Sometime back the husband-wife duo sent me a neatly packed king size food hamper for tasting & review.
Inside the hamper, each food box was neatly labelled with it’s name, packing date and time and the instruction to consume it within 4 hours of it’s despatch. The adhesive tape on each food box was marked with the words ‘with love’.
The food boxes primarily contained 1 dessert and 3 different preparations of rice and their accompanying vegetables/sabjis from 3 different cuisines, namely – Indian, Oriental and Mexican.
– Indian –
– Immunity Booster Protein Dal: It was the usual Kali Daal, albeit with much less oil and almost no butter. It was average in taste.
– Paneer Butter Masala: It was a spicy preparation of big cottage cheese chunks in gravy. It tasted nice.
– Veg Tehari With Raita: Infused with long slices of carrot, beans and zucchini, the rice preparation was mildly spicy, aromatic and tasted good. Raita was basically a concoction of curd and seasonings. It also tasted nice.
– Oriental –
– Khao Phad Thai Fried Rice With Oriental Gravy: Moderately infused with finely chopped veggies and relatively less seasonings, the rice preparation was good. Being not really accustomed to it’s taste, we did not use the Oriental Gravy.
– Chilli Paneer: Dunked in enough soya sauce concoction, the dish comprised of paneer aka cottage cheese chunks, onions and colored bell peppers. It tasted good.
– Mexican –
– Veg Gumbo: A gumbo is basically a stew or thick soup infused with meat, greens and veggies. But this Mexican style vegetarian Gumbo was made up of chopped carrot, peas, broccoli, colored bell peppers in a spicy and mildly sweet red gravy and steamed rice. The dish tasted good.
– Dessert –
– Dates Pancake: It comprised of 4 fried square pieces of ravioli styled thin flour sheets filled with mashed dates. The dessert tasted excellent.
The portion of each of the above mentioned dish was good enough for 2 people. In totality, the entire hamper was sufficient for 4-5 people.
All in all, it was a wonderful home styled meal presented in corporate style branding and packaging with due consideration for the environment.
