Quarterly Co. Chef Ludo Lefebrve #LLQ03

Quarterly Co. is a slightly different kind of subscription box company.  The way it works is you pick a contributor you would like to receive a curated gift from anywhere from $50-$100 and every 3 months you will receive your item in the mail from them.  With each gift you receive the story behind it. This box is from Chef Ludo Lefebvre who is often credited for revolutionizing fine dining in Los Angeles. Before the age of 30, Ludo had been named one of the World's 50 Greatest Chefs by Relais & Chateaux. I love food and cooking so this box sounded like it would be a great match for me. The cost of this box is $50.00 per quarter with shipping included.

Price $50 every 3 months. Option to purchase a one time box available for $50 plus $5-$8 shipping.

The good:

Variety: There are lots of different curators to choose from.

Something different: This is definitely different from other subscription companies

Commitment issues? Don't want to make a monthly commitment but still want a treasure?  You can get a quarterly treasure. 

The not so good:

Don't like waiting: If you don't like waiting this may be torture for you. 

This is the complete Quarterly #LLQ03 box. 

Wouldn't this make a cute gift? 

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Le Creuset Fluted Flan Dish. Value = $30.00 - love, love, love!!!

King Arthur Flour Classic Pie Crust Mix. Value = $5.95

Ludo Lefebvre Spices Ras El Hanout. Value = $6.66

Ludo Lefebvre Spices Lemon Pepper Salt. Value = $6.66

Chef Ludo's Recipe for Lamb with Ras el Hanout. 

The approximate value of this box is $49.27.  I had the hardest time finding the Le Creuset dish. I kept finding it for sale on European websites but not American which was strange because I know I've seen this pan in American stores. Turns out in America they call it a tart dish and in Europe they call it a flan dish. Amazing what one little word can do. I have a small collection of Le Creuset cookware and most of it is red so this dish matches perfectly and I don't already have one. Yay me! I'm also a fan of King Arthur flour products but haven't tried their pie crust mix yet. The Ludo spices come in a set of six and can be ordered online. I now have 4 of the 6 so I'm super excited about that AND I've never heard of Ras el Hanout before so I'm anxious to try it. I also love that he includes a recipe especially since I've never heard of this spice before. The only issue for me is a don't like lamb (I know, I know I'm a terrible foodie) but I think ground pork might make a nice substitute. 

Verdict: I'm really enjoying Ludo's mailings. I would love to try his restaurant someday.
