Classic blends

Calling them 'classic blends' we offer you our selected authentic spice blends. Shichimi, ras el hanout, berbere and baharat will kick off, with more to follow this year. For our blends we look for mixes that best approximate the authentic taste. Of course, we do not ignore the origin of the spices, because making a tasty, also responsible blend is more than tossing around.

Berbere and Ras-el-hanout are examples of blends that we offer in the more familiar basic version to begin with. Beautiful full flavors, complex, but not too pronounced. Try combining berbere with a hint of tena-adam, a fruity, bitter accent that is highly appreciated in Ethiopia, but has turned out to be a bit too pronounced for the Western taste. Feel free to try it.

Our ras-el-hanout is used in dishes that also contain sweet elements, such as in tajines. Soon we will also be offering a 'warmer', darker version, and a 'sweet' version that is fully ground, which also includes spice fragments such as lavender, rose leaf and ceylon cinnamon.

Since 2021, we have been offering Merquén, chilli powder according to the original Mapuchen recipe, directly from Chile. Producer Nestia obtains its raw materials from small, and as they call it micro-farmers, family businesses for which the cultivation of chilli and/or coriander is an important, if not the most important, source of income. Nestia works according to Fairtrade principles.

Recently we made contact with an Indian company that produces an unprecedented variety of masalas, the expectations are high. There is still a lot to come!
