Everyone talks about job satisfaction and its importance in relation to the contentment and well-being of the worker. We at Herbie’s Spices must be the most contented and well of all, because we’re lucky enough to be doing exactly what makes us happy and we’re able to say it’s our job! The response to Herbie’s spice shop has been overwhelming positive, and people tell us every day how wonderful it is to finally be able to access good quality ingredients so simply, and to have advice about how to use them. The “tester jars” have been a great success &endash; customers can smell, taste, and compare before they make their decision about what is going to best meet their particular need.
Our Spice Appreciation Classes have also had a positive response, and we are now fully booked until December. (They are on the first and third Thursdays of each month, and have a maximum of 12 people.) Quite a few bookings have been made for groups of three or four friends who come together for the class. If you would like to make a group of six or more for a class, just phone us and we will make a special evening on a date to suit you. It’s a friendly, informal session, with a glass of wine or mineral water and a few spicy snacks to stave off the pangs and illustrate some of the easy ways to transform average food.
