Let Culinary Herbs Spice Up Your Life

Discerning cooks from around the world appreciate culinary herbs.  Culinary herbs and spices add zest to every dish served at every hour around the globe.  If you are making food products that will be resold, wholesale spices offer a great way to save money on all of your favorite ingredients.  Here are just a few ways that herbs and spices are used to increase the flavor and aroma of different regional cuisines.

Southern Cajun

Cajun dishes are very spicy.  Think of the South, and your mind will likely drift to dishes such as blackened fish, gumbo, jambalaya as well as soft-shelled crabs and crawfish.  The herbs and spices that you will find in an authentic Cajun spice mix varies from cook to cook, but many utilize the savory flavors of garlic, onion, cayenne pepper, black pepper, dry mustard, celery seed, cumin, paprika and thyme.

Southwestern United States

The states bordering Mexico often share the flavors that are featured in the many tasty regional cuisines of this beautiful country.  Dishes such as enchiladas, tacos and refried beans are perfectly suited to boldly flavored culinary herbs such as oregano, and spices like cumin, chile powder and crushed red pepper.

France

French cuisine features the foods that grow regionally in France.  French chefs have stunned the world with wonderful sauces and presentations, all of which are enhanced with the appropriate culinary herbs.  Normandy is a big apple-producing region of the country, and thus you would expect to find Apple tarte served there, rich with the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg.  Lorraine is known for its famous quiche.  This is a wonderful dish that can be easily prepared for a weeknight dinner, because it uses pantry staples such as flour for the crust, and look to your freezer for vegetables, seafood or chopped ham to add to the eggs and cream.  Seasonings can include herbs and spices such as thyme and coarsely ground black pepper.

Spain

Spain is known for its famous tapas, little dishes of appetizers.  However, main dishes abound as well, with seafood-rich paella, gazpacho or drinks such as sangria.  Gazpacho often features culinary herbs as well as spices such as garlic, onion, peppers and cumin.  Paella calls for herbs and spices like onion, saffron, garlic, parsley and salt to bring out the flavor of the seafood.

Restaurants

Restaurants utilize a wide range of wholesale spices used to season their customer’s favorite dishes.  Wholesale spices can include any of the aforementioned spices as well as a host of others.  Restaurants also often have related cafes or bistros, as well as bakeries, and these outlets also make use of wholesale spices.  Whenever you are preparing foods that will be resold to customers as part of your business, you can take advantage of excellent pricing on wholesale spices.

What are the top ten spices/herbs I should keep in my cabinet?

I just got married and we got an apartment together. I don’t know much about cooking; i can only follow steps from a box. What are some spices/herbs I should keep at hand while cooking. What spices go with which meats? Thank you!

Any spice can go good with any meat, but the 10 spices that I use most would be 1 – garlic/onion (good for breads and fish powder) 2 – Cinnamon (good for desserts and warm drinks) 3 – Oregano (good to sprinkle on any meal) 4 – Paprika (good for asian food or lentils) 5 – Rosemary (good for chicken rubs) 6 – Ginger (good for asian food, desserts, and warm drinks) 7 – Curry Powder (very spicy and good for anything else spicy) 8 – Basil – (same as oregano) 9 – Salt – (of course good for anything with just a little bit of flavor) 10 – (good for anything again) Herbs should only be kept for 6 months at most or they will get old and bad.
