Herbs & Spices

Almost as old as the art of cooking is the practice of adding or enhancing taste or disguising poor flavours by adding, marinating or cooking food with herbs and spices resulting in spectacular explosions of fragrant delicacies. Besides adding umph to food they are also prized for their medicinal properties used to treat an endless list of ailments. We sell an infinite range of dried herbs and spices either whole or ground together with a variety of curry mixes and seasonings.
