We were tired of powdery, stale & boring ingredients & we don’t always want a ‘curry kit’ with a long list of ingredients & instructions. We wanted something more versatile.
We believe if you were to have a wish list of things your spice mix should be, you’d have a few things that were important:
Our Balsamic range is really special. We take a beautiful aged balsamic from Modena & do everything else ourselves using real fruit & spice.
But there’s another big difference with ours & the other mass-produced fruit vinegars: we don’t add a grain of sugar. This gives you a glossy, complex balsamic instead of a sugary-sweet, ‘cloying’ dressing. It also means you’ll use a few drops of our compared with a tablespoon of the cheaper imitations.
Check the ingredients on others & then ours; we think you’ll be shocked at what goes into theirs (& stays out of ours!). Once you’ve tried a ‘real’ balsamic, you won’t want a fake one again!
We made a conscious decision to support British farmers & use cold-pressed rapeseed oil instead of olive oil. Apart from being able to guarantee the quality & provenance, we believe that rapeseed oil gives a much better infusion as it’s a cleaner, purer taste. The fact that it has a lot more health benefits compared with olive oil, half the saturated fat, high levels of omega oils & so on, provides even more assurance that switching is the better thing to do.
With the support of a lot of mainstream chefs now too, it is fast becoming more popular with consumers once they realise how much better it tastes!
If you’re looking for the fastest, easiest way to add real flavour to food, our flavoured salt is the answer. We use the purest, flakiest British sea salt & infuse it with pure herbs & spice.
There’s a lot of publicity about salt levels in foods today, right so, but the issues are related more to processed foods because you can’t easily see how much you’re eating unless you study the pack. Seasoning your food as you cook means you’ll use less salt on your plate at the end. Sea salt is also saltier, so you use less. Ditch the table salt for pure sea salt instead.
HERBS & SPICES
We source the finest quality spices & herbs for the freshest, punchiest flavour.
They’re not just for curries either! Rub some Sweet Paprika & Ground Coriander onto a chicken breast before cooking for a massive flavour boost. A pinch of turmeric on chicken gives lovely flavour & colour too.
Available in resealable, stackable pots, they offer tremendous value for money compared with older supermarket products.
