nonna box, subscription box, italian, italian food, food, recipes, rissoto, mushroomsI have always wanted to try different foods from around the world but since I don’t travel I haven’t been able to. Until now.. Just recently I had the pleasure of receiving and making a delicious recipe from the Nonna Box that was sent to me for review. 

Nonna Box: Is an Italian food subscription service that delivers every month a box of Italian imported products, recipes and stories from local Italian nonnas and wine pairings from an Italian sommelier.

My box arrived fairly quickly and was packaged well. It was really sweet opening the box and finding an envelope that had MY name written on it making it more personal and thoughtful.

My box included Acacia honey, Zambajone Moscato Cream, Fizzy Italian Soda Elderflower Flavor, Dry Porcini Mushrooms, Foglie di Mais Corn Cookies and Carnaroli Rice.

Now when I got my box and noticed the recipe on the back I have to say I was a little leery. I do NOT like mushrooms whatsoever so I had thought that when I made this meal I would not be able to enjoy any of it. Which of course made me a little sad, because here I am receiving a great box to review but do not like mushrooms which is called for in the recipe.

The recipe I made was called Risotta with dried mushrooms, it was a little process from start to finish but I did enjoy the aromas of the kitchen as I was making it. When it was all done I figured since I had spent that time making it, I should give it a try just to see.. Now remember I am one that does not like mushrooms but I have to be honest I really enjoyed the Risotta with dried mushrooms and would definitely eat it again! 😉 

If you’re looking to try delicious new Italian products without leaving your kitchen I think you would love trying a Nonna Box!

  • I’ve tried different kinds of subscription boxes and thoroughly enjoyed each one. I would love to give Nonna’s a try too.

  • I have never received a Nonna Box, in fact I didn’t even know this subscription service existed. I love finding new ones to try.

    SUCH an incredible idea! I love this! My grandma is very Italian and always cooks, but when she’s visiting Italy I could use this to pretend she IS here haha!! Love it – great idea!

    what a unique idea to try different foods. You’re braver than I, tho…I just can’t handle a mushroom or the thought of it. I’m afraid they would have been substituted, or my guys would eat it.

  • Rachel Akers

    What a great idea for trying new foods. Risotto is one of those dishes that takes awhile but is so worth it.

  • Melanie Smith
