The kit comes with shrimp, mussels, scallops and sausage, frozen so that they stay fresh for when you’re ready to eat. If you’re feeling fancy, you can add on extras like crab, lobster and crawfish. On the veggie side, corn on the cob, potatoes, garlic and onion are all included. When you’re ready, throw everything into the pot and wait for the magic to happen. Before you know it, everything will be perfectly cooked and seasoned

3. Graphic Marina bamboo plates ($48) designed by Toronto-based artist Xenia Taler add the perfect finishing touch to dish up your seafood.

4. This classic apron ($50) goes with everything and will help to protect your clothes from the inevitable splash from the pot as it comes to a boil.
