I really love being able to do these recipes with my daughter at home, it’s so fun exploring with her and so different from what I do at the studio.

My 10 year old son was really excited to try this and share it as a family. It was really great!

what is a gastronaut?

Gastronauts are explorers of exotic & extraordinary foods from all around the world.
Gastronauts seek adventure, celebrate the food of the world & make new discoveries everyday!

Global dishes share many foods in common and our recipes all have foods your gastronaut will recognize. We carefully craft kid friendly spice blends to add flavor, not heat.

Follow us on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter to learn more about what country we're celebrating.  All  food photos will be posted on these platforms, so make sure to join the conversation and tag your dishes for a chance to be featured!

Get Started


Where are your spices from?

Our spice blends are purchased from suppliers in the USA & pack all spice blends in a commercial kitchen. We proudly purchase organic, fair trade & non GMO & kosher spices when possible & will list that right on our packs. Most of our recipes are vegetarian, but you can add any protein and omit/substitute any animal products for a vegan option. We always strive to make each recipe nutritionally balanced.

What if my family doesn't know how to cook?

Our cooking boxes are a great opportunity for families to learn how to cook together. Everyone has a different learning style, so we offer simple step by step instructions with pictures, basic cooking terms & safety tips. Instructional videos will be coming soon!

Cooking as a family is not only a great bonding experience, but can help tackle picking eating habits & encourage healthy choices. Giving kids responsibility in the kitchen can empower them to try new things & become adventurous little foodies. We know it's not always that simple, but adventurous eating takes time, practice & patience. We're always here to cheer you on!

We want your experience in making global foods a fun, simple & quick adventure, so please don't hesitate to email us, even if it's during the middle of making dinner!

I just ordered a cooking box, how am I billed & when will I get it?

Congrats on becoming a Global Gastronaut and welcome to the family kitchen adventure!

Let's go over the ordering process

First, if you place your order before the 20th (5pm Eastern Time), you will be billed immediately and will receive this month's box, yay! Next, you will be re-billed on the 30th for the following month's box. Rebilling occurs on the 30th of each month.

If you place your order after the 20th, you will not get this month's box, but will be billed immediately for the following month's box.

All boxes are sent out between the 21st-23rd and should arrive in 2-7 business days. If you need an immediate gift, we suggest purchasing a gift card.

Return/Cancellation Policy

Boxes that have been shipped out cannot be returned, but you can cancel your subscription anytime (although we'd be sad to see you go). If you received this month's box, we will cancel your subscription, issue necessary refunds (for prepaid subscriptions) and you will not receive any further orders.
