Here’s a closer look at our August spices…….
Fattoush Culinary Spice Kit
Classic Middle Eastern Fattoush is a fresh salad seasoned with ground tart sumac berry and topped with crunchy pita chips. Serve it with fried chicken or use the Lebanese Baharat blend for oven baked vegetables. Alternatively, find online the recipe for another Lebanese classic: Shawarma.
Ingredients: Allspice, black pepper, cinnamon, fenugreek, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and sumac.
Filipino Chicken Inasal Culinary Spice Kit
Chicken Inasal from the Filipino City of Bacolod has an earthy-peppery taste with a hint of nutmeg and a slight citrus flavor. The key ingredient is annatto or achiote powder. This spice from the “lipstick tree” colors the chicken orange-red and is very popular in Latin and Filipino cooking.
Ingredients: Annatto, lemongrass, lemon peel, ginger.
Georgian Ajapsandali Culinary Spice Kit
Caucasian Ajapsandal is a perfect summer dish since this eggplant stew with fresh herbs tastes best cold. Lamb or beef can be added. Traditionally, it has a little heat from the fresh chili pepper. The spice blend includes marigold which is also called Georgian saffron.
Ingredients: Coriander, marigold, garlic, methi, paprika, caraway, black pepper, fenugreek, hyssop, mint, savoury, chili.
Australian Aussie Burger Culinary Spice Kit
The Aussie Burger is also called “Burger with a lot” due to its many layers. Characteristic ingredients are beetroot, pineapple, and a sunny side up egg. Add a fruit tomato side salad with a kick from precious Tasmanian pepperberries, also called Mountain Pepper. Notice the slightly purple cooler that the berries develop in the vinaigrette.
Ingredients: Tasmanian pepperberries.
SpiceBreeze Review August 2018 – Final Thoughts
This month’s SpiceBreeze delivery teaches us about the Philippines and provided us with a wonderful selection of recipes. We received a great collection of spices, including one I’ve never heard of before – Tasmanian Pepperberries. In regards to the recipes, we get to test out an Aussie Burger, an eggplant dish, a peppery chicken, and a fresh summer salad. I love that SpiceBreeze introduces me to new spice blends each month and gets me excited about testing out new recipes. It’s a great subscription for anyone who likes to spend time in the kitchen.
