This warming and aromatic spice with a pungent anise-like flavour is frequently used in baking, desserts and liquors across a range of cuisines including Indian, Middle-Eastern and European. It is also a popular flavour addition to cheeses.
Founded in 1994, Cape Herb & Spice is based in Cape Town, a vibrant and cosmopolitan city situated at the tip of Africa. Our location is significantly situated along the West-African trade route explored by sailors in the 1400’s. The Dutch East India Company, a dominant force in the spice trade, went on to establish a settlement in Cape Town in the mid 1600’s, which acted as a midway point for their exchange with Asia. This mix of European, African and Asian cultures has given the city a rich culinary heritage, and it's against this background that the Cape Herb & Spice company was formed.
