Having a clear out of the cupboard the other day, I came across the ends of the Pukka Dukkah that I bought from Gourmet Spice Co last year, which made me think it was time I had a look at what else they had been up to. In case I needed to order something.
And now find myself very tempted by the Winter Spice Salt. I know that Christmas is over, but it’s certainly pretty darn cold outside here as I write, and I still crave those wintry flavours and aromas. This salt contains things like orange zest, star anise, cinnamon, allspice, cloves and then a few more delicious flavours, that I am not yet tired of. This would really add something to a rub for meat, even like a fairly regular chicken that you’re thinking of roasting this weekend.
I’d probably also stock up on the Spiced Aromatic Balsamic Vinegar, which was another purchase last year. It warms up salad dressings beautifully, and have used it blended with a bit of water to deglaze a pan after cooking steak, but also with sausages. Keeps regular dishes interesting.
A company worth keeping an eye on, both online and think you’ll find them at a larger number of food events in 2012. Meanwhile, I’m off to see what I can salvage from the bottom of the dukkah pot!
