• Herbs and spices are a great way to add flavour to your meals. Here is a list of herbs and spices every kitchen needs – and cannot do without.

    Chicken Spice

    This is a firm favourite! Chicken spice is super versatile and adds a punch of meaty flavour to even the blandest dish. Is your samp recipe a bit bland? Add some chicken spice. Chicken neck recipe for dinner tonight? Just add chicken spice to the mix. It adds a delicious flavour that will make the whole family go for seconds. Or thirds!

    Barbeque Spice

    A close contender for the top spot is barbeque spice. Ideal for braai meats, stews and soups. Barbeque spice is your best friend when it comes to red meat dishes. Why not try it on your baked potato, fried egg or ox liver recipe?

    Curry Spice

    Our beloved curry powder comes into the top three. Ideal for curries, stews and even lighter meals like a chicken salad. Curry powder is versatile, delicious and a must-have in your kitchen cupboard. Add it to a yummy sugar bean curry or a traditional vegetable curry for an instant “kick” to your meals.


    This super-spice is good, not only with sweet dishes, but works well in savoury dishes too. Many Middle-Eastern recipes recommend a hint of cinnamon to add a beautiful aroma to curries and even tea. Try it!

    Garlic Powder

    Dried, crushed garlic, this spice can sub-in for fresh garlic in most recipes. It’s the secret weapon for tasty potatoes and rice that excites the whole family. Just make sure not to use it too liberally.

    Lucky for you, Knorrox has just launched a delicious range of spices. Why not try them all and see which one you like best? Smells of excitement in the kitchen…
