Flavors of the World box culinary adventure started with the beautiful country of Japan. The limited-edition founders box celebrated holiday in Japan just like the locals would.
The Japanese holiday season is a joyful time celebrated with loved ones and the excitement of the coming year, providing a fresh start. One of the most celebrated holidays in Japan is New Years, known as shogatsu. Various special dishes are served during shogatsu, one being OZONI, a soup made with mochi (Japanese: 餅, もち), a Japanese rice cake made of mochigome, a short-grain japonica glutinous rice. The other featured in the box is "Eho Maki" and it's a sushi with tradition that requires you to eat it whole for good luck. While subscribers enjoyed holidays like Japanese, they got to enjoy traditional music from the playlist we provided and followed step by step recipe videos included in the digital content for the box.
They also got to learn how to make origami with the supplied kit as well as played out local folk that says you should throw beans at someone wearing ONI mask equally for good luck.
