Spice World: A local treasure

Spice World is a star on the Hobart food scene. Those in the know come here for the vast range of spices that are now available.

If you about to prepare a dish and suddenly find that you are out of ajwan seeds or your asafoetida powder is past its prime then Spice World is the place to go.

They also have a small range of hard-to-find fresh items such as galangal root and fresh turmeric in the fridge just inside the door. There is often a box of beautifully sweet pomegranates in season as well.

We have published a recipe for ginger and turmeric tea which you can read by clicking on the link below:

We like the fact that there is often a box of okra outside the door which means that we can make something that reminds us of our time spent in New Orleans many years ago.
