The Spice Master


And the winner is…

We have a TIE!

Congrats Joe Hoya and bobby!

But, the glory is not yours for the taking just quite yet.  There are no ties on ES so we shall have a cook off!

Joe Hoya, Bobby – ES challenges you to create a dish using three (3) of the spices from this Tunisian pack.  Your recipes will then be judged in our reoccurring feature, Who Cooked It Better and ES readers will be able to decide the true Spice Master.  Extra points for a Tunisian flare (not that I know what that means…)  Send your recipe and a picture to by next Friday COB.

Good luck!

    I have one of those spice packages from Tunisia. Would anyone be kind enough to explain each spice. I can’t believe that Safran Tunisien is Saffron. I’m thinking it’s some sort of food coloring. I would appreciate your expertise. Please help. Thank you.
