Global Grub and Sur La Table Team Up to Bring Sushi Making Night to Homes Nationwide
WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Let the good times roll this holiday with the help of Global Grub, an ethnic food kit company that enables new cooking adventures, and its new strategic partnership with the ultimate cooking store Sur La Table.
Global Grub's DIY Sushi Rolls Kit is now featured at the "Merry Little Gifts under $40" display at Sur La Table's 100+ stores as well as the December catalog and online. The kit includes sushi rice, rice vinegar, nori, sesame seeds, wasabi powder and Little Soya™ soy sauce along with a bamboo rolling mat and easy-to-follow instructions to make eight homemade sushi rolls/48 pieces (kit retails for $22 each).
"Global Grub is ecstatic to partner with a company that's equally passionate about cooking," noted Carley Sheehy, Chief Global Grubber. "Sur La Table also happens to be one of my favorite stores! I know fellow Sur La Table shoppers will enjoy our Sushi Kit as a new fun way to cook together or as a unique experiential gift."
Global Grub was founded in 2012 by Carley Sheehy, an avid traveler and gourmand who wanted to duplicate the exotic flavors she experienced from around the world here at home. After going on ingredient scavenger hunts and stocking her cupboards with items that often went to waste, she was determined to find a way to make it easier for people to cook their way around the world in a stress-free way.
Each Global Grub DIY cooking kit includes non-perishable ingredients that are pre-measured to make award-winning Jerk Chicken*, Tagine, Tamales and recently launched Tikka Masala. Home cooks simply pick up a few fresh/basic items from their local grocer, allowing people to eat global while still buying local.
Food is not only Global Grub's passion; it is a fundamental need that is not being met, so helping the fight against hunger has always been an integral part of Global Grub's operation. For every kit sold, Global Grub donates a meal to someone in need through the Alameda County Community Food Bank, because they were startled by their neighbors' needs, and impressed with the food bank's immense impact.
