Product description

Review

Award-winning writer Eleanor Ford's recipes and stories explore how centuries of spice trading and cultural diffusion changed the world's cuisine. A unique and enlightening guide to cooking with spice, the book looks at their flavour profiles and how they can be used, combined and layered - how some bring sweetness, others fragrance, heat, pungency, sourness or earthiness.<br /> <br /> There are 80 spice-infused recipes in this collection following the trails of ancient maritime trade through Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, Iran and the Emirates. Eleanor combines historical research with a travel writer's eye and a cook's nose for a memorable recipe. Interwoven are stories that explore how spices from across the Indian Ocean - the original cradle of spice - have, over time, been adopted into cuisines around the world. --From the Back Cover

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible book: Fantastic recipes that deepen every cooks’ knowledge of spice use
By David on 26 June 2022
Another fantastic book by Eleanor Ford. Recipes are easy but deliver the most amazing taste profile. Several have already become firm family favourites like tandoori chicken. The book has also helped me deepen my understanding of spices! I have already gifted this book to several friends!
