My box contained a card introducing me to this month’s featured country- Portugal!

The inside of the card revealed that this month’s dish is Camarão a Moçambique.

Kitchen Table Passport sends A LOT of supplemental materials in every box, and they always include a bundle of cards that highlights different aspects of the featured country.

These cards provide information about everything from food and culture to location and geography.

The cards are beautifully printed and provide a lot of fun info!

Every box also contains a card outlining the month’s chosen mementos.

This month’s first memento is a wine cork because half of the world’s annual cork production comes from Portugal.

I also received a hand crafted paper flower.

I think it’s so pretty, and I love the monochromatic look of it in this small red vase. (You may recognize the vase from the May 2015 POPSUGAR Must Have Box!)

Every month, Kitchen Table Passport sends a recipe and spice from the month’s featured country.

This month’s recipe is for Camarão a Moçambique, a spicy Portuguese shrimp dish made with white wine, lemon, shallot, and parsley.

The spices for this dish came packaged in a small pouch.

I love peel and eat shrimp, and this recipe was pretty tasty. I liked the flavor of the spices, and the sauce was rich and tangy. I cut back on the cooking time for the shrimp, though, because I felt the needed far less time.

I served the shrimp with a chopped salad and some slices of French bread.

Verdict: I always have a lot of fun with Kitchen Table Passport, and I really enjoyed this month’s meal. While I haven’t put a valuation on the spice mix or the mementos, I think it’s obvious that they do not reach the $25 cost of the box. This subscription is clearly all about curation, and I have to say that Kitchen Table Passport’s curation is spot on. The emphasis of this subscription is definitely on creating a memorable learning experience, and I think this subscription would be an incredible way to get kids engaged in geography and world cultures. I know I would have loved exploring a box like this with my family when I was younger!
