Our Cassia Cinnamon and lamb
Lamb and cinnamon is a classic pairing that is commonly used in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines. The sweet and warm flavor of cinnamon complements the rich and savory taste of lamb, creating a well-balanced and delicious flavor profile. Cinnamon is often used as a spice rub or marinade for lamb dishes, and can also be added to sauces or stews for added depth of flavor. Whether you’re grilling lamb chops, slow-cooking a lamb shoulder, or preparing a hearty lamb tagine, adding a touch of cinnamon can elevate your dish to new heights.
Our Smoky Mix and potato
Our Smoky Mix is a versatile spice blend that adds depth and complexity to a wide range of dishes. Composed of Sweet Long Chili powder, Kampot Peppers, and Salt, it creates a perfect balance of smoky, sweet, and savory flavors. This combination is particularly delicious when used to season potatoes. Whether you’re roasting potatoes in the oven as hasselback, frying them in a pan, or grilling them on the barbecue, or making a purée, adding this spice blend will take your potato dish to the next level. The smokiness of the mix complements the natural earthy flavor of potatoes, while the Sweet Long Chili powder and Kampot Peppers add a touch of sweetness and heat. Try this combination on your next potato dish and enjoy a burst of delicious flavors.
Our Green Chili Duo Sauce and eggs
Our Sauce made of two Green Chilies is a delicious and versatile condiment that can add a kick of heat and flavor to many dishes. One particularly tasty pairing is with devilled or poached eggs. The heat of the green chilies in the sauce perfectly complements the creaminess of the eggs, creating a harmonious balance of flavors. The sauce can be used to add a zing to your devilled egg filling, or simply drizzled over your poached eggs for an extra burst of flavor. Whether you’re serving them as a breakfast or brunch dish, this pairing is sure to impress your taste buds.

This pairing can be used to add a twist to classic chocolate desserts like mousse or truffles.
