Mantry American Artisan Foods

Mantry (the Modern Man’s Pantry) is an innovative food-of-the month club that helps one discover American Artisan foods and what to do with them. Each month’s box is packed full of gourmet foods that can be sampled alone or used to create one of the delicious recipes found on the Mantry site. Even the packaging is eclectic and cool, a small, handmade wooden crate with a simple rustic look.

The box my husband received was the Coffee and Smoke, and it included six full size products made by small companies using both smoke and coffee in the process – two of America’s oldest vices.  My husband loves both coffee and smoked foods so I knew he would get a kick out of this month’s Mantry box!
