These barberries add a tart complimentary flavor to sweet and savory dishes. It is frequently used in dishes featuring saffron.
Cardamom carries a strong aroma and pungent flavors of lemon, smoke, and mint.
This pomegranate sour paste is a molasses that Yotam Ottolenghi suggests cooking meats in to achieve a sweet flavour.
This Rose Harissa has a slow-burning chilli heat, balanced with sweet smokiness that adds real depth of flavour to any dish. It is one of our signature ingredients and bestsellers, having been developed from a secret recipe back in 1995. The name Harissa comes from the Arabic harasa, meaning ‘to pound’ or ‘break into pieces’. It is not far from a straight translation of the Italian pestare, to ‘pound’ or ‘crush’ – which is where we get the word ‘pesto’ from.
Made from 100% hulled sesame seeds.
Urfa Biber is a Turkish chile that will add a fruity, smoke to your dish. Notes of tobacco and chocolate build, as does the heat.
An authentic Middle Eastern mix of herbs and spices, featuring sumac, thyme, oregano, sesame seeds and salt. This blend is ideal for marinades, rubs, and spreads.
Featuring a molasses-like richness, black garlic is both sweet and savory with tangy undertones. Similar to a soft dried fruit, this black garlic has a dense supple texture that can be sliced or spread.
Lemons are salted and then pickled in their own juices, creating the perfect addition to a number of recipes.
With a flavor reminiscent of citrus or dried unripe grapes, Sumac is a spice made from the ground dried berries of the Sumac shrub.
