I was searching around for a Cajun Spice blend online and came across this shop, www.thespiceoflife.co.uk

The layout of the website is simple but effective. It is bright, clear looking and isn't overloaded with images, just enough to show you what you're going to buy.
Each category of products is set out in an A-Z format so you can easily find the item you are looking for. There is information about each spice / herb / blend etc.. along with pictures and recipes to accompany. There is also a Search page which adds even more functionality to the site.

There is a huge variety of stock and you'll be able to find pretty much everything needed to Spice up your dishes, including;

Easy Peasy Curries (Usually betwwen £1.25-£2.25 per set)

Herbs and Spices (10p for a Bouquet Garni Sachets - £1.35 for 45g of BBQ spice blend)

Chillies (Anahaim Chile - 40g = £2 or Habanero Chile - 20g = £2.40)

Deli Products
Hot Sauces
Essential Oils

The "Easy Peasy Curries" they sell are a nice personal touch. There are many different curries to choose from; when you purchase a pack you are sent the herbs/spices needed to make the dish along with a suggested recipe. This was great for me as I enjoy making curries, but didn't want to buy an entire jar of each spice needed. This way, for a reasonable price you can create a wholly home-made curry which doesn't taste generic, like a stir-in sauce.

This shop has a good stock, with reasonable prices and is based in the UK so delivery isn't too expensive. Delivery time was a few days from order to door. The site has a simple payment system and they accept Credit/Debit Cards.

I recommend this shop if you like cooking with spices but don't get time to go to a specialist shop.

Not a bad review but prices etc. and a bit more info about the site would help. If you edit I'll re-rate, just leave me a message in my guestbook.
