Adventure Access Gear and Gift Hub
Lost Plate Food Tours are one of our favorite add-on's for all the Adventure Access tours starting in Xi'an or ending in Chengdu. Now they are bringing the same flavors to your own table. Make authentic recipes straight from China without the need to substitute any hard-to-find ingredients. These legit ingredients, combined with 5 tried and tested family recipes, will bring a taste of Sichuan straight to your own kitchen. You buy the perishables and leave the rest to us – the box has enough ingredients to make each recipe multiple times.
In this box you’ll find all the pantry essentials for recipes that have been in our own families for generations. Each ingredient comes in plentiful quantities in case you want to revisit or tweak our versions. As we continue releasing more recipes, you’ll gain an appreciation and skill for one of the most popular cuisines in the world. If you are a fan of heavy flavors and have an urge to challenge your taste buds, this Sichuan food is going to be quite the adventure for you.
The items in our Sichuan Recipe Box are staples in any Sichuan kitchen, but they can be very hard, or impossible, to find outside of China. The beauty of these items is that a little bit goes a long way, and they will remain a part of your kitchen long enough to make each of our four recipes multiple times.
Sichuan food represents one of the eight major Chinese cuisines and enjoys a celebrated reputation at home and abroad for its dedication to spiciness. It’s capital, Chengdu, was made a UNESCO city of gastronomy and deservedly so; even within China, over 30% of restaurants serve Sichuan cuisine making it one of the most popular Chinese flavors in China itself.
In addition to the ingredients that come in this box, you’ll need to provide the perishable ingredients for each recipe, in addition to kitchen staples like salt, oil, and soy sauce.
Free shipping is included anywhere in the lower 48 US States.

Recipes included in this box come straight from our Lost Plate team in China, who grew up watching their parents make them and now make them for their own families. Each recipe is portioned to 2-4 servings and on the generous side…we are Lost Plate after all! We’ve also included a shopping list that covers literally all of the perishables that you will need, apart from salt, pepper, sugar, and cooking oil (not olive oil which has a low smoking point, but canola or soy is perfect).
We're adventurers at heart and created this spot to provide select gear as you prepare for your next adventure and to create lasting memories with meaningful gifts that are not found on the beaten path. At the Adventure Access Gear Hub we are offering branded products as well as unique gifts inspired by the Tibetan Plateau.
