Longing to travel again? Looking for new recipe inspiration? You’re in the right place! One of our team’s favorite ways to learn about new cuisines and flavors is through travel, and since we’re limited this year, we thought we’d try exploring in a new way.
You’re officially invited to join us for our first ever summer cookbook club, where we’ll learn about a new global cuisine each month.
The Official Lineup

- July: Sababa by Adeena Sussman (buy a signed copy from us and The Spice House will send you a package of Middle Eastern spices to inspire your cooking. Plus, that playlist!)
- August: My Mexico City Kitchen by Gabriela Camara (buy a signed copy from us and The Spice House will send you a package of Mexican spices to inspire your cooking. Plus, that playlist!))
Live Cooking Demos
Every Thursday at 11am PST, a different member from our team will be doing a live cooking demo on Instagram. Mark your calendar so you don’t forget, and join us there! If you’d like to cook along with us, great, or you may just want to pop in and see how it’s done!
