The spices look wonderful, but I was under the impression that the spices came with recipes. Please explain. Thank you
While the spices I got were fresh and well packaged in small packs, I had no opportunity to provide input to my selection. As a result there are only a few spices of interest to me. I don't like fennel, I don't drink coffee (Hawaij Coffee), I don't like gingerbread (German Gingerbread). After 35 days of receiving these and looking at the website and recipes, my wife who gave me the gift, found and pushed me to make the chicken Ras El Hanout. It was very good. I will use the remainder of the Ras in their lamb tagine recipe substituting pork. So the spices are great but I'd actually thought I'd ordered monthly rather than quarterly, we both thought recipes actually came with the spices. It's ok that they are only online but the way the website is constructed searching for spice info and recipes is not as user friendly as it could be. So although the subscription might be fun, you might do better to just pick out spices individually that interest you until at least they figure out a way you can influence the spices they send willy nilly.
I really enjoyed my first quarterly package of spices. I have used a few of the packets in recipes and looking forward to creating some meals with the other packs. The recipes online are very helpful for those of us that are not use to cooking with premade spice blends. My only negative would be that I think the packaging of the quarterly kits could be a bit better. The plain brown envelope those cost feasible for a company is just not completing the experience with the WOW factor.
