Essential Spice Starter Collection
+ $ shipping surcharge
Back to basics.
Good food starts with good ingredients, and becomes great with proper seasoning. As a beginner cook, you'll need spices, and using high-quality ones is the difference between an average meal and an incredible dinner. Spices are one thing you shouldn't skimp on -- with that in mind, we designed this set with Oaktown Spice Shop and sourced the best of the best from around the globe. It's the ultimate starter set, from cayenne to cumin to cinnamon.
- Includes: Turkish bay leaf, crushed red chiles, tricolor peppercorns, smoked paprika, Saigon cinnamon, ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric, Spanish thyme, and cayenne
