Living a spicy life

Last night we headed out for dinner down Lygon Street and stumbled across Gerwurzhaus, Herb and Spice Merchants.

If you have ever been to Jaspers, Caffine Merchants on Brunswick Street the concept is similar. Lovely herbs an spices on display and lots of little gadgets to support the epicurian in you.

My hubby is a spice-o-phile and he fell in love with the shop (I think that he also fell in love with the owner who speaks German as well, but that is another story ...). It was very very hard not to buy lots of things there. But we controlled ourselves and came away with some Persian Salt and Gluwein spices. Such a pity that our christmas shopping had already been done :(

Checking out their web site, they have lots of lovely recipes including Oma Rosa's Gulasch and Wild Rabbit Ragout .. both sound yummy!

We will definately be regular visitors. You can't help but feel uplifted by the various herbs and spices that tantilise your nostrils as you walk in the shop.

The shop has been open for about 6 months and we wish the owners all the best in their endevours.
