RawSpiceBar is a monthly spice blend subscription. Every month for $6, you’ll receive small batch, freshly ground spice blends by top chefs for home cooks, plus recipes to create authentic cuisine with the spices. They are launching the shop soon to buy more of your favorite spices! I really look forward to seeing their inventory — the subscription picks have been great, and I want to see their whole catalog of blends.
Each month, you’ll receive three freshly ground spice mixes that can be used to create dishes evocative of the featured region of the world. The November 2016 shipment featured the food and spices of Pondicherry, a city in India.

Pondicherry is a melting pot of different cultures, including Romans, Chinese, Dutch, English, and French. However, the strongest influence that remains at present and evident even in the local cuisine is the French. To introduce us to the unique flavors of Pondicherry, RawSpiceBar included the following spice blends in this month’s shipment: Indo-French Vadouvan and Peppercorn Chai.
Since it’s Thanksgiving season, we also received Unpumpkin Pie Spice in the package. Yum! It’s a versatile blend that you can put into your coffee, mix to your ice cream, or add to your cookies and pies. Very healthy too!
Pumpkin Cornbread and Pumpkin Donuts? Sounds delicious!
RawSpiceBar’s Indo-French Vadouvan was packed with strong flavors and aroma! Ingredients include shallots, onion, garlic, fenugreek, fennel, and curry leaves.
Vadouvan is commonly used as a base for curry, but you can also use it to level up your scrambled eggs and squash soup – as suggested in the recipe cards.
RawSpiceBar’s Peppercorn Chai is the perfect add-on to your hot milk tea fix. Chai is a staple of Indian cuisine. Very aromatic!
If you’re not a milk tea fanatic, you can still use Peppercorn Chai to add flavor to other dishes like the Apple Clafoutis featured in the recipe card.
We also got a coupon code for The Thanksgiving Flavor Kit!
Opening a box from RawSpiceBar is always a pleasure. Their blends provide a wonderful opportunity for my family to come together to eat delicious homemade food all while experiencing another country’s culture. I can’t wait to see what they send out next month!
