We adore Mexican, Tex-Mex and Southern American food, so imagine our delight at finding Packit Gourmet of Austin, Texas. “Our roots are in the deep South regions of the United States; but our travels have exposed us to flavours worldwide,” says Packit Gourmet co-founder Sara Welton. “That being said, most of the flavours you’ll find in our meal offerings are inspired by our own home-cooking experience and the comfort foods that we enjoy best ourselves.” We’re wild about their flavours; we continue to work our way through the range and are yet to find a dud. We regard Packit Gourmet as our premium freeze-dried range. Only downside: the food miles! We apologise for that, and the freight costs that go with it, but urge you to give this wondrous lightweight food a try.
