What it's like to cook with SpiceBreeze?

Don’t just take our word for it. See what our customers say.

“Gave as a Xmas gift to my son and daughter in law and after 5 boxes they are still raving. They love the different fresh spices and particularly the recipes (which they send on to me.) As struggling grad students they appreciate the convenience and the novelty of someone else coming up with the answer to that perennial question “what’s for dinner.” The exposure to different food cultures from around the world has been really fun. Thanks for a great product.” Ann B.

“I was looking for a little gift for my wife, someone who is always shopping for herself. When I found SpiceBreeze I thought, “this might be cool”. Inevitably most of my gifts fail but when she opened the curated spice box she was surprised and delighted. A much better reaction than I figured on. Good idea if you know someone who likes to cook! Thanks all” Mike P.

“Good gift for someone who likes to cook.” Tracey K.

“The quality of the spices are outstanding and the recipe cards are just great! They include spices and recipes from around the world. For a foodie, this is heaven!” Natacha S.

“I am always so happy when I open my mailbox and the smell of the spices hits me on a hot day. I love the variery in the recipes, and the ease of making them. My family, and Facebook friends all think I’m an amazing cook with this up my sleeve!” Kathlene S.

Cooking with SpiceBreeze 101

All recipes are simplified and need no more than 30 minutes hands-on time. Only a few recipes suggest marinating or extended cooking time.
The SpiceBreeze menu follows the seasons: Stews, pies, and hearty soups in the winter; BBQ, and light meals in the summer; plus extraordinary menus for special occasions.
You can find the spice kits for a limited time in our store: www.bit.ly/SB_shop
We simplify authentic recipes to spare you the hassle with rare to find ingredients, assuming that soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and anchovy paste are widely available. Just add fresh ingredients to your pantry items.
In general, the recipes are designed to use the complete spice pouch at once. Just pour & stir. For few exceptions, it’s written in the recipe and on the pouch.
Yes, of course. Please see the notes on the recipe card and the tips in our emails.

Our Spices

We buy our spices from well selected American importers and make all spice blends every month in small batches right before shipping. Our customers love the freshness.

“DELICIOUS. Fresh. Filled with flavour. We have already made all 4 recipes suggested. And we couldn’t be happier. Can’t wait for the next batch.” Patrick A.

Because we prepare all spice blends each month just in the amount needed, they don’t need preservatives.

At SpiceBreeze we take care that our spices are free of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and artificial or natural flavors or colors.

We make the spice blends in a commercial kitchen where might also be used dairy, eggs, meat, fish, crustacean, nuts, soy, and wheat products. We take all precautions to prevent cross-contamination though can’t give a guarantee.

“As someone with a food allergy (Celiac’s Disease), eating out is really hard. Being given the spices and recipes to create food from other countries is amazing because it allows me to get food that I would normally get at home, and the recipes and spice list to create it again if I like it. And, at the price per month, it’s a pretty unbeatable deal. I highly recommend.” Savannah L.
