Paella is a traditional Spanish dish originating from the countryside around the city of Valencia. It is made of rice, chicken, rabbit and mixed vegetables seasoned with tomato sauce, saffron, garlic and a blend of spices. It was once the traditional lunch of local farmers, who cooked readily available ingredients in the characteristic large and flat pan that is still used to prepare authentic Paella. This recipe has then become the worldwide symbol of Spanish gastronomic tradition be it prepared the original way or with seafood or mixed meat and fish.
This blend includes all the traditional flavours of traditional Paella. It also infuses a vibrant colour to rice, sauces and soups thanks to our premium saffron. Smoked paprika, chili and black pepper give this blend a spicy edge perfect for seasoning all kinds of meat, fish and vegetables.

Japanese Katsu Curry with Chicken or Beef, Potatoes, and Carrots Tonkatsu (Japanese Pork Cutlet) and Rice, Panko-Crusted Portobello Mushrooms, Japanese Curry Puffs or Pot Pies
Japanese Katsu curry is a special blend made of number of different spices originally from Japan. This blend contains the most traditional spices found in locally produced blends: turmeric, black pepper, chili, star anise, fennel seed, fenugreek seed, coriander and cumin. Curry was first introduced in Japan in early XXIst century by English traders and, for this reason, it was considered by the Japanese to be a typical Western dish.
Katsu curry is traditionally a chicken dish but why not try it vegan? Seitan has a wonderful texture for replacing chicken in dishes and would be delicious breaded in panko or if you’re gluten-free why not try aubergine fritters with lashings of katsu curry sauce? Pair with steaming jasmine rice for a real treat.

Pesto is one of the most famous Italian sauces in the world and its classic fresh aroma immediately evokes images of Summer and sun-kissed seascapes. It is a native sauce of the Liguria region, where it has been produced since the Middle Ages. It is made by combining crushed local basil, garlic, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese in a mortar, together with extra virgin olive oil. Our Z&Z blend also contains sun dried tomatoes, which adds warmth and delicious sunshine to the fresh and herbal aroma.
Adding a gorgeously fresh and bright flavour to dishes, the Pesto Z&Z blend is perfect for any dish where one would use a wet pesto sauce such as hot and cold pasta dishes, sprinkled on top of pizzas, blended with olive oil as a marinade for meat or fish, or simply tossed through steamed vegetables for an aromatic twist.
