Product info

Explore the role that spices have played in defining our food and our culture in The Grammar of Spice. The ultimate cooking guide, this beautiful book takes a deep dive into the stories of sixty spices, tracing their place in history, geography, anthropology, politics, religion, art and more. From familiar kitchen standards like cayenne and vanilla to more exotic flavors like tamarind and sichuan pepper, each spice is featured in a brief yet illuminating profile, which outlines its origins, taste profile and its significance in the lives of the people who use it, as well as simple ways you can include it in your fare. As much a feast for the eyes as it is a helpful resource, each of these textual portraits is paired with a stunning custom illustration, inspired by the artwork found in designer and traveler Owen Jones’ 18th-century text, The Grammar of Ornament. A celebration of the world of flavors that spices have opened up to us for centuries, this fascinating book is a must-have for cooks, food-lovers and history-buffs alike.
