Requirements: .ePUB reader, 354 MB
Overview: Harness the power of spices to take your dishes from simple to spectacular with 125 exciting recipes, plus find easy spice blends you can use many ways.

Spices: You probably have a cabinet full of them, but do you know how to make the most of them? Spiced opens up the world of possibility hidden in your own pantry, with six chapters, each of which shares a way to use spices to amp up the flavor of your cooking, along with foolproof recipes that put these simple techniques to work. Sprinkle a finishing salt you make from sea salt and herbs on seared white fish fillets to make them special. Make a different roast chicken every week by applying a different rub. Learn the best spices to use in curries-and when to add them for fragrant (not dusty) results. Add flavor-and texture-with homemade blends (you’ll eat your spinach when it’s topped with pistachio dukkah). Infuse condiments with spices (try chipotle ketchup on a burger). With the following six simple techniques, plus vibrant recipes, you’ll find yourself not only spooning chili powder into the chili pot but making the chili powder yourself, or flavoring desserts with saffron or cardamom rather than just cinnamon.
