Herbie’s, Fully and Aromatically Loaded.
A work colleague of mine recommended me to visit a herbs specialist in Balmain called surprise surprise, Herbie’s. It has the most amazing collection of herbs. From medium spicy Spanish paprika powder, dried kaffir lime leaves, to green mango powder (a souring agent). But I am most impressed about the pre-mixed Indian spices to take home to recreate those classic Indian dishes at the comfort of your own home without the guilty feeling of using pre-made jar sauces. Even better, it has a recipe on the back of each pre-mixed dry curry packs. Simply brilliant.
The staff at the shop was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the use and orgins of herbs. We even exchanged some heart-felt culinary experience on how dried herbs differ fresh herbs. If I am not careful, I would easily spend all my hard-earned cash on these exotic babes.
