Always keep Rafi meal pack in larder. Authentic ingredients, freshly picked to your heat preference. Great food ready in 30 minutes, better than any takeaway.

As well as being well-stocked, they make up all the spices for a specific curry. And they do gift packs!

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We're very pleased to hear that the Xacutti went down a treat - a shame that there hadn't been any left to freeze, however, this is truly a compliment to your cooking!
