Fans of Yotam Ottolenghi’s Plenty and Jerusalem will delight in the “rich and insightful” spice profiles in these 75 recipes—from Seattle’s maven of world spices and blends (Boston Globe).

World Spice at Home brings the world’s exotic spices to your home kitchen to breathe new life into favorite, familiar, and traditional dishes with wonderful new flavors. Included are recipes to assemble unique spice blends that add wonderful dimension to roasted vegetables, simple grilled steaks, and even apple pie.
Transform a grilled ribeye steak using an Arabic baharat spice blend; add drama to your carrot cake using Kashmiri garam masala. Learn how to use Madras curry in a Northwest Fisherman’s Stew, or Moroccan harissa in a hearty vegetable soup. 
Spices add gratifying dimension to foods, and while the spice blends come from around the world, these recipes are friendly and familiar.

Praise For…

After explaining how to select, store, and blend whole fresh spices, spice shop owner Bevill (worldspice.com) and cookbook author Kramis Hearne (The Dutch Oven Cookbook) share 75 recipes designed to help readers add global flavors to their everyday cooking. Some recipes, such as Chinese five-spice shortbread cookies and crispy jicama and watermelon salad with sumac, offer just a hint of exotic spice, while others, like grilled salmon with za’atar and herb-caper sauce, are assertively seasoned. Using the table of contents and additional recipe lists, readers can easily browse recipes by course (e.g., small bites, soups and stews, sweets and breads) or by spice blend (e.g., curry, berbere, dukkah). VERDICT: Bevill and Kramis Hearnes’s spice blends, which contain 7–14 spices (compared to 40-plus in some ethnic cookbooks), taste superior to many premade and shelf-weary equivalents. Their approachable recipes offer home cooks a gentle introduction to new flavorings.

. . . a fresh, surprising collection of recipes that’s more than just a pretty scent. Bevill and Hearne’s thoughtfulness is obvious in the 50 pages of front matter, a glossary not just of spices, but of blends and how and where they can be found and used. Although many of the basic ingredient combinations here are not new, the seasoning is rich and insightful.

If you have ever explored Pike Place Market in depth you probably know about World Spice tucked down on Western Avenue directly behind the market. The rich smell of spices that waft from the storefront invite you in for another whiff. But deciding what to do with the spices is another story. Enter World Spice at Home: New Flavors for 75 Favorite Dishes, by World Spice owner Amanda Bevill and cookbook author Julie Gramis Hearne. The duo has paired up to bring exotic spices into your home kitchen for use in everyday dishes including soups, stews, brisket, vegetables and even sweets and breads . . . One of the most interesting sections of the book was the “Sweets & Breads” section that incorporated spices into cakes, truffles, cookies and even cornbread.

Authors Amanda Bevill, owner of World Spice Merchants by Seattle’s Pike Place Market, and Julie Kramis Hearne, a chef, writer and cooking instructor, have a world of redolent, palate-tempting ingredients to work from, as their introductory descriptions of spices from ajwain seed to vanilla bean prove. And it’s a joy just to flip through the book soaking up the considerable knowledge about spices and spice mixes, as well as their uses, that Bevill and Hearne impart.
