Tandoori

Well-known Tandoori BBQ develops its flavor in a fragrant yogurt-marinade. The spice blend includes ajowan, an extraordinary aromatic Indian spice. Ajowan has a thyme-anise-like taste, slightly bitter and nutty. Dip the grilled goodness into a mint chutney from fresh herbs.

Cajun Shrimp

We are glad to bring a taste of New Orleans to your home with this Cajun recipe for shrimp or fish filets. For the side, we included amchoor powder which is made from dried green mangoes. It brings a fruity flavor to the coleslaw to pair with the citrus flavor in the red bell pepper.

Swedish Köttbullar

Köttbullar

IKEA made them famous around the world: Köttbullar, the national dish of Sweden. Surprisingly, in 2018, Sweden revealed Turkey as its origin. In the 18th century, King Charles XII fell in love with Turkish meatballs and introduced them to his home country. Today, Köttbullars are usually served with mashed potatoes, creamy brown sauce, and sour-sweet sides: cucumber salad and lingonberry jam.

Caribbean Melon Curry

The island group of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea includes, for instance, the Virgin Islands, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and Saint Lucia, but not Saint Marie.

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.
