Our Next Food Destination: Welcome to Greece!

Picturesque and incredibly historic, Greece plays an integral part in both the history of the world and the history of food. Greek food is healthy and nourishing, and many of its flavors are rooted in the country’s terrain, which is made up of rocky cliffs along the Mediterranean with ancient olive trees, raw honey, and fresh herbs (not to mention, feta)! With such a bright and healthful cuisine, let our Greece Box transport you to this beautiful place!

What’s inside the Greece Box?

From honey-sesame bars called pasteli to rosemary-infused olive oil, this box comes with 8 products that are made in Greece. Our inspiration came from the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, which has made Greek food so famous.

This box includes tzatziki mix, hand-stuffed dolmas, a spicy pepper sauce with feta, breadsticks, Greek cookies called kourambies, and trahana, which is a type of Grecian pasta. These products are just the beginning of exploring Greece! With the Culture Guide, you’ll be able to discover more interesting facts and stories behind our products.
