Heat up your home cooking with this chilli subscription!
Travel the route of the chilli and discover exciting new flavours on the way.
From the fruity ancho to the fiery birdseye, the subtle urfa to the searing chipotle, the chilli might possibly be the world's most versatile ingredient. Originating in Central and South America, chillies crossed the seas with the early explorers and captured the hearts and tastebuds of the rest of the world.
In this subscription you'll cook with 18 different chillies from all over the world - each monthly spicebox contains bags of different delicious chillies and spice blends, ready measured with the recipe cards, to make a full meal for four hungry people. And don't worry, even milder palates will enjoy the family-friendly meals, as all the really hot stuff is optional, or as a condiment!
The perfect gift for anyone who likes spicy food - keen cooks, chilli-heads and wanna-be food historians alike!
The first box of chillies, spices and recipe cards will be sent out as soon as you place your order, with a voucher card inside. The lucky chef activates the voucher to receive the remaining boxes at their own address.
For the first month you're in Mexico, where chilli is more an ingredient than a spice. This delicious main and dessert involves no less than nine different types of chillies, from the smoky chipotle to the fiery piquin, and it's a true Mexican treat for the tastebuds.
You'll also travel to Goa, India, where Portuguese traders introduced the chilli in the 15th century. Goan cuisine is strikingly tangy and flavoursome, making for a very satisfying curry spread.
In the Middle East and Europe the heat of the chilli is more restrained - the rich and earthy urfa chilli from Turkey stars in the starter, while the main showcases the varieties of the famous Hungarian paprika.
These boxes contain whole dried spices, freshly ground spices and handmade spice blends that are all carefully measured out to make fantastic recipes. Just add the other ingredients (meat, veg etc), all available from a standard supermarket.
The spices have a best before date of 12 months, so although the fresher the better, they will last well stored in a cool dry place.
The rest of the chilli subscription needs to be activated by 14th Feb 2016 - after this date, the recipient can choose one of our other subscriptions instead.
Every delivery will fit through a standard letterbox, so no need to be home when they arrive!
