An enticing French blend stemming from the 17th century. It adds distinct depth to popular dishes. The “four” mixed spice blend is made with 100% natural ingredients. All of our blends are hand-crafted in the UK. The finest ingredients are sourced so that we don’t compromise on quality. QUATRE ÉPICES is super versatile. Its dynamism lends itself to cooking, baking and cocktail making.

This wonderful 17th century blend originates from the beautiful French port of St. Malo which is a historical walled port city where food, history and passion meet. Dubbed the true pearl of Brittany, pirates added enormous wealth to the city by bringing in incredible treasures that included commodities like spices. During the 17th century, extraordinary changes were taking place in the dining habits of European society with the most important and dramatic shift in culinary taste led by the creativity of French cooks. These changes, ultimately derived from Arab and Persian culinary traditions, use herbs and spices and incorporate them into dishes. Quatre Épices is an enticing French blend stemming from that period and adds distinct depth to popular dishes. Commonly used in French-inspired stews, soups, pâté and charcuterie, it's also perfect in baking cakes and biscuits. Often it can be found in Middle Eastern cooking probably as a result of when France was the colonial power of Lebanon, Morocco and Algeria.
Warm, peppery and sweet with an earthy base.

How to use
Perfect for use in French-inspired stews, soups, braised meats, sausages, terrines, pâté and charcuterie, as well as gingerbread and butter biscuits. It goes great with Sunday Roast Pork, a glazed ham, or even a pumpkin pie, come those autumnal days. This four-spice blend is also considered excellent with game. Our Scandinavian friends often use it in cookies and pastries. Recently we baked a gorgeous sponge cake with some orange zest and walnuts for Easter, proving that this spice works for all seasons and all occasions.

Some of our blends will be gluten free, but it is important to note that some spices and herbs naturally contain gluten.

It is also important to note that these have been packaged in a facility that handles, stores, and processes tree nuts and celery. This product may contain traces of celery, gluten, mustard, sesame, soy and nuts.

Always store in a dry place. A pantry, press or cupboard will suffice. We have made that easy by housing our blends in dark amber mason jars under an aluminium lid. Aluminium reflects both heat and light, making it the perfect material for food preservation under its closing. Spice and herb blends typically have a use by date, in our case, 24 months from manufacture.
