Spices add unique flavouring to dishes says author

Spices add plenty of flavour

Culinary herbs and spices add "unique flavours" to dishes, it has been claimed.

Writing for Trinidad and Tobago's Newsday, Seeta Persad explained that food is no longer "a basic need for human beings".

Instead, it is something that has become an art and requires herbs and spices to give it plenty of extra taste.

Ms Persad stated that some of the seasonings often used in cuisine from her part of the world include basil, thyme, mustard seeds, pepper, saffron and tarragon.

Cinnamon is also a popular spice and the author noted that as well as bringing flavour to a recipe, it has a number of health benefits.

The substance "disperses heat, stop[s] pain, increases sweat and gets rid of colds and nausea," she said.

These comments echo those recently made by Anita Marlay in an article for Lade News Online.

She claimed food would lack colour and fragrance if it was not for spices, as they add "zing" to recipes.
