The Spicery Box Review by Chloe – March 2018

This is my third month reviewing the Spicery Box so I knew what to expect through my letterbox. The packaging was the same; it would have been more exciting and intriguing if they changed the packaging up slightly month to month. Apart from this, as always it was practical fitting through my letter box meaning no red cards from Royal Mail.
If you missed my unboxing, you can watch it back here…

After cooking
This month I cooked the Japanese curry with jasmine rice. First things first it was delicious! I will definitely be repeating this recipe in the future as it was a big hit in my house. I can only imagine how amazing it would taste in Japan itself, when trying to replicate it at home was such a success.
Final thoughts
Firstly I would like to thank The Spicery for sending me this fantastic box to try. I would never have the confidence to try a recipe like this before receiving this box. It has taught me to give recipes a chance and experiment with different foods and cultures. I would 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! Not only is the food tasty but it is great value for money too.
