Britain, Spice Up Your Food!

Britain, Spice Up Your Food!

Every felt your fish & chips lacked a certain something? Think the Yorkshire pud could do with livening up, or that your Shepherd’s Pie lacks flair? Well, chefs Cyrus Todiwala and Tony Singh believe that any traditional British dish would benefit from a dash of spice. Their new BBC2 series The Incredible Spice Men (starting on August 19th) sees the pair giving home cooking a “new lease of life” with exotic ingredients such as turmeric, cardamom and star anise. The recipes – which centre on accessible comfort food favourites – include a Scotch pie with ginger, garlic and coriander, fish batter spiked with turmeric, cumin and coriander, and nutmeg-infused treacle pudding. Looks like a good opportunity to liberate some of those dusty Schwartz jars that’ve languishing at the back of our cupboards for eons (on that note, have you seen Michael McIntyre’s gag about spice rack rivalries?!).
