The ethos of Rafi’s Spicebox is to ensure that its customers feel confident to go home and cook delicious food to feed their families and friends – whether that’s a bag full of goodies or simply a couple of pinches of spice and a recipe idea. Rafi’s Spicebox prides itself in having a thirst for learning and exploring the varied world of spices and Indian cookery, then passing that knowledge onto its customers.
The book is a collection of recipes from the Rafi’s Spicebox team including recipes inspired by regular visits to India along with some much-loved family favourites. Rafi’s Spicebox Cookbook has been designed to provide inspiration and introduce new techniques, textures and flavour combinations whilst using excellent seasonal British produce on offer. Most importantly, the recipes are not complicated – they are accessible and achievable for everyone who wants to cook delicious Indian food at home.
Joint owner of Rafi’s Spicebox Kevin Fernandez said, "Whilst Indian food is very popular in the UK, most people automatically think of take-aways and chicken tikka masala. We want to show people that Indian food has so much more to offer and can be the basis of a very diverse and healthy diet. We hope this cookbook gives people the confidence to use spices and enjoy cooking delicious, easy to cook Indian food at home for everyone to enjoy, every day of the week."
The Rafi’s Spicebox Cookbook is available for £20 from Rafi’s Spicebox shops (York, Sudbury, Harrogate and Newcastle Fenwick Food Hall) and via their website.
