Meet The Spice Pioneer

Hello! Hola! Salaam! We welcome both novice and experienced cooks to assist the Spice Pioneer on his culinary adventures. The Spice Pioneer gathers the world’s finest spices, flavourings and recipes from around the globe, enabling us to create gourmet and authentic cuisine.

Being an intrepid and experienced traveller, the Spice Pioneer knows the best places to source fragrant, premium ingredients. He has eaten (and cooked!) the finest curries, tucked into the very best paella, enjoyed sensational tastes of Thailand, devoured delicious Italian food and more. Our Spice Pioneer travels across all continents to find flavours that will tantalise your tastebuds. Therefore, you can trust him to deliver the best spices and recipes through your letterbox, so you can create exquisite dishes from all parts of the globe.

Global cuisine is diverse, and the Spice Pioneer aims to seek out the very best of what the culinary world has to offer. Of course, he will enjoy himself whilst ‘working’ but we mustn’t be too envious, as this is a challenging task and he will go to endless lengths to make sure his efforts are worth it. Luckily for us, he is an amiable chap with an innate ability to interact positively with anyone he encounters. This frequently results in the hand of friendship being extended by bequest of food and drink. You may have experienced something similar yourself when overseas – there really is no greater privilege than being invited to dine with the locals!

By now you must have realised that the Spice Pioneer is a valiant culinary nomad and a genius in the kitchen! He must consider the details of each recipe – the preparation, cooking methods, equipment required, cooking time and of course the availability of ingredients. As a result, every deluxe recipe box has been meticulously tailored to work in your kitchen.

Each box contains 6-8 spices to create a three-course meal from a new, exotic destination. The Spice Pioneer includes a postcard in each box, that details his latest adventures and explorations. You may want to drop your pans and join him on his travels but rest assured, the tempting task of cooking his latest mouth-watering recipe is just as invigorating! A shopping list is also included, that details the other ingredients required. Once all the food is purchased, the Spice Pioneer will guide you through the cooking process with his straight-forward instructions. Finally – to make the evening complete – a specially curated music playlist that reflects your culinary destination is available to round off your entire cooking experience!

Not only will you receive fabulous recipes, you will find little pots of ingredients, spices and seasonings that will capture genuine and authentic flavours within your cooking. Rest assured that the enclosed recipes have been tried and tested countless times, guaranteed to provide spectacular results that you will be proud to present to your table!

If the Spice Pioneer could encapsulate a slice of culture within the recipe box, then he would. Instead, he captures the local ambience by way of personally written postcards in which he will portray his surroundings, encounters and snippets of local life. Do be prepared on occasion to laugh out loud at his vivid depictions and undeniable sense of humour!

The Spice Pioneer is also passionate about music. In fact, he would seize the opportunity to pick up a guitar and start up a chorus with new-found friends from around the world! He understands the importance of music to evoke feeling, create atmosphere and inspire imagination. We thought it would be a wonderful idea to compile a music playlist that compliments the origin of each recipe box.

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 😁
