I cook recipes that I know well, I would love to try something new.

I am a confident cook, but I would appreciate not having to buy a wide range of specialist herbs and spices just for one meal.
I can cook ethnic food, but I don't cook it often and my spices get old and stale by the time I use them again. It would be great if I could have just the right amount of spices for my favourite meal,that I could guarantee were fresh every time.
I am a confident cook and would not be interested in anything new.
