Meet The Spice Pioneer

Hello! Ola! Salaam! We welcome you to the travels of The Spice Pioneer, the globetrotting culinary adventurer who every month bring’s subscribers the worlds finest spices, flavourings and recipes from all edges of the globe. Easy-to-follow recipes to enable you to make authentic dishes from around the world and create an evening to remember.

The Spice Pioneer is not just an intrepid traveller but a true expert in spices and flavours – which is why you can be sure that each each spice box you receive will contain only the very best spices, flavourings and really authentic recipes.

For years he has been helping to source spices and more for our sister company Seasoned Pioneers from all over the world, which is why he knows where to go to get the very best. He has eaten (and cooked!) the finest curries, tucked into the very best paella, enjoyed sensational tastes of Thailand and devoured delicious Italian food and so, so much more besides. Which is why you can trust the Spice Pioneer to help you create great tasting dishes from all parts of the globe.

To help you do just this each spice kit not only contains all the spices and flavours you need to make the selected meal but a shopping list that lists the other ingredients required, an easy to follow set of instructions and – to make the evening complete – a music playlist that reflects your culinary destination and perfects your entire cooking and dining experience. Again these are chosen by our intrepid traveller, who loves music and much as he loves good food…!

We hope those few lines may have captured your imagination already, as this really is a unique style of spice subscription box, hitherto unseen in the world of meal kits! Our Spice Pioneer has been given the highly enviable mission of travelling across all the continents and delving into the motherlands of flavour, seasoning and spice that have been tantalizing distant taste buds for aeons.

His assignment is quite literally to seek out the very best of what the culinary world has to offer in the fantastically varied cuisines enjoyed globally. He will research an array of aspects relating to international cooking as there is a lot more to it than just finding recipes for superb dishes. Of course, he will enjoy himself whilst he ‘works’ on our behalf but we mustn’t be too envious, it is a challenging task and he is a perfectionist and we know he will go to endless lengths to make sure that the end results of his efforts are nothing less than exceptional.

He must consider each recipe in the round – the preparation, the cooking methods, the equipment required, the time things take to do and of course the availability of the ingredients. As a result, every spice monthly subscription that you receive has been meticulously tailored to work in your own kitchen. You will by now be realising that The Spice Pioneer is much more than a handsome face, he is an intrepid culinary nomad and a genius in the kitchen!

Luckily for us, he is also an incredibly amiable chap with an innate ability to interact positively with everyone that he encounters. This frequently results in the hand of friendship being extended to him by way of the internationally recognised bequest of food and drink. You may have experienced something similar yourself when overseas, there really is no greater feeling of cultural privilege than being invited to dine with local people that you meet.

So that is his task in a nutmeg, oops…nut shell! He is on an open-ended voyage of culinary discovery with the aim of enabling all of us to receive an astonishing meal kit delivery by going to no more effort ourselves than simply signing up to a spice monthly subscription!

Every spice subscription box that is delivered through your door will have an exciting element of surprise as you will not know which country’s cuisine The Spice Pioneer is going to treat you to next. Only upon opening the meal kit will you discover which meal destination you and your guests are going to experience. However, you can be sure that the enclosed recipes have been tested many times thus guaranteeing that they are simple to follow whilst giving spectacular results that you will be proud to present on your table!

Not only will you receive fabulous recipes, you will find little pots of ingredients, spices and seasonings that will ensure you achieve the authentic and genuine flavours just as if you were enjoying those dishes at their source. If he could capture the sunshine and warmth in one of those little pots, then he would, but that is even beyond the skills of The Spice Pioneer and do bear in mind that he may be sending your meal kit delivery from much colder climes!

Instead, he will capture the local ambience for you by way of personally written postcards in which he will portray to you his surroundings, experiences, encounters and snippets of local life. Do be prepared on occasion to laugh out loud at his vivid depictions and unending sense of humour, vital characteristics for even the most seasoned traveller!

The Spice Pioneer, apart from having a fascination (obsession?!) with everything foodie, is also passionate about music, in fact it is not unknown for him to pick up a guitar and start up a chorus with new-found friends from around the world! He has an inbuilt musical perception, understanding the power of music to create feeling, invite atmosphere and inspire your imagination.

We thought it was a wonderful idea when he suggested that he compiled a playlist of music that would complement the origin of each spice subscription box. He hasn’t let us down, as with each of your spice monthly subscription boxes, you will receive a link to a playlist of music that reflects your culinary destination and perfects your entire cooking and dining experience.

We’ve made a few different tagines but this was by far the best. Easy to make and absolutely delicious. We especially liked the date and orange salad as a side dish.

Just cooked my second box from The Spice Pioneer. Amazing and authentic flavours from Morocco. The smells alone took us back to the time we spent in Marrakech a few years ago. Highly recommended. The orange, date and pomegranate molasses salad was one of the best dishes I have ever had.

We just had the beetroot curry and Sri Lankan curry but with prawns instead of monkfish and it was fabulous. The recipe card was brilliant and we really enjoyed making it. Can’t wait for the next one!

We've just had the monkfish curry and spicy green beans from the Sri Lanka box. Both were great, but the monkfish was particularly good. I wouldn't normally use curry leaves or tamarind paste, and really enjoyed the new flavours. Delicious!

Oooooh lovely start to the festive season. Our very first box of the spice pioneer. My other half and I will be making the recipe option this weekend for a different start to Christmas. Packaging looks great , and considering I just ate Thai curry for tonight's dinner ... The Galle , Sri Lanka looks right up our street . Great to have a different choice to the norm 😁
