For thousands of years, the Middle East held the secrets to spices that Europeans would bankrupt themselves to acquire. The alchemic knowledge of roasting, grinding and blending the freshest and most fragrant spices was handed down from father to son, mother to daughter over hundreds of generations.
Our spice blends are roast and ground in small batches for optimum freshness and we hope that after tasting them you will recognise just what made these ingredients more valuable than gold.
Our tongues can only detect four flavours, sweet, sour, salt and bitter. It is our noses that detect the subtleties of flavour and enhance our love of eating, so it is little wonder that aromatics are so important to great Levantine cuisine.
Every region in the middle-east scents its dishes in a different way and Arabica's range of natural aromatics and flavourings will lead you on a perfumed adventure into a whole new realm of cooking.
Preserving foods in the middle-east is not merely a matter of storage, it adds a whole new range of colours to the palette of the culinary artist. Texture, too is a vital part of the feast-creators armoury. Pickles, enrich and flavour the eating experience.
The start of a new range of teas, inspired by our epicurean explorations of spice souks, and warming cups of chai shared by gracious hosts on our travels.
