What is Vadouvan?


Vadouvan is an Indian spice mixture, comprising of onions, garlic, cumin seeds, mustard seeds and fennel seeds. This spice mixture is traditionally dried in the sun and then milled.


What is an Amalfi lemon?


Amalfi lemons come from Amalfi on the coast of southern Italy. Not only the aroma and flesh of the fruit, but also the zest has a markedly more intensive flavour than a customary lemon.


What is black garlic?


Black garlic is actually normal white garlic, which has changed its colour due to a special process of fermentation. This process takes place over a time period of several weeks under conditions of both high humidity and temperature.

What are tamarinds?

Tamarinds are the pods of the tamarind tree which probably originates in Africa. They have a characteristically pleasant sweet and sour taste.


What is matcha?

Matcha is a ground Japanese green tea, which has a sweet aroma. The riper the leaves, the more bitter the taste becomes. Matcha has been used in Japanese cooking for some time and is used as an ingredient in many milk and fruit dishes.


What is ruby chocolate?

Besides plain, milk and white chocolate, there is the less well-known ruby chocolate, which is recognized as a variety in itself. Its pink colour arises from a special roasting and fermentation process. It has a particularly harmonious fruity taste.
