Kings, kitchens and their stories…

Episode 5: Punjab

This is one of the most well explained shows we have seen on Indian food, with this episode that accurately describes Punjab, it’s food and culinary history (and we say this as Punjabis!).

It looks at classic Punjabi dishes, our historical influences, as well as telling some amusing tales along the way! This is an excellent ‘crash course’ in understanding the heart of Punjabi food – and if it doesn’t make you want to put Punjab as a ‘must’ destination on your bucket list, we don’t know what will!

The series is in Hindi, but subtitles are available in English, French, Arabic and Chinese.

Running time: 44 minutes

This series looks at the history of street food culture within the chosen country, and how history has influenced the dishes that are now popular.

Salt Fat Acid Heat

All 4 episodes

This gets a thumbs up from us, as it is a great show to watch if you like to cook, whatever the cuisine. It looks at cookery across the world, and the elements that are consistently present in every country’s dishes, and why these elements are so important that they are the common features running throughout every country’s cuisine.

We would recommend watching all 4 episodes in this series, as they interlink in giving you a rounded perspective.

Running time per episode – 40-48 minutes

The Game Changers


If you are interested in food from a health perspective, this may be worth watching. This documentary has made our list because it looks at the health effects of eating a plant-based diet, and the traditional Punjabi diet focuses on plant-based foods.

Punjabis are known as a warrior race, and plant-based eating has not only fed the Punjabi Sikh warriors, but it has also allowed Punjab to become one of the most prosperous states in India, as it grows around 80% of India’s crops (wheat, corn, potatoes, pulses…the list goes on). Plant-based eating is also the staple of langar – the communal kitchens of Sikh Temples, which serve food day and night to all visitors.

Whether you are for or against a plant-based diet, it is always interesting to expand your knowledge on any subject area. So why not check this one out?

Running time: 1 hour 25 minutes

Karen Taylor October 2018

We are having such fun cooking from The Spice Pack Collection and all the dishes have come out brilliantly. The smell is divine and Rob, who is very fussy, is particularly impressed. All our visitors are wowed when they smell the box – we’ve been too possessive to share any with others, as yet!

As a natural therapist I particularly appreciate the healthy aspect of each dish, none of which compromise on taste. Good ingredients freshly cooked makes a big difference.

We’re going on holiday with three other couples in a couple of weeks and going to take the pack with us to cook some dishes together.

“We had a BBQ for family and friends few weeks ago and we made the Lamb Kebabs & Coconut & Sesame Chutney and Crushed Tikka New Potatoes & Mango Chicken… We received such rave reviews!! All so easy to make with the spices and sauces all provided for us…food was all delicious!”

“That was so fun…

Thank you for the zoom meet up. That was so fun. We will definitely be up for another. Please send another suitable invite and kit. We are predominately veggies so used the butternut squash version. If this continue the local takeaway will suffer for sure. Again thanks”.

Pam Brown – dinner kit with cook-along customer

“Thank you so much both…

– the class was amazing and we both really enjoyed the food. It makes so much difference knowing exactly how to do things and that we can make such tasty food which is gluten free. Jeera rice has always been my favourite but many restaurants don’t have it on the menu”.

Roy P…dinner kit with cook-along customer

“Many thanks…
...for the cook–along workshop yesterday. It was very enjoyable and the meal tasted lovely. As someone who is not a confident cook it was ideal to follow your teaching. I have recommended this to a friend of mine who is very interested in joining the next cook–along. I will definitely be doing it again”.

Ellie Pipe

I highly recommend this lovely family run local company…

... We’ve enjoyed 2 of their meal kits now along with an online cook along to show us what to do. Thank you.

Diane McGillivray

I love them all and would highly recommend…

...If I had to choose one it would be the Mango chicken.
