Use of spices explained for foodies

By: Bill Troy

The way to a man's heart is through his stomach as they say. Well not only is this true for man it is true for everyone. Good tasting food is a must for it being palatable. Purely bland food is a tough nut to crack. You can have the bland food for a day and not more than that and will crave for something tastier than that.
Spices and herbs actually provide that very much needed taste to the food. Now for the spices to be added you need to make sure that the spices are fresh and also the adequate quantities to be added.
The spices that we use generally come in powdered form. These are also available in leaves form. Make sure that you have adequate mix for the spices to add to the food.
The compatibility of spice with certain types of food is a must to know. You should know which spice to use with which food. This operates on the same principle as the wine does which is you should know what wine to serve with what kind of food.
Less or more of spices both are dangerous and that is why make sure that you get the quantity right. Put in a wrong proportion and the food will whack out of taste and flavor. There are enough websites out there in the internet world as well as there are enough recipe books to help you out.
But take precaution as all these recipes are overly commercial types and if you need to cook the food in a home cooked style then you definitely need to rely on your instincts. Also take help of your friend or neighboring aunt for advice if you are not sure.
Packaging of spices is very important as that retains the freshness, taste and the flavor of the spices. So make sure that you buy spices of a good brand and once if you opened them make sure to close them properly or seal the mouth of the bottle or the pack correctly
