The idea behind Travel Spices
Travel Spices was born from our travel experiences. We like to travel with friends & families to share a memorable time with them.
Often we rent a big house with a well equipped kitchen, because one of our interests is exploring local cuisine, and so in the evening we all gather in the kitchen and cook & eat together.
British waxed fabric in Olive Sand colour -100% natural cotton, treated with wax to have natural waterproof effect, also known as oilskin fabric.
It is made in the UK by a renowned wax fabric manufacturer. It has a slight sheen to it and a special antique effect finish, which gives it a rustic appearance once in use.
FAR FAR EAST
Impressed by the recent uprise of Nordic cuisine.
Kobenhavn contains some good old essentials like dill, nutmeg, marjoram, tarragon, and typical Scandinavian ingredient - liquorice, which was more often used for sweets, but is also interesting for savory dishes and sauces.
There ara also the German traditional spice - Savory, (Bohnenkraut in German) - which is almost exclusively used for bean dishes and Lovage, which was introduced to Europe by Romans and adds an intense celery-like flavour to soups, stews and stocks or pork and poultry dishes.
To add fine hotness, horseradish powder comws in handy. Just dissolve it in some water and make an easy sauce for salmon, roast beef or potato salad. Crystal Maldon salt is a must-have on any trip and rounds up this collection.
COMES IN 3 DIRECTIONS
FAR FAR EAST
In the Northeast Asian kitchen -especially in Japan-, spices are often used not while cooking, but presented on the table together with the dishes.
Wasabi, the probably most well-known Japanese mustard for Sushi, comes as powder.
Just by adding a little water you can make a fresh wasabi paste. Karashi, -the Japanese mustard in yellow colour- can be made in the same fashion. It is perfect for fatty pork dishes like Kakuni or Oden.
Black & white sesame are both perfect for decorating Japanese dishes. Just Sprinkle them ontop of salads, rice and other dishes.
Shichimi is a chilli based spice mix, great for hot soba noodles but can also be used for many other dishes.
Ginger is one of essential spices to cook meat, also used for horse mackerel sashimi and dressings for salad.
Chinese Sichuan pepper has a distinctive citrus flavour and creates an interesting tingling numbness in your mouth
It is essential for Mapo Tofu, which is widely popular also in Japan.
To round things up, the flavour of matcha salt gives just right amount of bitterness and saltiness to Tempura dishes.

We used to buy each time every spices we needed, but sometimes they are just in a big pack and had to give up to bring them back.
That's when the idea was born to bring our own spices from home. Starting as spices-packed-in-ziplock-bags, we finally developed beautiful, yet compact and light product, which accompany your travel perfectly.
