Hamptons Lane curates an amazing monthly box of artisan foods, kitchen tools, and serveware for the food lover. Boxes are $47/month and are revealed at the beginning of every month. Boxes are created around a monthly theme, such as Southwestern Fiesta, Summer Cocktail, The Best of BBQ, Coastal Italy, etc. Unlike most subscription boxes, you can skip the box if it doesn’t interest you during the first five days of that month.
Hamptons Lane generally ships in the second half of the month and I believe it arrived via USPS this month.
This box was heavy and big! Hamptons Lane sends out so many different products so you never really know what kind of box you’ll receive from them. Sometimes it’s the teal Hamptons Lane branded box and sometimes it’s just a plain brown box.
The June 2015 Hamptons Lane theme was Modern Moroccan and included the following items:
~Ras El Hanout Spice Blend from RawSpiceBar: I actually receive RawSpiceBar each month to review and was excited to see them in here! This is a North African spice deemed crucial to Moroccan cooking. You can use it a rub, on salads or to season a tagine.
~Israeli Couscous from Nuts.com ($3.99): This is going to last us ages! Hamptons Lane selected Israeli couscous because it pairs so well with for tagine meats and sauces. I don’t know that I have ever tried Israeli couscous, but we will be soon.
~Artisanal Moroccan Harissa No. 1 from Villa Jerada ($10.99): Harissa is used a base for tagine cooking or as a garnish to add spice. I know we have had it in other meals, but I cannot remember what. As soon as things settle down around here and B is home for more than two minutes, we’ll get making some of the recipes in the booklet.
~Handmade Ivory Ceramic Tagine by Le Souk Ceramique ($25.70): Hamptons Lane does the best job of sending usable kitchen tools and gadgets that we don’t already have in our house. Tagines are intended for use on stovetops (gas, electric or glass) and are used to prepare savory dishes and stews that involve slow cooking. You do have to season it before use, but Hamptons Lane included directions on the back of the information booklet.
I didn’t have prices on everything in this box, but my rough calculations show that the value is just about the cost of the box. And, of course, I don’t include shipping in any of my prices. I really liked this box. It was so different than anything we already have at home and it will be fun to test out some of the recipes in the booklet.
