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.
