All-American Picnic Tasting Guide

Celebrating American craftsmanship, this curated assortment features all-American delights that capture the essence of Summer. From aromatic coffee to flavors of blueberries and strawberries, this spread is perfect for a beautiful summer picnic.

A Message From Our Curators:

We work with small-scale artisans to bring you premium tasting experiences. Due to limited production from these artisans, our curators create several variations of each spread and items in each box may vary.

Our tasting guide includes all the items handpicked by our curators, though not every item will be found in your box. Since premium meats and cheeses take months to age, we can't always restock select ingredients to meet demand, meaning this guide may also grow and change over time.

This approach ensures you enjoy the finest, hand-selected artisanal products. There are endless possibilities for creating exceptional flavor pairings, so rest assured whichever variation you receive will be as thoughtful and delicious as the next!
