Spice Poem – Seasoned Pioneers

News, Spicy Adventures

We are a jolly company, we are the spice of life

So rally to the cause, dear friend, and sharpen up your knife.

Let us help you savour

Meals with so much flavour.

We searched every corner in the culinary world

We searched high and low ‘til its mysteries unfurled

Some spices hot, some spices not

That little extra something to put into the pot!

 

We slave away from dawn ‘til dusk, we roast, we grind, we blend

To give you wondrous seasonings on which you can depend.

Soups, stocks, stir-fries and stews

Our flavourings relieve the ‘blues’.

With meat, pulses, pasta and rice

Only the very best will suffice.

 

Seeds and leaves, nuts, grains and pods

So much ambrosial food for the gods!

Warm, pungent, fruity, tangy or sweet

Hot, peppery, tart – oh what a treat!

Sultry, fiery, mellow to boot

Aromas extracted down to the root.

 

Dip it, rub it, glaze it, pickle and marinade it

Sprinkle, mix, infuse it, steam, boil and bake it

Quality spices for adventurous cooks –

Authentic blends in the best cookery books.

 

Our packs are unique

You can’t take a peek

For the spices inside

We’re trying to hide!

With no air and light

For the contents to fight

Their freshness, we feel

Is part of the deal.

 

Mulled drinks and sauces, a gift for a friend,

To such diversity is there no end?

Ready crushed ingredients – we’ve thought of it all

Our greatest endeavours have answered the call!

 

We are a small and happy band

We love to do so much by hand.

We want you all to understand

How proud we are of this, our brand!
