I am so thrilled to introduce you to our French Cuisine Gift Box. The perfect gift for the Francophile Foodie. A collaboration between myself & Best French Forever, to bring a taste of Provence home. The French Cuisine Box is a curated selection of beautifully handcrafted, made in Provence items to enjoy in the kitchen.
The French Cuisine Box will take the recipient on a trip to “le marché” in Provence with French Cuisine essentials hand selected to bring “joie de vivre”.
Quantities are very limited and we will be stopping the sale of the gift boxes on December 9th. If this box is for you, don't delay!
I absolutely loved working with Cynthia Moos of Best French Forever. We have known each other over instagram for a while. Though we both live in different states (I live in the DMV, Cynthia lives in Colorado), we share the same love of all things Provençal and keeping that joie de vivre alive in the USA.
In creating the French Cuisine Box we thought of all the items that a Francophile Foodie would treasure. An exclusive, hand selected blend of Herbs de Provence to give the authentic taste of Provence to any dish. A blue and white striped handmade Linen apron . A mortar and pestle made of Provençal Olive wood. A small batch olive oil from Chateau d’Estoublon that will be the perfect finish to any recipe.
The French Cuisine Box gift set includes:
- Hand carved olive wood mortar and pestle by Provence Olivier
- Award-winning olive oil by Chateau d’Estoublon
- Blue & White Stripe Handmade Linen Apron
- Hand carved olive wood serving spoons
- Authentic Herbes de Provence blend by Le Chef’s Wife
- Ratatouille and Roasted Chicken recipes by Le Chef’s Wife
A thoughtful, memorable holiday gift for the Francophile, home cook or “hostess with the mostess” in your life.
The price of the box is $149 and includes shipping. It was important to us to offer exceptional value and uncompromising quality with each box. Truly a beautiful gift.
About our unique Herbes de Provence Mixture
Herbes de Provence is a classic herb mixture, made of herbs that grow abundantly in the South of France, that give a rich, Provençal flavor to any dish.
Le Chef's grandmother never bought a pre-made "Herbes de Provence", she always made it herself. Very different than the Herbes de Provence that you can buy in the states, Mamie's blend featured less oregano and gives a distinct flavor of the South of France. Herbes de Provence, Mamie's mixture, features Rosemary, Thyme, Summer Savory, Fenugreek seeds and Oregano in a delicate, masterful blend so that each herb brings flavor to the dish.
Le Chef and I had so much fun turning our dinning room table into an atelier of dried herbs, perfecting the mixture so that it was ready for you to enjoy.
Our Herbes de Provence are available only in the French Cuisine Box for the moment - it is an exclusive!

About Cynthia Moos - Founder of Best French Forever
Born and raised in a small village of Provence, Cynthia moved to the U.S. in 2014 to live with her love and now husband.
