Hatchery Tasting Box Review:
Here's what I received in my Hatchery Box:
Olivelle (Bozeman, MT) Pasta Rocks, $8 for Full Size
Whole Spice (Napa Valley) Granulated Honey, $7 for Full Size
Both of these products were completely new to me. The Pasta Rocks are made to season a pot of pasta water - you just drop one in the water for perfect seasoning made from Himalayan salt. The granulated honey is a way to achieve sweet honey flavor without the stickiness.
Rock the Roll (Philadelphia, PA) Ginger Sesame Barbecue Sauce, $8 for Full Size
Glossop's (Los Angeles, CA) Hibiscus Ginger Syrup, $16 for Full Size
East Shore Specialty Foods (Heartland, WI) Dipping Fudge, $6 for Full Size
Everything here is just a treat! For the Rock the Roll Sauce, a yummy looking recipe for Ginger Sesame Chicken Wraps was featured in the handy dandy Tasting Guide pictured below and the recipe itself was included on Hatchery's website. This was lucky because I had no idea what to do with the Glossop's Hibiscus Ginger Syrup, but the featured Outpost Drive Cocktail looks pretty yummy. In contrast, I am going to grab some strawberries and open up the Dipping Fudge from East Shore Specialty Foods.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Hatchery Tasting Box. I have to admit to shying away from boxes with sample sized items like this, but when it comes to the world of food, it can be so fun to discover new things from artisan brands I would likely never otherwise run across.
