Initial Impression
Not only did the packaging look fantastic, the box smelt amazing! There was enough information on the subscription I had chosen and link to the website to find out more about the other options. The recipes looked easy to follow, laid out well and fun. The ingredients are items you can find in your local supermarket so no need to worry about looking for exotic foods that are hard to get hold of or expensive. For the amount you pay you get a wide variety of spices and recipes, I was not expecting so much which was a great surprise!
After Cooking
I cannot express how incredible the Moroccan Tagine curry tasted. It was full of flavour and spice; we used diced chicken instead of lamb as that is what we prefer. This is just one example of the ingredients you can substitute out for alternatives. The recipe was very easy to read and follow which made it a relaxed atmosphere in the kitchen. I personally get stressed when trying new foods as I don’t feel very confident in the kitchen; however this experience has changed that for me, I look forward to trying the other recipes and spices.

Final Thoughts
Firstly I would like to thank The Spicery for sending me this fantastic box to try. It has opened so many doors for me regarding experimenting in the kitchen. I would highly recommend this box to anyone that is looking to try something new and different, improve their cooking skills, experiment with recipes, and have some fun! You can turn this into a family activity by including the children or save it for a date night instead of getting a take away! It is a great way to spend time together and enjoy the finished product. Not only is the food tasty but it is great value for money too.
