Along the Spice Trail

Along the Spice Trail

This week we're on the spice trail ... Choosing Diana Henry recipes that use exotic and aromatic spices.  Spices come in a dizzying array of colours and flavours - those which bring warmth, sweetness, earthiness, woodsiness, and even mind-blowing heat.  These are the ingredients which add nuance and complexity of flavour to dishes, both sweet and savoury, and evoke memories of meals and places past.

So get those cookbooks out or look at any of the appropriate online sources, choose any Diana Henry recipe for a dish that's Along the Spice Trail, and post your dish by Sunday 18 January.

Please remember to link a thumbnail image below, and leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your post.

New to IHCC?  Need help linking up?  Check out our Welcome page.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment below and we will get back with you.

If you missed our Mystery Box Madness theme last week, be sure to click on the links and check out all the wonderful dishes everyone made.

Kayi Korma Curry at my place. A little more mild than I'd like but still good.
