Love with Food September Review

I am still trying to catch up on some (very) belated subscription box reviews! 

I like the philosophy behind Love With Food (LWF) and I found a great deal on Rue La La, so I bought an additional 6-month subscription to LWF!


Love With Food

Contents: The September LWF theme was curated by Chef Ming Tsai. I seem to have lost the info card, so I don't know what the monthly theme was, but it was an entirely gluten-free box. It included 9 different items.
