Santa Maria Taste Rockstar (002)In a nutshell, we want chefs to love spices and herbs as much as we do.

Chef, Ask Yourself…

How much do I know about herbs and spices?

Herbs and spices matters as much as you care about the provenance of your meat or wine. A lot of chefs don’t know that every herbs and spices are graded based on their sizes, the bigger the size the more essential oil meaning more flavour. Why buy high quality meats but not season it with great quality herbs and spices?

“The education of spices is so limited, we take for granted a peppercorn is a peppercorn, yet tasting the different kinds has really opened my eyes to see there is a complete difference.”
Richard Davies, Executive Chef at Calcot Manor
