Includes Three Delicious Recipes
Mapo tofu (pronounced - ma po dou fu) is one of the most popular classic dishes from the Sichuan province in China. The dish was apparently named after a cook from Chengdu (capital of Sichuan province) whose face is full of pockmarks (acne scars) - "ma" stands for "ma-zi" for pockmarks. "po" stands for "popo", an old lady.
General Tso’s chicken
General Tso’s chicken originated from the Hunan province in China and is rumored to be named after Zuo Zongtang (pronounced Tso Tsungtang), a military leader during the Qing dynasty. Whether General Tso really ate this dish in his time, nobody knows!
Sesame ginger meatballs
These Asian-inspired chicken meatballs have become an eat2explore fan favorite! To make it easier, healthier and faster than the traditional way of frying, we broil the meatballs and then braise them in a soy-sesame-ginger sauce.

Why Families Love Us
Hear It From Our Customers
These kits are great, but.....
I found my first 2 kits in store at Kohls. The recipes are easy to make, the food is good; the only problem I have with these is you can't really make the recipes again unless you buy the kit again, (which I will not do), as the seasonings used in the kits are made up especially for the particular kit and can't be recreated as a person needs to know the amounts of each spice that makes up the seasoning.....
Fun delicious recipes
We had a nice time making the recipes and they taste great. One request is that the instructions could be a little bit clearer. We found that there were a couple of places that were missing comma's and that made a difference in understanding the recipe. So maybe a little more attention to detail on the recipe cards?
Love the Content, Ingredients Could Be Cleaner
We have really enjoyed using these monthly boxes to explore new tastes & learn about new countries & cultures. I was a little disappointed at the quality of several of the ingredients, though, as they contained fillers & artificial ingredients which are cheaper & less authentic. It also makes it harder when dealing with food allergies in the home.
We love this box! Once a week we cook as a family and make a meal from the months box. So far we have completed Sweden and Morocco - we just got South Korea. The recipes are delicious and start wonderful discussion in the kitchen and at the table.
Great family cooking!
Loved it, bought for my daughter, but even i enjoyed the cooking!
