Limited-edition collection of gourmet treats hand-picked by Michelin Starred Chef is great gift idea for foodies

GREENVILLE, S.C., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This holiday season, Michelin has teamed up with "Try the World" to create a special, limited-edition Michelin Guide-themed holiday box.

"Try The World" is an exciting online gourmet shop that delivers subscribers different monthly food boxes filled with gastronomic treats from locations around the world. In keeping with the festive season, the box is adorned with an eye-catching trio of the famed Michelin Stars on a brilliant red box that also harkens back to the color of the renowned "red guide" — as the Michelin Guide is affectionately known — that was first published in 1900 by the pioneering Michelin brothers, Edouard and Andre, who founded the world's leading tire brand.

Since that time, thanks to the rigorous Michelin Guide selection process that is applied independently and consistently in 28 countries, the restaurant guide has become an international benchmark in fine dining. Only the best of the best eateries have ever attained even a single Michelin star, and only about 120 restaurants worldwide currently hold what is widely considered the pinnacle of distinction in gastronomy: a three-star Michelin rating.

The Michelin themed "Try the World" gift box features a selection of eight culinary delights from across the globe specially selected by Thomas Raquel, pastry chef at the world-famous Michelin three-star restaurant, Le Bernadin in New York.

In this holiday box, Chef Raquel includes a traditional French holiday pain d'epice (spiced bread) mix with freshly milled, organic flour and a variety of baking spices. In the spirit of an inclusive holiday theme, he also brings us tasty holiday treats that include, among others, a date spread made by Yoffi in Israel and a traditional Luna New Year pineapple cake from Taiwan.

In addition, you will find a culture guide along with the chef's impeccable recipes for traditional holidays, including Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day and the Lunar New Year.

This special Michelin-themed "Try the World" Holiday Box is available for $39, but only through the holiday season while supplies last and only in the U.S. To purchase it, please go to http://michel.in/box.
