Ras El Hanout
It’s all in the name! Literally meaning ‘top of the shop’, this complex Moroccan blend of spices traditionally represents the best a spice merchant has to offer. Amongst the spices included are the bold flavours of cumin and cloves paired with the more delicate and fragrant flavours of rose petals and lavender. This blend lends itself especially well to slow cooked dishes, as the individual flavour of each spice, from robust and spicy to sweet and floral, is perfectly balanced out as the dish cooks.
Ras El Hanout is also perfect for livening up such things as a simple lentil soup, a vegetable stew or to sprinkle on meat, chicken or fish before grilling
