Herbs & Spices
Squisito produce a unique range of herbs and spices for the creative cook from Air Dried Oregano to Oak Smoked Trapani Sea Salt which we air dry and smoke in Monks Kirby. None of our herbs and spices are denatured or irradiated. The only 'processing' you will find at Squisito HQ is an AGA Rayburn cooker or a wood smoker so you won't beat Squisito for flavour, freshness or medicinal qualities.
Our herb and spice mixes are generally quite coarse to maintain the flavour so you might find the odd stalk in pot of thyme whilst our dried bags of herbs like rosemary are on the branch. If you want a finer product get your hand blender and a sieve out!
Most of our rubs are made with the creative chef in mind as much as the
midweek after work cook or the student room gourmet with limited
space. Fiorentina Rub makes a great marinade with Chianti whilst
others like Alex's Hot Rub can be used to flavour meats to give a
barbecue flavour without the barbecue or make yoghurt or créme fraîche
dip to go with homemade crackers or even a coating for crisps.
Herbs and spices are available in biogradable 100ml pots, resealable
brown paper window bags or we can refill your own pots at market
without waste or environmental cost.
Regular customers and chefs can have ingredients smoked, ground or
processed to order so if you want something heavily smoked or on the
stalk in bunches then we are happy to oblige.
