cool food of the month subscriptions?

Looking for top quality food of the month type things ... something good as a wedding gift. Cheese, exotic fruit, chocolates, that sort of thing ... no booze, they don't drink. Quality stuff, nothing mundane ... Ideas?

    best present ever: Bacon of the Month Club from Gratefulpalate.com. Truly, the bacon was amazing and it made me sooo happy to get a fresh box each month.

      my sister got chocolate of the month from the company "vosque" ( SP?) it cost $500!!!
      i guess its really, really quality stuff though. she showed me the catalog and it looks absolutely to die for...tasty & different. i can get exact name if you need. they also have 3, 6, or 9 months too if you dont want to spend an arm & leg!

        Murray's Cheese has a cheese of the month club - I've not used it b/c I live in NYC - probably go there 2-3 times a month - wonderful cheeses and I would expect that they do a good job w/ shipping etc.

          I'm sure I saw a pizza-of-the-month club somewhere... I'd love that.

            Depending how much you're looking to spend, you could do a "Cooking Club of the Month" thing, where you figure out a local place that has cooking classes, and pay for a certain number of months, and allow the couple to choose their topics.

            I forget where but someone sent my mom an olive oil club thing, which she absolutely loved.

            Caviar of the Month if you went to shell out $$$

            Hickory Farms does a "gourmet basket" of the month.

            iGourmet does a Conneisseur's Club http://www.igourmet.com/shoppe/featur... which features different gourmet items from different countries of origins.

            Of course, if they're not "cleaners," you could pay for a monthly visit from a maid service for however long you'd like... Or laundry delivery...

              Zingerman's (in Ann Arbor, MI) does cheese, bread, coffeecake, and pie clubs. They also do a really fabulous monthly gift basket subscription that includes unusual and rare food items. Yum.

                There's a potato of the month club from some farm up in New England. My parents thought it was delicious and horizon-broadening, with lots of different varieties, but it is...earthy. Probably not what you had in mind, but it is here for future searchers.
