So, what is ras-el-hanout?

Ras-el-hanout is a fragrant and complex North African spice blend that adds depth and richness to dishes. The name translates to "top of the shop," indicating the use of the highest quality spices. The blend typically includes over 20 spices, including cumin, coriander, cinnamon, ginger, and turmeric, but the exact combination varies depending on the region and the spice merchant. Ras-el-hanout is often used to flavor tagines, stews, couscous, and rice dishes, imparting a warm, spicy, and slightly sweet flavor with floral and earthy undertones. Its versatility makes it a must-have in any well-stocked spice cabinet.
