Picture this, July of 2020: distressed with the inability to frequent my local markets of various culinary traditions, I resort to a subscription box I heard of on a favorite podcast. Not expecting much, having lived through the tech company "box craze" of the oughts/teens, I open my first box to be pleasantly surprised! Rancho Gordo beans? Heritage grains? Sumptuous sauces? Grits of all colors and origins? The tinned fish of my dreams? At this moment I immediately about-faced, from being a skeptical subscriber to an evangelical enthusiast! Honestly, the only downside was it felt overly extravagant to indulge in such delicacies in a year of ascetic withdrawal and stoic endurance. I was cheating, and it was delicious.
...what, you don't dream of tinned fishes?
Get on this, it's dope.
We’ve been looking for some of these spices and it’s awesome we can finally use our Ethiopian cookbook.
I always love the boxes and spend the month until the next one trying out new ways to cook and enjoy everything that just arrived!
I find Ethiopian spices new and quite interesting. Like all new spices I enjoy going online and seeking recipes so I can try out the new spices. It’s also great way to learn more about a culture.
I'm from Spain, and really enjoyed this bundle. Everything was super high-quality, and I was able to make a bunch of different pintxos that reminded me of home.
Opening Ben's boxes as a family has become one of the things we look forward to most as a family each month. Everything's put together so thoughtfully, and it's all so tasty. Highly recommended!
Keep it coming! Sichuan was our favorite so far.
I hate meal kits, but I love Ben to Table, because the subscription gives me the freedom to cook how I like, when I like.
I have been surprised and delighted by how much I love BenToTable and how much joy the shipments bring me each month. Your ability to find interesting producers and curate regional foods has brought me plenty of inspiration in the kitchen. I think the dry goods/Ben's tastes subscription is such a great concept, and you execute it really well. You've also opened my eyes to how I should be investing as much attention into my dry goods as I do with my produce, meats, etc. Thankfully all of your products have a long shelf life, so I don't have to worry about getting too much :)
I love to cook, yet found myself cooking the same foods over and over. Ben’s boxes have introduced me to new flavors and flavor combinations and I have gotten creative again.
I live in a rural area with no ethnic markets. I find on-line markets
confusing when trying to discern what herbs, spices and condiments to
buy when I want to try something new. Ben’s boxes do this for me as he
puts together tastes of the world with suggestions on how to use them.
I absolutely love Ben to Table. I get the vegetarian Ben to Table box each month. I find myself waiting with anticipation to see what country is showcased and what will be in the box. Trying new ingredients each month during these difficult times provides some fun and a change when you can easily get into a cooking rut. Plus there is enough food in these boxes that you might be able to skip a trip to the store. Thanks Ben, you had a great idea
I have to say that after trying several of the Ben to Table, Taste of
the World, and Pantry Essentials boxes, I have enjoyed the high quality
items and different flavor profiles that you provide in each box. It has
added another dimension of joy in cooking different delicious dishes.
One of the things that I really enjoy is trying different foods when I
travel, and it has been amazing to be able to try flavors from other
countries in my own kitchen. This is a picture of tabbouleh that I made
with the smoked sea salt from the Greece Ben to Table box - yum! Thank
you! // "You know, I don't normally like olives or canned fish, but the ones you've chosen for the boxes are delicious! Looking forward to trying more items. Thank you!"
I LOVE my first BentoTable Essentials box (and I ordered a few extras, Spanish tinned items in the Budget Friendly Starter Bundle). It's been a lifesaver and a lot of fun, too.
A little bit about how I found Ben2Table. It was the beginning of lockdowns/quarantine and I was on a hunt for Rancho Gordo beans. They were harder to find then toilet paper! I noticed Ben2Table included Rancho Gordo in the pantry essentials box so I decided to give it a try. I haven’t been going to the grocery store lately, so its been tough to find cool,new products. The pantry essentials subscription has allowed me to jazz up work from home lunches and dinners with really interesting products I otherwise wouldn’t have discovered. I’m loving the boxes, learning about new products and companies and also its a great activity these days. Super happy with my subscription!
I have loved the essentials box, I have been trying to get into cooking beans for awhile now and getting high quality delicious beans and a larger diversity of beans from the grocery store has been a game changer. I’m a line cook who often gets home late, and being able to heat up leftovers that are actually good at midnight has made my eating habits post-shift more delicious and much healthier!
