Indian Spice Kit--Large
I am always stumped at what to give my father for Christmas. Every year for as long as I can remember he has always said the only thing he wants is "peace and tranquility." While this is nice in theory, it is not the easiest present to package. Especially when my brother and I were constantly bickering and the dogs were constantly barking.
Given that my father does the majority of the cooking and is somewhat of a foodie, I decided on an edible gift. When I stumbled across Cook Outside the Box I knew that any of the products would be perfect. I decided on the large Indian spice kit, but there are also Chinese, Ethiopian, and chai tea kits available. It came packaged in a tin box with all the spices clearly labeled and included three recipes that incorporated the spices. My father hasn't tried any of the recipes yet, but raves about the spice variety and how great it smells.
The seller was very friendly and even emailed me to let me know that, due to the holidays, it would take a few days longer to ship the package than usual. Other sellers I've dealt with didn't even bother to tell me when a package had shipped, so a personal email was a nice touch. It arrived far ahead of Christmas, and the spice containers stayed securely shut (I was worried there would be red powder covering the entire package).
All in all...
Great for housewarming gifts, foodie friends, and anyone that wants to try new recipes without investing in full-size spices.
