This exotic set of spices features heavily throughout Middle Eastern cuisine and will transform your kitchen into an aromatic paradise. The flavours of this region centre on a balance of sweet, tang, spice and earthiness. If you crave a Moroccan tagine or a Lebanese chicken shawarma, then these spices are where you begin. The delightfully tasty Sumac livens up dishes like hummus or fattoush salad and adds a splash of zest to grilled chicken, pork, fish or vegetables.
The first item in the A Taste of the Middle East spices gift box is a Aleppo Pepper, crushed for easy addition into marinades, rubs and sauce bases. Known for its fruity flavour and medium heat, the Aleppo Pepper is commonly found in meze, an assortment of small dishes.
Also included is Harissa Spice, a sumptuous dried, ground mixture of hot peppers, cumin, sea salt and garlic. Combine it with extra-virgin olive oil to create a flavourful paste that works wonders in meat marinades and falafel!
To bring depth to stew bases and sauces, try Ras el Hanout. A tangy, aromatic blend of ginger, cumin, cloves, allspice, coriander seed and chili, this unique spice mix creates a divine Middle Eastern flavour that will tantalize the tastebuds.
Finally, use the ground Sumac berry to liven up simple dishes like hummus or fattoush salad, or to add a splash of citric acidity to grilled chicken, pork, fish or vegetables.
The Taste of the Middle East spice set is highly aromatic, zesty and totally authentic. Sharpen your palate and step into a whole new world of cuisine.

Toasted Cumin Powder is probably the most frequently-used spice in any Indian kitchen, due to its intense smoky flavour and garlicky fragrance. Use it as a base for any spice mix, marinade or gravy.
Curry Powder is made from a mixture of finely-ground spices and herbs such as curry leaves, cumin, black pepper, chili, coriander and fenugreek, however the recipe varies from region to region. The blend gives a rich, earthy flavour to yoghurt or cream-based sauces, as well elevating delicate ingredients like chicken, lentils and fish.
