    A tin of my special Marrakesh blend. This is my favorite spice blend patterned after the great Ras el Hanout blend of Morocco but adapted to an American kitchen and style. You can't get this anywhere else. Ground in small batches and custom blended with organic spices and herbs.

    I am making a handful of custom handmade red boxes and one has your name on it for $100. There will be a limited amount of these made due to the difficult process of making the red paper and I'll fill yours with a random holiday assortment of fresh ground spices and herbs. Each box contains 6 tins of between 2-4 oz each of organic, fair trade spices ground in small batches.

    The Gift Box Set includes 4 Handmade Spice Boxes filled with organic spices. 4 spice boxes = 4 great holiday gifts for family, friends, foodies or business clients. Each of the 4 boxes comes with a red ribbon bow tied around it. Let's put it this way - by getting the 4 pack and giving them as gifts, you're saying "I'm thoughtful, creative, unique, worldly and a downright cool person" because you can't get these anywhere else on the planet. And you get to benefit from the wonderful meals the recipient will cook. That about sums it up... And that's why we'll love you forever if you get this 4 pack.

I'll come with some boxes filled with organic, fair trade spices and herbs for the guests to play with during the party. This is hands on fun.
