Ras-el-Hanout is comprised of no less than fifteen herbs and spices that are roasted and mixed by hand. The spice mix contains warm, sweet flavours of cinnamon, cloves, mace and nutmeg. The addition of cardamom, coriander, allspice adds zest and zing to the blend! Whole rose petals and lavender are added at the end to impart pleasant, floral notes.
Passed down from generations, the highly esteemed Moroccan blend Ras-el-Hanout translates from Arabic to 'Top of the Shop'. It is believed that spice traders at Moroccan souks are in competition to sell the finest version.
Ras-el-Hanout is known as the essential tagine seasoning. The aromatic, complex flavours work well when stirred through boiled rice and couscous or rubbed into lamb. 33g
