The Spicery olive recipe kit

To celebrate our round-up of spice trips this month, we’ve teamed up with The Spicery, whose mail-order recipe kits bring our recipes to life!

Take a look in your spice cupboard – how long have some of those jars been in there? Fresh is best, and with The Spicery you can reduce waste with its recipe kits that fit through the letterbox.


Each kit contains measured out, freshly ground spices, expertly sourced from around the world, along with recipe cards to help you create an aromatic, spice-filled feast at home. Now you can cook a tried-and-tested olive recipe with our special olive kit.

Inside the olive kit

At the heart of this Turkish-inspired feast is keskek, a rich, spiced lamb stew that’s thickened with bulgar wheat and finished with a topping of chickpeas fried with aleppo pepper paste.

To accompany the stew are soft Turkish gozleme; flatbreads stuffed with leeks, halloumi and aromatic spices. To temper the heat there’s cacik, a cooling yogurt and cucumber dip and a crunchy fresh shepherd’s salad of cucumber, tomatoes, herbs and walnuts. Each box will contain:

• A tried-and-tested olive magazine recipe card for this Turkish feast, to serve four people.

• Eight bags of freshly ground pre-mixed and measured-out spices, so no waste! You’ll need to add the fresh ingredients listed on the recipe.

Just £6.95, including delivery!

Full recipe available in The Spicery kits and online here.
