Cook with our oriental spices as in 1001 nights!
With our oriental spices from World of Taste you create a very special atmosphere while cooking. The smells and colours of the ingredients make us believe that we are at a medieval bazaar in Baghdad. However, the best thing about our spices, besides the taste, is that they are free of any additives and pollutants.
Oriental spices provide a variety of colours in the food:
Spices have long been one of the export hits of the Orient. In some epochs the tasty ingredients even serve as accepted means of payment and are sometimes worth more than gold and other precious metals. But why have we Europeans always been so fascinated by spices from the Orient? This is due, for example, to the great variety. Since ancient times, the Orient has been known for its abundance of exotic spices and the trade in them. This diversity is of course accompanied by a wide range of tastes.
In addition to the taste, these ingredients also give the dishes from the Orient an often unmistakable colour. The most famous example is without doubt a special crocus, which gives the dishes an unmistakable yellow colour, saffron. With particularly exotic tastes and colours, oriental spices pimp up many a meal. If you also want to give your dishes a special taste and colour, you should buy our oriental spices.
Spices from the oriental cuisine are also popular here:
Because of this eventful history of spices, some oriental ingredients have manifested themselves in our menu over the centuries. There are countless recipes which would be unthinkable without oriental spices. For example, the Christmas season would definitely be different without gingerbread spices. The spice mixture for this delicious pastry consists of cinnamon, cloves and other oriental spices. But we could not do without oriental spices only during the Christmas season. Cinnamon, for example, is an important baking ingredient all year round. In addition, there are many other recipes that only work with oriental spices. For example, we cannot imagine mashed potatoes or vegetable gratins without a pinch of nutmeg.
The oriental spices are transformed into fabulous blends:
In the Orient itself, i.e. in the Near East and the Arab world, the wonderful aromas of the individual spices have of course been known for much longer. The cuisine of the Orient has therefore produced some very tasty creations, including the fiery Harissa. This is a piquant spice paste that is popular throughout North Africa and firmly anchored in the food culture. With us you get the suitable, because authentic, spice mixture to this oriental classic. Harissa goes perfectly with rice dishes and couscous, but also tastes great as a spread on bread.
Another spice mixture from the Orient is Baharat. This spice mixture is also fiery and therefore completely to our taste. This slightly spicy taste is rounded off by cinnamon and nutmeg. However, there is no fixed recipe for Baharat, similar to curry. In terms of taste, the spice mixture for oriental Baharat from World of Taste goes well with meat, fish, vegetables, legumes, potatoes and rice.
Another oriental spice mixture is a Tunisian blend called Tabil. In the North African state the mixture of coriander, nutmeg, cloves and other spices is an integral part of the tradition. The taste of Tabil is slightly pungent, but the smell is sweet and spicy. The oriental spice mixture Tabil is particularly suitable for grilled or roasted meat.
Also from Tunisia (but also from Morocco) comes the spice mixture Ras El Hanout. The sweetish-spicy mixture consists of cubeb pepper, coriander and cardamom. You can use the Ras El Hanout spice mixture, for example, for North African meat dishes and couscous. The range of uses is really wide, even desserts can be spiced up with this oriental spice mixture in no time at all.
The spice mixture Baba Ganoush comes from Lebanon. The mixture consists among other things of cardamom, cumin and cinnamon. This combination provides an exotic and spicy taste. This is rounded off by a light citrus taste, which is produced by grated lemon peel. Traditionally Baba Ganoush is used for an eggplant paste. The Lebanese spice mixture is also excellent for preparing other vegetable dishes.
This and other spice mixtures from the Orient can of course also be found here.

Oriental spices for oriental coffee and tea:
Of course not only spices come from the Orient. The region is also home to mocha and chais. So it is obvious to combine these two traditions. In short: spiced coffee and tea. The combination of the slightly bitter taste of coffee and tea tastes fantastic with the aromas of the spice mixture Arabic Coffee Spice. This blend consists of cardamom, cinnamon and cloves. World of Taste's Arabic Coffee Spice tastes great in all Arabic coffees, in black tea and even in desserts such as tiramisu.
