Discover how to use spices to amp up the flavor of your food and get foolproof recipes that put these simple techniques to work. Sprinkle a finishing salt you make from sea salt and herbs onto seared white fish fillets to make them special. Make a different roast chicken every week by applying a different rub. Learn the best spices to use in curries – and when to add them for fragrant (not dusty) results. Add flavor – and texture – with homemade blends (you'll eat your spinach when it's topped with pistachio dukkah). Infuse condiments with spices (try chipotle ketchup on a burger). And flavor baked goods and desserts with saffron, cardamom, dried lavender, or rose rather than just cinnamon.
