Cloves can make a spicy Christmas pudding

Cloves can be useful in puddings

One of the best things about culinary spices is the fact that they can bring something highly distinctive to almost any dish.

Indeed, our resident expert Chef Steve says that this kind of versatility is precisely why - along with herbs - he has such an unbridled passion for the ingredients.

With the festive season just around the corner, it would be advisable for professional caterers to be thinking about preparing certain dishes - such as Christmas puddings - well in advance.

It would be remiss not to think of bringing your own unique twist to the meal with spices.

Celebrity chef Nigella Lawson uses cloves in her recipe for Christmas puds - and this gives them a distinctive and spicy kick.

So why not think of little extras to add to your own creation? Cinnamon is a classic - but don't be afraid to experiment with something really outre.
