The Spice Trail

Cooking with spices and herbs can be daunting for a beginner but once you’ve mastered it, I promise that you will never look back. My personal journey began in Tel Aviv when a visit to the infamous Carmel Market filled my senses with happiness. However, with the exception of Borough Market in London and the stores on and around Edgware Road, we have nothing like that in the UK. What we do have however are thousands upon thousands of family-owned stores that represent just about every food culture in the world.

My go to place for legumes, rice, grains, herbs and spices is Spice Corner in Leeds’ fabulous Kirkgate Market. Owned by the lovely Sarida Koheeallee, it is piled high with inspiring global ingredients and she will be very happy to give you all the guidance that you need.

Please check out my Pantry and Source pages to discover more about the ingredients I use, the brands I love and the places I source them from.
