Have you ever opened a cookbook, looked at the ingredient list, saw more than 3 spices and put the recipe away again? Spices are complicated, at least, that's the common misconception when you start to talk about spices. They have a mysterious and daunting image.
However in all those years cooking - and hella lot of failing - with spices we have never been injured. Have you? Biting marks, scars? Not really, right? So nothing to be scared of. In all honesty, we might have burned them a few times, more than a few, but let's call that the beauty of the process. Spices are a process, a journey, and a true lifestyle. You are invited to join us on this road of re-discovery.

We learned from traveling, eating in all corners of the world with people from all corners of the world, and by watching our gurus and role models, reading books, tapping from online sources and dating spicy lovers. Because spice is everywhere and should be everywhere, from your kitchen to your bedroom and in your travel suitcase. Why? Wauw, where should we begin…
...right here, at Spice First. Welcome.
