastes so good. I wish my taste in food could be more worldly lol.
Debbie Denny says
Sounds like some great products.Really neat subscription.
Betsy @ BPhotoArt.com says
Oh, this is really neat. Sounds like a great gift that keeps on giving… I have a friend who always gives her husband monthly subscriptions like this. Cool idea!

There are so many good stuff in the Marrakesh box. The sardines sound yummy and the Dip & Scoop Argan Oil is interesting – didn’t know that it can be used for breads too.

Someone needs to buy this for me. Great idea for a gift or for yourself. Being able to have a little taste of the world when actually going there is out of the budget is really cool.
This one is pretty affordable because it is only every other month.

I love the concept of this box. I think this particular country has an assortment of goodies that my Dad would appreciate more than I. He would especially enjoy the sardines.

This sounds like my kind of box. I love to try new products that I don’t normally find.

ahhh now this is my kinda box!!! Being a foodie I would love to have yummy new things to try out in my kitchen. Need to look more into this 🙂
Well I know someone who would love those sardines! I’d like to try everything but those. 😉

Whoa! I’ve heard a lot of different product subscription boxes, but the Marrakesh box is definitely the first I’ve seen. Unique and I’m very curious to try the products! Thanks for letting me know 🙂
Cool idea. We are always up for trying different foods and this kind of makes the decisions for you, which I struggle with!
I’m all things lemon and would be interested to try that! I will be waiting for you post about how the lemon turned out in your dish
I still haven’t quite decided what to do with it. I am thinking about putting it inside of a chicken and roasting it.
