Spiced: Unlock the Power of Spices to Transform Your Cooking by America’s Test Kitchen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As usual for a book by America’s Test Kitchen, there’s a good combination of educational content and tasty recipes. I’ve already made a few recipes from this book, most recently the spiced ragu which had a unique taste due to its use of Five Spice Powder. It was not out of place, after all, for a while the spice trade passed through Italy. But it was also not a boring same-old Italian recipe. It went over pretty well with the family, as well.
If you’re the experimental type, looking for some spice blends and infusions you can use creatively in your recipes, this is a great book. If you’re among America’s Test Kitchen’s target audience – not yet experimenting on your own and requiring specific recipes – it’s yet another great book by them.
