Buy Greek Gyro Spices
Greece may not be the first thought that comes to mind when you're thinking about spices, but it's one of the world's biggest spice consumers. Greece is also traditionally one of the central ports in the spice trade, being very close to Africa and also the most common point of entry/exit for ships on the way to Asia. As a result, most greek food is rich in spices and herbs: cumin, paprika, oregano, thyme feature heavily in most greek food.
Gyro is one of Greece's most wellknown signature foods outside Greece, and you've almost certainly seen it even if you didn't know the name. A Greek Gyro is meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie - just like kebabs or lamb rotisserie. In Greece it's usually pork or chicken, heavily flavoured with strong spices. After roasting, it's served sandwiched inside a flatbread with salad, fresh cheese and sauces.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
