Many of the most popular recipes of the modern world tend to be based in centuries of experimentation and refinement, and it means that while a pizza might seem like a fairly new creation, it actually started out hundreds of years ago in Italy.
Anyone with experience with cooking will attest to the fact that the flavours are not usually found in the ingredients, but in the spices and herbs that are used to introduce and enhance the flavours we love so much. Whether it’s for meat or a specific vegetable or even fruit, without a range of spices available, it’s almost impossible to add real flavour and depth to a dish.
We often hear about fine-dining restaurants that cost an arm and a leg to eat at. Part of this is the experience that patrons receive when visiting such an establishment, another part might be the training and skills of the chef making the food. But there’s also the ingredient list to take into account when eating at expensive venues.
