Unboxing: Food We Love box “Grand Food Bazar” + recipes

Heeello! Today I thought I’d try something different: Unboxing a Food We Love box. The reason why I do this is because I’d like to see if I can write posts in different styles. 

I will be showing you the content of the box I received for my birthday (thanks boyfriend!) and even better: I’ll add recipes I found online that I would like to try and cook with these ingredients.

For those of you who are not Dutch: Food We Love is a company that sells boxes filled with special food items in a certain theme. For example, I once ordered a box for my boyfriend that was filled with Mediterranean foods such as snacks, drinks, pasta made with red wine etc. It’s food with a story, sometimes from smaller companies and selected with care. I’m mostly a fan because you can order a box every month and it’s like unwrapping presents: you don’t know what you get until it’s there!
