‘Spice’ up your life

2018-12-19 06:00

AFTER having supplied Pietermaritzburg with pots and crockery for the last 30 years, one Pietermaritzburg businessman is set to expand with the launch of an exclusive spice shop, Spice Rack, on December 22, much to the pleasure of local chefs and cooks.

The Spice Rack has set itself apart from other spice stores in that they will exclusively be stocking all kinds of Allifa spice products as well as Shan boxed spice products.

“We ran as a coffee shop for about a year and then decided to go full time into a spice shop after we noticed there was a gap in the market as many locals to the area had to go into Raisethorpe for their spice needs,” said the owner.

The shop is located at the Brookside Mall to cater for the people of Mountain Rise, Manor, and the CBD as well as the rest of Pietermaritzburg.

The Spice Rack’s grand launch at the Brookside store will offer much entertainment in the form of various special guests, such as Allifa’s representatives, who will be creating, and offering the audience a taste of, various traditional savoury snacks and milkshakes. The famous Instagram page Kitchen Queens, which showcases various cooking hotspots, foods, and desserts, will be in attendance as well.

Those who attend the launch also stand a chance to win one of four Allifa’s hampers, which include various Allifa goodies.
