The First Mulled Wine of the Year & a New Gourmet Box!

Mulled WinePic by Franzi.

Yesterday, the X-Mas market opened. So, the mulled wine season has officially started. But why should I freeze outside to get my cup of mulled wine when I can easily prepare it in my comfy flat? Luckily, the November Gourmet Box arrived a few days earlier and surprised me with a bottle of Hungarian red wine that I used for my mulled wine recipe (see below). And here are the other contents of the current Gourmet Box:

effetto pralines … Chocolate is always a good idea!

Cookies by the kekswerkstatt … Individual cookies that taste nearly like home-made.

rosenfeines (rose jam) … I love everything with roses! Even jam …or turkish delight ;).

Darjeeling by Tee-Maass … I still have to try this one out, but it looks good.

Udvari Nobile Cabernet Cuvée 2012 … I have to admit that I didn’t like the pure wine that much, but as mulled wine it was perfect!

deli (food zine) … Looooved this. Filled with many fresh recipe ideas!

Matcha Yuzu Ginger Chocolate by Lauenstein … I always wanted to try out matcha chocolate! It tastes strange, but not in a bad way :).

Conclusion: The November Gourmet Box was the first box that I liked completely. It was filled with little treats (cookies/pralines/wine), new taste experiences (matcha chocolate) and fresh ideas (deli zine). Now I cannot await the next box :).
