Our latest Bespoke Post Box of Awesome, Seared, arrived today. This was one of the frequent occasions that I pick up a box for myself as opposed to my husband. Seared was created around cooking – one of my favorite activities.
If you are new to Bespoke Post, they generally release two or three boxes each month. You can choose which box you would like to receive, or opt not to receive one at all. Most months we skip unless they are exceptionally well suited to our tastes. Here were a few we had to choose from in May.
While Carry was straight up my husband’s alley, he has most of those items. As he was passing, I picked up Seared. This box was to include a Himalayan Salt Slab, Spatula and Sugar Set.
The salt slab can be used for grilling or as a serving plate. Your food will be infused with a light hint of salt. A few of the suggested cold uses: vegetables, cheeses, fruit, chocolate, caramel, sushi. For cooking you can use the block on the grill or gas range. I would recommend choosing your food items carefully if using on an indoor range as there is no lip on the block so any liquid will run off.
The block can be used at temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Thorough cleaning, cooking and storage recommendations are included with the box.
Also included with the May Box of Awesome:
WMF Butterfly Turner – Love this. It’s high quality and durable.
Sugar Set – These are made from cane sugars. The flavors included in my box were Sweet Onion and Habanero. Yum!
I’m super pleased I picked up this box. As always, the box was $45. The salt slab normally retails for $28.95, the turner around $24 and the Essential Cane sugars I would estimate at $3 each.
My box was rather beat up when it arrived and a small chunk of the salt block did break off when I lifted it out of the packaging. No huge loss there. As the insert stated, as the slab wears down and out you can grate it for using just as you would any sea salt. Therefore it certainly won’t go to waste and it isn’t going to make any difference when I am using it on the grill.
Several boxes are still available on Bespoke Post. Save 30% when using the code LONELY.
