About Global Grub

Whether you want to learn the art of sushi making, earn homemade mochi bragging rights, or delight others with personalized fortune cookies, Global Grub will guide you along your cooking adventures. Our globally-inspired DIY cooking kits focus on handcrafted, extraordinary meals and treats. Each kit comes with the specialized non-perishable ingredients, unique cooking tool(s), detailed instructions and a shopping list for fresh/basic items (home cooks use their favorites to make it their own). Global Grub’s DIY kits are all about creating memorable cooking experiences with your loved ones, making them great for date nights, dinner parties, family fun and experiential gifts. Our mission is to bring people and cultures together through the art and joy of cooking. We believe cooking is a love language, and wonderful way to honor and celebrate cultures and diversity.
