SpiceBreeze Review November 2018
SpiceBreeze is a monthly subcription box that delivers 4-5 spice kits to your door that allow you to travel around the world through its authentic cuisine.
In your SpiceBreeze kit each month you receive spices and recipe cards to recreate 2-4 countries’ dishes. The flavors being delicious and fresh, they’ll transport you right to another country! As soon as I opened the package I could smell the divine aromas of these dishes and I am so excited to try them! Going abroad is pretty cool, but when we can’t, this is as close as it gets!
In the November kit we got 5 spices for 4 recipes, two from Cambodia, one from Chile and one from South Africa.
Let’s take a look at the subscription details first:
Cost is $5.90 – $11.85 per month depending on the size of the box.
There are two box sizes:
Duo Box: Cook 2 dishes from 2 countries per month. All recipes offer plenty of variations.
Quad Box: Cook 4 dishes from 2 to 4 countries per month. 2 dishes are the same as in the Duo Box with plenty of variations. 2 dishes can be selected from a monthly list.
For each dish, you get a simplified global recipe and freshly ground spices, pre-portioned in little pouches.
Shipping: Free U.S. shipping.
Now that we got that out of the way, let’s dive into November’s box and it’s contents!
Neorm Masour – Cambodian Culinary Spice Kit
This is a light salad with noodles and raw vegetables paired perfectly with the spices provided in a tangy lemon sauce. The ingredients of the spice kit are kampot perppercorns and you’ll need cooked meat, peanuts, and some vegetables! They also provide 2 different versions and variations.
Amok- Cambodian Culinary Spice Kit
From the recipe card picture this looks absolutely delicious! Amok is a national dish and the most common version is with fish in a coconut cream sauce seasoned with lemongrass, galangal, and markut limes. The ingredients in the spice kit are lemongrass, galangal, lemon, turmeric, markut lime, chili flakes, basil, bay leaves and lime peel. You’ll need a few more simple elements to make this dish!
Pastel de Choclo- Chile
Pastel de Choclo (corn pie) is a corn casserole that is popular throughout South America. The main layer is “pino”, which is ground meat fried with onion and typical South American spices, such as aji panca and cumin. The recipe brings versions and variations for vegetarians as well.
Bobotie- South African Culinary Spice Kit
This creamy meat pie balances a sweet-and-sour-flavor. And let me tell you, it smells amazing! They sent 2 spice kits for this dish, 1 with amchoor, yellow mustard, curry leaves, fenugreek, onion, ginger, coriander, turmeric, cayenne, cumin, cilantro, garlic, cardamon, black pepper and cinnamon and the second with lemon thyme, nutmeg and turmeric. Tell me this doesn’t sound divine!

Can’t wait to cook these and eat them up with my family. This also makes a great present for someone who loves to cook!
