why heirloom mail?



In our fast-moving, modern world, it’s common to feel disconnected—from the origin stories of our foods, from the lands and people that produce them, and even from the sensation of making something with our own hands. Often, learning about food and cooking can feel overwhelming because there’s SO much information to sift through.

Wouldn’t it be great to slow down, learn at a pace that allows us to fully integrate the lessons, and take a bit of time out each month to marvel at the wonder of food?

we think so, too and  That’s why we make Heirloom Mail.

Our monthly food club subscription breaks down big cooking concepts into digestible lessons for delicious, graceful home cooking—the kind we so often see practiced by our elders, who are rooted in a foundation of deep knowledge. We include the special ingredient so you can start experimenting in the kitchen right away.

Through photographs, words, and art, we connect you with stories of food traditions around the world, and inspire you to strengthen traditions in your own kitchen and community.

feedback from our subscribers:

"Every month is a new way to dig deeper into food culture."

"Big cooking concepts are broken down into fun lessons that can be easy understood and practiced."

"I love the photography, words, and art that connects the secret ingredient to the people and places surrounding it!"

Anthony & Leila

The Recipe Hunters 

Leila and Anthony travel the world documenting and recording grandmothers' personal stories and heirloom recipes through photo-journalism, films, and writing. 

Along their journeys, The Recipe Hunters scout out incredible ingredients from across the globe which Gina uses to curate one-of-a-kind food adventures. Along with her own experiences, Gina uses cooking tips, tricks, and words of wisdom that The Recipe Hunters have collected from a worldwide community of Grandmothers.

Just think of The Recipe Hunters as the explorers and photographers and Gina as the storyteller and researcher!


All of this wisdom, love, and expertise is bundled together into our Heirloom Mail Box. Together, we hope that this journey inspires you to open up an culinary world of food knowledge, exploration, and sharing.
