Travel Spice Kit

Whether you’re a foodie, have dietary restrictions, love to cook, or just cook because it’s cheaper than going out to eat all the time, a travel spice kit is essential.

Next time you’re served subpar food (I’m looking at you airplane food) this travel spice kit can save your taste buds a lot of grief.

What you need only need two things:

  • Spices
  • Containers

The containers I use and recommend are attachable pill containers.

There are countless wonderful cooking spices and herbs that you can use for cooking and seasoning.

Some of the most common spices are:

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic
  • Cumin
  • Basil
  • Chili Powder
  • Paprika
  • Oregano
  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Crushed Red Pepper
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Onion Powder
  • Turmeric
  • Nutmeg
  • Sage
  • Cloves
  • Dry mustard
  • Fennel
  • Tarragon

The list goes on and on.

Then of course you have spice blends that can really bring a lot of flavor such as:

  • Curry
  • Five spice powder
  • Garam Masalaa
  • Hawaij

The spice kit can hold seven herbs and spices and you can mix and match spices to your own taste. A very basic and versatile kit can be great with these spices.

  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Cumin
  • Paprika
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Ginger

It also depends a lot on your cultural background too. If you grew up eating Mexican food spices you prefer will be different than if you grow up eating Indian food. Or even if you didn’t grow up on it and just have a preference.

I grew up on American and Israeli food. Mediterranean food uses a lot more spices in savory cooking than American food typically does. On the other hand, there are spices that American baking use that are not as commonly found in Israeli baking. So, the spices I use reflect both cultures.

My personal kit looks like this:
