Jump to a question:
When will my order ship?
New orders ship within seven (7) days of order placement. During the holiday season (Nov. 27-Dec. 19, 2021), your box will ship within 3-5 days.
Subscriptions ship every three months from the first order. Subsequent boxes typically ship by the 10th of the month based on this schedule.
How long does it take for my order to arrive?
U.S. customers: Order by 12/19/21 for your package to arrive before 12/25/21. We ship exclusively via USPS Priority Mail, which has a 2-3 day delivery in the United States, based on region. We cannot guarantee delivery dates, only ship dates.
Canadian customers: Order by 12/01/21 for your package to arrive before 12/25/21. Canadian orders ship via USPS International Mail, but may take several weeks to arrive. We cannot guarantee delivery dates, only ship dates.
Update 12/11/21: The United States Postal Service (USPS) is still experiencing some delays across the country due to seasonal mail volume, staffing shortages, and policy changes. It's best to order early and allow extra time for your package to arrive, but we're seeing most packages arrive on time.
Where is my order?
When your order ships, you will receive a tracking e-mail with a USPS tracking number. That tracking number will show you your shipment's progress. If you created an account at checkout, you can check your order's progress here.
If you can't find the tracking e-mail and did not create an account, e-mail us and we will help you locate your package.
I have an allergy. Can I request a customized box?
We don't offer customized gift sets or boxes, but we do our best to steer clear of ingredients containing common allergens and irritants like peanuts. For your safety, we recommend that you read each individual ingredient label to make sure that specific items are safe to consume for your particular allergy.
What's with all the different packing material in my box?
We strive to limit our carbon footprint, and that includes reusing alongside recycling! Our boxes, inserts, and most packaging are purchased recycled, but we also rescue and reuse packaging from our vendor shipments so that even pesky plastics get a longer useful life.
Speaking of packing material, what do I do with this towel?
We're glad you asked! We wrap the ingredients in some of our gift boxes with an extra large, reusable, machine washable flour sack towel. These towels can be used as a substitute for cheesecloth, to cover doughs while they rise, as insulation for hot pans on countertops, or just for regular cleaning.
What can I expect in a cooking subscription box?
Each quarter we release a new box full of culinary goodies. You'll receive a selection of items ranging from spices to sauces to cooking oils and more. Each box contains ingredients made by food artisans across the United States and internationally. We focus on independent producers who make unique items so that you can expand your culinary repertoire while supporting small businesses!
Culinarie Kit is not a meal delivery service. Our boxes don't contain pre-portioned ingredients that can only be used once. We aim to give you a whole new flavor arsenal with which to create many different meals. As we like to say: We ship you inspiration, not instructions.

Are Culinarie Kit gift boxes vegan, kosher, or halal?
Most Culinarie Kit cooking gift boxes include zero animal products of any kind. While we are not certified vegan, kosher, or halal, we do our best to only include ingredients that everyone can enjoy. We encourage you to exercise your own judgement and check the individual product labeling to confirm acceptability for your specific diet.
The only box in our current roster that contains an animal product is our Lava Gift Box, which has one ingredient containing honey.
Can I make an exchange or return?
Due to the nature of food products, we do not accept any exchanges, nor do we offer refunds for orders that have already shipped, or for prepaid subscriptions.
