Products | Bite Magazine’s Summer Bite Box : Stephen Jones Favorites
Bite Magazine is excited to release the second edition of its popular Bite Box program featuring selections from Chef Stephen Jones of The Larder + The Delta and Desoto Central Market. The customized collection showcases goods produced by Arizona makers. Jones’ selections bring to mind a summertime picnic with a loaf of artisan bread, cheese, honey, two spectacular caramels and even juice, tea and a candle.
Each quarter, Bite Magazine asks an outstanding local to appoint a Bite Box with 8-10 of their favorite Arizona-made goods. These aren’t just mini-sized teases of regional components. Instead, they’re everything from hearty loaves of bread and large bottles of barbecue sauce, to T-shirts, tote bags and home décor items—everything intended for you and your friends to partake of the best Arizona has to offer.
“Our curators are on the forefront of Arizona’s makers community,” said Michelle Jacoby, publisher and editor-in-chief of Bite Magazine. “The Bite Box is a way for them to share their discoveries of amazing local products with us and our readers.”
Each Bite Box consists of 8-10 full sized quantities of locally made foods and commodities. The cost is $65 (plus tax) for an individual release or $180 (plus tax) for a subscription to the remaining three editions for 2017.
