Spices are a complementary ingredient of cooking. These aromatic substances, coming from vegetables, herbs, roots, seeds, play the important role to flavour food and make it more appetizing and sometimes to preserve it. Each country has its own preferred spices: Italy cuisine loves Mediterranean herbs like thyme, rosemary, basil, parsley; India cuisine wouldn't be the same without curry; Mexico cuisine is strongly related to red pepper. In the photos you can find sacs of chilly, ginger roots and colourful powders.
