Hey everyone! So as most of you know I’m from the beautiful islands of Trinidad and Tobago and cooking is near and dear to my heart! I use a wide array of spices and seasonings, a lot of which I can only get in Trinidad. Since I’ve moved to California 12+ years ago, I’ve searched and searched for Caribbean stores where I can purchase the items I need, but with no success. I’ve only found one place and it’s 3 hours away and that’s so inconvenient!
Then CALLALOO BOX came into my life and made everything better! Callaloo box is a new U.S. based subscription box service featuring seasonings, marinades & hot sauces from the Caribbean twin-islands of Trinidad & Tobago. The founders are 3 girlfriends who are all immigrants from Trinidad currently living in the U.S. and Canada. Each month the box will contain different products considered to be cornerstones of Caribbean cooking.
Their aim is to get these products into the hands of anyone interested in Caribbean cooking that live in the U.S. and don’t have easy access to them, or anyone who simply loves food, cooking and experimenting.
A special discount code NATASHA5 is available to my followers for $5 off of their 1st box when signing up for a month-to-month subscription!!
They currently only offer U.S. deliveries but are actively working towards launching deliveries to Canada next year.
When you receive the box, you will see that it includes an info sheet describing the main ingredients in each product along with some uses and helpful tips.
You can check them out and subscribe on their website at www.callaloobox.com or follow across social media (IG, FB & Twitter) at the handle callaloobox.
Here’s my dinner of bodi *Chinese long beans*, cucumbers and kuchela, which I received from the callaloo box!! It’s a spicy mango condiment that adds so much flavor to your meal!
