The world is full of food. This blog post will introduce you to two secret ingredients you must try. Plus a bonus third!
The first is little known, but GREAT TASTE AWARD WINNER 2020!
An incredibly nutty and smooth black sesame paste made from 100% Black sesame seeds.
Black Tahini embodies the incredible nutty taste these special seeds produce. Their incredible culinary versatility is matched by nutritional strength, with just 1/3 cup containing your daily calcium intake. It can be used the same way as standard tahini but offers a richer, deeper flavour – not to mention its stunning colour.

The second hails from the middle east, enjoyed especially Iraq and Israel – and known for its distinct, vibrant zing. A traditional blend of mango, chili, salt and spices like turmeric and fenugreek, our Amba Sauce is essential for flavour lovers. The perfect partner for eggplant, tahini and any other meal you wish to enliven.

Firstly, what is Medjool?
A delicious, rich vegan spread of 100% pitted, pressed Medjool dates and cacao.
This delectable spread combines the unique earthiness of raw cacao with the unparalleled sweetness and caramel texture of Medjool dates, an incredibly nutritious raw superfood with Paleo qualities.
With its distinct chocolatey cacao and date flavours, this 100% vegan spread is the perfect ingredient for bringing new heights to your home baking.
