Chef Ludo is one of the newest Quarterly curators. A little more about Chef Ludo from Quarterly:
Chef Ludo Lefebvre—one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Chefs” and mastermind behind Trois Mec, the highly rated Los Angeles restaurant—will send you his favorites in food and food preparation.
This box was sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Chef Ludo Lefebvre for Quarterly
The Cost: $50 a box
The Products: Chef Ludo’s favorite cooking tools and supplies.
Ships to: US and Worldwide.
Each Quarterly Box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included. This box is all about celebrating the holidays. (FYI – this box arrived well before the 25th, I’m just a little behind on reviews!)
In addition to the letter, Ludo also included recipes for Pain D’Epices and Burgundy Escargots.
Ludo Lefebvre Spice Blend Mix
Paper Loaf Pans
These items were included for the Pain D’Epices recipe. The spice mix is a blend of orange peel, lemon peel, cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg, cloves, sea salt and cumin.
The holidays of my youth were spent eating lots of homemade pizzelles, so the anise in this mix smells just like Christmas to me!
Le Grand Miel French Honey – 500 g Value $15?
This honey was also included for the spice bread recipe. The recipe calls for 3/4 cup honey, so there will be plenty left over for more bread or anything else!
Sambonet Party Forks – Value $40
These were included for the Escargot appetizer. They are stainless steel and dishwasher safe, so I know I’ll use them.
Voluspa Crisp Champagne Candle – Value $16
This candle is made from a coconut wax blend, and the scent is sweet but not too sweet. I like a lot, and I was actually expecting the retail value to be higher!
Verdict: I think this is a very thoughtful holiday entertaining box. I’m not sure on the values of the spice mix or paper bread pans, but I think it is safe to say this box is worth at least $75, probably more.
