herbs and spices site

Found the following when Googling in response to Mac's request for an online supplier of whole turmeric, which seems to be rarer than hens' teeth.

They don't list it amongst their products, but they do say they've won an award for it, so they may be worth contacting.

Another excellent place is The Spice Shop, . It's a tiny place, about the size of a transit van, but it has every herb and spice in existence, plus all kinds of dried fruits and nuts, oils, weird vinegars, sake... altogether, it's a wonderful place. And it's 100 metres from my house, so they've got to know me quite well - I'm not connected with them in any way other than as a customer.

They do mail order (from a warehouse somewhere else) and yes, they have whole turmeric.

I also heartily recommend the barbecue cookbook that they have produced (available online). Quite wonderful.

While I'm on about books, I hope everyone knows about Books For Cooks, a specialist bookshop bang opposite the Spice Shop: . They are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, and have thousands of cookbooks. Very dangerous place.
