Yummy Bazaar includes an information booklet with every box that contains a breakdown of the items in the box.
There are also recipes that incorporate the items included.
French Potato Chips by Sibell- $4.95
These preservative-free chips are flavored with herbes de Provence, and I really like their fresh, herby flavor.
(Note: Several items in this box aren’t currently for sale on the Yummy Bazaar site. For those items, I’ve used the pricing information provided in the info booklet.)
The potatoes are ridged and have a nice, hearty crunch.
Organic French Ratatouille by Karine & Jeff (12.3 oz.)- $7.95
Ratatouille is one of my favorite summertime stews, and I love the way it showcases the lovely flavors of tomato, eggplant, and zucchini. Karine & Jeff’s version is delicious. I ate it over a little rice for a quick and tasty lunch, and I liked it so much I’m planning to pick up a few more jars.
Crêpe Mix by Francine (13.4 oz.)- $7.95
I loves crêpes, and they’re one of my favorite desserts to make when I have company. (I think it’s fun for guests to pick out their own fillings and toppings!) Crêpes are pretty easy to make from scratch, but this mix will be nice to keep on hand for occasions when I run out of flour or I’m short on time.
Palmiers Au Beurre by Fossier (4.4 oz.)- $8.95
Palmiers are baked slices of puff pastry. They can have up to hundreds of layers, which makes them delightfully flaky.
These are really good. They’re crispy, buttery, and delicious.
Dried Mixed French Mushrooms by Sabarot- $6.95
This is a mix of dried oyster mushrooms, black mushrooms, and porcini mushrooms that can be rehydrated in 3 minutes. Yummy Bazaar suggests using these mushrooms to make soup, but I also think they’d be delicious in pasta tossed with black olives, tomatoes, and fresh basil.
Crackers with Tomatoes and Espelette Pepper by Biscuiterie de Provence- $7.95
These small crisps can be served with cheese and cured meats, or used in salads. The flavor is nice, and I like the small size.
Salmon Rillettes with Lemon and Dill by Mouettes d’Arvor (4.4 oz.)- $7.75
Rillettes is similar to pâté and is often served on bread or toast. I decided to sample this product with the tomato crisps.
The rillettes was easy to spread and had a nice lemon flavor. It was a little too “fishy” for my liking, but my husband loved it.
French Honey Cake by L’Abeille Diligente (8.8 oz.)- $7.95
Despite the “Gingerbread” label, the dominant flavor of this cake is definitely honey.
This cake is tasty, and I think it would be delicious alongside a cup of tea.
Verdict: As always, I really enjoyed this box from Yummy Bazaar’s Destination Food Club. It’s one of my favorite subscriptions, and I’m always so impressed by the diverse selection of food they send. Altogether, the retail price of the items in this box totals approximately $60.40. That’s fantastic!
