Exotic spices and their uses

Spices can be intimidating! Even though they come in a pretty Eat.Art tub, with suggested usages and interesting stories, by simply stating ‘Indian Rogan Josh’ or ‘Spanish Paella’ on the label, you may look past it as it might not be something you’d make or know how…


This post is going to try to encourage you to think a little differently about how we view these little tubs of flavour. My favourite way to look at them is as ‘inspiration’ – a way of injecting a lot of flavor into any dish, very quickly. Below I’ve included a few family favourites and suggested a few spices mixes to add. I love playing around with these spices – one of my favourites was using the Goan Fish Curry spice to make pickled fish. Let us know if you try any of these twists on a favourite – or if you discover something new!
