The contents of the Degustabox December 2013

I was really excited by the concept of Degustabox and couldn’t wait to receive my first delivery.

Degustabox is a brilliant box delivery scheme, where you receive a box of foodie goodies each month for just £9.99 plus postage. Each box contains 17 items which have a value guaranteed to be more than the box price you pay.

December is the launch of Degustabox in the UK. It is already established in Europe.

I was pleased with the contents and genuinely thought it was good value for money.

I have taken part in foodie swaps before, where the participants spend £10 on foodie gifts, then post to their partner and have received fabulous things like homemade cookies and homemade vanila extract and dreadful things like a tin of tuna! Degustabox is a similar thing really, as for the same price, you get a box full of goodies that, for this month definitely, are really great and really great value, and no surprise element!!

The box comes with a card explaining the contents of the box and on the reverse are some examples of recipes to use some of the items found with the Degustabox.IMG_2731

So…here is what was in the box! It was a high quality and varied mixture that I have had fun trying out already.

I tried out one of the suggested recipes using the Oxo Shake and Flavour. My abridged version of the recipe is here:

Serves 3-4IMG_2759[1]

Cut 5-6 medium potatoes into wedges. Put into a bowl with about 2 tablespoons of semolina, 2 teaspoons of the Oxo Garlic and Herb Shake and Flavour, and 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil. Mix well. Spread onto a baking tray and bake at 200C for 30-40 minutes until they are cooked through, browned and crisp. Serve hot.
