This is the ideal package then to get you started. We have partnered with the amazing Emma Spitzer to create a package of her signed debut book 'Fress' alongside our best selling Middle Eastern Spice Tin with 10 super fresh spices and spice blends.
Fress, in Yiddish, means: -to eat copiously and without restraint-. BBC1 Masterchef finalist Emma Spitzer brings together a melting pot of Middle-Eastern and Eastern European flavors with this contemporary Jewish cookbook. Big on flavor and spice, this is happy, sociable food to feed the soul.
