Sichuan Kung Pao

Kung Pao is a classic, spicy dish originated in the Sichuan Province in Southwest China, named after a former governor of Sichuan. Unlike the westernized version, it’s signature spice is Sichuan peppercorn. Don’t be surprised. This pepper is not hot but causes a slight numbing sensation on the tongue. Add chili pepper flakes to taste for the desired heat.

Tunesian Qalat Daqqa

Qalat Daqqa is a Tunisian five-spice blend. Our version adds exotic rosebuds. The most significant part of Qalat Daqqa is a rare spice from West Africa ‘grains of paradise’, also known as malagueta or Guinea pepper. This seasoning staple is versatile and great on meat or vegetables for grilling or in hearty soups and stews.

Yucatán Pollo Pibil

Pibil was a method to prevent the meat from spoiling. It dates back to the Maya from Yucatán. The mild yet earthy, slightly bitter achiote, aka annatto, matches perfectly to the sour orange-vinegar-juice to form the seasoning called ‘recardo rojo’. If you can get a hold of banana leaves, place one in the pot and enclose all the meat and vegetables in it.

Turkish Lahmacun

Lahmacun

Lahmacun, Lahmajoun, or translated “meat on dough” is a pizza style dish in the Eastern Mediterranean region from Lebanon to Turkey. The dough has a thin crispy-soft stone oven texture. At home, it’s traditionally baked in a pan without oil. The meat topping is mixed with summer vegetables which makes it refreshing juicy. Lahmacun is eaten rolled up with or without salad filling.

Peruvian Anticuchos

Anti-cucho translates most likely to ‘cuts from the Andes region’. Anticuchos have a long history dating back to the pre-Columbian era of the Incas. Initially, they were made with llama meat. The Spaniards changed the meat, added new spices, and put the meat on skewers. Today, Anticuchos are preferably made of beef heart, chicken, or steak and most popular during National Holidays and at summer barbecues.

Tabletop Spice of the Month:

Fennel Pollen

Fennel Pollen

Before giving up on the summer, sprinkle a magic floral note on a light dish of pasta, steamed fish, poultry, or salad. The pollen collected from flowers on the fennel plant is prized by Italian chefs. Fennel pollen is one of the most expensive spices. Similar to saffron, the harvest is extremely labor-intensive.

Greek Moussaka

Though Moussaka doesn’t origin in Greece, it became the best known of all Greek dishes. Authentic Moussaka is a casserole covered with a thick layer of béchamel sauce. The latter is quite tricky to master. This recipe is a combination with Kleftiko, a dish baked in parchment paper. It’s easy to prepare, fun to eat, and has a rich Moussaka flavor. The spice blend is enough for two dishes, so you can try the authentic version with our online recipe as well.

Moroccan Méchoui & Couscous

Méchoui

Cumin is the star of this meal. It’s the characteristic flavor of grilled Méchoui. We loved to enjoy it at the Moroccan family restaurant in Brussels. Spice it up with our version of a Harissa paste which is milder than the labor-intensive original. Add another family favorite, the couscous summer salad. So juicy and refreshing that it’s always a hit at potlucks. Use as much lemon juice as you like.

Armenian Basturma

Basturma is a pastrami style beef with a fenugreek based seasoning. Experience the intensive flavor in this adaption for short marinated grill meat. Or use the spice blend in a bell pepper dip. 

As a spicier variety of paprika, the Aleppo pepper is quite mild. Add a cold fresh summer salad or soup from cucumber and dill.

Korean Bulgogi

The aroma of Korean BBQ is mouthwatering. This seasoning includes shitake mushroom powder. Shitake is full of natural umami. Umami is the fifth taste, joining sweet, sour, salty and bitter. Korean chili pepper differs from the conventional chili pepper. It has a complex flavor and natural sweetness. We selected a milder version. Optional, Kimchi adds additional heat.
