Set to serve intimate parties of four, the lineup for May through August highlights delectable entrees from destinations many people include on their travel checklist, including:

  • Hawaii The "Hawaiian Spring Getaway" box offers a taste of the islands, complete with shoyu chicken (or fish or pork, your choice) and curried rice with pineapple and spiced sweet potatoes using authentic spices and seasonings like Kona coffee;
  • Greece Go "Greek Island Hopping" with this box, which includes fresh flavors that blend classic, healthy Mediterranean fare with savory spices;
  • Korea Called "Kimchee a Go Go" for good reason, with bold Bar-B-Que and deliciously hot rice;
  • Spain What "Summer Paella Party" would be complete without this perfectly seasoned rice specialty? Instead of burgers or dogs, you may want to make room on the grill for a paella pan!
