About Kindred

Kindred will inspire you to come together with your loved ones, discover the food paths of your own kin, and transform your cooking and baking with rhythms that sustain you into the future.

Sisters Maria and Eva Konecsny, founders of the beloved Gewürzhaus spice stores, know that spices have the power to transform our everyday cooking. They also believe that cooking to feed our kin – whether it’s chocolate semolina porridge, tender fennel roast pork or a tray of spiced Christmas cookies – can be a deeply nourishing and connective force in our lives.

In Kindred, Maria and Eva take you into their homes to share the spices, seasonal rituals, traditions and recipes from their German heritage that bring their families around the table. Learn how to use spices in simple ways to elevate your cooking and discover key principles for spicing different types of food. Then, find comfort in more than 80 recipes, such as salted orange marmalade, lavender-crumbed chicken schnitzel and spiked brown cherry cake. Treasured rituals include egg dyeing at Easter, Mothers’ Day mushroom foraging and the Bunter Teller, a plate of colourful cookies to share at Christmas time.


Sisters Maria and Eva Konecsny founded Gewürzhaus in 2010 when they opened their first store in Melbourne, and now have stores across Australia. Gewürzhaus sells more than 350 singleorigin spices and mills over 100 exclusive small-batch blends. For Maria and Eva, cooking from the heart has always been an integral part of connecting four generations of women in their family. This goes back to their greatgrandmothers, Oma Rosa and Oma Liesel, who nurtured them in the kitchen from day dot. These women, in many ways, laid down the foundations of Gewürzhaus, putting care and love into the meals they prepared for their families.
