What you get: Each monthly box comes with three to four spice packs (four to six servings) from a specific country or region, four to six local recipes, a sheet of fun cultural facts, and a music playlist featuring artists from the region so you'll basically feel like you're halfway across the world when you're really just in your kitchen making dinner. Past recipes and spices include m’hammara (a sweet, savory, and spicy dip made of red bell peppers, olive oil, and walnuts), Moroccan veggie tagine, aloo tikki with mint chutney, and lavender French madeleines.
Who it's great for: Anyone with dietary restrictions (the recipes include vegetarian (a majority of the cards come with vegetarian-friendly swaps), pescetarian, gluten-free options) as well as eaters who want to take their tastebuds on a culinary adventure.
Price: $20/month (that price goes down if you prepay for a subscription of six months or longer) through Spice Madam's website or Cratejoy.
What else to know: Orders ship the second week of the month, and you have until the last day of the month to sign up for the next month's box. Spice Madam offers a gift subscription and has a spice store on their website so you can repurchase individual spices. A portion of all proceeds go to charitable organizations that support children through education.
