Spices


These some spices they were selling at supermarket and the daily question come out easily: do you like eat spicy? If yes what kind of spice and / or what kind of food do you prefer to eat with spice and which one spice? By myself I like curry :-)

Queste sono alcune spezie in vendita al supermercato e la domanda quotidiana vien naturale: vi piace mangiare speziato (piccante?) Se sì qual genere di spezia e / o quale genere di piatti e con quale spezia? Per parte mia mi piace il curry :-)

It's an interesting way to package the spices. Umm! I like many different kinds--depends what I'm cooking. Curry, ginger, cardamom, chili, cinnamon. Have you ever seen spices in an Indian market? Mounds of varied colours--beautiful.

I like spices but not hot spicy. I can't eat cajun foods. Nice shot and good question.

I eat the spices my wife of 52 years happens to put on the food she prepares. So far nothing has killed me. I think her cooking has something to do my my advanced age--I will be 73.

By the way, Fabrizio, I like this picture. The photo is very nice.

I like spices! These one that I prefer is the Paprika, with a tomato-sauce under some kind of noodles....And I love so much gingembre on a chiken's aglet!I'm hungry, now!

Often we buy spice in silly little packages, tumeric, chilli, cardomon,coriander, mustard seeds,- must do some cooking instead of blogs.

I like spices but I don't cook. I've never had curry (I know, where have I been?).

I love spicy foods! Mexican, Thai, Indian . . . if it's spicy hot or spicy mild. I've been going though a curry faze for the last couple years and fell in love with Garam Masala, a wonderful aromatic blend of cinnamon, cumin, cardamom, black pepper and more.

Oh the colours in this photograph. I can 'smell' the spices.

I love spicy food but not too 'hot' as then I don't taste the food but just the 'heat.' It should just enhance the food, for me, not invade it.

For me it depends. Pepper is without doubt the king of culinary spices for me - I use it all the time, different sorts and ground, whole, crushed depending on the food. However I go through phases depending on food, time of year etc. At the moment I'm in love with Hungarian Paprika - the hot(ish) pungent variety. Gives great aroma, taste and colour to dishes. Currently using it in long,long cooked meat casseroles, and marinated chicken with lime and ginger

I like hot spicy. And I like rice and chicken with curry.

But the most I like in those spicy are the beautiftul and vivid color.

Lovely photo, Fabrizio. I love spices (a picture is worth a thousand words, right? - and yes, I'm a neat freak). BTW, the English and Chinese tea caddies also contain spices. Do I use all those spices regularly? You bet! We seldom eat out.

Basil and rosemary, my favorites. Basil on pasta, rosemary on focaccia....
