My Spice Collection 2 – overview


My Spice Cupboard 2

Here are some of the herbs and spices I use regularly in my home-cooking.  I’m planning on sharing more of them with you, with ideas of how to use them in traditional Peruvian cooking as well as fusion and Scottish recipes.

I’ve written about my favourite, palillo (turmeric) here:


I’m very lucky that family post and bring me products from Latin America, as some herbs and spices are very difficult to find in Scotland.  Where I’ve been unable to find them, I’ll share the closest alternative with you.

There are so many delicious spices and herbs from Latin America and Spain, which I find can really add depth to your cooking, and offer a different flavour to the usual.  I hope you enjoy learning about them with me.
