Cooking and baking with RawSpiceBar Spice Delivery

March 31, 2015

Following up on my recent review of RawSpiceBar spice delivery service in Canada & the US, I'm sharing a little of my experience cooking with the themed spice boxes.

 Each monthly RawSpiceBar spice box has a theme as you travel around the spice routes of the world, from Native America to Persian, each month delving into different flavours with a celebrity chef guiding you through recipes that highlight the spices and region of the month. Each package includes spice origin information, instructions on use and storage, recipe cards and addition recipe idea suggestions with various options for different eating styles including vegetarian, gluten-free, healthy cooking and more.

I've been trying out different recipes here and there, but decided to try all of February's RawSpiceBar recipes created by Chef Vishwa Mohan - Executive Chef of Vancouver's Bin 421 for one big meal, creating an epic Punjab-inspired Indian feast from scratch. The spice package included a Tandoori spice blend, a Punjabi Garam Masala spice blend and a Rose & Chai spice blend. All the spice packages contained some spices I've used before, and some that I've never even tasted, smelled or seen before.

I like that each spice delivery includes both simple recipes and ideas and some more complicated and intricate recipes that really highlight the flavours of the area. The Punjabi Chicken Tikka Masala had lots (and lots) of steps to get through prep, marinating and cooking, but the aroma in the kitchen was incredible the whole time and I learned some new techniques for Indian cooking. Also, check out that gorgeous whole three-veined Indian bay leaf above. So good!

The recipes in each spice box include various ideas for main dishes, side, dishes, breads, desserts and drinks (with more recipes, spice info and meal ideas on RawSpiceBar's website). The Rose & Chai spice mix in the Punjab spice box smelled so good I just wanted to make Chai Tea with it right away, but the recipe for Chai & Rose Nankhatai Cookies was simple to whip up and the spiced dessert cookies paired perfectly with our Indian feast.

RawSpiceBar spice delivery is just $6 a month, a great deal for these high-end spice blends and the accompanying recipes and cooking inspiration. RawSpiceBar subscriptions are available for purchase online with 3 month subscription for $18, 6 months for $35 or 12 months for $68, subscriptions can be paused or cancelled at any time and gift subscriptions are available.

I can't wait to see where in the world spice route RawSpiceBar will travel to next, and encourage curious home cooks across North America to give this affordable and flavour-packed delivery service a try.
