If there is something that makes me proud when cooking, it’s the way I use spices. I am lucky enough to come from a family that never got into bland food. We like flavours. And I have learnt how to use and mix them since I was quite young.
It’s funny to say that I was watching a with someone who curates spices. He plays with herbs and spices when blending flavours and it’s an art indeed.
There is no limit to creativity when talking about spices and rub mixing. We play with all senses here. Spices are visual, colourful, aromatic and of course, tasty. Not to mention the texture. Isn’t fun? So, why going for bland food?
We don’t need to be a spice expert when talking about spices. This month, I am lucky enough to get into new flavours with Life of Spice. I have received:
- The American Rub Collection – a five tin collection of authentic spice rubs inspired by American BBQ culture.
Much Adobo About Nothing – used in chilli and fajita recipes
Kansas City Rib Rub– a true taste of Midwest
Memphis Belle – a southern taste sensation
Sweet Home Alabama – rich smoky heat and fragrant herbs
Savannah Gold – a taste of Georgia.
- The Italian Collection – a three tin collection comprising one rub, one salt and one herb blend with the Italian theme.
Italian Herbs – authentic trattoria taste to pizza
The Italian job – a taste of the Mediterranean to your table
Pepper Smurf – A classic Italian peppered steak rub
Both, already blended and ready to be used! Isn’t a dream? You can’t go wrong with it. Gourmet spice blends elevate other flavours. Then, you have a combination of magic powders and rubs that will release a fragrances and layer of flavours to enhance the taste for your dish.
Chicken, red meat, fish, vegetables – It doesn’t matter what you’re cooking, without spices you can’t have a big hit or bring some fun to your food. You can even spice up your drinks and cocktails.
What is Life of Spice?
Life of Spice was founded by Trevor and Martina in 2014, in Oxfordshire, with the aim of providing a range of spice blends with simple and great tastes for using in your daily life.
“We produce in small batches using the freshest dried herbs and spices we source from a small and reliable group of suppliers. In all honesty, ‘maker’ days are the ones we really look forward to – the smell coming from the production unit is fantastic.”
