Herbie’s Spice Kits remain as popular as ever, partly because nearly every kit has been inspired by suggestions from our customers.
With this in mind, we turned to social media and asked our followers to come up with their own suggestions as to what they’d like to see us make up next.
As an incentive, we promised the sender of the kit idea we chose, a new kit plus a copy of the Spice and Herb Bible 3rd Edition.
We received a tremendous response, so good in fact that we decided to give two prizes that came in for the suggestion of a kit specifically for slow cooking. Congratulations to Tania from Canberra and Maria from Coria who have won a new kit and book.
