Spice Kitchen is a family run artisanal spice and tea company run by mother and son team Sanjay & Shashi Aggarwal. Started over the kitchen table on Christmas Day 2012, the business is centred around Shashi’s expertise and knowledge with spices and spice blends.
Shashi was born in Kenya, grew up in India and has lived in the UK for over 30 years. She has 40+ years of cookery experience and is an oracle when it comes to using spices, much to her families benefit. She is renowned for home cooking 12 course banquets without breaking a sweat!
They specialise in selling freshly ground spice blends and tea blends, along with their very popular spice tin collections. Their ‘Masala Dabba’ spice tins are shiny stainless steel tins imported from India, containing 7 separate containers for easy access to the myriad of spices that you will need to create perfectly blended dishes. They have various collections including an Indian set, Moroccan set, African & Middle Eastern set and a Loose Tea set with more coming soon!
They source the freshest spices from around the world, hand-blend, hand-roast and hand-grind them to authentic recipes, and send them fresh to customers to order. They promise you that you will never have smelt spices like them (so much so that they smell outside the packaging!).
Along with running a very busy business they support several charities supporting people in Kenya and India such as FRANK Water & Find Your Feet. They try to reduce, reuse and recycle where they can and use ancient production methods without the need for electricity.
They love to talk to their customers and are passionate about sharing their love for cooking so come armed with questions to Simply Cheshire and meet Sanjay there.
