It’s no wonder the sensual experience of letting something delicious melt into our tongues best teaches us what it’s like to enjoy something completely, to slow down enough so that the full range of its flavor palette stretches out and unfolds like tingly muscles after a night’s sleep.

Of course, savouring’s a two-way street—the food’s got to be good! The senses must be pleased!
The items in this zesty kit come from regions that were once hubs of the ancient spice trade.
