The launch of Yesterday's Curry spice blends
My venture inspired by the year in lockdown
Hello everyone! Welcome back to Yesterday’s Curry, my newsletter which for the past year has been a sporadic assortment of features, interviews and illustrated recipes as I grappled through the lockdown learning about Goan cuisine.
Since November, and my piece about my day with Mervyn, I have launched Yesterday’s Curry the spice brand, and have been spending my days roasting and blending, and then roasting and blending again until I perfected a set of spice blends to make 3 of my favourite Goan curries: fish curry, chicken xacuti and pork vindalho. As those of you who follow me on instagram may have seen, last week I made the leap into a commercial kitchen, and now I am making fresh batches of my Goan spices on a weekly basis, from Mission Kitchen in Nine Elms, a London based shared kitchen coworking space. My range of products will be growing in the coming months as I plan to bring out new curry spice blends and meal kits, so watch this space, and follow my spices on instagram!
While I am in my commercial kitchen, I will not only be blending spices but I will also be working on this newsletter weekly, bringing you recipes, illustrations and more features and interviews, all based around curries. In order to be able to spend more time on writing, I will be including a paid membership tier in my newsletter starting on the first Sunday of April, but for all of March everything will be open to free subscribers to give you a taste of what will follow. It would mean a lot if some of you decide to sign up for a paid membership, there’ll be lots of content coming with it!
For those of you who would like to try the curries, you can buy my spices here: Yesterday’s Curry Spice Blends and as a special thank you to all of my newsletter subscribers, I am offering everyone who reads this a 25% discount in my store using the code newsletter25 at checkout. This is available until Sunday 13th March, and is currently only available to customers in the UK (sorry - I hope to deliver overseas soon!)
In next Sunday’s newsletter, I will give a run down of what to expect going forward, but for now, welcome back to Yesterday’s Curry!
