Quarterly Co. Culinary Box #YUM03

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 subscription is for the Culinary box. Each shipment is curated by a different person in the food field. The last shipment was curated by Andrew Zimmern. This box was curated by Kristin Emi Rimback of sfbayareaeats.com. This box celebrates San Francisco recently named The Best Food City in the County by Bon Appétit and more importantly my home town. I couldn't wait to see what was in this box. 

This months box was curated by Kristin Emi Rimback. 

Price $50 every 3 months.

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. 

#YUM03 Treasures

13" x 19" seasonal fruit & vegetable poster


Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Ritual Roasters Whole bean coffee. Value = $16.50


1 oz. bag 4505 Meats Chicharrones. Value = $4.00

9 oz. jar SFQ The original San Francisco-Style barbecue sauce. Value = $7.00

(2) Alter Eco Sea Salt Truffles. Value = $0.80/ea.

YA.C Seasonal Vegetable Poster. Value = $20.00

Parabo Press code for 25 free prints w/app download. Value = $0 - new customers always get 25 prints free and this code is only valid for new customers. 

The approximate value of this box is $49.10. I was really excited to see the chicharrones. 4505 meats has some of the best chicharrones I've ever tasted. I was also already familiar with alter eco chocolates which were delicious as always. I am not familiar with the SFQ barbecue sauce but from what I read it's delicious. The most interesting and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it item in the box is the poster. It's not just a poster though. It's printed and embossed on chipboard with clear, white and gold foil colors. It's a gorgeous poster but I'll have to have it framed and I'm not quite sure where I will put it because it's quite large. 

Verdict: This box had a nice mix of items and the value was on point with the price paid.
