  • Date Nights: Skip restaurant crowds and/or get involved after the kiddos go to bed. Turn this date night in into a fun adventure, cooking side-by-side with some music and drinks within reach, of course! 
  • Dinner Parties: Serve your guests something new and exciting (and be confident that it'll turn out great!). Better yet, have your guests roll up their sleeves too... the Sushi Kit is particularly fun to make as a group. Check out How to Throw a Sushi Party.
  • Family Fun: Let your little ones act as your sous chef, exposing them to new experiences and flavors. If your kids love sushi, they will love to make it too! This is such a fun activity to do as a family, and it's easier than you think

  • Gifts: Need to get a gift for someone who likes to cook, eat and/or travel (or is impossible to get gifts for)? This isn't just your typical gift, it's an experience, a cooking adventure in a box! Global Grub Kits can be a small hostess gift (starting at $10) to a special occasion gift (like the Cook Your Way Around the World Gift Box  that's $64.99, plus free shipping) and everything in between. 
How else are you using your Global Grub Kits? 
PS - These illustrations were done by my mommy friend. Didn't she do a fabulous job!?!? It's always great to do business with friends. Thanks Amy!

How to Throw a Simple Tamale Party
How to Throw a Simple Tamale Party

global grub tamales

For many Mexican families, a tamalada (the Spanish word for “tamale party”) is synonymous with the holidays. Multiple generations gather around the kitchen to make a ridiculous amount of tamales, oftentimes in the hundreds. The tamales are shared and enjoyed with family and friends throughout the season, sometimes given as a gift (I accept!). Traditional rituals include the Grandma’s prayer to the tamales and Spanish guitar music in the background, to name a few.

To me, a tamalada is an excellent excuse to gather your crew for a memorable dinner party. The whole point of a tamalada is to enjoy the company of your friends while you prepare the tamales together. But, if hundreds of tamales seem a little much, rest assured you can host a simple tamale party on a more doable scale. I’m talking about a dinner party for 4-8 people to make 18-36 tamales. And you don’t have to be a tamale expert, and it doesn’t have to take all day. How’s how…

Tamale Kit Comeback (and filling ideas!)

My love of tamales prompted me to create the DIY Tamale Kit when Global Grub launched back in 2012. I know I might be a little biased but I still think it’s one of the coolest kits… I mean, how many people can say they’ve made their own tamales from scratch!? I was so bummed when I had to discontinue the DIY Tamale Kit in 2014, but it didn’t make sense to keep it “on the menu,” mainly because of some production issues with those pesky little cornhusks (examining each husk to ensure the dirt, bugs and imperfections that are so natural to produce weren’t passed on as a yucky surprise in the kit; it accounted for too much time and waste).

To my delight, my super awesome customers have expressed a longing for the return of the DIY Tamale Kit. They’ve said things like, “the tamales are absolutely delicious,” “the flavors are so authentic,” and “I would’ve never tried making tamales, if it weren’t for your kit”...
