I am always excited to try new spices – my spice rack is my secret weapon and I am not afraid to us it! I love learning what spices will best complement my vegetables, as I don’t want to overpower the dish. I want you to bite into your food and taste the warming hint of spice and seasoning.
I don’t normally cook Middle Eastern or African food, which needs to change! I was doing a little research on flavours and stumbled across an article on Egyptian flavours. I have only tried Egyptian food once and this was at a market during Ramadan on the outskirts of Sydney. It was delicious, full of spices and fresh herbs, which is great because vegetables with no garnish is a crime.
