Chef Ludo Lefebvre Quarterly Subscription Box Review #LLQ01
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.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (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. For his first box, Chef Ludo picked out his BBQ essentials.
The last page of his letter included a Herbs of Provence Shrimp recipe.
Hedley & Bennett custom BBQ Mitt – Value $25?
DCS BBQ Spatula with serrated edge – Value $40
This BBQ Mitt is designed by Chef Ludo and exclusive to the box, so I’m estimating on the value.
I didn’t think I could be impressed by a grill spatula, but this one is SO heavy duty and well made! It’s definitely an upgrade for us.
Ludo’s Essential Spices in Meat Seasoning – Value $7
We have a lot of seasonings in the pantry right now thanks to a summer of subscription boxes, but fortunately these are good through 2016.
Grill Magazine – Value?
This is a cross between a magazine and an advertisement for DCS grills, so I don’t think it has a retail value. There are some recipes and other useful info in the magazine though.
And of course there are tips on how to build your DCS outdoor grill station! 🙂
Verdict: This box has a value of about $79. The items included were all very high-end, and the value is there, but I think I’m just not too excited about this box because I’m a little BBQ-d out thanks to a summer of subscription boxes. This definitely would have been a better box for us to get in June instead of September!
