Publishers Text

Exotic, aromatic and exciting, spices play a huge part in almost every cuisine. This encyclopedia is not only a practical cookbook but an useful reference. It includes step-by-step preparation and cooking techniques and information on storage containers and equipment. Over 50 spices are shown in full-colour, showing their various forms - whole, ground, dried or fresh. Their aroma, flavour, culinary and medicinal uses and cooking tips are also listed. In addition, there are illustrated recipes for more than 35 spice blends, from Kashmiri masala to apple pie spice. Also included are over 100 recipes for every day of the week from soups and starters through beef, lamb and pork to preserves and chutneys. Try sizzling hot and sour prawn soup or a hearty lamb tagine. There are also ideas for making scented gifts and decorations, and preparing aromatic cooking oils, flavoured vinegar's and a multitude of drinks.
