I love to buy spices on my travels and have some beautiful whole nutmeg from my recent trip to India. Nutmeg’s a great addition to many dishes, both sweet and savoury, but it is a bit of an issue to grate. Often resulting in bloody fingers. Well, no more of that for me – I can simply pop it into the spice mill and grind. And as an extra special pleasure, the delicious scent of ground nutmeg fills the room.

The mill grates all spices, even the hardest and you can control the texture by the amount of pressure you use while twisting the top.

Feeling hot, hot, hot

For chilli lovers there’s the Gourmet Chilli Gift Set. It includes an elegant Chilli Mill and a smart 30g storage tin of Spicebar Birds Eye Chillis. So now you can evenly grate chillis to release their essential oils and all that spicy flavour.
