Tis the Spicy Season

During the holiday season, spices are a great addition that creates unforgettable tastes and scents that we cherish. Common holiday spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and cardamom are the stars of our culinary traditions. Each spice offers its unique flavour profile and has great cultural attachments worldwide. 

Cinnamon, with its sweet warmth, has been cherished for centuries and symbolizes love and comfort in many cultures. The subtly sweet and nutty essence of Nutmeg has been a symbol of abundance and good fortune. There are many interesting historical facts about the use of these spices in holiday dishes, and how they’ve shaped festive tables worldwide, adding depth and tradition to every bite.
