Martini Gans’l

This Austrian kit includes one of our featured flavors for the month… Mugwort
Typically served with goose this dish can also be prepared with chicken and because we had most of the ingredients on hand, we decided to complete this recipe for the month. We also received tea bags to put the Mugwort in.

Okay so what next?

First we salt and peppered our chicken and placed them in a dish skin side down
Next we used half our packet of Mugwort (we received enough for 2 dishes)
Then we top with our oranges
And our apple
And our onion (we also realized at this point we’d need a larger dish so we did that as well). Then we tossed it in the oven.
In the meantime we began our gravy – you complete your gravy with the sauce you create in your chicken dish (this is a completed photo)
And a few minutes before we pulled the chicken we started our gnocchi
Our finished product was a rich and unique dish with tons of flavor!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation and presentation. The Spice Breeze Subscription is a great way to increase your cooking skills and also improve your palette! We enjoy the blends and recipes that we receive each month. The presentation is great, everything arrives perfectly. The quality is awesome – all these small batch and organic spices are super flavorful! And curation – we love that each package includes recipes from different regions and nothing ever feels overdone! It’s so unique and fun!
