All collections include our *new* spice technique book, From Grind to Garnish: 13 Fundamental Techniques for Cooking with Spices.
The 6-spice collection includes:
Silk Chili (1.8 oz. glass jar)
These summery and spicy Silk Chili come from Kahramanmaras, Turkey. Also known as marash pepper, the Silk Chili is botanically identical to the Aleppo pepper, which has been cultivated in Syria for centuries. They have a warm, tomato-like flavor and a medium heat, similar to Espelette and Korean chilis.
Ground Laurel Bay Leaves (1.5 oz. glass jar)
Our ground Laurel Bay Leaf is a pure expression of the savory, herbal flavor of the bay leaf. Sourced from the rocky Mediterranean coastline of Turkey, then dried and ground into a powder, it's a versatile alternative to whole bay leaves.
Purple Stripe Garlic (3.0 oz. glass jar)
Our Purple Stipe Garlic Powder comes from an heirloom variety with a purple stripe on its papery skin. It's grown by a group of farmers in the mountains of northern Vietnam and has a savory and sweet flavor profile that adds depth and complexity to everything it touches.
Flowering Hyssop Thyme (0.8 oz. glass jar)
Our Flowering Hyssop Thyme is a very special herb that is only grown in the Middle East, where it is the primary ingredient in the za'atar spice blend, along with sumac and sesame seeds. It has an ancient history of culinary and medicinal usage, and it has a beautiful floral, herbaceous flavor and aroma.
Smoked Pimentón Paprika (1.8 oz. glass jar)
Sweet, locally grown red pimentón peppers are slowly dried over oak coals, which imbue them with a rich, smoky flavor that imparts a savory depth and gorgeous color to any dish. It comes from a single family-owned fabrica in the Extremadura region of western Spain famous for pimenton de la vera.
Royal Cinnamon (1.8 oz. glass jar)
The same species as Saigon cinnamon (Cinnamomum loureiroi), Royal Cinnamon is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and it exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized. It's our best-seller.
The 9-spice collection also includes:
Wild Mountain Cumin (1.5 oz. glass jar)
Our Wild Mountain Cumin has a savory, penetrating aroma and bright, umami flavor. The tiny, oblong black seeds are hand-picked by foragers in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan.
Kashmiri Chili Powder (2.0 oz. glass jar)
A welcome addition to any dish that needs a burst of flavor and color, Kashmiri chili boasts a classic balance of heat and sweetness, and this variety is hotter than others you may have tried!
Buffalo Ginger (1.8 oz. glass jar)
Our Buffalo Ginger is an heirloom ginger variety from a group of farmers in the mountains of northern Vietnam. Known for its fruity and floral aroma and powerful heat, this is a complex, flavorful ginger powder that will elevate baked goods, stews, curries, and beverages from hot drinks to cocktails.
The 12-spice collection also includes:
Cured Sumac (2.3 oz. glass jar)
Our spectacular Cured Sumac grows wild around Gaziantep, Turkey. It has a bright, sour, salty and slightly fermented flavor that comes from being packed in salt. This is one of our most popular spices.
Robusta Black Pepper (1.8 oz. grinder-top jar)
The Robusta Black Pepper is a combination of two heirloom pepper varieties, Vĩnh Linh (grown by Dūng) and Trâu Xanh (grown by Thanh). Together, the two types of sun-dried peppercorns hit a perfect balance of fragrance and flavor.
Turkish Oregano Buds (0.5 oz. grinder-top jar)
Our zesty, bright oregano buds come from Turkey, where they have to be picked by hand just before they open into oregano flowers. These tiny, pinecone-shaped buds have everything we love about oregano, but with a particularly beautiful spicy, hoppy twist.
A Life Changer!
It's only been a month and I've not used even a majority of the spices that arrived in the collection but WOW oh WOW am I glad I took the plunge and dove right in! I have already found some new favorite recipes and cooking is no longer a chore. It's fun to experiment and try new tastes!
Whole new experience!
Love my new spices! I have always tried to find the best organic spices in the store; however after using those in the Fundamental Collection, I was surprised at the difference. I am looking forward to ordering more soon.
Never knew that cinnamon could taste so good! Love these spices.
This was a gift
My daughter is very concerned sustainable, ethically sourced foods, was surprised and ecstatic with this collection
Simply the BEST
These spices are like nothing you have ever ever had before. The difference in the taste of food using these spices compared to before B&B is unbelievable.
Really “spiced” up our cooking
The fundamentals collections is great. We have been really enjoying all them all. These spices have allowed us to start make some new interesting dishes rather than relying on the same favors we had been in the past. I particularly like the silk chili because it has a great chili favor without too much heat.
We really liked these spices. They add a great flavor to our meals.
