Q: Hey Piquant, pretty sure from yer photos that yer shipment fits into a typical postal box i.e. envelope size, but could u confirm? I don't wanna go up to the post-office to p/u every month :) Ta! BAsked by Beth M., March 2020
That's correct that our monthly subscription product is sent to yer regular mailbox (if you live in the USA). We ship 'em in 6x10 flat envelopes via USPS first class mail to help keep our prices as low as possible. For international orders, we have to purchase postage for small parcels due to regulations, and while they are mailed in the same flat envelopes that fit in post boxes, each country's postal service has their own regulations on where to deliver items shipped as small parcels.
Yes, it should fit. The spices come in little, zip-lock, flat containers, and the total package is pretty flat and not much bigger than the recipe cards that are included.
Q: Hi, do you list the individual spices and amounts that are used in the blends in case we want to make it again? Asked by Christina R., August 2020
Hi! Yes, ingredients are listed on the package. If you want to make the recipes again, you can now reorder the spice blends! To reorder, log into your account and click the link 'spice store' in the menu. If you received a gift, you'll have to email us for the private link until we launch a redesigned store later in 2020. We don't release our spice blend recipes as those are proprietary.
Q: Do you have substitution recipes for alternative meats (e.g. no pork/beef diets, etc)Asked by Laura K., July 2020
Hi Laura, we do offer ingredient substitution ideas and alternative recipes in the digital version of each of our recipes. You can see all of our digital recipes on our website piquantpost 'dot' com.
Q: Are there any oils added as binders to the spices. I have an allergy to canola and cottonseed and have to always check spice mixes. I would love to try something like this if it's safe for me.Asked by Marissa M., May 2020
Hi Marissa, we blend all of our own product and do not use any oils as binders. All ingredients are listed on the package.
My husband and I love cooking together. Now we can create meals with so many new flavors to try! We did a malva cake with the Zanzibar zest and it was loved by the family! This makes us excited to try all of them. If you love to cook and enjoy new flavors I would definitely recommend trying this!
My first Piquant and I have not used them yet but they seem good! The only thing to make them better would to be able to choose a selection
This is by far my favourite spice subscription, I’ve tried a few different ones. The recipes are extremely easy to follow and delicious & I love that they have the spices for sale on their website in case you want to buy more for future recipes! They even have alternative recipes on their website in case you want to make something different with the spices you receive. So far I’ve made 2 out of the 4 recipes and I’m literally in LOVE! I’m basically a pro chef now thanks to Piquant Post!
Wow, so glad to hear you're enjoying our service!! Thanks for the great review, Sarah. 🤗
This is a wonderful, reasonably priced way to add a surprise to your month! I have tried all the recipes so far and they have all been winners. I like the fact that the products sent are currated to a specific region. It is amazing!
This is a great way to try new recipes without having to pick up a bunch of different ingredients. The recipe cards are really helpful too.
We have made 2 of the 4 recipes in past week. Have really enjoyed them and look forward to more international cuisine recipes! So fun!
I signed up for this box on a whim earlier this year and I loved it! I looked forward to seeing what new recipes I'd get every month. Not every recipe was for me (I wish there was a way to say no seafood recipes or like, only vegetarian recipes or something when you sign up) but they have alternative recipes for the spices you get on their website and I really liked that. If you're looking for a way to try new things with your cooking, Piquant Post gives you a good excuse at a really decent price.
We have received 3 shipments so far and this was the first chance we had to make one of the menu items. We went for the Bali Spiced Strip Steak and that seasoning was amazing! That was the most flavorful strip steak I have had in a long time. We are excited about the other items we have as well. We bough cod just so we could make another recipe this week. The price is so good for what you get and the recipes look so good.
Well packaged and great quality. I like the fact that each spice has enough for 2 of the corresponding recipe. You can either make the featured recipe twice or use the leftover spice to create your own masterpiece.
