How wonderful is cooking? Actually, let me rephrase that – once you’ve done all the cooking, how wonderful is eating? I have been entertaining quite a lot recently and love to provide my guests with delicious meals and snacks. I love to be able to support local businesses and producers, so when I do go shopping, I am always on the hunt for ethically produced, great tasting food, that I am and my guests are going to love..
If you’re a foodie like me, then you will squeal with delight at what I have stumbled across. I was recently introduced to uTaste, a monthly delivery service that connects you with delicious gourmet food products. From gourmet producers of chocolates, wines, macarons, coffee, teas, savory snacks, sauces and whatever else, your uTaste box will be beautifully packaged up and sent to you each month for just $29.00 (plus $5.50 for shipping).
I was sent my first ever uTaste box and was so excited to open it up and see what was inside!
