Longing to travel again? Looking for new recipe inspiration? You’re in the right place! One of our team’s favorite ways to learn about new cuisines and flavors is through travel, and since we’re limited this year, we thought we’d try exploring in a new way.

The Official Lineup

- July: TBD (announced June 19)
- August: TBD (announced July 22)
Live Cooking Demos
Every Thursday at 11am PST, a different member from our team will be doing a live cooking demo on Instagram. Mark your calendar so you don’t forget, and join us there! On Sunday morning, we’ll send out an email announcing what the weekly live recipe will be (make sure you’re signed up as part of the cookbook club to receive these emails), so you’ll have time to gather your ingredients. If you’d like to cook along with us, great, or you may just want to pop in and see how it’s done!
Author Interviews, Ingredient Spotlights and More!
Each week you can expect a new email ranging from an introduction to the month’s cuisine, a great author interview, spice profile, product profile and more!
