1642 Soup Blend

Learn more about our 1642 soup blend with Philippe and Ethné! 🎥

Created for Montreal 375th anniversary, it's a unique blend of herbs and spices from another era that’s surprisingly useful for modern kitchens. The 1642 blend is made with a good dose of black pepper, and a near-forgotten combination of both European and Canadian herbs that all come together for a dynamite all-purpose blend that flavors soups, stews, pork and vegetable dishes. 🍲

✨ SYRIAN CUMIN IS BACK! ✨

Cumin lovers, rejoice! Our favorite cumin is finally back and it was quite the journey to get here in Quebec. It wouldn't have been possible without Abdul, an old friend from Syria that now lives in Turkey. Thanks to him, we were able to keep in touch with a contact in Syria that could provide us with cumin and zaatar thyme. This incredible terroir for spices is still in the midst of a civil war, so we feel particularly lucky and grateful to be able to share these spices with all of you! 🙌

SHEET PAN CHICKEN AND VEGETABLES WITH TZATZIKI SPICES 🍗

Apart from being practical, recipes where an entire meal is prepared using just one sheet pan can make life very easy! It’s simple to change the flavour profile by simply using a different spice blend. Here, you could replace the tzatziki spice blend by our ranch or dip "staff" spice blend. To accompany this Greek version, we like serving garlic yogurt or a tzatziki sauce that was prepared in advance! 🇬🇷

✨Could you name the spices you see in this picture? ✨

When working on a new spice blend, we are always looking for that perfect balance between tastes and flavors. Depending on the intended purpose of the blend (fish, veggies, all-purpose, etc.), we'll use sweet, bitter, acidic and hot spices to create a spice blend that we love (and that you'll love too!). We're still in "r&d", but here's a clue if you want to guess it's flavor profile: ❄️🥶👆

Keep your eyes opened, it's coming soon! 👀

At the beginning of the pandemic, we reduced the minimum amount required to qualify for free shipping to $45. Under the circumstances, we felt an obligation to accommodate our clients by affording them easier access to their favourite spices by enabling them to concoct comforting dishes during the stressful months of confinement. 🏠

As of September 20th, in an effort to adapt to the increases in transportation costs, we unfortunately have to raise the minimum required for free shipping to $60.

The silver lining however 🙌 is that you still have one week to take advantage of the $45 minimum to qualify for free shipping – take advantage of it to stock up on all your favourite spices! ✨🤸🌶

EGGPLANT SALAD WITH ATRAF-AT-TIB YOGOURT

This eggplant salad could very likely have been the ancestor of Baba Ganoush, had the ingredients not been puréed. The history of Atraf At-Tib spice blend dates to medieval times and its composition illustrates the high esteem in which warm, aromatic spices are held in Middle Eastern cuisine. 🍆

Any leftover spice blend would deliciously compliment lamb or poultry, as well as vegetable dishes. If you want, you can substitute Atraf At-Tib spice blend with Thousand and One Nights or Ras-el-Hanout! 😋

15 pepper recipes to try! - Blog | Spice Trekkers

Throughout many parts of the world, cooking without peppers is simply unimaginable! In our neck of the woods, the end of summer brings with it laden market stalls, overflowing with green, yellow, red and orange peppers. Together with our fondness of peppers and mild chilies in Quebec, there is an equally impressive variety of chilies (Gorria, Jalapeno, Habanero etc.) available. 🌶🌶🌶

Granted, it’s not always easy to know which chili to choose, which is why we believe you should go with the flavour profile and taste that suit you best. Here are 15 recipes we hope will inspire you! 👇

Pistou pasta - Recipe | Spice Trekkers

Have you ever heard of pistou? From the heart of Provence in France, it's a basilic-based sauce which resembles pesto. 🌿

Here, we use it with pasta and a ton of seasonal veggies like bell peppers, tomatoes and pattypan squashes. The portions are generous, so feel free to adjust according to the number of guests! 🍅🍆🧄

​This recipe contains as many (maybe even more) vegetables as pasta. The portions are generous, feel free to adjust according to the number of guests.

ESCOFFIER'S TOMATO SAUCE 🍅

When you'll be at the market buying delicious summer tomatoes, we bet you'll be thinking about making this tomato sauce! It's a classic french recipe from chef Auguste Escoffier (1846-1935), when celebrity chef were not a thing. Salt pork, stock and carrot add richness to this sauce that's quite simple and perfect to make on a rainy Sunday.🌧

Little Italy Stuffed Vegetables - Recipe | Spice Trekkers

We like this recipe best at the end of summer, when cases of vegetables are at their most reasonable price at the market! It’s perfect for taking care of leftover rice or stale bread. Of course, feel free to switch up the meat or vegetables (the same goes for the spices). 🍅

For a Turkish-style version, use a kofte recipe to make the stuffing, add nuts and dried fruit, and serve it with a side of garlic yogurt. 👌

✨NEW - WILD ANGELICA SEEDS✨

Our Nordic spices family keeps expanding with this new spice from the Gaspésie region!

Wild Angelica seeds are collected from Angelica Archangelica, an umbellifer plant which grows in Quebec and can reach 2.5 metres in height. The seeds are harvested during the middle of the summer, when they are still green. They are then dried before reaching maturity so that they can retain their fresh, green taste of pollen. 🌿

The unique taste of wild Angelica seeds is characterized by floral, musky, fresh vegetal notes, encompassed by a slight bitterness and persistent freshness that tends to linger in the mouth. Their mysterious flavour adds a boreal profile to jams, jellies and cocktails! 🥃
