Recently, Kitchen Trotter launched their monthly country subscription kit. They aim to bring the global cuisine experience to every UK household. This is a French start-up with a successful Kickstarter campaign under its belt; Kitchen Trotter will allow their cooks to create recipes from the four corners of the world with great and exotic produce.
Founded in 2012 on the passion of three French entrepreneurs Pierre-François Lotiron, Aicha Mansouri & Kenza Hachimi from different backgrounds, sharing their love of cooking, the best memories of their travels and the flavours they discovered.
Each month, Kitchen Trotter kits offer a culinary journey through a menu full of mystery, delicious products and authenticity. In their kits, subscribers learn how to cook the traditional recipes of a surprise country. Kitchen Trotter also offers tailored subscription with kits accessible to every budget starting from £29,99. To subscribe to Kitchen Trotter, visit www.kitchentrotter.co.uk
I have received this surprise box last week and this is me unboxing the package.
This month’s theme is Indonesian food. I love their authentic design box. Inside it contains 7 ingredients and a 3 minute hourglass. It is very well packed and secured. The label on the ingredients reflected the original names (Indonesian) rather than in English. I did struggle a lot to know what’s what and had to keep referring back again and again! They do explain the ingredients in detail though which helps me to learn too!
The kit comes with one starter, two main courses and one dessert recipe. In the booklet, it also comes with your essential shopping list to cook your meal.
This month’s starter is gado-gado which is one of my favourite dishes! I love peanut sauce! If you are allergic to peanuts then this is not suitable for you! This is a cold salad dish which is easy to make!
Next, it comes with two main courses which are Mie Goreng and Ayam Areh. I enjoyed cooking both and would definitely cook Ayam Areh again! It is like a coconut curry! It was very delicious and went down well with all the family! They also provided plenty of ingredients for me to try this dish again and again.
Lastly, we had the Kue Dadar Gulung for dessert. They are a pandan flavoured coconut filled roll. I am not a big fan of grated coconut so I swapped it to for a peanut filling instead! As this is my first time making this dessert, I struggled cooking the crepe but after a few practices I think it looked alright! The trick is to not to make a thick crepe and try to spread out the mixture thinly. Then it should wrap up nicely.
I love that this enables me to cook meals from around the world with easy to access ingredients. To be honest, I would have no idea where to get those ingredients and this saves me the hassle of having to look for it! Also this inspires me to try out different cuisines at home.
