In a market in Marrakesh, surrounded by the colour and fragrance of spices, James Ransome had his 'lightbulb moment' - and in 2005 the Spicery was born. He started off selling spices at farmers markets, and soon began to measure them out into recipe kits for food from around the world.
Now, these delicious boxes are sent all over the world, introducing people to new ingredients, recipes and cooking techniques every month.
Cooking with spices really thrills the senses but they can sometimes feel complex and intimidating, so we try to make using them really easy, fun and convenient. Our monthly subscriptions contain all the fresh spices you need, measured out to make fantastic recipes and delivered through the letterbox every month.
We develop and test all the recipes here in a big kitchen at the Spicery HQ, in Bristol, where we eat curry for lunch almost every day (it's a hard life!). Then we grind and blend the spices in small batches just before sending them, so you always get to enjoy them at their best - filling your own kitchen with the exciting colour and fragrance of the world.
