Spices for travel

Spicy Adventures

It’s summer holiday time and there is a great sense of excitement and anticipation in the air!

Where have you chosen to spend your precious time away?

Maybe you’ll stay on a narrow-boat cruising the serene canals and rivers, chugging along at a leisurely pace whilst watching kingfishers flash along the bank.

Possibly you’ll be opening your caravan door in the morning and gazing across the beach at the rolling surf, with the sound of seagulls wheeling overhead?

You may have booked a comfortably furnished self-catering stone cottage with rural views from every window and a pair of deckchairs in the garden.

Others will be glamping or camping next to a sparkling freshwater lake surrounded by forest, listening to the nocturnal sounds of wildlife!

However you are planning to relax, one of the most important components of a wonderful holiday is wonderful food. Being well planned and well prepared in advance of your trip will enable a speedier attainment of relaxation once you’ve reached your destination. Not having to seek out the shops as soon as you’ve arrived means you can take it easy and instantly enjoy your surroundings.

With this in mind, we have put together a new collection of herbs, spices, seasonings and spice blends, aptly named the Travel Spice Kitchen. We hope that by popping this convenient, easy to carry pack into your luggage, you will have the ability to create fabulous meals with the minimum of effort and time!

The Travel Spice Kitchen contains the following carefully selected items, as always they are presented in our unique resealable foil pouches, ensuring maximum freshness and flavour:

This collection opens up a profusion of culinary options when on holiday. Use to conjure up tasty stir-fries, curries, chilli con carne, barbecue rubs, stews, goulashes, rice dishes, omelettes, pasta sauces and much more. All of those dishes can be created whether you are cooking on a camp-fire, a two ring hob or a full range cooker!

The ideas don’t stop there – when you don’t want a hot meal, you can use the Indian Garam Masala to make a delicious Coronation chicken, sprinkle oregano over a salad of sliced tomatoes and olive oil, stir chilli powder through crème fraiche for a dip with crudités or mix prawns with mayonnaise flavoured with paprika……the limit is your imagination!
