I’ve been doing a lot of Moroccan and North African cooking lately and ras el hanout spice mix is used quite often.
This is one of my favorite spice blends simply because it’s never made exactly the same twice. You almost can’t do it wrong, instead, sometimes it’s much better than others. Sounds perfect for a cook like myself.
The name literally means top of the shop which means it’s the spice merchant’s very best blend. And the secret behind its ingredients and ratios is well-guarded. From ten to a hundred ingredients, depending.
