Amanda and Merrill of Food52 are masters of the kitchen. But in summer, a kitchen isn’t always where a foodie wants to be; stoveside laboring in June isn’t quite so pleasant as in January. The great outdoors, however, beckons. #F5205 was aimed squarely at picnic season.
The box featured jamón ibérico, a connoisseur’s aged Spanish ham——made from black Iberian pigs——that pairs perfectly with summer wine (they suggested sparkling white or chilled Fino sherry). Amanda and Merrill also added a recent discovery: MyDrap tear-off linen napkins. They explained:
“What happens when you cross convenience with class? When we go on a picnic or eat outside, we don’t want to resort to paper towels, but we also aren’t going to bother with a good linen napkin that can get stained or lost. Now we have our secret weapon.”
