These days, when we’re sitting at the table, everything feels like a feast.
This was taco night last week, with roasted chicken, pickled red cabbage, snap peas out of our friends’ garden, and two little girls jumping on the trampoline while we brought the plates to the table. Any time the air is warm enough to sit outside, we’re happy.
We like to share feasts with you. I like to remind people — with the photos, words, and videos — that life gluten-free is nothing about deprivation. It’s about gatherings and good food and vibrant color, if you want. You choose. Choose the feast.
We’d like to share some of this with you in a different way.
GLUTEN-FREE GIRL AND THE CHEF + LOST CRATES
For months, we’ve been searching for a way to put our recommendations for food and favorite kitchen implements into your hands. It’s one thing for us to say here that we like a certain whole-grain cereal or new gluten-free cookie. But we’d love to extend that recommendation into your kitchen.
Enter Lost Crates.
Lost Crates is a lovely place. The folks there like well-designed things, good food, and sharing it with people. They find small start-ups, artists, and environmentally friendly businesses they like and offer their products to people who are seeking them out. It’s a gathering place.
We learned about Lost Crates from Joy the Baker, our friend who likes to surprise her readers with gifts. We found we liked them too.
So, we want to share with you.
how does it work?
If you subscribe to the Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef Lost Crates service, you will receive a box full of good gluten-free food. We hand pick everything that goes into that box. And we ensure it’s gluten-free, of course. A box will show up at your doorstep with great ingredients, implements, and recipes from us. You can open it up and start cooking.
how often do i receive a box?
That’s up to you.
You can subscribe on a monthly basis, a quarterly basis, and a yearly basis. (If you subscribe for a year, you save a lot of money.) Each box is $35 + $5 for shipping. We promise you’ll get your money’s worth.
what kind of boxes are you offering?
All gluten-free, of course!
Each month, we’re going to be organizing the boxes around a theme. September is a Pasta Night box. We’ll have some great gluten-free pasta, anchovies, capers, a recipe for pasta puttanesca, and some surprises.
We’re also planning a Pizza Night box, a Cookie-Baking Party box, a Best-of-the-Gluten-Free Products box, and many more.
(If you’re a gluten-free foods producer, we’d love to hear from you.)
We want to help you make a gathering around good food every month.
p.s. Jack just let us know that you will receive a $6 discount on your first crate with this code: GFGLaunch.
