I am always looking to try new spices when cooking; especially on baked chicken since that is my "specialty" in this house. Yummy! With a RawSpiceBar subscription
, each month you receive 3 different spice blends created either by spice experts, top chefs or tried and trusted family recipes that have been used for generations. They search high and wide to bring you the most authentic spice blends used around the world to create dishes you otherwise wouldn`t have tried. Many of their spice blends & dishes are authentic to a specific region- but often they love bridging the flavor gap and incorporating new spice blends into familiar cuisines. Each of their freshly ground spice blends are perfectly portioned to create a dish serving 6-10. They`re on a mission to eliminate the waste all of those unused pre-ground spice jars from your cabinet that haven`t been used in years and have long past lost their flavor! Each of their spice blends come with at least 4-5 recipe ideas that they`ve kitchen tested and loved- and almost always will include a recipe suitable for vegans, carnivores and vegetarians alike.
What`s in the monthly box:
- 3 freshly ground spices & blends with a new regional theme
- Kitchen-tested recipes for cooking 3 global dishes serving 4-6
- Receive 3 freshly made flavor kits, created with unique and new ingredients
I was pretty darn excited about this. I mean for only $8 a month you can`t go wrong?! Also, I do wish you got a bit more spice for $8; it is worth it because of the quality and uniqueness you get. I got 3 new spices I had never heard of and wow did they impress me!
In my package I received:
Unpumpkin Pie Spice
Ginger, cinnamon, allspice berries, star anise, nutmeg
Toasted black peppercorns, ginger, cinnamon, green cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, star anise, spices
Toasted cumin, toasted coriander, turmeric, fenugreek, yellow mustard seeds, brown mustard seeds, green cardamom, aleppo pepper, cayenne, nutmeg, cloves, spices
As I said originally when I first tried out RawSpiceBar
, each spice was new to me and totally unique. It`s not something you can just pick up from your local grocery store. Yes, you can buy each individual spice, but not already combined in this particular mix - which is what I love! I was excited to try out all the different flavors. I particularly enjoyed the Peppercorn Chai on some baked chicken I cooked. I was surprised with some of the suggested uses for the spices such as for the Vadouvan Leek & Butternut Squash Soup and the Vadouvan scrambled eggs. The downfall to that is now I want more so I can use it on a regular basis!
The RawSpiceBar subscription is definitely a unique one and fun for those who cook or enjoy using spices with their food. It`s also a great way to try new products without spending a lot of money. All in all, $8 is well worth what you get from this company because of the quality! If you`ve ever tried the spices I received in this box, feel free to share a good recipe using one or all of them!
