The Value Of Spice

There was a time at the peak of the Dutch East India Trading Company’s rule when nutmeg was worth its weight in gold.

Now that we can pick up a jar of it for less than the price of a cup of coffee, there’s no excuse to be eating bland food.

You can make magic with a cupboard full of spices, a tin of tomatoes and a kilogram of lentils.

If we have the privilege to choose what it is we eat, shouldn’t we endeavour to make the most of it?
