The Spice of (Monday Morning Cooking Club’s) Life

Does this answer all your spicy questions?

So many of our wonderful recipes have the usual spices – the ones we all recognize – such as cinnamon, cumin, coriander, paprika and turmeric – and many have more usual and unusual spice mixes like curry powder and sumac to ras el hanout and baharat.

We always make a point of explaining in the recipe what the spice or spice mix is made of, and often give suggestions on how to make your own at home. We have bouquet garni in our Beef Bourguignon, ras el hanout in our slow cooked beef and baharat in our chicken tebeet. And in our Claypot Snapper, you can find Monday Morning Cooking Club’s  very own ‘Ata’s Spice Mix’.

Here’s a great guide from Health Perch which will hopefully answer all your spice questions.

If you still have spice questions, we’d love to hear them…and we promise that someone in our diverse online Monday Morning Cooking Club community can find the answer.
