A book that celebrates all things spice, and the integral ways in which they shape what we eat.

Throughout her career spanning 25 years, well-known food critic and writer (and little-known collector of spice-grinders of eclectic origin) Marryam Reshii has had a relentless love affair with spices. Such has been her passion that she has travelled across the country, and to various corners of the world - crushing, grinding, frying and tasting - in a bid to understand every aspect of these magnificent ingredients. The result is The Flavour of Spice, a zesty narrative that brings together stories about the origins of spices and how they evolved in the cuisines we know and love, colourful anecdotes gleaned from encounters with plantation owners and spice merchants, and beloved family recipes from chefs and home cooks.

From the market yards of Guntur, India's chilli capital, to the foothills of Sri Lanka in search of 'true' cinnamon, and from the hillsides in Sikkim, where black cardamom thrives, to the saffron markets in the holy city of Mashad, Iran - this heady account of spices pulsates with exciting tales of travel and discovery, and an infectious love for the ingredients that add so much punch to our cuisines.
