Importance of correct spices outlined

Spices can improve the flavour of a recipe

Culinary spices can make a tremendous difference to the quality of a meal if they are used correctly, it has been noted.

In an article for ABC Canberra, James Vyver explained that when the ingredients are "artfully applied", they can "lift the bland to the magnificent, the tedious to tremendous culinary heights".

However, he added there is an art to discovering which spices work best in which meals, noting a certain amount of trial and error is needed to get the most out of the substances-  which may include garam masala, cumin and cinnamon.

Mr Vyver added spices have been in demand for thousands of years, while the trading of exotic powders grown around the world formed the basis of many European empires.

Their history is currently being explored in The Spice Trail, a BBC Two show presented by Kate Humble that looks at the origins of some of the most popular spices.
