The exquisite colours and heady aromas of Persian cuisine…

Persian cuisine has a history steeped in herbs and spices, which plays a huge role in making it one of the most celebrated cuisines in the world. This meal starts with an omelette called koko sabzi that in typically Persian style is stuffed with herbs (sabzi) and served with a beetroot yogurt (mast o laboo).

Our main features succulent marinated chicken subtly spiced with the Persian version of garam masala, advieh. On the side is fragrant saffron rice cooked with butter using a classic technique so that the base - a much fought-over delicacy called ‘tahdeeg’ - becomes crisp while the top steams.

Delicious easy recipe.

Lovely colours!


This was wonderful and I loved cooking it, highlight of the month. The kebabs were tasty and melting and the pickles were so different to anything I have cooked before. The spice boxes really stretch your cooking imagination.

Thank you.


We really enjoyed this one, would definitely have it again!

We're loving all of the vibrant colours in this picture - it looks like you did a great job, and we're so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed it!


Received a Spicery subscription for my birthday and this is my first attempt. Absolutely delicious. New way of cooking rice will become a favourite. All the family really enjoyed it!

Great debut, Duncan - we're so pleased to hear that your first meal went down a treat with the whole family! We look forward to seeing what you make next!


Easy to prepare and delicious as all the boxes have been

This all looks delicious, Jeffrey - great job! Happy spicing!


The Beetroot salad was fantastic and we added a green bean salad but the omelette was just a little bland and the herbs didn't seem to tke hold - a little too much like green grass. Easy to cook and a lovely new concept so we will persevere

We're so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed the beetroot salad, and the addition of a green bean salad is a great idea too. Sorry that the omelette wasn't such a hit, but we appreciate your feedback!


Amazing customer service backing up a super company! 99.9% of their products have been perfect and the one that I got wrong, they bailed me out. Can't recommend them enough. Makes exotic food easy to cook at home!


Quick delivery. Excellent products with a great variety of choice to suit all tastebuds. These have been well received as gifts and I have enjoyed trying the products myself. Easy to use with fantastic results, would highly recommend.


As always on time and just what I ordered, not sure what else I can say except the spices are exceptional.
