The Spice Route

The Spice Route was established in North West Sutherland in 2013. We  develop high quality regional Indian and Sri Lankan recipes combining local ingredients with the finest spices. We built quite a reputation for bringing the authentic flavours of the Punjab, Rajasthan, Goa, Kerala and Sri Lanka to the North West Highlands. Now based in Aberdeenshire we have launched The Spice Route Cookery School.

Cookery School

Our first sessions at the MacRobert Hall in Tarland late in 2023 were a great success. We have a series of demonstrations in Ballater and hands on courses in Aboyne running through 2024 where we follow the Spice Route from Kashmir to Delhi, Kerala and Sri Lanka. Everyone enjoyed our first "hands-on" session at Aboyne Academy on Saturday 3rd February and we have more events coming up from March.

Here’s what our customers say

“One of the best curries I have ever eaten .. these people really know what they are doing”

“The food is out of this world - interesting, unusual and delicate.”

“We've had a few meals from here now, and they're absolutely brilliant. The food is professionally prepared and can be taken home either defrosted to cook on the day or frozen to pop in our freezer.”
