Spices can transform a meal into a feast for the palate and add surprising flavours to your dishes. Before they became available to everyone, spices were the ingredients that inspired explorers and global trade. The ground pepper you add to your salad was once worth its weight in gold! This richly illustrated handbook provides a wealth of knowledge about organic spices, their cultivation, their storage, and how to use them when cooking. Sorted by their different flavour notes, from mild and harmonic to spicy, the organic spices are each presented in a short profile, followed by more than one hundred appetising recipes for every taste and occasion.
